Particularly stubborn dandruff can be due to seborrheic dermatitis or even psoriasis. Washing daily with a dandruff shampoo containing coal tar (Neutrogena and generic brands) or zinc pyrithione will help meanwhile. Your primary care physician ora dermatologist can help you with the visual diagnosis.
