Thanks for the query.
Ya you can use desonide lotion. It is very mild steroid.
Use it once daily in night.
Please dont use any oil. It will aggravate the dandruff. You can use conditioner after shampooing. Triflow is a good conditioner.
Let me know if you have any other doubt. You can put up a direct query to me.
Thank you.
