Doctor Answers (8) on Seborrheic Dermatitis
The sebaceous glands are present nearly everywhere in our skin except on the palms and soles. These glands secrete an oily substance (sebum) which consists of fat, and dead fat-producing cells.
People with this condition seem to have increased production of sebum.
Common symptoms of this disorder are:
Patchy scaling and thick crusts on scalp Plaques may include the scalp, eyebrows, nose, forehead, or ears.
Scales may be white or yellowish and attach themselves to the body of the hair Greasy, red skin with white or yellowish, flaky scales. Skin flakes or dandruff Small red-brown bumps on skin.Itch or soreness
Hair loss: this occurs in very long-standing cases having repeated inflammations of the sebaceous gland.
Dandruff is thought to be closely related to seborrheic dermatitis, but is less severe.
All the symptoms need not occur in the same person. Also, symptoms vary in their severity. Many a times, the symptoms improve while at other times they seem to remain the same or may increase in severity.
