Due to personal probelms, I was taking a shower once every 10 days. I had dandruff on my hair. However, since yesterday, I noticed two small cuts on my scalp. Is this a cause for concern? I just showered right now using Maximum Strength Head And Shoulders
shampoo which contains Selenium Sulfide, which the bottle says fights against dandruff and sebhemorraic dermatitis. Will this help? What should I do now? Thank you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
