Hi,
To treat seborrheic dermatitis of scalp, use a ketoconazole based shampoo every alternate days. Also use a steroid and clotrimazole based lotion over the scalp for faster resolution of the lesions. If the lesions are too itchy, you may also take antiallergic like cetirizine. Do not oil your hair as it aggravates seborrheic dermatitis.
Hope that answers your query. Take care.
