Seborrheic Dermatitis (not to be confused with Atopic Dermatitis) is that red, itchy rash that you can get on your scalp or face that develops flaky scales. It’s a common skin disease that often gets confused with similar skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema (atopic dermatitis), or even an allergic reaction. You can get it on your scalp or a number of other places on your body.
This skin condition comes about due to stress, genetics, a specific type of yeast that lives on your skin, certain medical conditions and prescription medicines, and also by changes in weather. We are only reminded of how much we take our skin for granted when we start experiencing problems with it.
