Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea is a common skin disease that looks similar to psoriasis, eczema, or an allergic reaction. And it can appear on your body as well as your scalp.

Sometimes, seborrheic dermatitis will clear up by itself. More often, it's a lifelong issue that clears and flares. It can last for years at a time, but you can usually control it with good skin care.

Adults with seborrheic dermatitis on their scalp can use an over-the-counter dandruff shampoo that contains one of these key ingredients:

Coal tar
Salicylic acid
Selenium sulfide
Zinc pyrithione

Anonymous, consider consulting a dermatologist.
