This is a very common skin disease of the face, scalp, ears and chest.
In the affected areas, the skin tends to have a:
Swollen and greasy appearance.
White or yellowish crusty scale on the surface.
One or more of these rashes can appear on the body. Sometimes, the affected skin itches.
Seborrheic dermatitis can look like psoriasis, eczema, or a skin allergy.
When an adult gets seborrheic dermatitis, the condition can come and go for the rest of the person’s life. Flare-ups are common when the weather turns cold and dry. Stress also can trigger a flare-up. The good news is that treatment can reduce flare-ups and bring relief.
