UI scaling for MacOS was added in Photoshop CS6.
UI scaling for Windows was added in Photoshop CC 2014.

You would have to upgrade to a version that supports UI scaling on your OS.

Photoshop CS5.5 is older than the high resolution displays on either platform, and thus had no support for UI scaling.

That sucks big time. One tiny upgrade would probably have solved it.

Enable the UI scaling in preferences, and possibly enable the UI scale/text scale choice in the OS settings.
