how to get rid of dundruff -flaky skin on the scalp -by Dermatologist Dr Liv


White and Gray flakes on your hairline around your beautiful black dress or Sack This is something what it’s annoying you and you getting it all the time particularly if you’re stressed so you saw it on somebody else and you wanting what it is and what you can do not to get it maybe in the future if Dandruff is a topic you’re interested in you definitely should stick now with me So, Hi everybody who everybody who doesn’t know me My name is Dr. Liv I’m a board certified dermatologist actually Everybody is calling me Dr. Liv…..My whole name is Dr Liv Kraemer Anyhow, I’m sitting beautiful beautiful clinic in the middle of city Zürich Center And I decided to do another video about a topic you actually asking me a lot about it “Dandruff” So all those flakes around the skull Around your beautiful clothes and something what do we want to get rid of and you wanting how does it comes? So let’s maybe go through what is dandruff? We don’t really know Why does it happening exactly, but we know that because of a higher production you remember if you have seen all my other videos about Blackheads, Whiteheads I like to draw. But today I will not draw So just let me explain a little bit just briefly. So the surface of the skin also on the scalp is like a cobblestone Wall You have a great protection from underneath and on top everything all the dead skin cells shredding away. Good production Everything is shredding away So sometimes the productions increase and you shredding more cells away and this is happening on the scalp. So and Nothing happens was just one reason as I always say it is like a Swiss watch You have a couple of wheels moving before the big hand is moving. So sometimes in life you something gets into imbalance, so because of stress because of certain reason happening and the family at home at school wherever So suddenly your imbalance Switches. So what do I mean with imbalance? So you have a lot of tubulin fungus on your scalp? You never alone So they love you you love them. But as I said in certain situation in life these imbalance can Kind of get out of balance so certain Kind of funguses
sometimes some bacteria growing So in the course of dandruff or in the topic of dandruff, most of the time it is a certain kind of fungus we call Malassezia furfur Funny name it is not a dog It is actually a of fungus which is not on your skin and it doesn’t bother but if the imbalance happening they are over growing and Because of acts of oil production the more shredding of skin and this fungus, this fungus Really loves it and grows more. So you’re getting more of these flakes Visible, so they’re of course different courses what can kind of getting to this Dandruff Just very briefly because it might confuse you. Otherwise it is of course and Seborrheic dermatitis What does it mean..? “Seborro” means kind of
Sebum more oil production “Orrh” means? Floating, it’s Latin. So Seborrheic means more Sebum happening or getting produced and dermatitis is everything what has to do with skin and skin kind of Imbalances. So so if you have more Oil production, Certain areas typical man, they have it like around them I kind of the eyebrows between the nose and of course in the hair So, if this is happening these imbalances They’re getting producing more oil and therefore more specific fungus can grow because the imbalance is happening Another reason could be also “Eczema” So if you really have dry skin “Atopic Dermatitis”, I don’t want to go to this topic or sometimes would also happen When you get more kind of shredding away of dead skin cells which you see as dandruff is “Contact Dermatitis” What is Contact Dermatitis so just imagine something it doesn’t like your skin? Oh your skin doesn’t like it for example, but always having contact right all the time And and finally your skin says no no no, no, no, right and it’s producing or they’re happening certain pathways I don’t want to get complicated So suddenly you’re developing a kind of a Dermatitis because of a contact of certain ingredients So make it now easy for example You’re using too harsh products kind of dyes hair sprays hair gels hair Always getting in contact with your scalp and suddenly it’s starting to kind of getting this imbalance because of this Contact dermatitis You have also have kind of really have a fungus infection or some “Psoriasis” which can cause this Dandruff but this is really sickness I don’t want to talk about illnesses, I just want to talk about Certain light Dandruff on your hair scalp Which you see as flakes on your ear lightly and also on Your beautiful gown or beautiful dress. we call it in a normal way Dandruff So, what you can do to kind of make this balance happening first of all Stress Reduction…..So, really try to figure out what is happening in your family and your personal life Maybe there was a divorce from you from your family For mom and dad, maybe you had some stress at school or university So try to really get some exercise done. Calm down try yoga Try to switch off phones to calm down with all the social media So this is definitely one kind of cause, which you can reduce by yourself if you get sick it of course can happen as well in balancing or of course if It is really cold and dry outside. So heavy winter it can actually push this. So what? possibilities you have so maybe think about what not to do first, so don’t use this heavy oils right because oils heavy oils on the scalp and Heavy kind of maybe like putting something on to make it even one like warm oils or warm kind of towels this will actually Give it an environment which these funguses the bacteria will love So stop doing this wash your hair regularly with certain Shampoos the ingredients. I will talk later on Don’t stick down to try to kick away don’t try to pick away the scales. Please don’t because it even get worse why because all the bacteria around your nails and you kind of getting with the You are getting the bacteria inside because you hurting your scalp. And then you really might developing a heavy infection, So don’t pick…..! So now let’s come to ingredients. You really can look for out there out there I mean without prescription in grocery stores Different countries different possibilities. So let’s stick with these which are probably available in all countries. There are a couple of ingredients Let’s say four and five of them. So one I can’t barley pronounce or that one put it somewhere here It’s called Zinc Pyrithione Right as you know, English is not my mother tongue So therefore, Excuse me….! if I don’t pronounce it, Right…? Right….! So therefore I put it here somewhere here in the screen, So Zinc Pyrithion Right…What is it…? this ingredient Actually is Antifungal,Antibacterial and Antiseptic So it’s kind of coming down the overproduction the imbalance Right…So, used for shampoos Which have this ingredient then you will probably find if you Google certain things Salicylic acid as an ingredient So, What is actually Salicylic acid if you remember I was talking this in my Black Heads & White Heads video about acne So now you wonder why Acne and Dandruff So, Salicylic acid is removing dead skin cells on top So, What does it mean…? If you have really heavy scaly things don’t pick try to use then the ingredient Salicylic acid They are available in lower concentration to remove the stickiness in a kind of a shampoo to really get other Ingredients working better….RIght…? So, this is why Salicylic acid is in most shampoos against Dandruff Visible another one is Selenium Sulfide…..Right? So, It is an ingredient used mostly in shampoos free availables or without prescription in a couple of countries Against Specific Funguses So, keeping this balance back into shape So this is what selenium sulfate is as ingredient listed in the dandruff shampoos And for last one it is an ingredient in couple of country prescription in other Countries available over-the-counter. So in a grocery store it is thing within “Ketoconazole” So, this ingredients specific against funguses and a low concentration and shampoos you can use but don’t use the Ingredient just like all the time really go to dermatologist and Speak to him about how to use it properly If it’s real the thing the real thing for you is dandruff not caused by something else So, try Summarizing, these three ingredients look for if you go on searching for Ingredients or shampoos or gels against dandruff knowing while using them Don’t pick because you getting it even worse you even really developing infections So don’t pick wash your hair regularly with one of the ingredients Try not to use harsh product anyway on your scalp and try to reduce stress So, I hope this was of interest of you.

