Suggest Treatment For White Scaly Dandruff On The Scalp
I have white scaly dandruff on my scalp (in clusters), some scaling behing my ears and on my forehead and 2-4 0.5mm diameter scales on my body. It seem liek I have psoriasis and my doctor has asked me to use a zinc pyridine shampoo and apply Tacrolimus 0.1%solution 0.1%. I am not sure if it is helping me, especially the patches on my face.
Is there anything else that I can do to help alleviate the white patches, especially on my face? Like home remedies, any specific soap, diet etc?
I am also on acne treatment currently- isotretinoin 10%, finasteride, vovisun.
Thanks and regards,

hello. thank you for writing to us
I am dr.kakkar(dermatologist). I have gone through your query and i have noted your concern.
You may use a coal tar and salicylic acid based shampoo e.g protar lotion.
Use a steroid+salicylic acid based solution e.g topisal -3% solution on scalp for overnight application.
Use a mometasone furoate cream e.g momate or elocon cream for forehead patches.
