More and more people are suffering from this not-so-pleasant dermatological problem: scalp scabs or the scalp disease also known scientifically as seborrheic dermatitis.
Dermatitis can be simply translated as an inflammation of the scalp, but this condition is characterized by a multitude of symptoms such as dry skin, hyperemia (red skin), pruritus (itching), crusts and other exfoliative lesions, papules (little painful injuries), vesicles (with fluid).
There are several types of dermatitis, depending on the triggering factor, but their treatment is somehow similar. Most types of seborrheic dermatitis are being characterized by the appearance of pinkish, pruritic or non-rust stains caused by the contact with certain objects, plants, animals or substances.
Plants are most often blamed for developing dermatitis: certain vegetables, fruits, herbs or even the earth may cause skin irritation.
In addition, scalp scabs are most of the times accompanied by dandruff, which appears when you are not hydrating enough or because of an inappropriate nutrition.
