Scalp eczema, also called seborrheic eczema, starts with dandruff followed by red patches that may turn oily and yellow. In the presence of sebum, a naturally occurring fungus on the scalp could contribute to spread the symptoms, together with itching and a burning sensation.
This kind of dermatitis may last for anything between a couple of weeks up to several years. It mostly affects men age 18 to 40 as a chronic condition, but women are increasingly affected too. The condition usually covers the scalp, but it may also extend to the face and the body.
There is no miracle cure, but the right products will improve the condition in a significant way, and may even bring total relief.
WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
We recommend always consulting with a dermatologist first. Only he will be able to diagnose eczema or a seborrheic dermatitis. Above all, avoid any harsh products that may harm your scalp.
