Everyone has experienced dandruff at least once in their life. The culprit of this unpleasant condition, often accompanied by itching, is a conditionally pathogenic fungus of the genus Malassezia. Normally, it lives on a healthy scalp, but when conditions change (for example, a lack of zinc or hyperfunction of the sebaceous glands or immunodeficiency), its properties change, triggering seborrheic dermatitis. This is an inflammation with an overly rapid renewal of skin cells, which causes dandruff flakes. The scientific name for dandruff is seborrhea, and from the name it follows that this problem is related to sebum, that is, sebum.

Types of dandruff

If a dandruff is noticeable all over the head, it is white in color, small scales easily fall off the hair, while the scalp itches and itches, then this is dry dandruff. It can only be caused by a fungus and is not always associated with a change in the composition of the sebum.

If dandruff denser and larger, yellowish color it is difficult to separate from the scalp, localized mainly behind the ears and along the forehead line, then this is oily dandruff. Not only the fungus is to blame for its appearance, but also the sebum that has changed in composition.

Also found mixed dandruffwhen particles of both oily and dry dandruff are present on the scalp. As a rule, oily dandruff is also accompanied by itching.

And finally there is physiological dandruff, it occurs only in newborns. Under the influence of mother’s hormones, the composition of sebum changes dramatically and yellowish dense crusts, also called «milk», appear on the baby’s scalp, under the hair. This is seborrheic dermatitis in newborns.

Many mothers are concerned that milk crusts can cause discomfort and itching to the child. Actually it is not. But they can interfere with normal hair growth, so they need to be carefully and gradually removed. Since the particles are quite tightly adhered to the head, they rarely disappear on their own.

What about adults?

Sebum nourishes and protects the hair and scalp from the external environment and bacteria, it does not cause us discomfort. But under certain external and internal conditions, its composition can change, this leads to the activation of the Malassezia fungus, and then to inflammation. In turn, the inflamed skin begins to renew itself too quickly, hyperkeratosis appears — dandruff begins. The reason why the composition of sebum changes can be anything from a change in season to a serious illness. Therefore, it is customary to fight seborrheic dermatitis symptomatically, that is, to remove only the manifestations of the problem.
