SeborrheicDermatitis: Various stages of severity exist and influence the treatment chosen. Start with frequent (at least daily) and extended shampooing with antidandruff shampoos. They contain ketoconazole, ciclopirox, coal tar, salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione your doctor can prescibe a topical corticosteroid lotion that can help once you have been using the anti fungal shampoos.
