We should have in mind that seborrheic dermatitis is a condition, so it is often not possible to cure it completely. However, it can be successfully kept under control. Antifungals and anti-inflammatory drugs are used in the treatment, as well as immunomodulators, less often corticosteroids. If necessary, the therapy can be repeated. Also, in the dormant phases of the disease, it is desirable to use medical cosmetics intended for skin prone to seborrheic dermatitis. Controlled sun exposure can be beneficial in seborrheic dermatitis treatment, and can lead to its regression.
