A good friend of mine was telling me today at lunch about how her 11-year-old son seems to have dandruff. She is wondering if it is part of puberty and how she can treat it. I know for adults there are medicated shampoos but I'm honestly not sure if these are okay for kids.
My friend said that her son will get a couple of flaky areas on the sides of his head and the flakes look more yellowish than white. She thinks he's pretty good about how he shampoos so she doesn't think it's a hygiene issue. I told her I'd come here and ask the amazing EmpowHer community to see how we can help her. I honestly have always though of dandruff as an adult issue but her puberty comment seemed to make sense too. Thanks everyone! Michelle
