Question:

Why does dandruff make the scalp itch?

Answer:

Typical dandruff doesn't itch. Redness and itching is actually seborrheic dermatitis, which is a common type of eczema. The cause of seborrheic dermatitis is largely unknown, but seasonal changes, stress, and immuno-suppression may be causes.
