Doctor: Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.As per details, it seems that you are suffering from a condition called Androgeneti c alopecia. It is due to male hormones like testosterone.It leads to thinning of hair and subsequent fall usually involving frontal, temporal area.In such cases, I prefer to advise topical minoxidil and oral finasteride.For dandruff, ketoconazole shampoo is advised to be used twice a week.Visit your Doctor and share my opinion with him.I hope it helps. Take care.
