What is the treatment for seborrheic dandruff ?

Dear doctor, I am 22 male. I am affected by dandruff for the last 3 years. I consult the dermatologist he said this is seborrheic. I used many more allopathic medicine and i had tried to ayurvedic medicine also. In allopathy i had used No skurf lotion and fungicide , sebo wash and lots of shampoo. When i switched to new medicine my seborrheic problems are come under control for few weeks but when my hair grow longer then it will come and itching and white scalps coming down and my hair is also falling down. Please suggest me a good medicine for this and is it possible to cure the seborrheic and its possible to grow my hair back. Please advice.

Hi. I am 29 years old. and a personal trainer at gym. Due to my fitness regime, I consume mostly boiled food, devoid or with very less oil and spices. Also consume six litres of water a day and my body fat percentage is around 8%. I had acne problem during my adolescnece but that had disappeared completely. In 2011, I started using minoxidil 5% solution and finpecia tablet for hair regain. I am not sure if that has anything to do with it, but my acne problem returned from 2013. I have acnes mostly on my forhead. Redness and pus formation are recurring. I have visited a doc and she had prescribed me sebium facewash and an oral antibiotic. The problem has not stopped even after the prescribed tim line. I get up worrying about a new acne formation and my fear comes true every morning. I have stopped consuming eggs as I thought it might have something to do with acne. I also have dandruff. Plz help.

I have had a small red patch on my neck for around 4 weeks now but in the last week it has started to spread, the colour is less prominent but the area is growing quite large. I also have seb derm on my face especially the brow region and wondered whether it could be related to this. I am currently at university and the earliest doctors appointment is a date when I have returned home for the summer, are there any over the counter items I could buy to help with this? All the best, Sean Walsh.

For years, I've had chronic thick white ear flaking in my left outer ear (much less in my right). I clean it and within 24 hrs or less, more flakes have returned. Have tried an anti-dandruff shampoo in my ears -- This doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
