1. You have dandruff  .. this is a tendency. So once you get results from treatment you will need to maintain your scalp.. the moment you stop the dandruff tends to recur 2. Taking medicines will be needed... to help control the hair fall... but ONLY TREATMENT DOESN'T WORK  at times as you rightly said. You will need to help the dermatologist by modifying lifestyle . Sleep on time wake up early and exercise 45 min everyday and eat a HEALTHY AND BALANCED DIET. So start modifying lifestyle and visit your dermatologist . Hair fall treatment doesn't show results till 3 to 6 months be patient. Read this before you choose your dermatologist  And also read this article
