Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic form of skin eczema. It appears in areas of the body with more sebaceous glands (producing sebum) in the so-called seborrheic zones. The scalp is most often affected, but it can appear in and around the ears, on the eyebrows, around the nose, on the back, on the chest, etc.


Seborrheic eczema has relatively clear clinical symptoms:

  • Red spots (plaques) that peel;
  • The skin in the affected area is oily;
  • The skin in the affected area is red;
  • The rash is accompanied by itching.


Symptoms are often worsened by a variety of factors, including stress, change in seasons, alcohol use, and more.


The causes of seborrheic dermatitis are not fully understood. The risk increases with a positive family history. Other factors that increase the risk are:

  • Overweight;
  • Fatigue;
  • Improper skin care;
  • Stress;
  • Environmental factors - pollution, etc.;
  • Presence of other skin problems - acne, etc.;
  • Some diseases of a general nature - stroke, HIV , Parkinson's disease, etc.


If you suspect the presence of seborrheic dermatitis or other recurring skin problems, it is recommended to consult your dermatologist.
