Scalp Eczema

Scalp Eczema.

Among other things eczema scalp breakouts can be an unsightly problem. Your scalp has more sebaceous glands than other parts of the body. This actually makes it more at risk from eczema than other areas of the body. Eczema of the scalp belongs to the seborrheic dermatitis group.

Eczema commonly affects the areas of the body that have more oil such as the scalp. It can also affect the eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and parts of the eyelids. People can have trouble with acne in these areas as well, at least at certain stages in their lives.

Seborrheic eczema scalp disorder is a type of inflammation of the skin, the cause of which is currently unknown. Common symptoms are scaly, yellow, oily areas of the scalp, skin, and face. This can also occur on various other sections of your body.

Babies commonly have what is called cradle cap, this is a version of seborrheic eczema scalp disorder. Dandruff can also be a type of this problem. Itching can occur but is not necessarily a symptom.

Eczema scalp condition can be caused by stress, not shampooing enough, oily scalp, and even the weather. Hot weather that leads to you sweating a lot can bring on eczema of the scalp.

Common treatments for this type of eczema are medicated shampoos used at least twice times a week. These shampoos contain such things as selenium sulfide, ketoconazole, coal tar, salicylic acid and zinc pyrithione.

Treating the scalp with steroids will help if the scalp is itching but be aware of side effects. These are usually applied on the daily basis for several days throughout the day.

Tar cream is good for taking off scales and it is removed by shampooing the hair and the scalp.

In the event that the scalp is scaling badly you may be prescribed an ointment to help. This is best left in several hours overnight then shampooed out using a good shampoo containing tar. The hair may need moisturizing after using these shampoos but stay away from heavy conditioners.

Dealing with this problem can be an ongoing battle as it can return in between treatments. You will have to consult your doctor about how to deal with scalp eczema on a long-term basis.

With the right kind of treatment eczema on the scalp will not necessarily spread to other areas of the body. If it does spread to other parts of the body other medications may be prescribed to help control it.

Just remember that early attention to the eczema scalp condition can help control it faster. Consult with your physician at the first symptoms. Whether you need just a special shampoo or an ointment it is reassuring to know that there are ways to treat scalp eczema.
