CARE

  FOR YOUR SKIN

Seborrheic Dermatitis

This is a very common skin disease that causes a rash. The skin tends to have a reddish color, swollen and greasy appearance, or white or yellowish crusty scale on the surface.  One or more of these rashes can appear on the body. Sometimes, the affected skin itches.
 
This condition can come and go for a person’s entire life. Flares are common when the weather turns cold and dry. Stress also can trigger a flare-up. The good news is that treatment can reduce flares and bring relief.
 
Although treatment cannot cure Seborrheic Dermatitis, treatment has benefits. Treatment can loosen and remove scale, prevent a skin infection, and reduce swelling and itching.  The type of treatment a dermatologist prescribes varies with age and where the Seborrheic Dermatitis appears on the skin.
