Is Dandruff Contagious?

Answer

Dandruff is an infectious scalp condition that occurs when the glands become inflamed and secrete flaky scales. Dandruff becomes contagious when it only occurs as a ringworm which is common in children under the age of ten. Otherwise it can occur as a result of environmental, physical or cosmetic influences.
