Can a bacterial infection be causing my dandruff and itchy scalp?
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

dandruff and itchy scalp most often is due to a low level skin fungal infection on the scalp

due to sometimes dry or oily hair oil glands under the skin.

Will my hairloss resolve once the infection is clear? I'm on terbinfine will this medication work
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

terbinfine is an antifungal agent

I can't see the white spot on your nose to tell if it is a fungal infection or not.

you didn't upload a photo.

I just uploaded two pictures of the white spot in my nose
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

inside of your nose would be rare for fungal infections.

is it tender or sore?

it could be from a blocked nose hair or blocked gland in the nostril

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It doesn't hurt. It's not hear my hair of my hairs in my nose. It'sdeeper inside
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

the photo is very blurry.

it looks like dried mucus possibly

it would be unusual to have a fungal infection there inside of the nose.

These are the red itchy bumps I get on my back, chest and neck sometimes near my hairline or on my scalp
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

these look like blocked skin pores or maybe some mild acne.
