Que: I have been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and have been suffering from the same since August 2014. My scalp has become a constant problem for me, and my hair is falling out in large numbers, every day. Because I had itching, my doctor prescribed Ketonazole shampoo, which I used once in 15 days, but the hair loss just refuses to slow down. When my hair falls out, there is a white knob at the top, and their texture is almost spider web like. What can I do to take my hair back to good health?
Ans: Seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff might not be the cause of your hair fall, and it might be a good idea to meet a physician to determine the exact cause. Only after determining the precise reason for your hair loss, will you be able to start on a treatment plan. You might be asked to use stronger medications or even be suggested the application of steroid solutions. There is also the possibility that you might be asked to wash your hair more often and start a therapy for hair loss.
