Dear Golu
Follow the regimen on regular basis. It may take some time to heal.
1. Take Coconut oil and apply on the affected areas. Leave it over night and next morning boil a handful Margosa ( Neem ) leaves and wash your head with that water. You may also apply lemon juice 2 to 3 times in a week. repeat the process at least for 2 to 3 months. Once your dandruff goes away, you may apply Castor oil also.
Also do some exercise and yoga.

Dear Roggars
Try just one dose of Psorinum 10 M. This is a Homeopathy medicine. You need to wait for 1 week. Let us know the change after 1 week.

I have been suffering with tinea capitis over 20 years. I have tried your remedies. I have some success with lemon grass to help it shed but it comes back. I took a powerful oral pill Lamisil for 12 weeks it helps it shed but did not get rid of it. My doctor does not want to prescribe it again as its hard on the liver. Has anyone had any success in treating it internally? If so please let me know regimen.
