Hi,

Seborrheic dermatitis is a benign inflammatory skin disease characterised by greasy crusts and gradual hair loss. Exact cause is not known,but psychological upsets and depression might precipitate exacerbate the disease. You consult the dermatologist and psychiatrist as well. It is a controllable disease...so, continue treatment even after cure. It has tendency to relapse frequently. So, avoid worries and tension.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.
