Suggest Treatment For Dandruff And Pimples

Hi doctor, I am 35 yrs old and my wife is 30 yr old. Both of us are suffering from an unknown scalp desease since last 4 yrs and done a lot of tratements

but in vain. We get small and live "funsi" on entire scalp which dries up in 15 days and leave a small dandruff like stuff behind each of them. Each

infected place in scalp dries up and I can scrach out the dried skin. The dandruff like thing when stuck over face or back converts to a pimple. The

entire cycle repeats almost every month.



We started the treatment with some vitamin tables as prescribed by a doctor, we stopped when there was no improvements after 2 months.

Now a days we are taking "griesofulvin" tablets 500mg daily since last 2 months but no results. Also to mention,

first it started with my wife and after few months inducted in me. Please suggest. We both are tired of it and always worry it should not induct in our 3

yrs old son. Waiting impatiently for your reply. Regards

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have dandruff problem . Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to may reasons like dry skin , irritated, oily skin , not shampooing often enough , chronic inflammatory skin condition like psoriasis , fungus and sensitivity to hair care products. For pimples on face you should use product containing benzoyl peroxide. Drink 8-9 glasses of water daily and add fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. Apply aloe vera gel and apply azelaic acid containing cream twice a day. I would suggest you to Shampoo often ( Salicylic acid shampoo or Ketoconazole ) , cut back on styling products , hair sprays, styling gels , eat a healthy diet and get a little sun .Consult dermatologist for proper examination and treatment . Doctor may prescribe antifungal medicine . Sometimes stress can also cause such symptoms , so try to reduce stress .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
