Severe case of dandruff

DANDRUFF

Dandruff (aka seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp) is a common chronic scalp condition that occurs as a result of a dry scalp, or condition called seborrheic dermatitis or, very commonly, an overgrowth of a fungus called malassezia.

Dandruff isn't contagious or serious. But it can be embarrassing and sometimes difficult to treat.


The common findings of dandruff are:

  1. The scalp shows white flakes of dead skin 
  2. Itchy, scaly scalp
  3. More severe forms present with patchy, orange to salmon-colored plaques covered with yellowish, greasy scales.


Out Treatment: The good news is that more-stubborn cases of dandruff often respond to medicated shampoos. We prescribe antifungal shampoos, in combination with a  topical corticosteroid for severe cases
