Seborrhea is characterized as a red, itchy, scaly rash, which is usually located on the scalp. However, it can also show up on the face (around the nose, eyelids, and ears) and on the body (around the navel, under skin folds of the arms, legs, and breasts, etc.). For some patients, their seborrhea may resolve itself in a matter of time. That said, it is usually a chronic condition that is manageable with proper medical treatment and good skin care habits.
