You may be able to control seborrheic dermatitis with lifestyle changes and home remedies. Many of these are available in over-the-counter (nonprescription) forms. You may need to try different products or a combination of products before your condition improves. Try over-the-counter anti-dandruff products, such as: Shampoo with pyrithione zinc or selenium daily, Shampoo with the antifungal ketoconazole, used twice weekly, alternating with your daily shampoo likeTar shampoo.. Salicylic acid shampoo...consult dermatologist if no improvements
