If you suffer from seborrhoeic dermatitis, it’s important to keep your scalp in good condition as part of your treatment
It’s caused by the same factors as dandruff:
- A naturally occurring microbe, Malassezia globosa
- Scalp oils, known as sebum
- A scalp that’s sensitive to oleic acid

Keep your scalp healthy
Seborrhoeic dermatitis damages the scalps outer layer of skin, so you need to keep your scalp healthy to help repair the damage.
It also relies on scalp oils in order to feed the Malassezia so try to use a clarifying shampoo regularly that removes oil to leave your hair feeling soft and clean.
