Hi, thanks for your query.

Raised ESR can occur due a number of disorders within our body like chronic infective conditions like tuberculosis and infective endocarditis, auto-immune diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, malignancy, or certain physiological conditions like pregnancy.

Now to decrease ESR to normal the underlying cause has to be identified and treated. You may consult a physician for this.

Dandruff more or less persists throughout life. You may use anti dandruff shampoo as advised and and once it has decreased you may use it once in a week or 15 days for maintenance.

For grey hair you may apply melitane 1% gel (available as altris gel by alembic)
and calcium pentothenate tablets orally under dermatological guidance.

Hope this addresses your concern.
