Let me brief you.
Dandruff is a common condition. But in a few cases, the dandruff flakes results in soreness, itching, rashes and skin lesions due to inflammatory response.
Without a clinical examination, it is difficult to predict if you have just dandruff (seborrhea) or the seborrheic dermatitis.
Anyway the treatment involves use of topical antidandruff measures.
I don't see any harm in you continuing the shampoo for long term
since it has been effective.
You can shampoo every alternate days or once in 3 days.
Hair thinning and fall is most likely secondary to dandruff.
If symptoms don't improve with regular shampooing, you should consult the dermatologist again for detailed evaluation.
