acne and dandruff is due to oily skin
stop the use of toxic and oily soaps shampoo creams ointments body application materials like face wash hena dyes etc
food you eat should be non oily non greesy and non fatty and non spicy
lot of warm water
astart antifungal fluconazole 150 m once a week for 3 months as the oily skin is associated with fungus in scalp and leads to dandruff
if the acne increases take course of minocycline 50 mg od for 7 days
if you can stop milk and diary for 3 months
apply clindamycin gel bd
clamine od and tretinoic acid gel at night
switch light off after the gel application as it reacts with light
apply antifungal solution at night and wash with shampoo whitch is non oily and non greesy
do it twice a week
