Dandruff problem winter

Common Questions and Answers about Dandruff problem winter

dandruff

There are also some parasitic skin disorders such as Cheyletiella (known as “walking dandruff”) that can cause the coat to appear flaky and dry. This problem is more common during the winter when the air becomes drier than normal. Other than that, a good source of Omega-3 fatty acid will certainly help you. I wanted, however, to talk to you about this particular subject: Omega-3.
Of course, a vet would likely know if they looked at it. But with the dandruff like description and the winter months where heaters run and humidity tends to be lower in the house, it seems as if dry skin is a possibility. You might try a humidifier in the area she spends most her time.
I know the vet said dry food is a lot healthier with a can of wet food once a week which I havent done after the mess he made yikes... I just want to get the dandruff problem over with so whatever it takes... Thanks ZQ I will let you know how it goes..
my son had this same problem. i have bad dandruff when the seasons change, so bad sometimes even the shampoos don't clear it up. i now use a product by aveda called balancing infusion. when this was a new product it was promoted for scalp use, now aveda promotes it in their skincare line. the ingredients are all natural and it works great. so when my son had bad cradle cap i had tried everything and then remembered the aveda.
Part of the problem may be you are bathing too often and stripping the natural pils. What breed dog is this? Do you have a flea problem? Have you asked your Vet about a once a month topical treatment or the new oral Comfortis? What food ate you feeding? I would try transitioning to a food with no grain, esp corn. You might try a small bag of the Pro Plan salmon or there are other foods available with fish in them. You can try adding some Omega 3' or fish oil or Flaxseed oil once a day.
After searching the internet I found some things that MAY be causes, but nothing quite matched up. Of course now it's winter, and my skin has been very dry. I started using an off-brand dandruff shampoo a few weeks ago. My scalp is itchy, and has very slight flaking. I also had some symptoms that matched to something like dust mites, but nothing mentioned spots like I have nor do pictures match up.... What could be causing this? Is this something just from dry skin?
I would try using some form of lice treatment for a month just to see if that helps. It could also just be winter skin making you itchy. The black pieces could be dirt,dust, sand, or even hair follicles. The white could be dandruff or sand.
my thoughts exactly, Poke. I have a similar problem, more predominant in the winter. I talked with my stylist about it, and she gave me sample bottles of Nioxin. The original ones she gave me didn't do much, but when we switched to the formula for colored hair it worked great. Talk to you salon and see if they have some sample or smaller (hence, cheaper) bottles that you can try. As with all salon products, you're going to spend a little more, but hey...if it helps...it helps.
My 2 yr old girl is having a dandruff but a lot and i used a lot of shampoo and even tea tree oil i tried it but its not working.and also her fingers are becoming dry and because its drying its having a wound at he end of the day.Please help me!
About 4 months ago I was hit with the dreaded winter dandruff. At first it was the typical type of dandruff I usually get every winter but after about 2 months it started getting bad. I have tried head and shoulders and various NATURAL shampoos (NON SLS, no chemical shampoos) including lavender and tea tree but with no avail. For the past 2 months my dandruff has gotten much worse.
Hello, From the symptoms this problem of dry itchy scalp can be due to dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium. But if your hair is colored, don't use products with selenium sulfide or sulfur.
I don't get dandruff....or at least on my scalp...I seem to only get it on my forehead and eyebrows. This morning it was so bad that it looked like I had been peeling after a bad sunburn. The flakes of skin were dropping off in huge pieces. I've been told to use moisturizers...which do nothing but cause a rash. Aloe-Vera burns my skin. Allergic to something in Noxzema...causes me to stop breathing. I have very sensitive skin as you can see.
I have been having a problem with my scalp for the past 2 years I have been to my doctor and 3 dermatologists, with no help, my problem is driving me crazy. My scalp is hard and dry and it feels like a layer of my hair is stuck to my head they only way I can explain this is I feel like my scalp is clogged, I am now getting scabs on my head, my head is very sore, I can't take this feeling anymore I have a tendency to stay in and not go out because it make me that irritable.
I have had this problem for years, and it keeps getting worse each year. My scalp itches to the point of insanity, and has little sore bumps all around. This started in the winter months, and would get better in the summer. Now it plagues me 9 out of 12 months a year. I buy the strongest medicated shampoo I can find at CVS, and wash my hair daily with it. I leave it on for the duration of my shower. Not only is it irritating, but also embarrasing. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Thanks!
