Default Malassezia Dermatitis?

Any advice for managing Malassezia Dermatitis? My friend has been struggling with skin issues with her Westie and it looks more like a yeast condition (she is going to get a second vets opinion current vet had him on steroids which apparently aggravates this condition). It looks prevalent in breeds like the Westie and also the GSD was mentioned. Most articles recommend oral Ketoconazole and shampoo like Selsun Blue. He's also on a fish diet and gets Epi-soothe shampoo baths nearly every day.

Just wanted to see if anyone had any success treating thanks in advance!
