Finding signs of seborrheic eczema, immediately go to a dermatologist. The disease is important to "seize" at the very beginning, so that it does not lead to complications.

Treatment will be selected depending on the stage of the disease, its severity, your individual characteristics.
The most common therapy is to prescribe corticosteroids - ointments or creams containing hormones. These substances reduce inflammation of the skin, accelerate the process of regeneration. If such remedies are recommended to you, apply externally with Elokom, Advantan or Lokoid. The first two means apply on the affected skin with a thin layer once a day, the last - 3 or 4 times. Consider that applying these ointments and creams without a doctor's prescription is dangerous: they cause thinning of the skin and may contribute to the adherence of a bacterial infection.
Today, a new group of drugs has appeared that help alleviate the condition of patients with various kinds of eczema, including seborrheic. These are topical inhibitors.

Try using Tacrolimus or Protopic ointment, Pimecrolimus cream. But, again, only by appointment of the attending physician.
If seborrheic eczema is severe, too large skin areas are inflamed, and local therapy does not bring the expected results, specialists prescribe systemic treatment. It is expressed in the intake of drugs that suppress the immune system. These are, for example, corticosteroids such as Prednisolone, Triamycinolone, etc. They should be taken in the form of tablets or injections. In severe cases, cytostatics are used - "Cyclosporin", "Methotrexate", etc.
