Dandruff is a common, non-contagious skin condition that causes shedding of the dead skin from the scalp with high oil (sebum) production. It is also called as Scurf or Pityriasis Simplex Capillitii. It is normal to shed some dead skin flakes as the skin is constantly renewing itself. For people with Dandruff, skin cells may mature and be shed in 2-7 days, as opposed to around a month in people without Dandruff. The new cells formed in the lower layers are gradually pushed to the surface which become flat and overlap each other. By then, these cells are dead and are shed from the surface all the time in clumps, which are big enough to be seen with the naked eye as embarrassing flakes, especially when they land on dark clothing.
The basic underlying disorder is excessive oil production by the skin glands which in turn is acted upon by microorganisms that might be a fungus, called Malassezia furfur. This organism is normally present in the skin in small numbers, but sometimes its numbers increase, which causes unhealthy residue over the scalp resulting in mild or severe Dandruff. It is triggered by various internal & external factors like overactive oil glands, puberty, food allergies, stress, excessive perspiration, extreme weather changes, diet and is aggravated when exposed to UV light, hair dyes and harsh chemical shampoos.
Dandruff is clinically presented as scaly, itchy, thick, flaky, localized patches of scalp with mild redness. It is important to emphasize, that Dandruff is a very common condition, affecting all the age groups and those who have it are completely healthy and have no internal or Immune problems. Dandruff in itself leads to no major complications, but if left untreated over a long period of time, may lead to possible hair loss by clogging the hair roots and eventually weakening them. Dandruff presenting as inflamed form is called Seborrhoeic Dermatitis which may appear at any age after puberty. It fluctuates in severity and may persist for years. It may predispose to Psoriasis.

WARNING: There may be aggravation in some very sensitive patients. The most common one is when patient shifts from one mode of treatment like from allopathy to homoeopathy. Wherein patient abruptly stops taking strong allopathic medicines like steroids, anti-histamines, antibiotics etc. This action results in withdrawal of symptoms of the original disease which were suppressed with allopathy. Hence, never stop allopathy suddenly but gradually taper it while taking homoeopathy. This aggravation is commonly mistaken as homoeopathic aggravation.
