Scalp peeling or what is more commonly known as dandruff, refers to a common condition of scalp in which small pieces of dry skin come off the scalp. If one has a dark hair or someone is wearing dark colours, he or she might notice the flakes in their hair or on their shoulders. This peeling off the scalp might also make one’s scalp have an itchy feeling.
Let us take a look at some of the causes behind this:
The symptoms of dandruff include white flakes of dead skin in the hair, itchy, red and scaly scalp.
Treatments in Dermatology
Dermatologists offer the following recommendations for treating dandruff:
Follow the Instructions On the Bottle of Dandruff Shampoo:
Dermatologists suggest that, in order to get the best results out of the shampoos containing different active ingredients, one must always follow the instructions given on the bottles. For instance, some shampoos for dandruff require that people must lather the shampoo into the hair and scalp, and then leave the shampoo for about 5 mins before rinsing.
Another effective treatment method followed by dermatologists for treating the problem of scalp peeling is by using shampoos like Neutrogena made of Coal Tar. It helps to slow down the process of scalp dying and ultimately flake off.
Shampoos containing selenium sulfide:
People suffering from scalp peeling often get suggested by dermatologists to use selenium sulfide shampoos as they assist in slowing one’s skin cells down from dying down and also can reduce malassezia. One should use the shampoos as directed and require to rinse properly after shampooing.
These shampoos like Nizoral, refer to broad-spectrum antifungal agent that work well when other shampoos fail in their attempts to reduce dandruff.
