Seborrheic dermatitis is a dog skin disorder that starts around large
oil glands: the face, behind ears, and
the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis is characterized
by inflamed scalp, greasy, waxy scale,
and sometimes reddened skin rashes.
Wash your dog with Neem shampoo to moisten the scalp, apply Neem oil topically several times per day. It will relieve the itching, and supports healing. Drinking Neem tea for several days will ease seborrheic dermatitis.
Shampoos containing zinc, salicylic acid, sulphur, or tar also may help to reduce seborrheic dermatitis.
Certain drugs (methyldopa, anti-seizure medications) can worsen seborrheic dermatitis.
