Brief Answer:
Start with ketoconazole shampoo and tablet

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcaremagic
For dandruff I recommend my patients to use a shampoo containing ketoconazole every alternate day to begin with and then tapering it slowly as improvement is noticed. Along with this I prescribe a lotion containing beclomethasone and clotrimazole to be applied twice daily on the affected flaky scalp and tablet ketoconazole 200 mg once daily for 2 weeks. The shampoo has to be used for a long time as dandruff is a chronic disease and will relapse if treatment is stopped early. Besides this avoid oiling of your scalp.
For thinning of hair start with tablet keraglo men once daily along with folifast hair tincture. The tincture can be started after 2 weeks once your dandruff gets controlled. 8-10 drops are applied daily at night on the scalp. This treatment has to be continued for 3-4 months.
I hope to have answered your query.

I have developed mild itch all over my body, scalp and face. I noticed some small dark spots on some places which are very few. Earlier, around 2 months back I suffered from fungal infection near groin and inner thighs for which dermatologist prescribed clotrimazole, ketocanazole and fulcunazole and it was cured.Now mild itch started again this time all over body including groin and scrotum. I am 23 years old male.once in a year or two i suffers from such skin problem due to which my inner thighs and butts have become darker.plz suggest some solution

I just recently had ringworm on my thigh and I treated it with clotrimazole lotion and tea tree oil. I did that for 4 weeks, but now I am getting these light red dry patches on my legs. They don t itch, like the ringworm did, but I am wondering if it s still that, or if it may be something else.

hello I was wondering how coud I remove post hyper pigmentation on the base of my penis , I went to a clinic and was told it was a rash(equivalent to a womens yeast infection I guess) and was told to use A cream of clotrimazole cream 1% and it helped remove the rash but now I got light spots( had em for about 4 months now) and was hoping for something to reduce or remove them?

I m a 32year male, generally healthy. Literally over a night or two, I have developed a red, raised rash on the skin between my butt cheeks. I originally thought it was haemorrhoids and so tried zinc oxide and lidocaine cream, after bathing them in salt water, but felt it started to spread further onto the cheek and up towards my scrotum. I therefore thought it could be fungal nappy rash (due to sweating and hot weather) and so bought clotrimazole 2%, which I have ude for 2 days now, but to little improvement. Any thoughts please? Thank you!
