In brief: Yes
Seborrheic dermatitis can involve face and scalp and can be treated with topical antifungals or steroid creams to decrease causative organism and inflammation.
This treatment is long term, and intermittent as needed. A topical of Eurax (crotamiton) lotion may offer long term relief in selected cases by reducing demodex, a small parasite which lives in hair follicles.
