Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

Well as you describe,possibly it's Seborrheic Dermatitis.

Try Nizoral-AD shampoo and leave for 5 minutes on the scalp after working up a lather on alternate days.

And use head & shoulder shampoo alternately.

Also take OTC Claritin.

Start a multivitamin supplement.

As you have previous history of fungal infection so you should see your dermatologist again to get proper treatment.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
Waiting for your response.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
