Seborrheic Dermatitis causes redness and greasy-looking “scales” on the skin.
The areas of the skin with a high concentration of oil glands tend to be the most affected, like the scalp, sides of the nose, eyebrows, eyelids, behind the ears and the middle of the chest.
Occasionally other areas can also be affected, such as the navel, breasts, buttocks and skin folds under the arms.
Seborrheic Dermatitis can be treated successfully with topical medication, including low-strength cortisone preparations prescribed by your doctor. Frequent shampooing and washing also help the condition.
