What is seborrheic dermatitis?
Seborrheic dermatitis is a type of skin condition that is relatively common. Many people present with a dandruff form of seborrheic dermatitis. The dandruff version is also called pityriasis capitis. Dandruff is essentially an uncomplicated, uninflamed form of seborrheic dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis affects the skin in areas of the body that have sebaceous (fatty) glands. It can be found on the chest, face, upper back, neck, and scalp. This skin condition often starts on the scalp and then moves into other regions. It’s not a fatal skin condition, but it can be quite unsightly, uncomfortable, and distressing.
