Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition that can cause red, itchy, and flaky patches on the scalp. While seborrheic dermatitis can be irritating and uncomfortable, it typically does not cause permanent hair loss.
However, in some cases, severe or chronic inflammation from seborrheic dermatitis may contribute to temporary hair loss. This can occur because the inflammation can damage hair follicles, leading to hair breakage or shedding.
If you are experiencing hair loss and have seborrheic dermatitis, it is important to consult with a dermatologist to determine the cause of your hair loss and develop a treatment plan. In most cases, treating the underlying seborrheic dermatitis will help to reduce inflammation and prevent further hair loss.
