dry skin on neck related to no 'pooing?

just recently, i've gotten this irritating patch of dry, flaky skin on the back of my neck. i asked my mom and she didn't know where it was from and i used to have it as a baby. then, she said it was from not shampooing :roll: i think she just said that to get me to shampoo again. but, could my hair routine/products be connected to the dry skin?

politics is like me and my buddy going hippo hunting. we shoot a hippo and it falls on us. now, instead of using our joint effort of pushing the hippo off of us, we arue for 5 1/2 years on who's idea it was in the first place to go hippo hunting.

    If you had it from a baby before I doubt anything you're doing now is the cause of it unless you have an ingredient or food allergy that's acting up.
    Maybe it's just the dry weather

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    have you changed anything else? New lotion or something?

    I don't see how NOT shampooing could do that. Maybe an allergic reaction to a conditioner that you leave in your hair or a styling product???

    I've used face lotions on my neck that have caused an itchy, dry patch. I guess whatever was in the lotion irritated my skin.

    It could be tinea versicolor...basically its a harmless fungus that, as I understand it, is on everyone's body, some more than others... people tend to notice it more in summer I think - white spots, especially right after tanning. I have been getting it this winter on my arms and shoulders...Do a google search of images, and see if that's what it looks like..HTH!
