Treatment of seborrhea in Bratislava

Seborrheic dermatitis is a dangerous dermatological disease that quickly turns from acute to a chronic form. A favorite place for localization of skin disease is the T-shaped zone of the nose and forehead, as well as the chin. Sometimes seborrhea affects the upper chest, abdomen, and back. The disease is more commonly diagnosed in older people (after 35 years), most often in older women and men.

Causes of seborrhea development 

Symptoms of seborrhea usually appear when certain areas of the skin begin to itch, flake off, and red spots appear. Traditional seborrhea penetrates the scalp very quickly. Sometimes red scaly spots appear on the earlobe.

Predisposition to seborrheic dermatitis is hereditary, but it is influenced by various factors of the external and internal environment. The main factors that cause the appearance of seborrhea include:

  • metabolic disorders;
  • exacerbation of chronic diseases;
  • decreased immunity;
  • hormonal disruptions, stress and depression.

Signs of seborrhea appear immediately after the lesion: areas of the skin begin to itch, peel off and become covered with red spots. Traditionally, seborrhea quickly spreads to the scalp and dandruff appears in the hair, which looks like a milk crust. Sometimes red spots appear even in the ear canal. If seborrhea is not treated, a bacterial or other infection in the body may occur against its background.

What are the types of seborrhea?

It is impossible to ignore seborrhea, it is better to immediately seek help from a dermatologist. The disease can take different forms, including:

  • oily seborrhea is the result of intensive work of the sebaceous glands. The reason for its development is often unbalanced diet, weight problems. After a while, dandruff appears, the skin becomes unhealthy;
  • dry seborrhea appears when there is insufficient sebum production. Visually, it resembles a fine rash looking like dust. Most often, dry seborrhea occurs on the scalp. It is characterized by hair loss and brittleness;
  • mixed seborrhea - symptoms of oily and dry seborrhea are present.

If the disease stage is too extensive, it is extremely difficult to cure seborrhea. In this case, a dermatologist relieves the symptoms of the disease and removes exacerbation. Usually, seborrhea appears against the background of pathologies of gastrointestinal tract, hormone imbalance and serious diseases. Therefore, the treatment is selected in a comprehensive manner, considering the disease history.
