Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have seborrheic dermatitis probably. Use the following medications. Kindly consult your doctor to discuss the suggestion and take the treatment with consent.

1. Zydip-C lotion (Clotrimazole, Beclomethasone) apply once at night on the scalp.

2. Protar K shampoo (Ketoconazole, Coal tar) three days per week.

3 Tablet Desloratadine 5 mg once at night.

Do this for 20 days and avoid hair oil.
