Seborrheic Dermatitis


Seborrheic dermatitis manifests as dry flakes (dandruff) or greasy scaling of the scalp but, in more severe cases, it may involve yellow-red scaling along the hairlines, behind the ears, in the external auditory canals, on the eyebrows, in the axillae, on the nose, and over the sternum.
