What is Seborrheic Dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that affects millions worldwide, causing redness, itching, and flakiness primarily on the scalp but also on oily areas like the face and chest. Understanding its causes, symptoms, and treatment options is crucial for managing this condition effectively.At AlloRoots Hair Restoration, we understand the challenges and frustrations that come with managing this condition, which is why we’re dedicated to providing you with valuable information and resources to help you effectively manage seborrheic dermatitis.

Causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis:

  1. Malassezia Overgrowth: An overgrowth of the yeast Malassezia on the skin’s surface can trigger inflammation, leading to seborrheic dermatitis.
  2. Genetic Predisposition: Family history plays a role, with genetics influencing susceptibility to the condition.
  3. Hormonal Changes: Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as during puberty or pregnancy, can contribute to flare-ups.
  4. Environmental Factors: Cold, dry weather or excessive heat and humidity can exacerbate symptoms.
