Seborrheic Dermatitis and Cradle Cap
Seborrheic Dermatitis is sometimes mistaken for Psoriasis on the scalp.
Seborrheic Dermatitis also typically occurs around the eye area, side of the nose, mouth and around the ears. In severe cases it can extend down the trunk or back.
Seborrheic Dermatitis in babies is sometimes called Cradle Cap. It can occur on the scalp or face.
Itchy Face Or Scalp? Try scratching with a Hoof!
(Sometimes mistakingly confused with Psoriasis on the scalp, face or upper body.)
One of the other common forms of dermatitis often occurs around the scalp, hairline, ears, neck, around the eyes or along the side of the nose. In babies this can be called Cradle Cap.
For many people the cause may be a a reaction to the malassezia yeast. This organism is normally present on the skin in small numbers, but sometimes its numbers increase, resulting in skin problems. This is why the problem tends to occur on the oilier parts of the body. It results in red and scaly skin in affected areas.
Our Eczema and Psoriasis Cream (AUSTL196718) also includes ingredients for the symptomatic relief of Seborrheic Dermatitis. Another product we make for Seborrheic Dermatitis is our Scalp Cream (AUSTL196715). It is a more moisturising alternative. As well as symptomatic relief of Seborrheic Dermatitis, many people also enjoy this cream as a natural moisturiser. Both products are natural and suitable for babies through to adults, and can be used as often as needed. We show all ingredients on the website. Always read the label and if symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner.
This is my 7.5mth old gorgeous little boy Wil. From around 3mths his face has been raw, red, weeping and continuously dry & itchy. Thank god i stumbled across MooGoo. I initially bought the Eczema Balm. I noticed the redness subsiding so I also looked up a moisturiser and bought the MSM & the Body Wash. As you can see after about a week this is what he looks like! FANTASTIC. We still have a little way to go but from a new mum tearing her hair a HUGE THANK YOU. We are only using your products now and have recommended you to everyone i know.
