My dd has these red flaky patches on her scalp that are itchy. They are the size of a dime or larger. I put some almond oil on them last night and will see if they are any different this morning, my guess is that they wont be, She has had them in the winter for years, but this year they are really bad.
Anyone have suggestions? I probably wouldn't really want to use a commercial medicated shampoo. I think they are sore, so I didn't try TTO, but if they are soothed by the almond oil, I will try it.

It could be ringworm of the scalp. If it is, you can use nizoral ad.

Yes it could be ringworm, or it could also be psoriasis. Maybe try some calendula ointment to soothe it.
