Homeopathy Medicine for Seborrheic Dermititis

157

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common, chronic, superficial skin condition that mainly affects the sebaceous cysts that are already present in the skin and results in scaly, itchy, red skin on the scalp, face, upper chest, back, and other oily areas of the body.

With the exception of our palms and soles, almost all of our skin is covered with sebaceous glands, which secrete sebum, an oily substance made up of dead fat-producing cells and fat.

Sebum production appears to be higher in individuals with this condition.

SYMPTOMS OF SEBORRHEIC DERMITITIS

  • Scalp crusting that is thick and patchy
  • Plaques can be made from the forehead, nose, ears, eyebrows, or scalp.
  • The breastbone, the groin, and the armpits may occasionally be affected.
  • Scales adhere to the hair’s body and can be white or yellowish.
  • scales that are white or yellowish and have greasy, red skin.
  • Skin flakes or dandruff
  • Skin bumps that are tiny and red-brown
  • Itch or soreness
  • Hair loss is a very persistent symptom of sebaceous gland inflammation that frequently occurs in these cases.
  • Seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff are believed to be closely related, though dandruff is less severe.

CAUSES OF SEBORRHEIC DERMITITIS

A combination of excessive skin oil production and irritation from a yeast called malessizia is thought to be the cause of seborrheic dermatitis.

Malessizia furfur, a naturally occurring yeast that lives on the skin’s surface, has been linked in recent studies to seborrheic dermatitis (4–8). However, other researchers believe that seborrheic dermatitis is an inherited primary inflammatory process, and that malessizia furfur only serves to aggravate the condition secondary to other factors.

Malessizia furfur infections have a negative effect on seborrheic dermatitis sufferers, who develop red, irritated, flaky, and itchy skin.
