Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition in infants, adolescents, and adults. The characteristic symptoms-scaling, erythema, and itching-occur most often on the scalp, face, chest, back, axilla, and groin. Seborrheic dermatitis is a clinical diagnosis based on the location and appearance of the lesions. The skin changes are thought to result from an inflammatory response to a common skin organism, Malassezia yeast. Treatment with antifungal agents such as topical ketoconazole is the…

Topical Treatment of Facial Seborrheic Dermatitis: A Systematic Review

Promiseb®, desonide, mometasone furoate, and pimecrolimus were found to be effective topical treatments for facial SD, as they had the lowest recurrence rate, highest clearance rate, and the lowest severity scores (e.g., erythema, scaling, and pruritus), respectively.

Efficacy of SEBCLAIRA® Cream for Moderate Seborrhoeic Dermatitis on The Face as An Adjuvant Therapy (Randomised Clinical Trial, Double Blind)

Applicability of Trichoscopy in Scalp Seborrheic Dermatitis

Considering the merits and demerits of trichoscopic examination, it can be helpful to aid the diagnosis of SD.

Interventions for infantile seborrhoeic dermatitis (including cradle cap).

The risk of bias was assessed as unclear for most aspects due to lack of reporting, but two of the studies were at high risk of performance and detection bias due to the appearance of the intervention, the trial design (open-label), or use of overlabelled tubes.



Improving the management of seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Patients presenting with sudden onset severe seborrhoeic dermatitis should be screened for risk factors for HIV and should be referred in the following situations: diagnostic uncertainty - consider other differential diagnoses; failure to respond to first-line treatment after four weeks - consider secondary changes e.g. infection, flexural intertrigo, lichenification, otitis externa.

Medicated shampoos for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis.

Treatment for seborrheic dermatitis is aimed at yeast elimination and inflammation control and several treatment modalities are available, including shampoos, which contain both active ingredients related to antimycotic or anti-inflammatory effects and also surfactant ingredients that allow theseShampoos to replace regular shampoo in affected patients.

Findings suggest that high-potency corticosteroid shampoos may provide an important option for topical cortiosteroid therapy in dermatologic conditions affecting the scalp.

Pimecrolimus 1% cream for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis: a systematic review of randomized controlled trials

Pimecrolimus 1% cream appears to be a well-tolerated and effective treatment for seborrheic dermatitis and has comparable efficacy, in terms of decreasing severity of erythema, scaling and pruritus to the standard treatments: topical corticosteroids and antimycotics.

Treatment and prophylaxis of seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp with antipityrosporal 1% ciclopirox shampoo.

Sborrheic dermatitis of the scalp responds well to 1% ciclopirox shampoo once or twice weekly for 4 weeks and is maintained by once-weekly shampooing or shampooing once every 2 weeks.

A comprehensive pathophysiology of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis - towards a more precise definition of scalp health.

New biomolecular capabilities establish a depth of pathophysiological understanding not previously achievable with traditional means of investigation, and biomarkers representing inflammation, hyper-proliferation and barrier function are all perturbed by the D/SD condition and robustly respond to therapeutic resolution.
