What treatment is effective for eczema on the scalp?

Its starter nearly 2 years ago and at first it wad due to dandruff but then i started developing sores and scabs on my scalp due to my itching. I’ve tried to be discreet about it as possible especially in public and i sometimes feel a bit embarress cuz i don’t want others to think i got lice. It drives me crazy at night most of the time.

Thirteen year old dealing with eczema for seven years.

Hello,
I am trying to help my thirteen year old get her eczema under control. Her arms are red and where not red, mostly white patches. We have tried every lotion. This year it spread to her knees.
