Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

I am using selsun blue dandruff shampoo & I notice I have more hair loss & more oily hair. But the dandruff are controlled, should I stop using it?

I am using selsun blue dandruff shampoo & I notice I have more hair loss & more oily hair. But the dandruff are controlled, should I stop using it?

Dandruff blues: Dear KMcClure,
Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, allergies, fungal infection, or irritated skin. I would recommend to alternate shampoos between an anti-dandruff shampoo and non anti-dandruff shampoo. If your dandruff is already controlled using selsun blue 2-3x a week should work. For natural anti-dandruff products look for a shampoo with tea tree oil or even an essential oil of it. ...Read more

My scalp is dry and itchy I've always had dandruff and get my hair bleached. What can be done? Anti dandruff shampoo helps but still itchy

Details matter: You neglected to identify WHICH dandruff shampoo was tried. There are several different kinds. You also need to learn how to get the best results by having the shampoo contact the scalp long enough before rinsing. Hydrocortisone in a liquid can be applied. Prescription strength usually stops the itch and the flaking. No antihistamine will help this kind of itch. ...Read more

Lost my eyebrow hair, the only diagnoses I've had is dermatitis& I've been treating it with dandruff shampoo&latisse for 9 weeks now no results?

Scalp is very smelly, I must wash hair everyday. Used dandruff shampoo and ketoconozale. Doctor has not diagnosed, says keep using shampoo. What is it?

Psoriasis: Psoriasis is one possibility. Treatment of the scalp is difficult because of the particularly thick skin, and often involves topical steroid lotion or a vitamin d preparation like dovonex. Really bad cases may need a biopsy and oral immunosuppressants initially to get the problem under control. See your doctor again or get a referral to a dermatologist if the symptoms are not under control. ...Read more

I have dandruff on my scalp. I tried head and shoulders anti dandruff shampoo. But did not help me. I'm having acne too cuz of it. What should I do?

Dandruff from heck!: Dandruff is a few flakes. When it becomes an issue, we call it seborrheic dermatitis. This condition comes from reacting to the normal oils we make on our skin. You can try t-gel, and use it daily. If not, see your friendly neighborhood dermatologist. We use more potent topicals, and some oral medicines as well. We can fix your acne too! ...Read more

I have dandruff real bad I've tried all kind of dandruff shampoo and nothing works. Any suggestions?

Other options: I agree with dr. Hernandez. Keep the shampoo on scalp for at least 5 minutes 3 x a week. Other options are otc salicylic acid shampoo same way alternating days with nizoral (ketoconazole). Also, scalpicin can be used for itching 1-2 x daily. This is a condition that can be controlled, not cured. See a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis as other conditions such as psoriasis may appear similar. ...Read more
