Dandruff since childhood,hair fall and thinning,bald patches

Hi I have dandruff problem from my early childhood . I have tried all types of medication and home cure methods, but none of them seem to work. I also went to a dermatologist and he prescribed me a shampoo Candid TV and a lotion Diprovate . As long as I use them the effects can be seen but even if I miss it for a day the dandruff is back again. As a result of this my hair has become thin and the hair line is gradually receding. Some small bald patches have also started to appear. Please provide me a solution.

You have not mentioned your age. It is not infection but endocronological problem. You have to avoid fatty foods and take adequate fluids. Massage your scalp with non oil based solutions. Alternately put two spoons of yogurt in two spoons of sarsoon oil and massage your scalp with this solution and comb your hair. Keep it for two to three hours and take bath. Only wash your head with water and comb your hair so that all the existing dandruf is removed. Try it every alternate day and see the result but maintain the diet as advised. (excerpt from alternative medicine).
You can also give a trial with Head and Shoulders shampo.
