Dandruff: Symptoms and treatment
What is dandruff?Dandruff (those dry, white flakes of skin you constantly find yourself brushing off your collar or shoulders) typically poses no health risk whatsoever. However, it can be a source of embarrassment, and the itchiness of the scalp that may come with it is a genuine nuisance. Many people incorrectly assume that the problem has something to do with hygiene and how often you wash your hair. Although it's true that shampooing infrequently can aggravate an existing case of dandruff, it will not bring one on. What actually lies behind dandruff is a simple difference between people in a natural process we all undergo every day: shedding skin cells. The difference is that some of us shed more than others.
Skin cells that grow and die off quickly are the cause of dandruff, but doctors do not know why this happens. One possible cause is a fat-eating fungus called Pityrosporum ovale, which is present in most people but to excess in dandruff sufferers. This fungus lives on the scalp of most healthy adults without causing any problems. Sometimes it grows out of control and it feeds on the oil made by hair follicles. This causes irritation, which leads to an increase in skin cell shedding.
This abundance of fungus in some people can be due to use of alkaline soaps, infrequent shampooing, hormonal fluctuations, certain neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease, a weakened immune system, and stress. Even the season of the year can contribute to the problem: Cold, dry winters are notorious for bringing on dandruff or making it worse.
If dandruff flakes are greasy and yellow, the probable cause is the skin condition known as seborrhoeic dermatitis; seborrhoea is usually also associated with redness of the scalp. Dry, thick lesions consisting of large, silvery scales may be traced to psoriasis of the scalp, a less common condition. These scaly conditions become a hazard only if you scratch to the point of causing breaks in the skin, which can place you at greater risk of infections, particularly from staphylococcal and streptococcal bacteria.
What are the symptoms of dandruff?
Symptoms of dandruff include:
- Flakes of skin that range from small and white to large, greasy, and yellow.
- Itchy flaking that appears on the scalp or eyebrows or around the hairline, ears or nose.
Seek medical advice if:
Scaling is greasy and yellow and does not respond to over-the-counter dandruff shampoos and lotions; you may have seborrhoeic dermatitis and need more aggressive treatment to relieve the redness, itching and flaking.

Dip them in a sulfurated lime dip. You can order it from Revival Animal Health. or 1-800-786-4751. What you need to order is the Derma Pet LimePlus Dip and the Health Guard Laundry Addiditive. The lime dip is yellow and faintly smells like eggs and will temporaily turn them yellow. Mix according to label directions and dip animals. Make sure to wet them down to the skin and kind of work it in. You might want to wear rubber gloves when doing this because it will turn your fingernails yellow and depending on the number of animals to be dipped it can be very harsh on your hands

On one visit I was diagnosed with a fungal skin rash, a fungal nail infection and thrush again only to have my theory of a "fungal" common thread dismissed.
