Excessive dandruff? Tried all anti Dandruff shampoos?. This article will explain what is Seborrheic Dermatitis? Causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis? and what is best homeopathic treatment for Seborrheic Dermatitis.

Seborrheic Dermatitis is an inflamed dermatological condition that commonly occurs all over the skin, including the scalp, face, back or chest, or on the breasts, arms, buttocks, legs or stomach. Seborrhoeic dermatitis is often called seborrheic Eczema and is characterized by an inflammation of the scalp, face, chest, or stomach, or of any area which naturally produces an oily substance called sebum.
Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is sometimes also called seborrheic Eczema and is often caused by a reaction to shampoo, makeup or perfumes, physical stress, or allergies. It tends to be more common in young adults and infants and is sometimes accompanied by itching and redness. If it occurs in babies, it causes cradle cap. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis can be triggered by exposure to chemicals such as those found in shampoos, bubble baths, lotions, and toilet paper products. Malassezia is often present in conjunction with seborrheic Dermatitis. A diagnosis of Malassezia requires a biopsy to confirm a diagnosis of seborrheic Dermatitis. There is also an immunosuppression therapy used in the treatment of seborrheic Dermatitis. The incidence of seborrhoeic dermatitis has been increasing among adults, with a reported prevalence of nearly 20% in the United States. It is more common in adults over 60 years of age and is less common in infants. Its reported prevalence is likely due to higher rates of contact with external factors such as pollution and aging. Prevalence is also likely influenced by varying environmental conditions including humidity, sun exposure, and skin dryness. 
The risk factors for seborrhoeic dermatitis include
  • Living in a physically polluted environment
  • Living in a smoggy area
  • Having a history of allergic reactions. 
  • Weakened immune system
  • History of neurologic or psychogenic conditions
To prevent the development of this condition, it is recommended to avoid chemical and over the counter products that could trigger an allergic reaction, to use only non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic cosmetics and to regularly use a sunscreen containing zinc oxide.
