What is Seborrheic Eczema?
Seborrheic eczema, also known as seborrheic dermatitis, is a scaly skin rash caused by excessive sebum production, leading to itching and redness. It occurs in areas with many sebaceous glands, such as the scalp, and can cause a variety of symptoms, from dandruff to a rash in the affected area.
Causes of Seborrheic Eczema
The main cause of seborrheic dermatitis is the fungus Malassezia furfur. This fungus prefers areas with higher fat content and feeds on dead skin. It is important to note that psychological factors can also have a negative impact on the pathological changes in the skin.
