Pityriasis Amiantacea

Pityriasis amiantacea is a scalp condition that causes scaling, and can occur in patches anywhere on your scalp. It most commonly affects those between the ages of 25 and 50, and also those who havepsoriasis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis and lichen simplex.

Pityriasis amiantacea is initially characterised by the formation of tight scales on the scalp. Eventually, these scales overlap, cling together, ‘build up’ and result in hard patches with matted hair at the root.
