Once your dermatologist analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, he or she will perform a physical examination in which it will not be difficult to diagnose dandruff, although if he or she suspects an underlying condition, he or she may request additional tests to identify it.
The treatment to follow will be the use of an anti-dandruff shampoo with a specific medication, since there are multiple types of products with different substances, so your doctor will determine which one is the most suitable for your case, or if deemed necessary, he or she will prescribe two or more shampoos that you will have to combine to solve the cause and control the symptoms.
If you have an allergic reaction to any of the products, tell your doctor right away so they can change the type of shampoo. If the reaction is severe and you have a severe rash, redness, intense burning, or breathing problems, go immediately to the ABC Medical Center Emergency Room because it could be triggering a serious allergic reaction.
