Hi Christy, in doing research I started using T-Gel Shampoo ( 0.5% Coal Tar.

My dermatologist recommended, DHS Zinc Shampoo

With the use of either one, I was told to rotate with Head & Shoulder dandruff shampoo.

I found a lot of information & resources on the National Eczema Society website.

Hope this helps a little!

I completely get what your going through. My head itches so bad. I've had this condition on my skin since about 2010. I can pretty much keep it under control. But as of a couple of months ago I have it on my scalp. I didn't know what in the world it was at first. I've got everything under the sun and still haven't figured it out yet. I'm thinking of getting a haircut since my hair is long and maybe taking some of it off will help?. What type of shampoo has worked for anyone? Thanks n God bless

I feel your pain especially because I started dealing with this for the very first time in February of this year. During the same time I was being treated for Atopic Dermatitis all over the rest of my body! Like you I was depressed & frustrated, but I didn’t give up. Through my own research, I found a couple of herbal creams that helped. Meanwhile, I also found a great barber to give me a good buzz cut. At first it was hard to accept, but then I noticed even with the spots, that not having all that hair allowed my scalp to breathe more and soon my scalp started to heal. I also noticed that as my hair started growing out that the spots were more noticeable and my scalp started to itch more. So I decided to embrace my cut and go every few weeks to keep it that way. My scalp is doing so much better now and I feel a lot more positive. Now if I could only get the rest of my body to follow suit!😀. Know that when you look in the mirror, you’re seeing a beautiful and very positive woman looking back at you.👀😜
