Seborrheic Dermatitis

What’s Seborrheic Dermatitis treatment?

Seborrheic Dermatitis is a common type of eczema frequently seen in the areas of body that produce fat such as scalp, nose, chest and upper back. This can be observed as scaled red blemishes, oily or oily areas or dandruff. Although seborrheic dermatitis may affect everyone, it’s mostly common in babies and adults between 30 and 60. Inflammations may take years in adults.

Reasons Of Seborrheic Dermatitis

Even though dermatologists haven’t found any certain reason for seborrheic dermatitis, there are two situations which may be associated with it:

  • A yeast (fungus) found in the fat secretion in skin called “Malassezia”
  • Immune system irregularity

In addition, it’s known that seborrheic dermatitis is not caused by bad hygiene and allergy and is not contagious.

Treatment

Seborrheic dermatitis can be treated just like many other types of eczema with shampoos, creams and lotions with active ingredient. These treatments may include prescription hydrocortisone, clobetasol and desonide. Antifungal gels, creams or shampoos may also be recommended. A nonprescription domestic medication can cure the situation such as a dandruff shampoo with active ingredients like zinc pyrithione, salicylic acid and sulphur, coal tar, selenium sulphur and ketoconazole.
