Lawrenceville Seborrheic Dermatitis Treatment

If you suffer from recurring dandruff, you may have seborrheic dermatitis. This noncontagious skin disorder can be easily managed with proper treatment. Symptoms can be lifelong and go through cycles of disappearance and flare up recurrences between treatments. Seborrheic dermatitis treatment in Lawrenceville is available at Medical Dermatology Specialists for effective relief for individuals in Gwinnett County.

Causes of Seborrheic Dermatitis Treatment

The exact cause of seborrheic dermatitis is unknown. Certain factors can play a role in the formation of this skin disorder. Your family history and increased levels of androgens and lipids can increase your risk. A cold and dry climate, oily skin and the use of alcohol-based lotions can aggravate symptoms and lead to a greater frequency of flare ups. You also have a greater risk if you have a personal history of other skin disorders.

Symptoms of Seborrheic Dermatitis

The symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis include recurring scaly patches and dandruff. Skin patches may appear greasy, swollen and reddish in color. There may be a yellow or white scaling on the surface of the skin. A skin biopsy may be necessary for a diagnosis to rule out other similar skin disorders such as psoriasis, rosacea and atopic dermatitis.

The root cause of this condition is unknown. The condition may be associated with a yeast fungus within oily skin secretions. With babies, this condition is commonly known as cradle cap. Weather changes and stress can aggravate symptoms. Your risk for developing seborrheic dermatitis can increase if you have the following medical conditions:

  • Alcoholism
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Eating Disorder
  • HIV
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Acne
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
