Hi ashish...hair fall may be secondary to dandruff...Several ingredients were found to be safe and effective for self-treatment of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. Salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione and coal tar are effective in treating both conditions while sulfur and ketoconzole are effective in treating dandruff only and hydrocortisone is effective for seborrheic dermatitis..consult nearest dermatologist they will do the needful.
Hello, I went through your query. It could be seboric dermatitis, nothing but dandruff. All you need to do is using medicated shampoo. 2% ketoconozole shampoo are available over the counter in medical stores. Apply to wet hair so the foam comes , leave it for 5-10min then take bath. Do it two times a week for four weeks. Then after once a week to prevent further dandruff.
