With change in seasons, human skin often shows some adjustments. It starts to produce more oil and may show some visible red, flaky, dry, and itchy patches. This can mean the person is dealing with Seborrhoea (a fungal skin disease wherein sebaceous glands whose ducts open at the hair roots secrete more oil upon which Malassezia yeast thrives).
What is Seborrheic dermatitis?
Seborrheic dermatitis is a common, lifetime skin condition that does not result in serious health issues but can flare up repeatedly and disappear by treatment. Most commonly, it occurs on the scalp but is also found on other body parts with overactive sebaceous glands such as around nostrils, inside or behind ears, back of neck, eyebrows, chest, belly button, in the bends of groins, legs, or arms, under breasts, and upper back. It is neither a contagious skin condition nor cancerous and can be easily managed.
On the scalp of youngsters and adults, it is referred to as “dandruff” while on the scalp of babies it is known as “cradle crap”. At Dadu Medical Centre, skin experts provide treatment for seborrheic dermatitis to help one get disease free skin.
