In brief: DHS zinc shampoo

You may be dealing with a skin condition a bit more severe than simple dandruff.
DHS Zinc shampoo is an over the counter shampoo that helps many people with conditions that cause severe itching, such as psoriasis.

If that doesn't help, may need to get Rx from doctor like Nizoral to help out. Don't use both at the same time Zn + Nizoral. OTC is available.!

In brief: May not be dandruff

If it is getting worse with the dandruff shampoo it most likely isnt dandruff.
You should get it checked out by a dermatologist
