I'm sorry to hear what you have been through for the past months. Seborrheic dermatitis
is a chronic condition that can be controlled with treatment
. The severity of seborrheic dermatitis can be lessened by controlling the risk factors and by proper skin care. Over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos is usually indicated for the flaking. However, shampoos or lotions containing selenium, ketoconazole, or corticosteroids may be prescribed for severe cases.
