Controlling dandruff: Dandruff (seborrhea) is common. Shampoos with zinc, salicylic acid, selenium or coal tar are sold in many stores. Nizoral shampoo (contains anti-fungal) is also available. Doctors may also recommend cortisone or Kenalog (triamcinolone) sprays. Prevent dryness (don't wash hair too often). A primary doctor or dermatologist can look for psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections if unusual or worrisome.

You can certainly: try OTC dandruff shampoos, but if they aren't working, consider seeing dermatologist for prescription strength products
