Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi! Naveen,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

The best combination shampoo would be of 2% ketoconazole & ZPTO .This should be done twice a week only .Along with this one can use any steroid lotion topically at night.
If dandruff is very sever then one can take retinoids orally ,but then you need a dermatologists prescription and proper guidance for that.
