Seborrheic dermatitis consultation in New York City

In infants, seborrheic dermatitis is called cradle cap. Cradle cap usually resolves on its own within the first year of life. In older individuals, seborrheic dermatitis may occur more commonly in hospitalized patients, those in nursing homes, and those with nervous system or immune system diseases.

Gentle shampooing with a mild product can be helpful for children with cradle cap. Seborrheic dermatitis in adults is treated with a topical anti-fungal or steroid creams in addition to medicated shampoos. When seborrheic dermatitis overlaps with scalp psoriasis, excimer narrowband UVB can be a helpful adjunct to topical therapy.
