I never had dandruff until I was 18 years old and got an attack of measles. Now I am 54 and I still suffer from this condition. It has also made my hair a little sparse. My wife thinks I will soon get bald. Sometimes I want to shave off all my hair for a few months and apply oil. Will this prevent my hair fall and prevent me getting bald, anyone has any suggestions for my problem. I have tried number of things only to get temparory relief from the condition.Thanks for help
