Depends: Dandruff is flaking of the scalp. It can be simple shedding of skin. Can be due to sun burn. Can be due to infection, inflammation or other acute causes. Mostly, however, it is due to seborrheic dermatitis. This is an inflammation of the skin often due to a low grade fungal infection or a reaction to oils in the scalp. Best treated with tar shampoos or antifungal shampoos. Maybe topicals.See 1 more doctor answer
Yeast: Dandruff is seborrhiec dermatitis in the scalp. This is due to an overgrowth of yeast named pityrosporum ovale. Some make sebum (oils) especially preferential for them to grow. If your immune system reacts to it, your skin becomes inflamed red and flaky, thus the dandruff. Start by using head and shoulder, nizoral, (ketoconazole) neutrogena tgel or tsal shampoo, lather and leave in for 5-10min before rinsing.See 2 more doctor answers

Seborrhea: What you have is a condition known as seborrheic dermatitis a common, harmless, scaling rash affecting the face, scalp and other areas. It occurs most often where the skin is oily.

Several posibilities: A fungus, malassezia lives on scalps of healthy adults without problems, sometimes growing out of control, feeding on oils inyour hair follicles. This can irritate your scalp and cause extra skin cells to grow, die and fall off, clumping with oil from your hair and scalp, making them appear white and flaky in your hair. You may also have eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, seborrheic dermatitis.
I've always had dandruff, but lately it's been getting worse and what used to help no longer is. What could cause it to get worse so quickly?
Seborrheic dermatiti: Is a common skin condition that causes scaly patches, red skin and stubborn dandruff. Flare ups can occur for not apparent reason, resulting in worsening of dandruff. Seborrheic dermatitis doesn't affect your overall health, but can be uncomfortable and cause embarrassment. It isn't contagious, and it's not a sign of poor personal hygiene. Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo is usually very helpful.
