Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, Cause Manifestation and Homeopathic Management

This video is about Seborrhoeic Dermatitis Homeopathic Cure by Dr.Ravi Singh.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis (SD) is a common, benign scaling rash. It is named dermatitis because it involves inflammation of the skin and seborrhoeic because it affects areas rich in sebaceous glands. Therefore, it is most common on the face, scalp and chest. It can affect any age from puberty onwards. It occurs in babies in a form known as infantile seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Aetiology and Pathophysiology.
The exact cause of seborrhoeic dermatitis is unknown.Symptoms may be aggravated by illness, psychological stress, fatigue, change of season, poor immune function (eg, HIV) and certain medications).Stress causes more sebum production and less excretion.Stress causes more histamine productions and histamine causes vascular perforations. Hence more stress leads to more histamine and ultimately sebum production increases, which results in deposition in forms of flakes, crust.
SD presents as inflamed, greasy areas with fine scaling.
he affected areas are:

The nasolabial folds.
Over the bridge of the nose.
The eyelashes/eyebrows. This may present as blepharitis.
The ear – particularly behind the ear in the skin folds. It may also cause itching of the ear canal.
Over scalp there is an associated fine scaling to produce the ‘dandruff’ (fine flaking seen on the scalp and in the hair).

There may be ill-defined dry pink patches with yellowish or white bran-like scale. It may affect the entire scalp. This may cause pruritus.

Differential diagnoses (by area)
These include:

On the face

Rosacea: this is not scaly, spares the nasolabial fold and consists of papules and pustules on an erythematous base situated on the cheeks, chin, tip of the nose and forehead.
Systemic lupus erythematosus: this has a butterfly distribution of typical rash on the cheeks.

On the scalp

Psoriasis (of the scalp, face or chest): this may look similar to, or may overlap with, SD. This overlap condition is called sebopsoriasis.
Infected eczema.
Tinea capitis.
On the torso

Atopic eczema: this typically affects the antecubital and popliteal fossae.
Contact dermatitis.
Pityriasis rosea: there is presence of a herald patch; it is more widely distributed usually.
Pityriasis versicolor.
Lichen simplex.
As said earlier trying to cure this disease by any of the external application including antidandruff or antifungal shampoo is fruitless in long run.
Staying away from anxiety and clasiical homeopathy has blessed many chronic cases.
We are at our centre providing the treatment of such disorder with classical homeopathy.
This particular case has approached to us after trying all sorts of local application and had visited many dermatologist in vain. Some Dematologist has even honestly said to him that this will not be cured for lifetime but can only be managed.
We have treated him with drug transmission and he is almost cured.
He has started getting relief from very first month of treatment.
