Healthy skin and hair becomes a reality with homeopathic treatment at HomeopathyOne.


Seborrhoeic dermatitis is chronic inflammation that causes yellow, greasy scales and dandruff to form on areas of the skin that have a high number of oil glands such as the scalp and face, along the hairline, around the ears, and occasionally on other areas.(See also Overview of Dermatitis.)

The cause of seborrhoeic dermatitis is unknown, but the number of Malassezia yeasts, an organism normally present on the skin, and a person’s reaction to them play some role. Seborrhoeic dermatitis occurs most often in infants, usually within the first 3 months of life, teens, and in those aged 30 to 70 years. The risk and severity of the disorder seems to be affected by genetic factors, often runs in families, and is worse in cold weather. Seborrhoeic dermatitis may be more common and more severe among people who have a neurologic disorder (especially Parkinson disease) and among people who have HIV/AIDS.

Our individuality or uniqueness as a person, is the reason why some people experience it more severely than others. Homeopathy values this uniqueness of yours.

Do you know …

Washing with mild cleanser can reduce the inflammation and seborrhoeic deposits on skin.

Applying greasy products like creams, oils, etcetera can worsen the seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Medical students are not really taught about the healing system. They are taught about disease—how to diagnose and how to treat, but they are not taught how the body goes about treating itself. They will point to the immune system and let it go at that. But healing involves not just killing off disease germs or viruses but the process of reconstruction and repair.

Causes of seborrhoeic dermatitis

Seborrhoeic dermatitis is caused by an interaction between hormones, skin oils, and micro-organism, which results in inflammation.

The skin contains many tiny hair follicles, or pores. Each pore contains a hair and a multi-lobed gland called a sebaceous gland which lie in the middle layer of skin (dermis) attached to the hair follicle. Sebaceous glands produce an oily substance called sebum, which normally travels up the pore to lubricate the hair and skin. Seborrhoeic dermatitis results when a collection of dried sebum and dead skin cells piles up supporting the growth of micro-organism producing inflammation.

  • Puberty – when the sebaceous glands are stimulated by increased hormone levels, especially the androgens (such as testosterone), resulting in excessive sebum production.
  • Genetic factors

Recurrent and severe seborrhoeic dermatitis can prevent people from doing what they usually enjoy and starts to affect the mind as well. They may become shy, depressed and anxious. They may stop their activities, withdraw socially, and become preoccupied with their appearance. The mind-body complex is now fully affected and becomes a vicious circle which keeps an individual in suffering mode.

Symptoms of seborrhoeic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis usually begins gradually, causing dry or greasy scaling of the scalp (dandruff), sometimes with itching but without hair loss. In more severe cases, yellowish to reddish scaly raised bumps appear along the hairline, behind the ears, on the eyebrows, in the folds of skin on the sides of the nose, and on the chest.

In infants younger than 1 month of age, seborrheic dermatitis may produce a thick, yellow, crusted scalp rash (cradle cap) and sometimes yellow scaling behind the ears and red pimples on the face. Frequently, a stubborn diaper rash accompanies the scalp rash.

Older children and adults may develop a thick, tenacious, scaly scalp rash with large flakes of skin.

Diagnosis of seborrhoeic dermatitis

A doctor’s thorough evaluation which includes physical; mental; emotional; social health and environmental influence. Through this evaluation doctors try to identify the causes, factors modifying it and the impact of it on the daily life quality of a person.

Doctors base the diagnosis of seborrheic dermatitis on the location and appearance of the affected skin.

Doctors ask how the person feels; eats; sleeps and goes through a routine day. Identifying these changes is critical because they can make the situation better or worse and, if present, must be treated for it to be treated effectively.

Homeopathic Treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis

After a thorough evaluation, each case is worked upon and a set of similar medicines is derived, from which one single medicine which fits the patient’s presentation at that time, in relevant intensity and repetitions is given.

Some need only one medicine throughout the duration of treatment and some need few in sequence one after another across the treatment.

Timely follow-ups are essential to keep moving forward towards the goal of treatment and to identify, manage and overcome any obstacles to the outcome.

This is the most important question. Our homeopaths work together with you as a team trying to achieve the same goal in a rapid, gentle, and permanent way. You and only you can assist in improving the outcomes of your treatment by keeping in mind the following points:

  • Timely taking your medicine as per the guidelines provided.
  • Schedule follow-ups on time, as they are essential to keep moving forward toward our goal.
  • Help doctors/homeopaths identify any obstacles to the outcome by freely sharing the details thoroughly and pre-emptively.
  • Filling the assessment forms at required intervals.
  • If any new or old symptom appears, inform your doctor/homeopath, before doing anything on your own and follow the guidance given by them.
  • Not taking medicines on your own, as these interfere (slows down) and hampers (suppress) the process that is happening within your system for becoming healthy.
  • If any tests are required, get them done.
  • Not stopping any medicines on your own without your doctor/homeopath's advice - be it conventional or alternative.
  • Sharing if any other therapies or modalities are being utilized by you. Some ingredients may have interactions and consequences with your ongoing treatment without you realizing it.

You, and the whole of you, are the only reason why you experience the disease differently from others.

It is

  • your genetic predisposition and
  • your unique response system

These are constantly evolving as you grow through life. They are constituted and modified by

  • your upbringing and
  • your experience of different life situations around you

Technically the way you are wired and the way you learn and change through life is what makes you unique. This is the main reason why people experience diseases differently.

Homeopathy values this uniqueness of yours, and therefore there are no medicines for disease conditions but for the person who is experiencing those disease conditions. This is the basic reason that allows a homeopath to prescribe a single medicine at a given time, even for multiple disease conditions.
