Seborrheic Dermatitis:

Seborrheic dermatitis (SD) is a highly prevalent, chronic, relapsing inflammatory dermal condition. The disease is predominant in male population compared with females.

Certain other factors such as summers and rain season, emotional stress and zinc deficiency in acrodermatitis-like conditions may act as triggers for SD. Seborrheic dermatitis commonly occurs in areas where there is excess sebum production, such as the scalp, hairline, eyebrow, glabella, nasolabial folds, ears, upper chest, back, axillae, umbilicus and groin regions.

Treatment Strategies:

Treatment for SD mainly includes topical antifungal, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agents. Other treatment options are keratolytics, antibiotics, tar and phototherapy. Severe case and cases not responding to topical drugs are treated with systemic regimen.
