recurring dry scalp


i have had a dry flaky scalp for about two years is on and off most of the year . im young and have short hair. i use NIZ shampoo now an again when it is worse and that seems to clear it up after a few weeks but then after a few months it just comes back!! is the niz shampoo damaging at all and is there anything i can do to prevent it? i can never get an appointment to a dermotologist as they are constantly booked up and dont take this serious... please can you recommend something!!!!!!

Dear Jon
You can use Niz shampoo all the time or if it works out too expensive, switch to another kind of anti-dandruff shampoo when this is better - it is a kind of ( genetic or inborn) eczema, so from time to time you may need to go back to the Niz again. See
