I've had these open sores on my heads for years now. Nothing seems to work. I went to a pediatrician who then sent me to a dermatologist. They first gave me a cream to put on it that only made my hair gross. Then they gave me a foam that burned like ***l. When they realized that wasn't working they tested one of the scabs and ruled out a bunch of things along with lupis. The they thought it was psoriasis and gave me some pill that made me sick. The last thing they tried was give me a steriods shot but that didn't work so I stopped going. Anyone have any ideas what this is? I've tried everything I could think of like try different shampoo, try dandruff shampoo, change my pillow, my grandma even had me use dead sea salt. I don't have any other obvious symptoms but these sores. They are all over my head and they hurt sometimes and are itchy.

  • I first got it when I was in 7th grade so it's not the cell phone and we just recently got cordless phones. I'm not sure but I don't think I had a dog yet either. Thanks though. I just don't know what else to do because doctor visits are so expensive anymore and I can't afford it with college and stuff. Well the doctor visits didn't seem to help anyway. Thanks for trying though.
