hi... i wanna ask tht is dandruff a kinda epidemic disease which can easily b transmitted frm one another via sharing common hair accessories (like hair combs & clips etc) or bath towel ? or can it b transmitted if the victim(the person who is suffering frm it) places his/her hair accessories close 2 other ppls' hair accessories?

Hi snq,
Thanks for your question, and for finding EmpowHER. Here is a link that explains the common causes and risks for dandruff (suborrheic dermatitis), hope it helps!
If you have it and it's a particularly bothersome case, you can visit with a dermatologist to help find a treatment that works for you. There also are many over-the-counter treatments (shampoos or lotions) that you can try. Treatment often takes a few weeks or longer, and may need to be repeated if the condition comes back.
Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
