Dandruff is often seen in the primary care setting as well as in the dermatology field. In this article, we review the mostly used drugs for treating dandruff and compare their efficacy in eradicating the symptoms of dryness and flaking of the scalp, along with providing relief of associated pruritus. Examples of such agents include keratolytics, regulators of keratinization, antimicrobials, and naturopathic therapies. We examine their mechanisms of action and their efficacy in treating dandruff.
