As summer turns to Fall and heads into Winter, many of us experience those "scalp itchies". Often times it is accompanied by those annoying flakes (aka dry scalp), In many cases this is a condition know as Seborrhea (aka dandruff). Dandruff is the shedding of dead skin cells from the scalp. As skin cells die, a small amount of flaking is normal. Some people, however, experience an unusually large amount of flaking either chronically or as a result of certain triggers, which can also be accompanied by redness and irritation.
Dandruff is a common scalp disorder affecting almost half of the population at the post-pubertal age and of any sex and ethnicity. It often causes itching. It has been well established that keratinocytes play a key role in the expression and generation of immunological reactions during dandruff formation. The severity of dandruff may fluctuate with season as it often worsens in winter. Dandruff is rare before puberty, peaks in the teens and early twenties, and declines with age thereafter Most cases of dandruff can be easily treated with specialized shampoos. There is, however, no true cure.
