Seborrhea - How to Recognize It and What's the Solution?


Seborrhea is influenced by excessive sebum production, but inadequate fat breakdown processes can also play a role in its development. Genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, and autoimmune processes are included among the triggering factors. Weather changes, particularly colder and drier weather, often worsen the condition and intensify the symptoms. Additionally, the severity of symptoms can be affected by periods of stress or illness in an individual’s life.

Autoimmune processes occur due to the body’s intolerances. Numerous intolerances can develop, possibly triggered by air pollution and other environmental factors such as chemicals, pesticides, and radiation. Improper hair and skincare routines can also lead to intolerance. Various medications, diseases, vitamin deficiencies, and other conditions like malnutrition, digestive issues, and medical treatments such as chemotherapy or hormone therapy can also contribute to the formation of an intolerance.

Food-related intolerances are increasingly common due to the abundance of artificial substances like fertilizers, preservatives, and contaminated water. Gluten sensitivity and lactose intolerance are now considered widespread. Intolerances can also arise from psychological factors such as stress, family problems, or an unhealthy lifestyle. When multiple intolerances occur simultaneously in the body, the immune system may start attacking its own cells, leading to autoimmune diseases.

Seborrhea affects approximately 5% of the population and can develop in any age group, affecting both men and women. Childhood seborrhea is often temporary, manifesting symptoms on the scalp, behind the ears, or eyebrows.



Dandruff can be a symptom of seborrhea. Essentially, dandruff is easily treatable and quickly curable. Dandruff often develops on the scalp due to factors such as colds, dryness, or exposure to certain chemicals, but it is usually a temporary symptom. In the case of seborrhea, however, it involves a lifelong autoimmune process. While there may be periods without symptoms, they tend to return over time, especially during periods of worsened mental health. Various intolerances continuously worsen the symptoms. In the case of seborrhea, scalp flaking (dandruff) is caused by the overgrowth of fungi, while increased sebum production by the scalp and skin causes greasiness.


Psoriasis and seborrhea are often mixed up. The main difference between the symptoms is that psoriasis presents as yellowish, whitish, dry, scaly patches on the scalp and body, while seborrhea is characterized by redness and greasiness. Seborrhea mostly affects the scalp and facial skin, whereas psoriasis can occur anywhere on the body, often in the folds if the body (e.g., elbows, behind the ears, knees).

However, these skin issues share some similarities. Both are autoimmune diseases often triggered by intolerances and can only be managed to be symptom-free, not cured. Stress and emotional issues exacerbate symptoms in both cases. Neither condition is contagious. Both conditions benefit from thermal water, salt water, and sunlight. Adopting a proper, conscious lifestyle and a healthy diet can promote improvement in both cases, and external treatments can be applied to both. Oxygen therapy can yield significant results for both seborrhea and psoriasis.


There are various treatment methods for seborrhea. Often, synthetic products and medications are used to treat this condition, but this approach can pose several problems. Medicinal products aim to eliminate seborrhea using more aggressive shampoos, creams, and drugs, providing only a short-term solution. This typically lasts for a maximum of three months, and if the treatment is discontinued afterward, the skin condition may worsen.

On the other hand, continued use of these medicinal products can lead to permanent health damage. This can result in inflammation of the skin and hair follicles, followed by their chronic degeneration, and hair loss may also accompany seborrhea over time.


The oxygen therapy developed by Oxygeni Hair and Skin helps provide adequate oxygen supply to cells and hair follicles. The treatment is preceded by a micro-camera scalp examination, allowing for convenient and in-depth observation of potential inflammations and detection of scalp problems.

oxygen therapy

During the therapy, we not only deliver fresh oxygen to the deeper layers of the skin but also use oxygen as a carrier molecule to deliver active ingredients to the right place. The advantage of the method is that without the use of needles, we introduce oxygen and serums specially formulated for treating skin abnormalities into the intercellular space, where the lymphatic fluid responsible for nourishing the cells is located.

By supplying the hair follicles and the skin with proper oxygen, vitamins, and minerals, hair strands are revived, strengthened, and thickened, while the scalp is cleansed of impurities and restored to its proper pH balance. Cosmetic oxygen therapy treats problematic skin areas, whether it is the chest, face, arms, or legs.

The therapy is recommended for both the scalp and the skin, as cosmetic oxygen therapy is now available alongside hair care treatment.

During the treatment, we deliver a complex of valuable vitamins and minerals into the deepest layers of the skin, where cell metabolism takes place. Oxygen not only ensures a regenerative effect on cells but also provides the necessary replenishment of active ingredients for renewed cell function. The skin is permeable to gases, so substances introduced into the skin with oxygen penetrate deeper than with normal application.


Few people know that many celebrities also struggle with seborrhea. Brad Pitt, Emma Stone, and Adele have all faced issues with this skin condition in the past, but they now prioritize their health and feel comfortable in their own skin.

Treating seborrhea was not an easy process for them, but they managed to address their symptoms. With natural and chemical-free solutions, they were able to maintain the health of their skin and hair.




Treating seborrhea is a significant challenge, as it requires not only the right hair care and skincare products and treatments but also lifestyle changes. It is essential to pay attention to personal hygiene and properly treat problematic areas.


Diet plays an important role in the development and severity of symptoms of any condition, including seborrhea. It is important to note that food intolerance is always associated with seborrhea – most commonly gluten, milk, egg, and yeast sensitivity – which must be investigated to manage symptoms effectively.

To promote healing, minimize the consumption of oily, heavy foods, dairy products, and sugar. Try to eliminate sugar consumption as much as possible, as the bacteria and fungi associated with seborrhea feed on sugar. It is also advisable, for more effective treatment, to undergo a candida test due to the potential presence of fungi and bacteria. When it comes to carbohydrates, opt for fiber-rich and whole grain foods. Additionally, consume plenty of vegetables and fruits, opting for low-sugar options if possible. Don’t forget to maintain proper hydration both internally and externally by ensuring adequate fluid intake.

Consuming natural dietary supplements greatly aids in the condition of the scalp and hair. It is essential to consume foods rich in vitamins. Incorporate foods or supplements into your diet that contain the following vitamins and minerals: Vitamin A, B6, and B12, Vitamin C, Folic acid, Zinc, Iron, Copper.



Since stress also plays a significant role in the treatment of seborrhea, we would like to emphasize that a stress-free, calm lifestyle can greatly contribute to improvement. Employ stress management techniques, meditate, and practice yoga. Find a leisure activity that relaxes and brings you joy.

In addition to internal factors, there are also external triggers or aggravating factors for seborrhea. Avoiding environmental chemicals and harmful substances is a crucial step towards healing. Furthermore, we recommend reviewing the side effects of medications to identify the cause of the condition. Besides food intolerances, skin conditions can also manifest as post-symptoms of viral and bacterial diseases, including seborrhea. COVID-19 can exacerbate the presence or development of seborrhea, categorizing it also among post-COVID illnesses.
