Dandruff is a common problem that is a condition of the scalp. As dead skin is shed, some people shed more than others and the result is annoying white flakes. Dandruff usually affects those with oily skin more than dry skin and is worse in the winter. Though there is no real cure, the effects can be minimized by looking at vitamin deficiencies, diet and stress. May be associated with a type of dermatitis that is the result of an overgrowth of yeast.
Symptoms May Include:
- Dry, itchy scalp
- White flakes on scalp and in hair
- Itchiness & flakes worsen in the winter months / cold weather
