See a derm: Dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis can be treated with topical steroids as well as medicated shampoos. See your dermatologist for a proper protocol to address your concerns.

I agree. Many patients also find relief from using anti-dandruff shampoo. If that doesn't work, your dermatologist can prescribe stronger treatments.
