What is Dandruff?

Dandruff is a flaking of the skin that may make your scalp feel itchy. The white or yellow flakes can be annoying. Seborrheic dermatitis (SD) is a common skin condition that mainly affects the scalp, and may cause stubborn dandruff. Dandruff and SD affect about 50% of the population, most commonly men. For some people, the problem can be lifelong.

Treatment for dandruff focuses on clearing signs of the disease, improving symptoms, and maintaining remission with long-term therapy. Alpha Providers may prescribe over-the-counter treatment, prescription medications, or a combination of both.
