It has been my understanding from many years ago. A helmet should be replaced after any hard impact, heavy scratch or ding. Any of these comprimise the helmets ability to absorb impact or stay in tact.
I don't know if age has any effect, styrofoam has the shelf life of nuclear waste I would also guess helmet safety standards have risen in the last 18 years.
Try a HJC, inexpensive, fits well, good looking, all the approvals...........
Let us know!
