I have had patches of sebhorrheic dermatitis on my scalp since I was little but since I started using Monoxidil for my hair loss it has spread over my entire scalp. My doctor perscribed the strongest medication that she could prescribe (clobetasol propionate) and it isn’t working at all. I just started using the monoxidil 3 months ago and was wondering if my scalp will eventually adjust and stop itching and flaking as bad?
It sounds like you are reacting to the minoxidil, which can increase the flaking of the scalp. You are probably not a candidate for minoxidil, so try stopping it for a week or two and see if the problem goes away. When people react to this medication, it usually does not get better and may actually get worse. Long term use of topical steroids are risky, so be careful.
