Usualy 1-2 weeks: Dandruff (seborheic dermatitis) will usually clear with selsun blue in 1-2 weeks if the case is mild. Sometimes it is more severe and will require more aggressive treatment. See your doctor or a dermatologist if the selsun blue is not helping after a couple weeks.

How can I prevent my toddler from getting the swine flu?

Which type ?: This label has been associated with both the H1N1 of 2009 and 2013-14 and another strain, H1 N5 (I think) in 2013. The H1N1 was in the vaccine for 2013-14. Vaccination or total exclusion from community contact are the primary preventive measures. Use of Tamiflu (oseltamivir) after exposure may also prevent it.

What causes nicks in my fetal artery dopplers, and how can I prevent them?

Not clear question..: If you are referring to umbilical artery abnormal doppler velocimetry, this is a specialized test for growth restricted fetuses and there is not much you can do about preventing fetal growth restriction. Avoid exercise and follow your perinatologist's instructions to avoid pregnancy complications. Hope this answers your question - if not, please try to specify what you are concerned about.

What diet will prevent the progression of heart disease?

Somewhat: Diet with modification of fat intake, coupled with exercise can help slow heart disease progression. To say it can prevent it is probably stretching things. However, there is no question that regular exercise coupled with good diet habits and a physician's guidance imo can clearly improve one's cardiac disease status. I believe considerable research exists to back up that statement.
