Hi, your scalp needs to be examined to rule out dry scalp conditions which are treated with stronger medicines. Ketoconazole shampoo helps in treatment of dandruff. Avoid oiling your scalp. Use a mild shampoo like triclenz first and anti dandruff shampoo later. Do see your local dermatologist or consult online for further assessment and advice.

Dandruff is caused by malassezia furfur, a normal commensal on the skin, meaning everybody has it all the time. Most people have no symptoms. But in case of some people there is an overgrowth due to their particular sebum constitution and this manifests as dandruff, seborrhoeic dermatitis etc. It usually gets worse in winter drier climates. Better in summers. The only way to make sure there is no over growth of the fungus and no symptoms is regular use of antifungal shampoos/lotion in a frequency suited to your particular requirement that is 1-3 times a week. This can be found out by trial method. In case of very severe cases antifungal tablets may be taken which can have an effect for 3-4 months. For more details contact me.

Yes dandruff can also lead to increased hair fall. Avoid oiling of scalp. You can use noskurf lotion at night and keep it overnight and wash your scalp next day with a ketoconazole salicylic acid based shampoo.

Use saldan shampoo for dandruff. Apply it over your scalp 15 mins before washing. Wash it off and then wash your scalp with a gentle shampoo like Triclenz. Avoid leaving oil over the scalp overnight.

Hello lybrate-user! sometimes dryness of scalp too causes itching. For a healthy hair healthy scalp is needed. Have a balanced nutritious diet. Include nuts and fruits in your diet. Moisturise scalp with almond oil/ olive oil mixed with castor oil. Apply tea tree oil or you can mix it with shampoo. Use anti dandruff shampoo only twice a week. Anti dandruff shampoo containing zinc pyrithione, sulphate and zinc oxide, selenium are active ingredients you can apply.

I am 21 year old male and I had a dry skin and scalp for the past 6 7 years which in time lead to dandruff and then seborrheic dermatitis and eczema, flaky skin, red skin/ irritation on my face, scalp and other parts. I am getting treatments from different dermatologist since past 2.5 years and almost all of them always advised me different types of anti fungal containing ingredients such as ketoconazole, ciclopirox olamine, zinc pyrithione, salicylic acid, fluconazole, terbinafine, fluticasone etc in different forms such as shampoos, creams, sprays, tablets. Now the thing is that almost 80% of the antifungal does their work, cleans the flakes and rashes but as soon as I discontinue these products, all the symptoms and flakiness tends to come back the very next day. All of these antifungal cleans the flakes but they do not really help in stopping them from coming back. I am very frustrated right now because you can not really use tons of these every single day for the rest of your life (and you should not they have side effects). This one doctor gave me an adequate reason after the blood test was that my blood eosinophil count was higher (536) than normal range (40-440). I could really really use some treatment or advice regarding how to stop these symptoms from coming back, thank you.
