Hi drs. My father had dandruff and hairfall for about 5 yrs. He used some cosmetics and medications but all failed. Is there any solution?
Dandruff Solution: Unfortunately, "herbal shampoo" doesn't really qualify as medication. Your father should seek an appointment with a dermatologist to control the dandruff (there are many possible causes), then seek advice from an abhrs-certified hair restoration physician to address the hair loss. Ask for sequential cross sectional bundle trichometry measurements to track the resolution of the hair loss. ...Read more

My scalp is very itchy. I have used every dandruff shampoo at the drug store and it makes it worse. I do have very mild psoriasis on my knee and foot. Could they be related?
Lice! In my area it is an epidemic among grade school aged children. If you're around any children, it might be worth combing through your hair with a lice comb to see if any of the little buggers are there. If so treat for lice and you're cured!

DANDRUFF: Nothing stops dandruff like a blue serge suit! Dandruff is a flaky, scaling, often itchy condition of the scalp. What to do, besides seeing a dermatologist? Shampoo daily (if you can) with either a tar shampoo (t-gel or tarsum, for example), or with Nizoral (ketoconazole) or selsun shampoo. These are over-the-counter. If it doesn't improve, see a dermatologist. Best luck! ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Options: Genetics, hormones, excess oils on skin (including scalp), infrequent washing / too frequent washing, skin condition from "products" used in hair--for a start. If washing hair at least every other day, can try an anti-dandruff shampoo for now--if effective, may spontaneously resolve over time. If not, may benefit from seeing dermatologist to identify source. ...Read more
Dandruff is associated with malassezia fungus infection.
Buy over-the-counter dandruff shampoos, and look for one that contains zinc pyrithione, which can reduce the fungus; selenium sulfide, which can limit cell turnover and decrease the amount of fungus; salicylic acid, which works as a sort of scrub to slough off dead skin; or ketoconazole, which works against a broad array of fungi. ...Read more
