SEBORRHOEA

SEBORRHOEA Treatment and Care

 

SEBORRHOEA Treatment and Care
Seborrhea is an inflammatory scaling disease of the scalp, face, and occasionally other area of the body. The disease usually appears only as dry or greasy scaling with variable itching. Yellow – red, scaling elevations of the skin appear along the hairline, behind the ears, inside the ears, on the eyebrows, on the bridge of the nose and the folds alongside it and over the chest.

  • Shampoo often. Wash your hair daily if necessary.
  • Use a mild, non medicated shampoo rather than something strong, which can over dry the hair.
  • If regular shampoo does not work, then switch to one of the tar based shampoos.
  • Lather twice when you use a dandruff shampoo, then rinse very thoroughly.
  • Use a massaging motion on your scalp to help loosen the scales but don’t scratch with your fingernails, use fingertips only.
  • Use a warm –oil treatment once a week. You will find this treatment beneficial and it will help to loosen and soften the scales.
  • Expose your head to sunshine. Direct ultraviolet light can be beneficial.
  • Avoid chocolate, dairy products, fried foods, seafood and nuts as they may all contribute to overproduction of oil glands.
  • Keep the skin clean, but do not over cleanse. Avoid harsh cleansers. If you must use make – up, avoid oil based products.
