alex (I-Newswire) September 28, 2013 - Scalp eczema is one of the skin conditions whose persistent re occurrence owes much to the fact that we either fail to identify it or do not consider it a serious enough medical condition to contain it in a timely manner. In fact it is a form of eczema deserving constant scrutiny and continuous treatment.Scalp dermatitis or seborrheic scalp eczema is an inflammation of the skin on the scalp which may result not only in acute itching and redness, but also typically ends up in flaky skin and sometimes even discoloration of the scalp. It's severity in some cases may need immediate medical attention or else it could result in acute hair loss and discomfort.
Seborrheic dermatitis or scalp eczema is found in almost 3% of the population and affect mostly women in the menopausal phase, boys nearing puberty and also babies. The symptoms typically begins with red spots that turn yellow specially in the skin having the presence of sebaceous glands, and if unchecked actually may spread over the armpits, nose , hairline , ears, shoulders and even the chest.Dandruff or Pityriasis is another consequence of scalp eczema. Apart from the lose falling flakes of the skin of the scalp, the embarrassing discomfort and itching usually is a result of a prevailing infection of the scalp associated with the presence of fungus Malassezia. When this form of yeast grows very fast it inhibits the growth and renewal of skin cells which soon turn dry and create a layer of dead cells which further triggers itchiness.
Associated causes could be many but scalp eczema has been known to be higher among people with lower immunity, genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, dietary dis balance, over medication and poor scalp health. Sometimes its symptoms can get so extreme that it may be seen even on the eyebrows. While scalp eczema can mainly be treated with ointments and medicated shampoos, maintaining scalp hygiene is of critical importance.
Scalp eczema is also known to be triggered by another auto immune disorder called psoriasis which occurs due to the uninhibited spread of a fungal infection usually resulting in flaky scalp and eventually even hair loss. Since the factors known to bring about the condition are many, a careful examination of what triggers an outbreak or the beginnings of the inflammation must be studied and addressed on the basis of a clinical analysis. A combination of medications may be taken depending on the triggers.Natural remedies also may be considered, provided a thorough medical examination with necessary tests have been carried out. Scalp eczema, while not a serious or debilitating skin condition may spread and cause permanent damage to the skin of the scalp with scarring and related hair loss. Timely action is necessary to arrest its spread.
