Scaly scalp conditions, like seborrhea dermatitis, pityriasis amiantacea, psoriasis and pityriasis simplex, are all scalp conditions that, if handled incorrectly, can cause temporary or permanent hair loss.
Scaly scalp conditions are caused by different underlying reasons. They may be the side effect of a problem occurring with the autoimmune system, or a sebaceous gland issue – which is the oil secreting gland of the skin, or as simple as the buildup of dead cells, dirt or debris and bacteria. Hence, it is necessary to identify the cause before attempting treatment. To know more about scalp conditions click here.
