I have been diagnosed with contact dermatitis. My scalp is draining like crazy! So much so that when the doctor came in to see me (Mind you I took a shower an hour before seeing him), and he asked if I was wearing hair gel. I wasn't.. My scalp had drained so much in that hour that my hair was caked to my head. I need to know how to get this pus out of my hair without making my condition worse! I tried washing it with shampoo and my hair is still rock solid. Should I cut my hair? Also, I am still swollen even after the anti-inflammatory they gave me at the hospital, should I be worried?
