Multifaceted treatment is required when multiple diseases present themselves simultaneously, especially when their symptoms overlap. This is frequently the case with rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis. A survey on 1,099 rosacea patients conducted by the National Rosacea Society found that 25% were also diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis.

What are the Treatment Options for Rosacea and Seborrheic Dermatitis?
Treatment options vary depending on the location of seborrheic dermatitis or rosacea flare-ups. For example, rosacea of the scalp treatments will likely include rosacea shampoo. Areas around your eyes will require more sensitive products that do not contain steroids. On the flipside, regular application of hydrocortisone for seborrheic dermatitis is the common nasal seborrheic dermatitis treatment.
Let’s look at some of the broader treatments professionals recommend for rosacea dermatitis.
Any search for a rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis treatment will yield topical steroid creams. These hydrocortisone-formulated creams are commonly prescribed by doctors. Unfortunately, these products can lead to the thinning of the skin, an undesirable occurrence for the body’s first line of defense. Usage over longer periods of time can also lead to rosacea-like symptoms, such as redness and irritated skin. Additionally, steroid creams don’t pose as a good rosacea dermatitis treatment for sensitive skin, such as the skin around the eyes, due to the damage they can cause.
There are a variety of anti-fungal creams for rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis out there. Scientific studies have shown that ketoconazole is the most effective of the different anti-fungal agents. Others such as clotrimazole fail to properly keep seborrheic dermatitis under control. However, the strength of ketoconazole can prove troublesome for those with sensitive skin. Note that ketoconazole creams can also have side effects similar to the diseases it’s treating such as itching, dryness, or redness of the treated areas.
