Sensitive scalp after anti-lice treatment
Dear doctor

My 11 year old daughter washed her hair for a few days after head lice was a problem at school, but she washed it too much, or too often and now her scalp is red and sensitive/sore.

What can we do to alleviate this problem, please?

Thank you very much.

Dear Mielie,
Get some Betnovate scalp application and put on her scalp twice a day to ease the inflammation.
