Hi! XXXXXXX

Thank you for posting the query,

Treatment of dandruff depends upon the severity of dandruff.Various anti dandruff shampoo are available for the same like :
1) ketocanzole 2% shampoo
2) Cyclopiroxiolamine shampoo
3) Sebowash shampoo

These shampoo should be used twice a week only .

If this doesn't help then one can try topical steroid lotion as well as an adjutant to shampoos.

If more sever then oral anti fungal can also be added to the list .

And lastly if it doesn't respond to the above then oral retinoids can also be tried even though the above methods are more effective.

Hope I've answered your query.

Should you have additional concern regarding the same ,I would be happy to address it.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Regards,
Dr.Bharat chawda XXXXXXX specialist, Dermatology.
