Connecting the Dots Between Dermatitis and Hair Loss

Dermatitis is a very common skin conditions but many of our patients are concerned that dermatitis, specifically seborrheic dermatitis, can lead to hair loss.

This chronic skin condition most commonly affects the hair, face and scalp. As the scalp is such a sensitive area, severe inflammation associated with this disorder can lead to hair loss.


The scalp will appear scaly and inflamed, dry and/or oily, and the hair follicles will be unable to receive and process enough oxygen to produce new hair.

If you believe you may suffer from dermatitis-associated hair loss, there’s no need to panic. Hair loss is only permanent in the most severe cases and if you catch the condition early, you will be able to control and maybe even reverse symptoms.

We recommend seeking expert advice and support before choosing your hair loss treatment.
