Dandruff can lower self-esteem and make it harder to wear darker clothes. The most common cause of dandruff is seborrheic dermatitis
, a rash
that can occur in childhood or adulthood. Flaking, itching and redness are all common symptoms of this condition.
But seborrheic dermatitis
also can show up on the face in addition to the scalp, leading to a rash
that can be much more visible to other people.
Some patients can manage to control these symptoms with OTC (over-the-counter) medications, but many need prescription options.
