Top Rated Homeopathic Medicines for Seborrheic Dermatitis

What is seborrheic dermatitis?

Seborrheic dermatitis is a non-contagious skin disorder majorly affecting the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis is characterised by red, inflamed skin covered by flaky, dry or greasy scales on the scalp. In addition to the scalp, the face, area behind the ears, eyelashes, chest and back may also be involved. It is also called as seborrheic eczema. In infants, seborrheic dermatitis it is known by the name of cradle cap. It is a long term condition and runs a remitting and relapsing course. Dandruff is a type of seborrheic dermatitis with flakes or scales on the scalp, but without inflammation of skin.

Cause of seborrheic dermatitis

The exact cause of seborrhoeic dermatitis is not known. Irritation by toxic substances produced by a type of yeast called mallasezia, mainly mallasezia globose, found on the scalp is said to cause seborrhoeic dermatitis. Genetic predisposition, weak immune system, obesity, oily/greasy skin are other factors that could lead to seborrhoeic dermatitis. Change of season, sleep deprivation and stress make the condition worse.

Symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis

The first noticeable symptom of seborrheic dermatitis is inflamed, flaky skin on the scalp. Inspite of the flakes, the skin on the scalp remains greasy. Itching and burning on scalp may attend the flakes. The flakes vary from yellow, to white to greyish in colour. In addition to the scalp, the face, chest and back may get involved in seborrheic dermatitis.

Homeopathic treatment of seborrheic dermatitis

Homeopathic medicines work wonderfully well in treating seborrheic dermatitis. They treat both acute and chronic seborrheic dermatitis effectively. To start with, Homeopathic medicines reduce the intensity and frequency of flare-up of seborrheic dermatitis. In time, the condition is treated. Also, Homeopathic medicines boost the self-healing mechanism of the body, thus making it strong enough to fight seborrheic dermatitis on its own. Kali Sulphuricum, Thuja Occidentalis, Graphites Naturalis, Natrum Muriaticum and Phosphorus are rated among the best prescriptions for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis.

    I have been suffering of facial seborehic dermatitis for past obe year.I have tried so many allopathic lotions and creams.but no cure.please help me.I am dying everyday with the burning and itchy eczima with flakes and flare up.

  31. Hello I have had a history of skin disorders but recently I believe because of excessive washing my scalp has begun to become quite itchy but also somewhat greasy with hair loss
    I also dye my hair and the last treatment left scabs on my scalp
    I have exceptionally dry skin but I eat well, exercise, have a low bmi and am 67 with glaucoma, osteoporosis and rather significant levels of heavy metals (lead, cadmium, aluminum, ) and have been treating on and off over the last few years
    I also have tinnitus but a recent ENT said that the noise I hear si not common as I only hear the sound of my blood rushing at the same rate as my heart
    So even though I think I am healthy an have lots of energy this certainly is a collection of symptoms which would suggest other wise
    Do you prescribe from a distance? I live in LOs Angeles
