Seborrheic Dermatitis with Dr. Primmer (Pedcast)


Welcome to another edition of docsmo.com, the pediatric blog dedicated to parents and children.  We are fortunate to have joining us today, Dr. Sue Primmer, an expert dermatologist and pediatrician and long time friend. She has graciously agreed to help us understand a common skin condition in babies called seborrheic eczema or seborrheic dermatitis.  Dr. Primmer is likely to mention many products that can be used on the skin.  Let me assure my listeners that neither she nor I have any association with these products.  hey are mentioned because Dr. Primmer feels that they work well.  I will list these in the Smo Notes at the end of the transcript.

1. What is seborrheic dermatitis?  What is going on in skin?  Why does it affect babies?

2. Why the scalp?

3. What is the natural history of this skin condition?

4. How is it treated and what are the goals of treatment?

5. What helps?  What products do you like to use.

6. Do you have any advice for parents with young children who have seborrheic dermatitis or eczema?

Thank you for helping myself and the many families listening who benefit from your experience and knowledge.  We will do it again soon. Doc Smo, until next time.
