Seborrhoeic dermatitis is the scientific term of what we know as cradle cap in babies. But can you get it in adulthood? Yes, you can. It just looks a little different.
Adult-onset seborrhoeic dermatitis is quite common. Clinically apparent symptoms occur in around 3% of the general population. But because mild symptoms are not recorded, the incidence is likely much higher. The peak prevalence is in your 30’s and 40’s, and men are affected more often than women.
