Dandruff is a common chronic scalp condition marked by flakes of dead skin which appears in the scalp, hair or in the shoulders.
Causes of Dandruff
Dandruff is caused by a fungus and not caused by poor hygiene or lack of washing the hair but by an abundance of oil that becomes infected with a yeast called malassezia.
Skin problems like acne, eczema, and psoriasis can cause a buildup of dead skin cells on the scalp. Dandruff doesn’t directly cause hair loss, but scratching your scalp a lot could cause temporary hair loss.
Symptoms of Dandruff
The symptoms of dandruff include white flakes of dead skin in the hair and on the shoulders, as well as an itchy, red scalp and continuous bothersome feeling on the scalp.
Treatment for Dandruff
Dandruff can be controlled with proper treatment. The treatment method varies depending upon the condition of scalp such as dry or greasy scalp, skin conditions etc
If not treated properly on right time dandruff can show up in other parts of the body such as scalp, forehead, eyebrows, eyelashes or ears.
