Seborrheic dermatitis is more commonly known as dandruff and is a recurring skin problem. The reason that it develops is because of glands in the skin which produce more oil than is needed. It causes the skin inflammation, a reddish color to the skin and results in drying out.

If you look closely at the affected area you will also notice that it has scaling that is yellowish. It will feel greasy to the touch. Seborrheic dermatitis not only affects the scalp but can attack the forehead, nose, eyelids and eyebrows. Rarely it attacks the areas underneath the breasts, buttocks, underarms and groin area.

The initial cause of this condition has not been determined but it is suspected that hormones and stress have a role in it’s development. There is no cure but there are things you can do to control the symptoms. There is a chance that it can go into remission but it typically comes back at a later date.

Infants are among the most likely to develop this problem. When it develops in them it is more commonly known as cradle cap. It can also appear around the groin and buttock area of them and mimic diaper rash. Children up to a year old and teenage boys are more prone to developing dandruff than other age groups.

Adults are affected, as well, with it being more common in men. Among adults those of middle age and the elderly are most affected. Things that can trigger it include a weakened immune system, Parkinson’s disease, high levels of stress and AIDS.

One of the most important things that can be done to keep this skin condition under control is to take good care of yourself. You need to make sure that your, or your baby’s, hygiene is top notch. Products that contain selenium sulfide or tea tree oil can be used to fight it off. This often comes in shampoo form in products like T-Gel, Tegrin or Selsun. If it appears on your face then you need to wash it with fresh clean water on a daily basis. If your beard is affected then you should shave the area clean. Doctors can prescribe stronger treatments usually in the form of medicated shampoos. Antifungal drugs may also be prescribed.

Make sure that, above all else, you take good care of yourself. Get plenty of sleep, exercise as often as possible and eat foods that are good for you. Try to get outside in the natural sunlight whenever you can but be sure to wear an appropriate sunblock to avoid unwanted affects.
