Do any of you folks have dandruff?  I have never had it before until just recently and its ridiculous.  Its not just a little bit.  I used an entire bottle of medicated shampoo and that hasn't helped a lick.  I rarely use hair spray or other products.  I have a dr appt at the end of this month.  I was thinking about bringing it up to my rheumy but i'm not sure if I will sound silly asking about it.

It might be psoritisis (sp?).

Try tea tree oil shampoo. It stinks but works on scalp issues.

Dandruff, is something i do suffer with it started a while back and i believe that i just wasnt rinsing my hair probley yet time and time again even though i rinsed all the soap out still dandruff would form it would be flaky and visable most of time. I tried this shampoo called T-GEL shampoo it has a formula in it which helps rid of dandruff it even helps contrrol psoriasis if thats what you turn out to have. Once i stopped using it i relised the dandruff came back. (Since, i have had to move onto another shampoo coz of my lupus hair loss) other than that T-GEL was great for when i had dandruff by the way if you use it everytime you wash your hair in a month the dandruff is gone anyway


Good Luck though

So I've been using the head and shoulders shampoo and conditioner for about a week and I can already tell a HUGE difference. Almost no dandruff at all right now. :)
