Q. my daughter gets a flaky scalp - comes and goes, this bout is worse than previous. Any advice/help please Her scalp is very dry & flaky - and has come about very quickly this time round. She is 14 years of age. She has with past treatments used ketopine shampoo and nizoral cream - ketoconazole 2%w/w.
