Today, we are going to talk about the treatments for malassezia that cause dandruff, cradle cap, and seborrheic dermatitis.
Everyone has malassezia. It is a lipophilic yeast that eats lipids, and it’s a normal part of our body and our microflora. There are 14 different species of malassezia on humans, but they’re on other mammals like dogs. We actually think that every mammal has malassezia – but most people haven’t heard of it! It’s a yeast that everyone has that isn’t talked about a lot.
If you have seborrheic dermatitis, you’ll learn how to treat it and why you should avoid coconut oil and olive oil on your scalp. You’ll also learn why hydrosols (such as rosemary hydrosols) and apple cider vinegar can be a good option for seborrheic dermatitis.
We also talk about additional treatment options for seborrheic dermatitis, which include dandruff, eczema on your scalp, and facial eczema.