    Hi Dr Liv, thank you for the video! I have a question thatโ€™s been bothering me for a very long time: Iโ€™m a student in junior high school and I apply sunscreen in the morning, but I sweat throughout the day because of various reasons, should I reapply sunscreen afterwards? Could you make a video on HOW to REAPPLY SUNSCREEN (do you have to clean your face then reapply; when you sweat how should you reapply etc.)? Especially for students, because itโ€™s almost impossible to find time to reapply sunscreen throughout the day, how should we do so? How often should we reapply sunscreen? Thank you so so so much for all your help, I love your channel and subscribed a long time ago, would really appreciate if you could answer my question because itโ€™s really been BUGGING me for a long time๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“ THANK YOU ! WITH LOVE ๐Ÿ’• โค๏ธ Juicy~~

    Hi Dear Dr.Liv ! โ™ฅ๏ธ I have a question about CC cream and some foundation that they have SPF in them. Based on the amount we need to use for the safety of our skin ( like atleast 1/2 tea spoon ) , so a foundation with spf is so useless. Am I right?! And forexample Iโ€™m using Itcosmetics CC cream, but actually I cannot put the appropriate amount of it for its spf on my skin ( I get plastic appearance) . Can we say we should forget that spf numbers on these type of products? Can you make a video about them? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒท
