What can We
help with?

Rough & Damaged Hair

Rough and damaged hair primarily stems from dryness, contrary to the widespread belief that diet and direct nourishment are major contributors. In essence, environmental conditions and basic hair care, including practices like hair straightening and exposure to pollutants, significantly affect hair health. Although diet has minimal impact, a disciplined hair care regimen and professional guidance from a dermatologist are crucial in addressing these concerns, aiding in the restoration of smooth and healthy hair.

Dandruff & Flakes

Dandruff, characterized by white flakes and itching, primarily affects the scalp but may also appear on eyelashes, eyebrows, and beside the nose. An overgrowth of skin cells causes these flakes, which may sometimes be sticky, leading to skin bleeding upon removal. Severe dandruff, known as seborrheic dermatitis, can be exacerbated by cold weather, infrequent scalp cleaning, or microbial growth. Effective treatments, prescribed by a dermatologist, include topical lotions, antifungal shampoos, or oral antifungals, alongside a tailored hair care routine.

Scalp Boils & Bumps

Scalp boils and bumps, medically known as Folliculitis, manifest as red, painful, pus-filled lesions predominantly on the scalp, sometimes oozing pus or blood. They arise from various triggers such as bacterial or fungal infections, reactions to shaving, hair color, or oil massages. Treatment often entails oral antibiotics or antifungals, alongside topical antifungal applications, addressing the underlying causes and providing relief from this distressing condition.

Why choose a dermatologist over
trichologist or cosmetologist?

In addressing hair-related concerns, the decision between consulting a dermatologist or a trichologist can be pivotal. The distinction primarily hinges on the educational qualifications and recognition by authoritative medical bodies in India.

A dermatologist is a certified medical professional, whose title and qualifications are duly recognized by the Medical Council of India (MCI). To earn the title of a dermatologist, an individual must complete an extensive medical education (MBBS) followed by a specialized degree or diploma in dermatology. This rigorous training empowers dermatologists with a comprehensive understanding and the capability to treat a wide array of issues concerning the skin, hair, nails, and even sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

On the flip side, the titles of cosmetologist or trichologist are not recognized by the MCI. Trichology is a domain focusing on hair and scalp issues, and to become a trichologist, one typically undergoes a program in hair care provided by private entities. However, this training is not as exhaustive as the medical training dermatologists receive. Moreover, it’s not regulated or recognized by the primary medical council, which could potentially lead to a gap in the quality and safety of the care provided.

Therefore, when dealing with hair concerns, a dermatologist, with their broader medical knowledge and recognition by established medical bodies, is decidedly more equipped to provide a diagnosis and treatment plan that is both safe and effective. This choice not only ensures that you are receiving care from a medically qualified individual but also broadens the scope of possible treatments for your hair and scalp issues.

More about
Dandruff & Other Hair & Scalp Concerns

The primary reason why hair looks rough and damaged is its dryness. Contrary to popular belief, diet and direct hair nourishment has little to do with this damage that is visible. In reality environmental conditions and basic hair care play a major role in these cases.

Some of these conditions which cause the hair to become rough and damaged are listed below:

– Hair straightening

– Cysteine Therapy

– Smoking

– Exposure to environmental pollutants

A basic healthy hair care regimen including conditioning of the hair is the most important aspect of treatment. A good dermatologist will guide you in developing a hair care routine suitable to your specific hair.

Practices like hair straightening, cysteine therapy, smoking, and exposure to environmental pollutants contribute to rough and damaged hair.

Environmental exposure to pollutants, sun, and harsh weather conditions strip away natural oils, leading to dryness and damage.

Yes, a disciplined hair care regimen including regular conditioning and consulting with a dermatologist can help reverse damage to rough hair.

A dermatologist can provide personalized hair care routine recommendations and treatments to address the specific needs of your hair.

It’s advisable to limit hair straightening or use protective products to prevent further damage, and consult with a dermatologist for personalized advice.

Wearing hats, using gentle shampoos, and regular conditioning can help protect hair from environmental pollutants.

Yes, smoking restricts blood flow to the scalp, leading to hair dryness and damage over time.

Yes, cysteine therapy involves chemicals that can potentially dry out and damage hair if not done correctly or too frequently.

The frequency of professional treatments depends on the severity of hair damage and a dermatologist’s advice, but typically, treatments might be recommended every 4-6 weeks.

A balanced diet can promote overall hair health. However, addressing external care practices is crucial for treating rough and damaged hair.

Signs of damaged hair include split ends, extreme dryness, brittleness, hair thinning, and an increase in frizz and tangles.

Dandruff is seen as small to large white flakes accompanied by itching. These can even be sticky flakes, which may cause the skin to bleed upon removal of flakes.

It is mainly seen on scalp, sometimes seen on eyelashes, eyebrows and side of nose. Severe form of dandruff is also called seborrheic dermatitis. The basic cause for the same is that there is a overgrowth of skin cells leading to flakes.

Aggravating factors of dandruff include:

Winter (cold dry weather)

Infrequently cleaning of scalp (shampooing)

Associated fungal or bacterial growth

Treatment includes topical lotions which take care of the flakes.

It is accompanied by anti fungal shampoos or oral antifungals.

A dermatologist will help you establish a good hair care routine that works for your hair.

A dermatologist examines the scalp and other affected areas, possibly performing a skin scrape test to check for fungal or bacterial growth.

Persistent scratching due to dandruff can cause mechanical hair loss. Also, if dandruff is caused by a fungal infection, it may lead to temporary hair loss.

Antifungal shampoos target and eliminate the fungal growth on the scalp that can contribute to dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.

Yes, dandruff can reoccur, especially if scalp care routines are not maintained or if treatment is discontinued prematurely.

Stress may exacerbate dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis as it can impact the immune system, possibly leading to overgrowth of skin cells or fungal growth.

The frequency of shampooing varies among individuals, but a common recommendation is 2-3 times a week using a mild or anti-dandruff shampoo.

No, dandruff is not contagious as it results from individual scalp conditions and not from a transmissible pathogen.

The time frame varies, but noticeable improvements can often be seen within a few weeks of consistent treatment and proper scalp care.

A balanced diet may support overall skin and scalp health, but there is limited evidence linking diet changes directly to dandruff reduction.

Environmental factors like cold, dry weather can exacerbate dandruff by drying out the scalp, while humid climates might promote microbial growth leading to dandruff.

Yes, dandruff flakes can vary in size and can be dry or oily. Seborrheic dermatitis, a severe form of dandruff, tends to produce oily, yellowish flakes.

While there’s no permanent cure, dandruff can be effectively managed with the right treatment and a good scalp hygiene routine, minimizing its recurrence and impact.

These are called Folliculitis. Colloquially these are also called Bal-Tod in Hindi or Heat Boils in English. This condition presents as red painful, pus filled boils. It dominantly occurs on the scalp. Also in this condition the boils ooze pus or blood.

Some of the main causes for this condition include:

– Bacterial infection

– Reaction to shaving

– Reaction to hair colour, oil massage etc.

– Fungal infection.

Treatments by for boils on scalp include:

– Oral Antibiotics

– Oral Antifungals

– Anti fungal shampoo

– Anti fungal creams.

The triggers can include bacterial or fungal infections, reactions to shaving, hair color, or oil massages.

Yes, bacterial Folliculitis can be contagious, hence maintaining good personal hygiene and avoiding shared personal items is advisable.

Diagnosis is primarily visual, but a dermatologist might conduct a skin culture test to identify the type of bacteria or fungus causing the infection.

While some OTC antiseptic shampoos or creams may provide temporary relief, it’s crucial to consult a dermatologist for a precise diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Oral antibiotics are quite effective in treating bacterial Folliculitis but a full course is necessary to prevent recurrence.

Yes, maintaining a clean scalp, avoiding irritants like harsh hair products, and following a dermatologist’s treatment plan can help prevent recurrence.

No, self-draining can worsen the infection and even cause scarring. It’s advisable to seek professional medical help.

Folliculitis often presents as red, painful, pus-filled boils, whereas acne may not be as painful and might not have pus. A dermatologist can provide an accurate diagnosis.

Yes, severe or chronic Folliculitis can damage hair follicles, leading to temporary or even permanent hair loss.

While some may suggest home remedies, it’s crucial to consult a dermatologist to receive accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.
