Hi there!

Dandruff could worsen acne making primary treatments ineffective. If shampoos containing ZPTO/ ketoconazole have been ineffective I would suggest consulting a dermatologist for alternative medications/ therapies. For the acne you could try benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin and if this seems ineffective it is advised to have this evaluated by a dermatologist as well.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
