Thanks for writing in.
In all probability you have dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis. This is commonly due to a fungal infection. The treatment is as follows:
a. Use Arcolane 2% shampoo 2-3 times a week. Apply on the scalp 20 minutes before bathing.
b. Keep your hair clean and do not apply oil
c. Do this for 2-3 weeks. If the problem persists, see a dermatologist. There are plenty of good dermatologists in Hyderabad. You can see Dr Vijay Somani at Somani Skin Care Centre, 3-6 -560, Lane adj to Aalto’s Trade Centre, Himayatnagar, Hyderabad - 500029
Hope that helps
