Drandruff Tips

Dandruff (Pityriasis capitis) is the excessive flaking of dead skin that forms on the scalp. As it isDandruff normal for skin cells to die and flake off, a small amount of flaking is normal and in fact quite common. Some people, however, either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, experience an unusually large amount of flaking, which can be not only a visual nuisance, but is also often accompanied by redness and irritation. Most cases of dandruff can be treated with specialized shampoos or common household remedies.

Dandruff can also be a symptom of seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, fungal infection or head lice. Excessive scratching should be avoided. Scratching to the point of causing breaks in the skin can increase the risk for infections, particularly from staph and strep bacteria.
