Why should you avoid putting coconut oil and olive oil on seborrheic dermatitis? What are the treatment options for seborrheic dermatitis? What is malassezia and how does this affect seborrheic dermatitis? What are the best topical solutions to help malassezia? What oils should you put on seborrheic dermatitis? Why you should not apply undiluted essential oils directly to the skin We also talked about how seborrheic dermatitis is caused by malassezia.  Everyone has malassezia. It is a lipophilic yeast that eats lipids, and it's a normal part of our body and our microflora. There are 14 different species of malassezia on humans, but they're on other mammals like dogs. We actually think that every mammal has malassezia -  but most people haven't heard of it! It's a yeast that everyone has that isn't talked about a lot.    Malassezia causes many different skin conditions, but the most common is seborrheic dermatitis, and we call it Seb Derm. Today, we are going to talk about the treatments for malassezia that cause the dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis.    -- My guest today, Dr. Julie Greenberg, is a licensed ND who specializes in integrative dermatology.
