Persistent Dandruff Problem Tried Many Solutions But None Works

Patient

Q: I am Avinash from Pune, India. I am having dandruff problem since last 8 years. I took medication multiple times but no use it only gives temporary relief say for 15-20 days. I tried all kinds of shampoo ranging from Selsun to Head & Shoulder but no relief. Dandruff falls like white particles whenever I comb my hair. Also whenever whether changes my dandruff either increases in full or doesn't appear at all. Among all methods Head and Shoulder gives some relief but temporary. Lemon juice massage also clears problem for 3-4 days but again same happens. Please suggest some shampoo or method to get rid of this problem !
