Dear Naina,
This is a very common problem of having a combination of dandruff and hair fall. Both of them are interrelated sometimes.
Avoid scratching your scalp. Use a good antifungal shampoos.. Ketoconazole or 8X shampoo or similar atleast twice a week. For hair fall currently start biotin , zinc tablet or food suppliments.
If the problem persists after 2 weeks then it would be wise to consult a dermatologist

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
To get relief from dandruff, you can use an antifungal lotion regularly twice a week on your scalp.For hair loss, take iron supplements and a high protein diet. Also apply raw egg on your hairs twice a week one hour before washing your hairs.
