My scalp has been peeling for quite sometime in three

Customer Question
My scalp has been...

My scalp has been peeling for quite sometime in three different spots. I've been seen by 2 walk in clinic s a regular doctor and a nurse practitioner at a dermatologist now and been on three different antibiotics. It hasn't fully cleared up 100 percent. These spots grow back dead skin everyday and peel off they won't clear up and stop growing it's caused baldness on these spots. Im very insecure about all this and don't know what to do.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the spots better or worse?

This started in September 2016. The spots I peel off they get worse when I do that but the skin grows right back and I can't stand having this on my head.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I have been upfront about everything.
