i was diagnosed with PCOS when i was about 13, but i haven't had a lot of the symptoms in years. except that hormones can probably be blamed for the amount of flaking going on in my scalp area. i get terrible, terrible red patches that ooze on my scalp that are incredibly itchy. the doctor has given me all kinds of treatments, but they have not been working the last 6 months. i have dandruff, and i'm just miserable. really awful.
i thought maybe it was the devachan products irritating my scalp or my leave-in, but i've been using them for years, and the scalp issue has just re-reared it's head in the last year and gotten really bad in the last few months. i don't know what to do!
