Dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis are conditions that share a common manifestation: the patient's scalp or skin produces scales. They may also share a common etiology. Many of the same nonprescription products will effectively treat both conditions. [U.S. Pharmacist 26(4) 2001. © 2001 Jobson Publishing Corp.]
