Hairfall and dandruff

I experience hairfall due to dandruff/white patches and its more severe behind my head, I used many shampoos like ketoconazole, zpto without much result, I suspect this could be some skin issue as I see similar white patches on my eye brows[eye brows are falling due to this] and inside the ears as well makes it very dry. Please help me on this.

Thanks for the query. Severe dandruff could indicate dandruff itself which is significant or can indicate beginning of some other skin condition like Seborrheic dermatitis or Scalp psoriasis. Based on your description of pain on the scalp it looks like seborrheic dermatitis.It can be more problematic if you are using hair oils. So consider discontinuation of oils and using an antifungal shampoo everyday for first week and then reduce the application to twice a week for maintenance. You should keep the shampoo at-least for 5 minutes on the scalp for it to act. This should solve your problem. However if problem persists, consult a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment and to rule out any other skin condition. Hope it helps you.
