Seborrheic Dermatitis- Do You Need a Doctor?

Home Treatments Can Work Best For Scalp Dermatitis - Learn More Below!


Seborrheic dermatitis, a common scalp and skin condition, is not dangerous.  It is however uncomfortable, very itchy, and unattractive.  It is characterized by dandruff, thick crusty scales, greasy red skin, that is itchy and sore.  It most often affects people between 30 and 60 years old, and very young infants.  In infants it is known as cradle cap.   It is also more common in men than women. 


Usually seborrheic dermatitis can be dealt with successfully with at home seborrheic dermatitis  treatments.  There are many products available to treat this condition, but not all products are actually helpful.  Many contain harsh chemicals that tend to dry the scalp, often making it too dry.  The scalp requires a certain amount of oil to be healthy and over drying will only cause additional problems.  There are natural products that can both clean and regulate the oil on the scalp.  Zinc is a good ingredient that both cleans the scalp and works to regulate the oil from the sebum gland.  An all natural shampoo with zinc as an active ingredient is a good treatment to stop seborrheic dermatitis. 


There are however times when it might become necessary to see a doctor.  If the condition has become painful, or if you feel that the scalp skin is actually infected a doctor should be seen.  Also, if it becomes so uncomfortable that it is distracting from your normal life, and you have been unable to successfully treat yourself it may become important to have a doctor check it out.
