Homeopathic Medicines for Seborrheic Dermatitis

Homeopathy works wonderfully well in treating seborrheic dermatitis. These medicines treat both acute and chronic seborrheic dermatitis effectively. To start with, homeopathy medicines reduce the intensity and frequency of flare-up of seborrheic dermatitis. In time, the condition is treated. Also, these 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.

1. Kali Sulphuricum – For Seborrheic Dermatitis with Yellow Scales

Kali Sulphuricum is a top grade medicine for treating seborrheic dermatitis. It works wonders in seborrheic dermatitis cases with prominent yellow flakes on the scalp. The scales are sticky in nature, with a moist scalp. It is attended with itching. Heat worsens the itching in some cases.

2. Thuja Occidentalis – For White Flakes on Scalp

Thuja Occidentalis is a well indicated medicine for seborrheic dermatitis with white flakes on the scalp. The hair may be dry in such cases. In a few cases, split ends and falling of hair may be noted.

3. Graphites Naturalis – For Scales and Intense Itching

Graphites Naturalis is an effective medicine for seborrheic dermatitis where the scales on the scalp are accompanied by intense itching. The scales reduce after washing but reappear. A fetid odor on the scalp may also be observed. The scalp may also remain moist and humid. Matting together of the hair or falling of hair are also seen. Apart from the scalp, the scales may also be present on the eyelid margins and behind the ears.

4. Natrum Muriaticum – For Greasy Skin

Natrum Muriaticum most effectively treats seborrheic dermatitis with a greasy, oily scalp with redness and flakiness. The scalp is covered with white scurfs. Burning sensation on the scalp may also be present. The face is oily, with redness. Acne on the face may also be present along with the above symptoms.

5. Phosphorus – For Flakiness and Excessive Hairfall

For seborrheic dermatitis cases where flakiness on the scalp is attended with excessive hair fall, Phosphorus is an excellent prescription. The hair fall in bunches. In some cases, the hair may fall off in spots. This may be accompanied by a severe burning sensation on the scalp. In a few cases, clammy sweat on the scalp may also be present.

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. In spite of the flakes, the skin on the scalp remains greasy. Itching and burning on the scalp may attend the flakes. The flakes vary from yellow, to white to greyish in color. In addition to the scalp, the face, chest, and back may get involved in seborrheic dermatitis.

  17. seborrheic dermatitis in last 2 years

  18. I have had chronic seborrheic dermatitis for maybe 8 years. I have a history of eczema on one forearm when I was a teenager. This scalp dermatitis has been a real problem. I continually changed shampoos, The SD got so bad that I started researching on line for remedies. I have got it slightly under control with coconut oil scalp soaks. I ran across the thuja oil for skin tags and got to reading about what it can do, so I put it on my head in a few places that are real bad but it is not going to go far with this little bottle. I am going to try the Thuja shampoo. I have lost a tremendous amount of hair. If you have any solutions for me please help. It’s embarrassing to say the least and very stressful. I have to be careful with shampoos or I get these little sebaceous plugs that freak me out. $1 shampoos don’t seem to make these plugs happen. I am 64 yrs old.
