Neither is specifically anti fungal which can be needed.

Get nizoral, over the counter..there is also prescription

Use this for 2 weeks minimum

Periodically, use jojoba shampoo
At 2 weeks switch entirely to jojoba
This will help normalize sebum in the scalp.

Even doing jojoba oil massages of the scalp as well.
