Hi nicolewoods1,

My daughter tends to have a flaky scalp and she also gets small pinkish/red sores. I have taken her to a dermatologist, and she said that it is eczema. My daughter has had eczema since she was born (she is a teenager now), but it seems to get worse in the warmer months. It also gets bad if she is in the sun without a hat on.

Is your sore pinkish/red? The last time we went to the doctor, she gave her a prescription for Beta-Val (a clear liquid that she puts on the sores). A few times/month she also uses Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment. The sores seem to come and go.

Have you ever had this before?
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
