Summary
Seborrheic dermatitis is a common, chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by scaling, oily scales and faint erythematous patches. It may be associated with itching and primarily affects areas rich in sebum, such as the scalp, face, upper chest and back. Seborrheic dermatitis is a recurrent dermatosis that affects 3-5% of the general population. This disease affects both children and adults, regardless of gender. The primary cause of the disease is unknown. The proliferation of Malassezia yeast and the immune response of the host are considered predisposing factors. The disease cannot be completely cured, so any therapy is aimed at reducing the remission of dermatosis. There is no radical, unique and permanently effective clinical method of treatment of seborrheic dermatitis. There are many pharmacological preparations and natural substances supporting the pharmacological treatment of seborrheic dermatitis. Psychological therapies and a proper diet are also recommended to support basic treatment.
