Really Bad Skin...
gaiaky posted:
I've had dandruff my entire life. Or at least what I thought was basic dandruff, but now I'm not so sure. I'm using the STRONGEST medicated shampoo that I could get from the store (which I've been using now for about two months), but it does do anything for me. My scalp is still excessively flaky. And that's not the worst of it, it's down onto my forehead, and eyebrows. I mean, the dry skin isn't as bad as my scalp, but its VERY noticeable. I've tried shampoos, moisturizers, tea tree oil with an olive oil base, I've even tried tea tree oil in my shampoos, lotions, moisturizes, etc... Nothing's working. I can't keep going to school like this. I feel gross, and I've felt like this for years.

What is it? What can I do to stop it?
