Dandruff is a tendency of the skin of the scalp. It is identified as the dry flaking of skin of the scalp. This usually occurs if the normal fungal flora of the scalp increases. Some conditions of the scalp like psoriasis , seborrheic dermatitis etc can mimic dandruff and need to be differentiated.
It can be kept under control but there is no permanent cure. Maintenance with an antidandruff shampoo once in a while, after the active stage is treated will be necessary.
