Summary of Seborrhoeic dermatitis
Seborrheic dermatitis is an intermittent papulous skin condition which is thought to be due to decreased helper T cell function. Active periods are usually during winter and early spring. In infants seborrheic dermatitis is called cradle cap. Dandruff is a type of seborrhoeic dermatitis where inflammation is not present. The topical antifungal medications ketoconazole and ciclopirox are both effective for the condition.
