Red, painful, burning scalp with hair loss

I am a 28yo female and I have been losing my hair since September 9, 2011. I had big white bulbs attached up untill about 3 weeks ago and now the white bulbs are smaller and some I dont see any bulbs. Hair strands are also much thinner now.

I applied a hair color remover to my hair in September and thats when the itchy scalp and hair loss started.my scalp didnt produce oil for almost 2 months. Then came the red and burning scalp once my scalp started producing oil again. I found that laying down relieves a lot of the burning and inflammation.
The first derm I saw said he didnt see anything wrong with my hair or scalp except for some dandruff. He told me my scalp was red because I kept touching it and said I had plenty of hair (he was almost completely bald himself). He said it looked like telogen effluvium and it would probably stop in less than 6 months. But he gave me a topical steroid (fluconiside?) in case there might be inflammation. The steroid made my scalp a lot worse and caused a bunch of bumps to appear. I called and told about the side effects and he told me to take claritan for 6 weeks and come back if it didnt work... I found a new dermatologist a month and half later.

This derm acted more concerned and diagnosed me with seb dermatitis and psorasis. She gave me nizoral 2% shampoo and clobestol foam. The shampoo seemed to help at first and so did the steroid but then my scalp started burning evern worse. So I called and reported side effects and she put me on an antibiotic for 7 days for possible infection.

After the antibiotic, the itching has gone away. I have also had a scalp biopsy done which the derm said was only seb. dermatitis. But I cant see how that is all if anti-fungal shampoo haven't helped. I have tried every shampoo from prescription nizoral to baby shampoo. I have even tried all natural shampoo that soothed my scalp but all the natural oils clogged my follicles. Everything leaves me with a bright red and inflammed scalp after washing.

Any thoughts as to what else could be causing this? any suggestions would be helpful.
