Patient Comments: Dandruff - Prescriptions

Did you see a doctor for your dandruff? What was prescribed, and was it effective?

Comment from: Cruiser, 75 or over Male (Patient) Published: November 07

I have had a seasonal dandruff problem for many years. It usually starts in the late fall and continues through until spring. My doctor gives me a prescription for Ratio-Ectosone Scalp Lotion 0.1% (Betamethasone 17-valerate) and it really does the job.
