Seborrheic dermatitis (think dandruff), also known as seborrhea, is a common non-contagious condition of skin areas rich in oil glands (the face, scalp, and upper trunk). Seborrheic dermatitis is marked by flaking (overproduction of skin cells) and sometimes redness and itching (inflammation) of the skin, and it varies in severity from mild dandruff of the scalp to scaly, red patches on the skin. The normal skin yeast, Pityrosporum ovale, lives in oil-rich skin regions and plays a role in this disorder. Seborrheic dermatitis seems to worsen with stress, winter, and infrequent shampooing. Although there is no "cure" for seborrheic dermatitis, control is usually possible with medicated shampoos. Severe seborrheic dermatitis is seen frequently in people with Parkinson disease, and other with central nervous system problems, and in those with HIV infection.
