    Hi there


    Thanks for taking the time to share a photo.  Unfortunately I am not a doctor or a dermatologist.


    If this is in the scalp area your mom could be right.  If this is scalp psoriasis here is an article on what may help.


    It may also be eczema on your scalp.


    You really need a dermatologist or doctor to look at this to see what is the cause and to get appropriate treatment. 


    Let us know if you need any more information or resources.  I would schedule an appointment soon.


    Thank you for your question.
