Re: dandruff on back of head and throat contrictions
The throat constrictions sounds like it should be worked up. It's a pretty common sign of an enlarged or inflamed thyroid. Does she have any other hypo symptoms like fatigue, feeling cold or hot and weight gain or loss? Skin disorders are common and some report dandruff or very dry skin.
Has she seen a doctor and had her thyroid palpated? I would also recommend she get an ultrasound of the area as well as the proper thyroid blood tests; TSH, Free T3, Free T4, and the antibodies: TPO-Ab and TG-Ab.
This will rule in or out a thyroid issue.
