Seborrheic Dermatitis

A common skin condition that causes a scaly rash on oily areas of the body like the face and scalp.

What is it?

Seborrheic Dermatitis is a prevalent skin disorder identified by red, scaly, itchy, and flaky skin, mainly on the scalp, but it can also impact other oil-rich areas of the body including the face, chest, and back. This chronic condition's exact origin remains unknown, though it's speculated to be tied to a yeast named Malassezia present on the skin or an inflammatory reaction related to the skin's oil production. The symptoms frequently vary in intensity and may even vanish, only to reappear later. While the condition is generally not harmful, it can be bothersome and may trigger self-awareness or embarrassment.


While there's no absolute cure for Seborrheic Dermatitis, our dermatologists in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio, can devise a treatment strategy to control and reduce the symptoms. Regular check-ups can assist in tracking the progress and efficiency of treatments, which may encompass topical antifungals, corticosteroid creams, lotions, or shampoos. Lifestyle modifications like stress reduction and a thorough skincare routine can also aid in managing outbreaks. Our dermatologists can offer specific advice tailored to your skin type and condition severity, thereby enhancing your quality of life and aiding you to feel more at ease and self-assured in your skin.


How is it treated?

Identifying the source of skin irritation or swelling is essential for effective management. To alleviate swelling and discomfort, consider applying a cool, damp cloth to the affected area. If the rash persists, don't hesitate to reach out to schedule an appointment at our Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, or Strongsville, Ohio offices. Our team offers various in-office treatment options, including topical corticosteroid creams or, in severe cases, corticosteroid oral medications, to tailor tretaments to your specific skin care needs.
