Answer
You have two separate scalp problems that are not related. The dandruff and scale is called seborrhea can dermatitis and is treated by otc shampoos like T-gel or T-sal or prescription shampoos like Nizoral. The itchy scalp is treated with cortisone like prescription Clobex spray or other prescription topical medication.
If you have male pattern hair loss the treatment you are using, is correct-minoxidil and  Propecia.
