Oily Dandruff / Seborrhoeic Dermatitis

 


The skin of the scalp only differs from the rest of the body because of the abundance of large hair follicles, which are drained by the sebaceous glands. Indeed, one of the most common scalp problems is excess oil. If this disorder coincides with a flaking condition, the problem is worse, as that excess oil causes the flakes to appear yellow in color and remain attached to the scalp.

These symptoms are common to both oily dandruff problems and seborrhoeic dermatitis of the hair, but in reality, they are different conditions, which we can differentiate with the help of the following table.