I dont have any fungus / worms kind of things on my scalp but yes i do have dandruff and in winter its a lot of dandruff ..
i saw a skin doctor for something simillar when i was only 25 and he suggested i use a dandruff shampoo. the problem with me is not only on my scalp. the only relief i get is using head and shoulders in the dark blue bottle i think it has a different chemical in it. also i later found i have a thyroid problem and dry skin and brittle hair are linked to it, winter weather makes my condition worse . I also take fish oil or flax seed it seems to help also. i hope this helps you.
I have had an itchy scalp with "dandruff" flakes for the last several months and it has been progressively getting worse. (With dry winter conditions?) On my doctor's advise, I have tried many different shampoos for this--fist Head and Shoulders, then a corticosteroid shampoo ("Capex"? expensive, hard to use, didn't lather), then Nizerol (sp?), then a coal-tar based shampoo.
and I have to scratch. What could be the problem? This problem has been there for years and doesnt seem to go away... I have acne most times..ranging from mild to severe...occasionally and also occasional dandruff. Please help!
Have many of you had much bother with psoriasis? I got major dandruff which has mostly cleared up with tar shampoo and betamethasone lotion. I also have psoriasis on my knees and elbows and some quarter-sized splotches all in a horizontal line across my abdomen, just above the site where I inject the peginterferon. Hopefully, this will clear up after treatment.
I haven't seen any dandruff on her, but my other cat has dandruff. So could it just be the air is dry? This is our first winter/spring in this apartment and this is the first time she started to do this. Is it possible for her to get an allergy from the food that she has been eating for a while now?
In my observation most cases of Psoriasis start with Dandruff and or Seborrhoea. The causes are many as per Holistic science. Some of the ways to control this condition are as follows: Factors that help Psoriasis to invade / grow: 1. Since more than 80% of Psoriatics suffer from dandruff, presence of dandruff could be the early sign of Psoriasis or even triggers Psoriasis. 2. Habit of taking frozen foods and tinned foods. 3. use of lemon in any type of food and drink 4.
I was recently diagnosed with Seb Derm. Have had redness on the side of my nose and under my eyes, and tiny flakes in my beard for about a month and a half now. I was given the Ketocy...2% cream which seemed to do absolutely nothing for 2-3 times a day for two weeks. I do not really have any problems with dandruff other than some small flakes from time to time, which usually go away with H&S Shampoo. I am in good health and have good personal hygeine.
Anything that has touched the scalp is infected--that inculdes furniture, all her hair flying around, dandruff whreever it setteled, and most importantly her wig which I doubt can be washed in boiling hot water and otherwise will keep reinfecting. Any disinfecting ideas? Any non-toxic-treatment options? What can I do in case I've got it--it's hard to check a head that has so much hair on it ?
When I was younger I went to see a dermatologist who prescribed bactroban(mupirocin) which treated it symptomatically and it went away for about 4 months then, it came back in the winter(cold weather again). I have seen other posts and have looked elsewhere on the internet, but I either find rashes that are more severe or in different locations. Please help.
he has had them for several years,they always go away in the winter and he has never had a problem with them until now.hes 13 now and it is bothering him for the first time.please help.
Heres, the problem, Iam 25 years old and i have had these soars that used to come and go during winter and I thought it was just for dry skin, well now its summer, and I have them and they are back with a vengence! They itch, and when i scratch them, they leak. It's gross, and I don't remember them at all starting out as pimples but bumps. they are all over my scalp, from the front of my hairline to the back. They itch and multiply and get bigger.
I am an Irish man living in Japan and have been suffering from a mysterious skin condition which has me driven to the point of insanity. If anyone on here could shed light on the issue I would be forever grateful!! My problem started perhaps six months ago with large patches of itchy, dry and scaly skin. Being in the midst of a dry, cold Japanese winter, I put it down to a case of seasonally aggravated atopy, which I have suffered from in the past.
My doc looked and there is no dandruff. I tried hot oil packs, all sorts of different shampoos, etc. thinking of going to salon and see if they have a suggestion. I know I saw somewhere here recently this being mentioned. I hate to keep scratching with the way my hair is breaking off I am sure this does not help that. Any suggestions? Besides for this I am feeling good, I look at it like running a marathon.
if you have a basic fungus problem that relates to dandruff, try treating with: Nizoral cream 2%, or something that contains 'ketoconazole'. it may take a couple of days. also maybe follow up weekly with olive oil or tea tree oil. i hope you do not have the same unknown itch that i have (witch may be a specific unknown type of fungus or even a parasite), i still cant get anyone to tell me what it is.
