You are suffering from atopic dermatitis as well as seborrhoeic dermatitis. It is not a curable condition. It will come and go. You have to maintain your skin by applying moisturizer like Venusia max lotion twice daily. For scalp apply Keraglo AD shampoo twice weekly, wash after keeping 30 mins. There is only relief but no complete cure.

You are suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts receeding from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. It is usually accompanied by severe dandruff which we call seborrhoea. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is the best. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects of DHT on the hair roots. Please call me or contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting. I can give guidance and then you can continue treatment on your own.

Hi lybrate-user. Dandruff is mostly because of a kind of skin didseae. Like Seborrhoic dermatitis or psoriasis or pytiriasis. So it needs proper internal treatment to cure it permanently. Use of shampoos and oil will not help. You can consult me through Lybrate. Till then Apply Cochleria Q and Badiaga Q.
