Abnormalization can occur in any person regardless of age, but most often it occurs during a period of rapid pubescence, when the hormonal background changes substantially, secretion of the sebaceous glands increases. Seborrhea often affects middle-aged or elderly people, and men tend to be more affected.

There is a seborrhea in the form of a crust of light yellow color, usually localized on the scalp. Over time, these crust beaten off. They may look like a regular magnifying glass, so their appearance does not always matter.
