Seborrhoeic dermatitis is characterized by a red, greasy, scaly rash that is usually found on the face, especially around the nose, forehead, chin and in the eyebrows.
Other common sites include the armpit, groin and the skin over the breast bone (sternum) in the middle of the chest.
While the precise cause of Seborrhoeic dermatitis is not known for sure, it often seems to be related to an overgrowth of the yeast organism Candida Albicans in the system. If the rash is itchy, then this is a bit of a clue that Candida may be the underlying factor.
Taking a B-complex supplement each day can sometimes benefit seborrheic dermatitis. Another useful natural approach is vitamin B6 cream (10mg of B6 per gram of cream). One study showed that B6 cram could be quite effective in controlling seborrhoeic dermatitis.
