What Causes Seborrheic Dermatitis?
New evidence points to fungal growth that is similar to that of athletes foot or jock itch. It can be persisten on its own or it can have a few things that seems to set it off or trigger the condition but one common point observed is usually due to the overproduction of oil (sebum) by your sebaceous glands.
The hair follicle has sebacceous glands that produce oils - places such as the beard and chest hair have large density of hair follicles and of couse the scalp. Each one of these hair follicles has a small but very adequateoil producing gland known as the sebaceous gland. It manufactures oil to protect your hair and skin from dryness and the environment as well as many other little bacteria and critters from the world we live it. It is often used as defense mechanism to protect the hair, root and follicle.
Here are some factors that can cause your sebacceous glands to release higer amounts of oils.
- Parkinson's Disease
- Neurological Conditions
- Infrequent Shampooing
- Poor immune system
the most recent discovery of Seborrheic Dermatitis is caused by a common fungus known as Pityrosporum ovale, part of the Malessezia Fur Fur family of fungus that is also the cause of dandruff. This fungus normally resides on our skin. This fungus usually feeds and thrives on skin oils and dead skin cells. The problem comes in when the fungus multiplies in numbers greater than the body can handle with its defenses.
Due to excessive amount of scalp sebum (oils) that is released it sets off a chain of events, A population overgrowth of the fungus leads to the body acting with an auto immune response which causes skin inflammation and scalp skin flaking. This theory was proven because certain anti dandruff shampoos that have anti fungal ingredients are effective in controlling dandruff.
