Dandruff? Stay away from this problem that is alarmed in winter

During the winter the skin becomes drier and more sensitive, so it requires special care. At this time of year, some skin conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis worsen. Also known as seborrhea, dandruff or eczema, it can be dry (dandruff) or oily (seborrhea). It is usually accompanied by a fungus, the Pityrosporum ovale.

It manifests itself in the form of red lesions that peel and scrunch discretely on the scalp, between the eyebrows, beard, nose fold, behind and inside the ears, chest and folds of the skin (armpits, groin and under the breasts) . In babies it is known as milk crust, a greasy plaque that adheres to the scalp but which may also appear in the region of the skin in contact with the nappies. Seborrheic dermatitis is not contagious.


The causes of seborrheic dermatitis are constitutional. It is known that hormonal changes, stress, dry climate, cold and abrupt changes in temperature aggravate the condition.


Reddened lesions with scaling and itching that may be more or less intense. In the scalp, this scaling can loosen and fall into small fragments, giving rise to what is popularly called dandruff.


There is no treatment for the definitive cure of seborrheic dermatitis, but there are specific medicines for the skin and scalp that can control the symptoms.

I love it.

* Those who have dandruff should wash their hair daily with shampoos based on ketoconazole, octopirox, zinc pyrithione, otherwise the condition may be aggravated;

* Avoid ingesting fatty foods;

* Do not take too hot baths. Rinse well before dressing. Humidity can be a triggering factor for injuries;

* Try to wear clothes that do not retain sweat. Synthetic Fabrics
Are usually contraindicated for those who are prone to seborrheic dermatitis;

* Try to control physical and mental stress. It is not easy, but it helps;

* Completely remove the shampoo and hair conditioner when washing the head;

* Spray mineral oil on the baby’s head before removing the crust. Change your diapers frequently. Mild contact of the diaper with the child’s skin may favor the appearance of rashes.
