Seborrheic dermatiti: Seborrheic dermatitis tends to be chronic, and there's usually no strategy that stops it permanently. But treatments, including many you can try at home, may control your signs and symptoms during a flare-up. Anti fungal agents that you want to look for in the products you buy are: ketoconazole, ciclopirox, terbinafine (lamisil), zinc pyrithione, coal tar, and salacylic acid.
