Good night. I want to ask. I have a skin disease called seborrheic dermatitis. From my family, only I suffer from this disease. And from the internet site that I read he said this skin disease is decreasing. My question is, is it true that this skin disease can be passed down to the next generation? thank you

Hello Grace, thank you for the question.


Seborrheic dermatitis (DS) is a skin disease that can occur in infants and adults, generally attacks oily areas, such as the scalp, face, neck, etc. DS is associated with an increase in sebum production. Symptoms that appear can be reddish skin, dandruff, and brownish yellow scaly. DS can be caused due to excessive sebum production, fungal, bacterial infections, or both, and individual susceptibility. Some factors that cause a person to be at risk for DS include environmental factors, low and dry temperatures, genetic factors, age, sex, stress, and health conditions.


One factor that can increase a person affected by DS is heredity / genetic factors, but not necessarily all people who have parents with a history of DS will definitely have DS, this depends on the vulnerability of the individual's body, nutritional conditions, environmental factors, and health conditions individual. Children from parents who have a history of DS have a greater risk for developing DS than children from parents who do not have a history of DS. Therefore, to prevent DS in children with parents with a history of DS, it is always best to control risk factors such as keeping skin moist, maintaining bodily hygiene, maintaining healthy conditions, engaging in healthy lifestyles, eating nutritious foods, fulfilling fluid needs, getting enough rest , and regular exercise. Some additional information about DS can be read here.


Thank you.
