What Causes Seborrheic Dermatitis?
One specific cause has not been found for seborrheic dermatitis. Many factors seem to play a role in the development of this skin condition. These may include genetics, cold and dry weather, yeast that lives on the skin, stress, and your overall health. It is not an allergic reaction, though it’s been found that certain cosmetic products may cause flare-ups, especially those high in perfume or fragrance.
Seborrheic dermatitis can develop in infants (cradle cap) as well as adults and can affect different body parts, such as the:
- Scalp (dandruff)
- Sides of the nose
- Around the mouth
- Genital area
