Complex Dandruff . Anybody ! Please Help !!!

Anybody. Please Help !!!

I am of South Asian descent, age 28, male, living in USA, 165 Pounds, 5ft 11 inches.

I had this condition since i was about 18 years old. Originally, i used to get some dandruff and oily scalp. Over the years, I kept the dandruff under control by using apple cider vinegar, but this was not a cure but a maintenance program. I used to shampoo my hair every third day and use the apple cider vinegar. But i stopped that program about 8 months ago because apple cider vinegar leaves a very pungent smell and also i was going to india and i wanted to try some homeopathic remedy. I got the homeopathic remedy and it worked for about 2-3 weeks. Most of the dandruff stopped. But after 3-4 weeks, dandruff came back but not all of the dandruff. So the homeopathic remedy helped but it only decreased the dandruff about 50%. I kept using the remedy for about 5-6 months and it stabilized the dandruff about 50%. Also i did some coconut oil massages once a week. But then i stopped using it because it was not decreasing it further. 2 months after stopping the remedy, dandruff came back 100% along with scales on the scalp. So now the dandruff was worse than it's ever been in my life because of the scales and the increased amount of the dandruff. I had some scales stuck to my scalp. And when i scratch, they come loose. They are generally white in colour, at times off-white. They are stuck in only certain spots on my scalp. My Scalp gets itchy and the temptation of itching is too much. Once I itch it is often better but it doesnt solve the problem. The itching is in some parts of my head.

2 days after shampooing, my scalp becomes oily and so also my hair. My scalp doesn't sweat much. but when it is hot, the itchiness increases. I shampoo every 4 days. When they are oily, the hair fall out much easier and also the scalp gets even more itchy. Also when the hair are oily, they tend to bunch together and cover the scalp even less.

The oiliness of the scalp increases at night. When I wake up the hair and scalp are also more oily. I do not use any kind of gels, hair sprays, mousses, conditioners,etc. My hair are becoming thin. whenever i touch my head a hair or two fall. Whenever I run my hands through my hair a few easily fall out. when i take a shower and shampooing, also loose some hair. when i towel dry again some hair fall out. After shampooing and washing my hair, the itching is temporarily relieved and after I have dried my hair they dont fall off that easily.

For the past 1.5 weeks, I have been taking phytolacca berry 30c for treatment. Dose = 2 drops. Once morning and once evening. It has eliminated the scales completely but not dandruff completely. A lof of dandruff is still there. and it still itches a little bit. I don't think phytolacca will completely take away dandruff. so another remedy is needed.

Also if i rub my skin against a black cloth like a black t-shirt, i see like some dry stuff on the cloth.

My father has psiorasis. He also has scalp psiorasis. My brother has no scalp conditions. He has a normal scalp condition and normal hair. So looks like i have inherited the scalp conditions from my father.

My height is 5 feet 11 inches.

I do not consume any alcohol.
I do not smoke
I do not eat any meat except for chicken. I eat 2 eggs 5 days a week. and i eat chicken once a day 3 times a week.

However I eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I usually sleep early at night and my job is not stressful.

Please let me know names, dosage and frequency of the medicines I should take.

I apologize for all the details, but I felt that all these details were necessary to explain my condition. I look forward to getting a response here.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
try Nat.Mur 6x 4 tablets thrice a day, for two weeks and report progress.

What about phytolacca berry. Should i discontinue that or take it along side with nat mur ?

I just noticed another posting where that person has similar conditions as mine. And dr.deoshlok sharma prescribed nat mur 200C for him. Would you mind explaining why you are recommending such a low potency than dr.deoshlok sharma ?

Thank you sir.

Better stop it.You already took it for 10 days continuously.

Two medicines at a time will not allow us to know, which medicine is really benefitting.

I believe in starting low and go high gradually.

We can repeat low potencies safely,and see the susceptibility to the medicine.

If you are susceptible, you will react to the medicine, on low potencies repeated frequently.

Once, your susceptibility is established, we can go higher, with reduced frequency.

hi murthy,
i think the original poster is refering to my post. i wanted to get your opinion on dr. sharma's recommendation that I should take 4 tablets(early morning) of nat mur 200 everyday for a week. I am not currently on any homeopathic drugs and I havent taken them in the past for this problem. I just wanted to know whether there could be any side effects to taking 4 tablets together daily of high potency (nat mur 200c)? Thanks

oh and in case you wanted to refer to my post and my symptoms its in this thread:

I hope it is okay to make a suggestion in addition to your homeopathy treatment.
If you can get Jojoba oil and Rosemary essential oil
Mix 3 tablespoons of Jojoba Oil
5 drops of Rosemary Oil
Massage into scalp and leave in for 10 minutes.
You may then rinse and shampoo as you normally do. Do this in addition to the homeopathy medicine you will be taking.
Jojoba Oil has helped greatly with my children's dandruff and scales problem as well. This combination of oils will also help your hair thinning problem and produce healthy hair follicles.
Hope it's okay I suggested this. Not sure what the protocall here is. Thanks and best of luck to you.
