Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic, inflamed redness and scaling of the skin. It can involve the scalp and face. When this condition occurs in infants, it is sometimes called cradle cap. In adults, seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp is called dandruff.
Causes and risks
The cause of seborrheic dermatitis is not known. The skin of the scalp, and sometimes the face, becomes inflamed and flakes off.
It tends to run in families. Some individuals have an overgrowth of yeast organisms that is linked with this condition. Those with neurologic disorders, immunodeficiency disorders such as HIV, and extended hospital stays can have severe cases of seborrheic dermatitis.
Signs and symptoms
The skin changes seen in seborrheic dermatitis usually occur on the scalp and the face. The eyebrows, the skin folds from the side of the nose down to the corner of the mouth, and the ear canals are common sites on the face.
Symptoms may include:
- Red scalp and face
- Greasy white scales and sticky crusts
- Circular plaques with thick scales, particularly on the scalp
A healthcare professional will make a diagnosis of seborrheic dermatitis by examining the skin.
