Seborrheic Dermatitis – Most well known as “cradle-cap” in babies, seborrheic dermatitis is common in older children and adults too. It is most common on the scalp, but also can affect the face, chest, neck, back, and groin. Yellow greasy scale on the scalp is typical in infants and resolves with time. In older children and adults with seborrheic dermatitis, the scale is often drier and itchy.
Seborrheic dermatitis can wax and wane in severity, but is typically easily treated with topical medications.
