Scalp problems or conditions can be minor issues or infections that affect the skin on the top of the head. Dandruff and oily scalp are the most common problems. Luckily, these conditions can be treated or controlled with over the counter solutions. However, a scalp condition can also be much more serious and persistent often requiring a visual consultation with a physician specializing in skin and scalp disorders. Depending on the severity of the condition, a physician will be able to prescribe a treatment plan that will offer relief from irritation and discomfort.
