You have LHA in your routine (Effaclar duo plus) which is a BHA – oil soluble and clearing the pores. But you don’t have an AHA, which is water soluble and will break up the “mortar” between the “skin cell bricks” to help the dry skin come off more easily. Basically, exfoliation. Try starting very slowly (once a week then twice then three times) with an AHA toner or serum, don’t use glycolic because it’s got the smallest molecule size and is most irritating. Either try lactic (a little larger) or mandelic (the largest). Lactic is generally easier to find and cheaper. Something like The Ordinary 5% lactic. Also add some more humectants to your routine- your tea tree also has alcohol in it which is both drying and irritating on many people. Try a thin hyaluronic acid toner like Hada Labo Light https://smile.amazon.com/Rohto-Goku-Jun-Hyaluronic-Lotion-Light/dp/B074GX61B2/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1532700445&sr=8-3&keywords=hada+labo+light or any other “moisturizing toner” you’d like before your tea tree gel morning and night. You can give it a few seconds to soak in and apply as many layers as you’d like. I’m in a hot humid climate and still use 3 layers. It has nothing in it that’s going to irritate acne. Just replacing some of the moisture that you’re taking out with other products.

I also have a dry, dehydrated scalp from time to time. Using this has been a lifesaver. I put it in a dropper bottle, run it through my hair in sections, and massage it into my scalp after a shower. Seriously, so good.
Iherb has some free shipping promo right now. This scalp treatment is OOS, but looks promising and along the lines of what you want to try. I haven’t tried it yet, but I use this shampoo and its conditioner and it’s great. Something with BHA in it has been immensely helpful for me, but I don’t really deal with dandruff, just dryness.
You can add a drop or two of tea tree oil (or rosemary oil) into any shampoo application you’re doing if you have a shampoo/conditioner that you otherwise enjoy. Or, if you have access to large amounts of rosemary, boiling it and making a tea to apply is super nice. Especially if it’s from the fridge and it’s hot out.
But yeah, definitely see a dermatologist. A lot of these things are helpful for routine care, but you need to get things under control first.
