Management of dandruff

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to use a ketoconazole shampoo twice weekly and apply a lotion containing combination of beclomethasone and clotrimazole on the affected areas of the scalp twice daily.
If there is associated itching take antihistaminic like tablet levocetrizine 5 mg once daily at bedtime.
Once your dandruff improves you can stop with the lotion but continue using shampoo for a long time as otherwise the dandruff will recur.
For hair loss I would recommend you to take hair supplements like tablet keraglo men or tablet follihair once daily for 3-4 months.
