I am having problem of acute flaky dandruff and also itching in my hair. I have tried Topisal, Nizral and various other shampoos as well. However, there is no respite from dandruff. Please suggest me some good mediation as well as shampoo and oil. Currently I am under sugar and BP medication. My height is 5'6' and my weight is 80 kg.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have gone through your complaints.
You should start with shampoo containing Salicylic acid and Ketoconazole. Use it every alternate day in the beginning. Once you notice improvement gradually taper it to twice weekly and then once weekly. Along with this apply, Clotrimazole and Betamethasone combination lotion on the affected areas of the scalp twice daily.
I also recommend you to take tablet Ketoconazole 200 mg once daily in the morning and tablet Levocetirizine 5 mg at bedtime. Continue this treatment for two weeks and revert back.
1. Immune factors
2. Hormonal factors
3. Fungal infection
Avoid oiling of scalp as it will increase your dandruff.
Thanks for the advice. Please suggest a good brand name for the shampoo. Are Clotrimazole and Betamethasone lotion a separate one?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
You can try Salisia KT shampoo which is a combination of Salicylic acid and Ketoconazole. Clotrimazole betamethasone lotion comes as single medicine in the name of Candid B lotion.
