Hi ,thanks for posting your query

Dandruff as such is not a serious problem. It is reposonse of the skin to a fungus in t bid to remove it off from the scalp( in the form of scales or flakes ).There may be associated itcning and hair fall which comes down when dandruff is controlled.

You may apply noskurf lotion alternate night for eight hour and wash scalp with tar based shampoo next day
It may take two to three months , then you may maintain with weekly ciclopirox shampoo

Avoid scratching because it may lead to secandory bacterial infection

At times psoriasis of the scalp presents like this , so you may get it examined by a dermatologist to confirm the condition

Hope this solves your query
