Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
I have read your query and understood your concern.
Dandruff is usually a problem.of oily skin.
it is associated with frequent relapse and recurrence.

For dandruff, I usually advice my patients to apply shampoo containing ketoconazole 2 percent on alternate day basis till it is completely resolved. Apply the foam on affected chest area also and leave the foam on scalp and chest for around five minutes before you wash it.
Once it is cured, maintenance therapy is required so as to prevent its recurrence.

Alongwith in case of severe dandruff, I usually advice my patients to apply noskurf lotion on the affected scalp on alternate day basis.

I hope it helps.
If you have any further query you may ask me.
Stay healthy.
