Yeast treatment. Pityriasis versicolor is caused by a yeast. Miconazole, ketoconazole and Clotrimazole can help get rid of the yeast. Discoloration may last months. Control the fungus. But try a soap/wash with 2% pyrithione zinc for 10 minutes daily before rinsing, then apply Lamisil (terbinafine) at spray or Miconazole to affected areas. Use oil free sunscreen. If better go into a maintenance plan. Or move to a cool climate. Read more...
Uncommon on face. Pv is uncommon on the face due to oil in skin but can happen - are you sure of diagnosis? If so, would use topical anti-fungal cream 2 x per day and apply selsun blue at bed and let dry overnight and wash off in am. If severe and doesn't respond to topicals then your family doc can prescribe oral antifungal - usually 1 pills a few days apart followed by exercise to sweat it "onto" skin works well. Read more...

I used to a have an oily dandruff hair so I'm using an anti-dandruff shampoo, but my hair now is so dry and it looks oily, what should I do?

See doctor. Sometimes an anti-fungal lotion may help. I presume that you may have seborrhea as well. Another approach would be to reduce the use of this shampoo to just 2x a week and see if this helps. Read more...

My scalp is dry and itchy I've always had dandruff and get my hair bleached. What can be done? Anti dandruff shampoo helps but still itchy

Details matter. You neglected to identify WHICH dandruff shampoo was tried. There are several different kinds. You also need to learn how to get the best results by having the shampoo contact the scalp long enough before rinsing. Hydrocortisone in a liquid can be applied. Prescription strength usually stops the itch and the flaking. No antihistamine will help this kind of itch. Read more...
