Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is a recurrent type of eczema that can be characterised as red scaly lesions that typically develop on both the scalp and face. This is a highly common form of dermatitis that is sometimes seen to be associated with psoriasis, and is seen to occur in two different forms. Infantile Seborrhoeic Dermatitis affects infants under the age of 3 months old, while adult Seborrhoeic Dermatitis tends to develop within late adolescence.
