Hairfall is common due to dandruff. Dandruff is related to oily scalp. So you must wash your scalp more frequently. You could use a ZPTO(Zinc pyrithione) containing shampoo available in all stores (like clinic plus, head and shoulders or clear shampoo). These shampoos can dry the hair so use it only to wash your scalp. Leave it on your scalp for 2 to 5 minutes and rinse off. After rinsing use a regular shampoo or conditioning shampoo for your hair. Do this weekly thrice till your dandruff reduces. There are medicated anti dandruff shampoos as well but they must be prescribed. If your dandruff does not reduce in two weeks then visit a dermatologist near you for a prescription product. You can take some biotin containing supplements for hairloss. Hairloss due to dandruff will reduce in 1 to 2 months, once your dandruff comes under control. If you continue to get rashes or pimples even after your dandruff is under control you will need to use some anti acne medicines. You can use a oil removing facewash or benzoyl peroxide facewash for now. Wash your face 2 to 3 times daily not more than that. Pimples usually tend to recurr and you will eventually need to visit a dermatologist. Allergies on the skin are not related to dandruff. It is due to external factors like dust, pollution, pollen from plants, fragrance in soaps and perfumes, new clothes, insects and so many other causes. If your rashes subside with anti dandruff treatment then it is not likely to be an allergy. Please attach photos when asking a question as it helps us make a proper diagnosis. Rashes and allergy are very general terms associated with many diseases. Hope this has helped you. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
