Scalp Dandruff: 

Nearly 50 % of the world will be affected by dandruff, the well-known flaky scalp condition. 

A number of factors contribute to dandruff including oil gland activity, a yeast known as Malassezia, the state of our immune system, stress and even some medications. 

 

What is the treatment?

Anti-dandruff shampoos are the basis of treatment - with shampoos like ketoconazole, selenium sulphide, ciclopirox and zinc pyrithione being used to treat the condition. Overall, the world spends about 2 billion dollars annually to treat this otherwise harmless condition.
