Can Seborrheic Dermatitis Affecting Scalp Affect Face?
I was just diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, even though my doctor looked at my scalp for one second at most.  From what I have read, it can affect the scalp, eyebrows, face, and chest, and it may be recurring. I am now using Head and Shoulders Intensive Treatment to treat my scalp, but could this condition eventually affect my face or chest?  I would hate having to deal with this where it would be visible to others.  If it could, is there any way I can prevent it?  Maybe by consistently washing my face and chest daily?  Thanks for any help.

Hello,
Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos and Head and shoulders is going to benefit you.

There is no preventive measure other than keeping your face clean by washing with water.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
