"Psoriasis: A common chronic, squamous dermatosis, marked by exacerbations and remissions and having a polygenic inheritance pattern. The most distinctive histological findings in well developed psoriasis are Munro microabscesses and spongiform pustules.

It is characterised clinically by the presence of rounded, circumscribed, erythematous, dry scaling patches of various sizes, covered by greyish white or silvery white, umbilicated and lamellar scales, which have a predilection for the extensor surfaces, nails, scalp, genitalia and lumbosacral region. Central clearing and coalescence of the lesions produce a wide variety of clinical configurations, including annular or circinate, discoid or nummular, figurate and gyrate arrangements." -On-Line Medical Dictionary, The CancerWEB Project

So, why would I post all that? Because it might be something that I have. I'm not entirely certain what most of the definition means, but, basically, it might be the cause of my excessive dandruff. Apparently, my supervisor at work has the condition. She explained to me the symptoms and I talked about what I was experiencing and let her see my scalp. She said that I definitely have it. Also, there's a shampoo for treating it, as well, that I can pick up for pretty cheap. I'm going to give it a shot pretty soon here. I'll update on how that goes.

Yeah, as a young'un back in the elementary days, there was the lice scare and when they had to check everyone for it, they'd always stop on me and get freaked out. But when I got home, it really wasn't lice. It most likely was psoriasis. I've had it before, and I've had it for a while, but I've used that shampoo (I think it's the kind that reminds me of tar, egh...), but it's healed now, and it went away. But yeah, it is pretty common, I'm just afraid it might've lead me into tricho.. (a mental trait I had issues with since 8th grade). Take care,
