I have small boils with itching on scalp. Was prescribed candida tvs suspension. After application complete relief obtained. But now again the boils with itching has resumed please suggest oral medication and / or medicated shampoo I preferably do not want to use any suspension on scalp fearing it may cause baldness the earlier doctor in another town on visit there had prescribed the candida tvs suspension saying it's infestation of tinea versicolor.

Yes you have to use local tablets for fungal infection and local suspension.
