That red, itchy rash on your scalp that has flaky scales could be seborrheic dermatitis, or seborrhea. It’s a common skin disease that looks similar to psoriasis, eczema, or an allergic reaction. And it can appear on your body as well as your scalp.
Who gets it?
Seborrheic keratosis is a skin condition that can be hereditary, with older people at higher risk. It’s also possible to develop these growths through frequent exposure to the sun.
Forefront dermatologists can determine the best possible course of action to treat seborrheic keratosis. These options include cryosurgery, which freezes the growth using liquid nitrogen, electrosurgery using an electrical current to scrape off the growth and curettage, which uses a scoop-like instrument to scrape off the growth. If you are interested in seborrheic keratosis treatment, the skin experts at Forefront Dermatology can develop a treatment plan that is safe, effective and personalized for your health needs and the condition of your skin.
