Dear Docs, I have a severe dandruff. My hair is always full white flakes and it itches terribly which when scratched leads to sore. I need your help ?

In brief: Well

First of all the scalp needs to re moisture itself.
So wash hair every 3 days. Try t gel shampoo. Usually good results

In brief: Is it dandruff?

I see you are on ketoconazole.
For dandruff, some folks alternate ketoconazole shampoo, ordinary dandruff shampoos some with selenium, and judicious topical steroid if extreme. I wonder whether you actually have psoriasis of the scalp.
