Seborrheic Dermatitis Treatment

  • Posted: March 5, 2013

Seborrhoeic dermatitis is an inveterate inflammatory disease where skin areas with developed sebaceous follicles are damaged. Often Seborrhoeic dermatitis results from Malassezia furfur, the yeast-likelipophilic fungi. More than 90% of the population of these fungi are part of normal microscopic flora of skin integument.

Normally the immune system of an organism controls the microorganism’s quantity of skin integument, though under certain conditions this control can fail. The result of Seborrhoeic dermatitis is often diabetes mellitus where the presence of the number of pathogenic flora can double.

Seborrhoeic dermatitis in hair is accompanied by excessive peeling of the skin resulting in scruff, red spots, and in some cases the peeling or overlapping furfures appear on the face and trunk while the pathological process is focalized.

The keystone of Seborrhoeic dermatitis treatment should consist of proper care given to the hair and face. In some cases local anti-inflammatory medicines are prescribed.
