Seborrheic Dermatitis or Cradle Cap or Dandruff Scalp Itch (Balakubak)

Seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea is a very common scalp condition that occurs when our scalp’s renewal process is shortened, this leads to the rapid shedding of our scalp’s dead skin cells, forming visible flakes.

A microorganism, Malassezia globosa, which thrives on the natural lipids (oils) of our scalp, triggers the process. It irritates our scalp, causing micro-inflammations, scalp itchiness, redness, and dandruff.
