In brief: Nizoral, (ketoconazole) t sal tgel

For mild cases teal tgel or Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo can work.
For more resistant cases prescriptions such as clobex, taclonex, or dermasmoothe fs. Forvsever cases cortisone shots into sever areas or even short course of antifungal pills can be useful. This will recur but can be controlled.

In brief: Dandruff

Dandruff is a common scalp condition in which small pieces of dry skin flake off of the scalp.
If you have dark hair or you’re wearing dark colors, you may notice the flakes in your hair or on your shoulders. Dandruff may also make your scalp itch. https://www.aad.org/public/skin-hair-nails/hair-care/how-to-treat-dandruff
