Answer

Seborrheic dermatitis is characterized histologically by spongiosis, mild perivascular, lymphohistiocytic, mononuclear cellular infiltrates in the superficial dermis. Staphylococcal blepharitis is a chronic nongranulomatous inflammation, usually with neutrophils and, often, acanthosis or parakeratosis.
