I Have Severe Seborrheic Dermatitis On My Scalp – Will I Lose My Hair?
We have seen this condition cover the entire scalp, but it the massive flaking only appears above the skin and the skin cycles more frequently producing massive flaking. As hair loss in most men is genetic and occur from genes in the hair follicles which are below (deep) in the scalp, what you see above or on the scalp will not impact hair loss. If you pick at it regularly, then you might continue to pick out your hair and produce ‘traction alopecia’ from chronic pulling of the hairs. So the answer to your questions is no, there is no connection between Seborrheic Dermatitis and hair loss (see: HERE).
