I have had a problem with choosing the right shampoo for over a year. After each, my scalp is either itchy, or after washing my hair, painful small ulcers pop up. I've tried washing my hair with baby shampoos, chamomile extract from the pharmacy, a delicate shampoo called Emolium, then even intimate hygiene gel or yolk only. No shampoos can solve my problem. In addition, I observe increased hair loss.

I suggest using pharmacy shampoos designed for allergy sufferers. They contain emollients (moisturize the skin, soothe irritations) and are detergent-free. If symptoms persist, an appointment with a dermatologist will be required to implement the appropriate therapy.
