Seborrheic dermatitis, pronounced seb-o-REE-ik, is a typical skin disorder that primarily impacts your scalp. It results in skin irritation, flaky dandruff, and scaly spots. The face, sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears, eyelids, and chest are typical oily body regions affected. Although it doesn’t cause permanent hair loss and is not communicable, this condition can be unpleasant.
Without therapy, seborrheic dermatitis can fade away. To eliminate symptoms and stop flare-ups, you might also need to use medicated shampoo or other items on a long-term basis.
Dandruff, seborrheic eczema, and seborrheic psoriasis are other names for seborrheic dermatitis. Cradle cap is the term used to describe it when it affects infants.
