10 Year Old with Severe Dandruff, Yeast Infections
Question: my 10 year old daughter suffers from terrible dandruff. I was told to use Denorex, an anti-dandruff shampoo but it seems worse. I have read all the notes about "Ted" treatments and I wonder what is OK to use on a child? By the way, she also has had several cases of yeast infection in the last year. SO is the dandruff likely to be linked to fungus? The rest of her facial skin is rather oily and she's had a lot of small pimples as the start of puberty hormones are raging. My questions are: 1) Should I just use the apple-cider-vinegar-with-hydrogen-peroxide-and-water as an every other day shampoo for her and stop using any other commercial shampoos? 2) Also, I'm not sure what borax is or where to get it and how to mix it and whether I should use it on her and when? 3) Finally, do I mix tea tree oil and lavender oil straight and also apply that to her head? 4) what I'm asking is how 1), 2) and 3) go together as a regimen. I'd appreciate your input soon. Other kids at school are starting to notice and avoid her as if she had the plague. Signed: A concerned Mom.
