You could try anti-dandruff shampoo. If it is not helping, then you need to see a doctor. Some people may have diabetes or psoriasis or other skin conditions.

Dandruff, in and of itself is not a bad thing, lots people have it. However, it is unsightly and can lead to itching along with the scale and flaking. Treatment can reduce all these symptoms. For most people the problem isn't something that can be cured, but it can be controlled. Not sure if that answers your question.

Your best methods at home are: -Wash your hair daily. Most people who wash their hair everyday have a LOT less dandruff than people who wash less often -Use over the counter anti-dandruff shampoos. Pick up two different types, put both in the shower, and from day to day switch between them.
