How Is The Treatment Of Seborrheic Dermatitis In Pregnant Women?

Seborrheic dermatitis is a condition of skin condition that occurs in areas rich in oil glands such as the scalp, face, forehead, back, armpits, groin, and upper chest. Symptoms that can be experienced on the scalp is redness on the scalp that feels itchy, red, feels itchy, aches, or experiences bleeding in the scalp area due to skin peeling and scratching. A flaky scalp can look like dandruff that is piled up between the hairs.
Seborrheic dermatitis can be caused by fungal infections of Malassezia, but other causes such as infections due to bacterial colonization of the oil glands, or autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis can also cause similar complaints. The use of topical clobetasol propionate in the management of seborrheic dermatitis conditions has been noted to have category C in its use in pregnancy conditions. Category C indicates side effects in studies conducted in animals but there are not enough data for human studies.
In dealing with your condition, it is advisable to control your doctor for a check-up first, ensuring the medical condition that is experienced, so that optimal management can be done. Avoid using self-medication without consulting a doctor first. For more information on seborrheic dermatitis, you can access this link.
