When to Seek Medical Care
If dandruff is worsening (spreading, causing hair loss, increasing redness, painful, or infected) despite proper skin care and hair hygiene, call a heath care practitioner or dermatologist for an office appointment.
If an individual is so uncomfortable with his/her dandruff that his/her social, sleep, work, or other daily activities are disrupted, he/she needs a more effective treatment and should see a health care practitioner.
If a person is having a great deal of hair loss, seek care from a dermatologist.
