Dandruff

A common and often itchy scalp condition in which small pieces of flaky skin fall off the head.

What is it?

Dandruff is a prevalent skin issue mainly impacting the scalp, leading to white particles of dead skin falling from the scalp and landing on the shoulders. This condition is frequently accompanied by scalp irritation. There are various triggers of dandruff including dry skin, sensitivity to hair care products, insufficient shampooing, and a yeast-like fungus known as malassezia. Dandruff usually affects adults and men more than women. Despite its widespread occurrence, it can cause discomfort and self-consciousness for those suffering from it. However, it's crucial to understand that dandruff is not linked to poor hygiene, but it may become more noticeable if you don't wash your hair frequently.

How is it treated?

One of our board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Partners can play an essential role in controlling and treating dandruff. They will be able to determine the precise cause of your dandruff through a scalp assessment and possibly further tests. Depending on the cause and intensity, we may suggest medicated shampoos, creams, or lotions. For persistent cases, we might recommend prescription-strength shampoos or steroid lotions. Guidance on correct hair care and lifestyle changes can also be given. If you are experiencing signs of dandruff, book an appointment at one of our dermatology clinics located in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton and Strongsville, Ohio.
