You can use some anti-dandruff shampoo like Neutrogena T/Sal to help with the dandruff

There can be various causes of dandruff like seborrhea and fungal infection

Some time an anti-fungal applied topically can help as well

If the cause of your dry skin is eczema then you need to have specific treatment for that

It can be in the form of emollient and topical steroids to immune modulator drugs

This will require an examination by the skin specialist to confirm the diagnosis first and then treat accordingly
