My 3 year old daughter has been suffering with scalp issues for the past year. I took her to the doctor about a year ago she had swollen glands behind the ear and she had a very irritated scalp. The doctor said she was allergic to the products I was putting in her hair. She wanted to prescribe something but I refused because I figured what ever she prescribed would dry her hair out. So i tried the sulfer products and none of them worked. I started using a product by Taliah Wajid and it helped. She didnt scratch as much long as her hair was shampooed weekly. Three months ago she started to develop I lot more irritation. Her scalp begin to develolp a oily yellow flaky substance almost like cradle crap. I took her to see another doctor which diagnosed her with scalp ringworms. I didn't beleive because I didnt see the rings in her scalp. But I went along with it. The doctor prescribed an oral medication that she takes once a day. It has been 5 weeks and I dont see any change. I don't know what do. Has anyone experienced this? I was told not to put any oils on her scalp. What do you think? I dont want my daughter to lose her hair.
Hmm, just read ur problem and I remembered last 3 years when we came to holidays in miami (we leave in holland/the netherlands), the kids of my brother in law (boys) had this ringworm, and when we got back, after a week or so..my son started to show the symptoms too..so we went to the doctor, even specialist at a certain moment, after using this creams wich didnt help , so went to a dermatologist and he described this medication for him, wich he had to take for months. So first of all it is very contagious, so be very carefull, if u have other kids or even urself, that u don't use the same towel with her etc. Also I am an african for origin and we have lots of creams for ringworms..wich u can use to process this healing quick, cos i dont want to disappoint you, but it took months before it all went away, nd fortunately it was my son, so he is always bald, but for ur girl..pls try to find and african american hairshop overthere and ask for special creams for it..cos i came to know later that there are indeed creams for it, so when i applied it, it healed quicker. I wish u a lot of luck nd i can only imagine how u feel..
