This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Flaky skin and dandruff can be due to the seborrheic dermatitis.
This is an inflammation of the scalp that can be precipitated by the fighting.
You can try over the counter Selsun blue shampoo 3 times weekly for treatment.
The pain, numbness and tingling are likely related to the nerve injury on the scalp.
This may take several weeks to heal,
However, you should watch out for any red warm rash which can signify bacterial infection.
These symptoms can be treated with an anti inflammatory medication like Advil.
Also vitamin B12 and B6 supplements may be helpful.
Forgot to Add, it is Very Tender as well.
do you notice any rash or cut?
Haven't had a chance for My Mother to look
Not sure how else to tell
try a mirror
I wasn't able to see it via a mirror
see tenderness can be suggestive of infection.
I will suggest you to see your doctor for a clinical evaluation.
Antibiotic will be required for infection.
Unfortunately that will have to wait for someone to look at it I'm Guessing
yes see above
I do have a weakened Immune System so that is likely
Would it be a Topical Antibiotic or Systemic?
systemic will be required.
augmentin or clindamycin.
Okay, that is better, I dislike Topical Treatments
Well, it appears, for the time, all has been Addressed, though would Redness qualify as a Rash?
yes it will since painful.
My Mother did take a Quick Look a while ago I just remembered, not Detailed, but she said it was Red
do not take a chance.
I will have it Looked At, Thank You. (On a side note, I like Your "Name", Same as Mine Would be if/when I become a Doctor, Same Initials Basically, D.R.J.)
And the Same to You
Have a Nice Day!
