Brief Answer:
Sebowash

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up.
Probably uncontrolled dandruff is the main problem.
I treat such cases with a mild topical steroid shampoo like sebowash.
Use this shampoo daily for 10 days.
Don't use any other products on your scalp during this period.
After 10 days you can use minoxidil and follihair.
Hope this helps you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
