Dear Marcia,

There are a few causes of dandruff. There can be insufficient nutrients resulting from poor diet, poor digestion,or parasites. It can also be the result of too much heat in the skin. There are some products that I have found to be helpful for this. Omega 3,6,9 orally is very good at moisturizing the skin from the inside out. I would also give probiotics to aid better digestion and assimilation of nutrients. You could also look at the diet to determine if it needs to be changed. DERMA-IONX can also be beneficial for the skin and helps with assimilation of nutrients.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
