Seborrhoeic dermatitis is a common inflammatory skin disorder that develops on the oil-rich areas of the scalp, face and trunk. Patients with this condition have scaly, flaky and itchy skin and/or white to yellowish scales that form in oily areas. It can occur with or without reddened skin.
In infants it is called a cradle cap when it affects the scalp. In adolescents and adults, seborrhoeic dermatitis usually presents as scalp scaling similar to dandruff or as mild to marked erythema of the nasolabial folds (the lines that run from either sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth).

In addition to sebum (the natural oil produced by your skin), this dermatitis is linked to the fungus Malasseziaand immunologic abnormalities.
