Eczema of The Scalp and Similar Scalp Problems

January 8th, 2010

Scalp Conditions- Eczema

Many people are familiar with eczema.  It can show upon any part of the body.  One area where it often occurs is the scalp.  The scalp is more susceptible to many skin conditions, including eczema, because of the amount of oil that is normally present on the scalp. It is considered one of the more long term scalp problems.

Scalp eczema is also known as seborrheic eczema.  It tends to appear on greasy or oily areas of the body, like the scalp.  Other common areas for eczema are the t-zone of the face.  The eyebrows and corners of the mouth also sometimes get eczema which ends up with white flakes in the eyebrows and also flakes in the ears . 

Characteristics of eczema are flaking and scaling on the scalp.  The scales caused by eczema tend to be white or yellowish in color.  The skin that is below the scales is often inflamed and red.  Usually it occurs in patches on the scalp, but at times it may spread over the whole scalp.  It is usually very itchy.  It is not advisable to scratch, but many people find the temptation impossible to avoid.  Scratching of course can cause the area to become infected. 

Scalp eczema is a chronic condition, but it can be treated.  You should stay away from products that have chemical ingredients that may only make the problem worse.  Instead look for products with natural ingredients that work to balance the oil on the scalp.  Jojoba oil and emu oil are good natural ingredients that moisturize the hair and scalp.  Sage and thyme work to detoxify the scalp.  Zinc is an ingredient that balances the scalp and regulates the sebum gland.
