What to do

It cannot be treated with cortisone because the skin gets into steroid dependance and worsens.

CREAM 2S should be used to treat seborrheic dermatitis on the body (face, trunk, skin folds) by rubbing well a small amount well into the affected areas once a day, preferably in the evening. CLEANSING CREAM should be used for washing.

In the case of seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp (dandruff), treatment depends on the severity of the condition. In the case of simple dandruff, use DERMICTIOL SHAMPOO to wash the hair without rubbing it into the scalp.

In the case of adherent scales and itching, CREAM 2S should be applied in the evening, and the hair should be washed in the morning using DERMICTIOL SHAMPOO without rubbing it into the scalp.

To maintain the remission of seborrheic dermatitis, the scalp should be rubbed with a few drops of GLICOSAL LOTION in the evening, and the hair washed using DERMICTIOL SHAMPOO.
