Our Integumentary Disease
Transcript of Our Integumentary Disease
Seborrheic Dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory disorder affecting areas of the head and trunk where sebaceous glands are most prominent.
a disease of the integumentary system
a common inflammatory skin condition that causes flaky white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas
most often identified as
on the head of infants
What Part of the Integumentary Systems Does it Affect?
Seborrheic Dermatitis affects the skin
the subaceous gland within the dermis layer of the skin is affected
the gland produces too much sebum which leads to the disorder
Sebum- an overflow mixture of cell content
How Does it Affect the Integumentary system?
Seborrheic Dermatitis affects the glands within the dermis layer
it affects the special type of sweat gland, sebaceous gland, that secrets the destructive sebum fluid
How does it occur?
vigorous shampoos and constant cleaning of affected area
antifungal and anti-inflammatory topical steroids are also helpful to control symptoms and flare ups
for severe cases, keratolytics such as salicylic acid or coal tar preparations may be used to remove dense scale
Other neurological conditions such as
Parkinson's disease, head injury, and
stroke may also be
associated with this condition
This disorder is caused by an overproduction of sebum in the sebaceous gland.
There are numerous theories as to why the overproduction of sebum occurs, yet the actual causes have not been identified.
Hair follicle where possible disease
causing yeast forms
Seborrheic Dermatitis is thought to occur with the combination of an over production of skin oil and irritation from yeast called Malassezie in the hair follicle
Stress, fatigue, weather extremes, oily skin, infrequent shampoos or skin cleaning, use of lotions that contain alcohol, skin disorders (acne), or obesity may increase the risk of contracting Sebbhoreic Dermatitis
This Disease is also thought to possibly be passed genetically from parent to offspring
Seborrheic Dermatitis affects 1-3% of the general population,.
More than 36% of HIV positive patients have Seborrheic Dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis cannot be cured, but remissions for varying amounts of time do occur naturally or as the results of treatment
