Dandruff treatment: Dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis) is a chronic skin condition that can be treated but not cured. It tends to flare with season changes and when a person is experiencing stress. Over the counter dandruff shampoos are a good place to start treating dandruff and most of the time do a good job helping. Severe dandruff needs to be seen by a doctor for some prescriptions and for possible tests.

Dandruff: Anti dandruff shampoos such as t sal are helpful. A dermatologist can prescribe topical medications and shampoos if the otc shampoos do not work. Olive oil also helps with severe dandruff.
