Seborrheic Dermatitis: In most case can be controlled with a Sulphur-Salicylic cream.
What is it?
Seborrheic Dermatitis (SD) is one of the most frequent dermatitis and affects subject with acute psycho-physical stress.
It appears with redness and desquamation (scaling) especially in the middle of the face and in the hairline. Sometimes the scales are coated by an oily/sebaceous secretion form what it takes the name.
DS is not contagious and does not cause pain but, it is really bothersome aesthetically being in the most visible part of your body and because it causes itching especially on the scalp.
Causes are still unknown; therefore, many hypotheses arose in trying to find the culprits such as fungus, allergies, food intolerances and dis-microbiome of the intestine.
However, none of these theories have been proven but, due to the fact that it some cases it regresses on its own many people are strongly convinced that some of these theories are accurate.
Believing in unproven causes has led to illogical topical or systemic treatments with no effectiveness.
As often happens wrong treatments will cause more problems such as with the use of cortisone that will not cure the DS and will create dependency and other unwanted side effects, or in the case of dietary restrictions that will cause nourishing deficiencies.
Our effective treatment
MOST team has developed a cream with Sulphur and Salicylic Acid (MOST Crema 2S) with reducing action to keep DS under control. Crema 2S is an evanescent cream, non-oily and can be used also on the scalp. The combined properties of the two ingredients allows to eliminate the effects of DS without using any pharmaceutical or restrictive diets. A small amount of MOST Crema 2S should be applied before bed time on the affected areas and massaged until absorption until the symptoms of DS will disappear.
It is very important to know that:
If the patient has used cortisone as a treatment, it is advised to suspend the cortisone and undergo through the so called “rebound” and “withdraw” with the worsening of the DS before starting the new treatment with Crema 2S.
For the DS of the scalp it will be sufficient to apply the Crema 2S one or twice a week, preferably at night so that the cream can have a long period of time to work before washing the hair. Hair washing should be done with a mild shampoo that should be not massaged in the scalp to avoid irritation from the tensioactives.
MOST suggests the use of Dermictiol Shampoo, formulated with mild ingredients that will clean the hair and scalp without the typical dryness and irritation of common shampoos.
