Seborrhoeic dermatitis is a common non-contagious skin condition affecting millions of people. It is a papulosquamous disorder that affects the sebum-rich areas of the scalp, face and trunk.
Its exact cause is unknown, though cases are often attributed to the overproduction of sebum in the sebaceous glands, the presence of topical organisms such as Malassezia yeasts (formerly known as pityrosporum ovale) and inflammatory or immunologic abnormalities.
Manifestations of SD skin lesions include:
•Patchy scaling or thick crusts on the scalp
•Yellow or white scales that attach to the hair shaft
•Red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales
•Itching or soreness
•Skin flakes or dandruff
