Hi! Lakshmikanth,

Seborrheic dermatitis is one reason for hair loss,but there are other reasons for hair loss also.It can be genetic or hormonal,or due to thyroid problem .Even zn,iron deficiency can cause hair loss.
One needs a complete work up before deciding on the medicines .Consult a dermatologist (they are also hair specialist) in your town who can help you.

Hi! Lakshmikanth,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Lakshmikanth,being a allopathic doctor I've no idea about the above combination treatment you are on.But I can suggest you that the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis depends upon the severity of disease.There are various lotions and shampoos available for the same But if these are not effective then one has to go for oral medications (like retinoids).Retinoids are given only. after blood investigations and certain precautions under doctors supervision .Consult a dermatologist and discuss about above options.
