In brief: Dandruff shampoo

The over-the-counter shampoos generally work very well, like Head and Shoulders, or Neutrogena.
You can also scrub your scalp in the shower with a soft brush. Just don't get too aggressive with it, you don't want to create more irritation. If you have areas of crusting or oozing, see your doctor for consideration of additional treatment.
