Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I'm a teenager and I've been losing a lot of hair for the past year or so. Every time I shampoo, my scalp gets covered in dandruff within a couple of days, and it's super oily too. What could be causing this, and what should I do about it?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Dandruff can often be managed with shampoos containing active ingredients like ketoconazole or selenium sulfide. If it's severe, we might consider a steroid shampoo or solution. However, hair loss could have diverse underlying causes. It's essential to understand your medical history and possibly conduct some blood tests to pinpoint the exact reason for your symptoms.
