If your scalp is very itchy, try a non-prescription cortisone cream or lotion. Part your hair and rub the cream or lotion on your scalp, not your hair. Follow directions carefully. Overusing cortisone products can make dryness and inflammation worse, or cause other side effects. Let your dermatologist know that you're using cortisone cream.

If these steps don't do the trick, see your dermatologist for help getting your dandruff under control.
