What is seborrheic dermatitis and how is it treated?

My friend was diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis. Is it serious? What treatments are available?

This skin related condition is one that most usually affects the scalp,face and torso being caused primarily by a yeast. Unfortunately,the treatments are either a RX drug with lots of side effects or homeopathic treatments,which are more difficult to comprise. This condition is not considered serious but does need to be maintained by the patient.

It is a skin disorder that affects the scalp and face. Dermatologist will sometimes recommend special soaps and shampoos that contain coal tar, ciclopiroxolamine, ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, or zinc pyrithione.
