Dandruff Treatment in Patna

Dandruff is an extremely common problem faced by many. Dandruff occurs when a small bit of dry skin is shed from the scalp. This can cause itchiness in individuals. It appears to be a common problem, but it is not. Many a time, we confuse seborrheic dermatitis (a chronic form of eczema) and other skin conditions that lead to a scaly scalp with dandruff. Hence, it is recommended that on detection, a client should visit a clinic and get it diagnosed by a professional. Here at our clinic, we provide world-class dandruff treatment in Patna.

Reasons for dandruff

The top layer of our skin all over our body is constantly shed and renewed. This cycle is not visible to our naked eyes. It mostly goes unnoticed. It happens with our scalp as well. Inflammation of the scalp causes the cells to stick together, which causes the cell to stick together, and we notice visible flakes, which we term as dandruff.

This is especially noticeable over dark coloured clothes and is embarrassing. It is usually accompanied by an itchy scalp, which causes severe irritation among many. It is extremely common among adults all over the world. People with oily skin are more prone to getting dandruff, the reason being a yeast called Malassezia globosa feeds on oils on the scalp. Males tend to be more affected by dandruff in comparison to females. A family history of dandruff can also be a cause. Studies have proved that dandruff, like many other diseases, runs in the genes of an individual and may pass on.

Seborrheic Dermatitis

If someone is faced with a severe form of dandruff, it is most likely Seborrheic Dermatitis. The scalp tends to get red, itchy, and scaly. Consequently, it can spread to other areas of the body. It is important that a client immediately visits a medical practitioner in this case and gets the treatment. If not treated, it can cause permanent hair loss leading to baldness.

Difference between dandruff and psoriasis

The symptoms of dandruff and psoriasis are quite similar. It is very difficult to distinguish one from the other. However, there is a stark difference between the two. Dandruff never spreads beyond the hairline, psoriasis generally spreads beyond the hairline. It is to be noted that while psoriasis is chronic, that is, it stays. However, dandruff comes and goes, it is not permanent. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. Cells that are meant to fight off disease instead attack their own skin.
