Seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff

Seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff can be umbrellaed under the same spectrum of disease, which affects seborrheic areas of the body.
These two conditions share many characteristics and respond similarly to treatments.
There are several environmental and intrinsic factors that contribute to its pathogenesis: colonization by the Malassezia fungus, the patient’s epidermal conditions, sebaceous secretion, the immune response and the interactions between all these factors.
Effective management of Seborrheic Dermatitis and dandruff requires eliminating the symptoms with anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal treatment, leading to a decrease in itchiness, whilst general intervention improves the immune response and skin/scalp health, resulting in remission and controlled maintenance.
Treatment with ozonated oils may be the ideal response, due to its anti-inflammatory activity, and potent antimicrobial properties, with recognized action on various fungi (including Malassezia ).
