seborrheic-dermatitis

When I saw the dermatologist she did not want to treat me for this area instead she wanted to first treat me for this other skin condition that she felt was seborrheic dermatitis. For the last seven years, onset was during my pregnacy with my twins, I have had a slightly reddend area that has somewhat of a hyper exfoliation to it. I have managed to keep this area not a problem by being extremely careful of what I use on my face.
2 days ago the rash got much worse so I went to see my local dermatologist. After looking at my face for a minute he said I indeed have seborrheic dermatitis. He prescribed Desoximetasone Cream USP, 0.25%. I believe this is a potent cortsteroid cream. The cream seemed to help the first night but yesterday 2 new rashes appeared. Again today another 2 small rashes appeared. The new rashes are near my left eye and upper cheak area (not in my immediate hairline).

Hi Doctor, I have a bad case of seborrheic dermatitis in my eyebrows. I tried Desonide, which helped, but when I switched to Elidel, it wasn't successful in controlling my seb derm. And my derm told me to switch back to desonide. ~10 days, twice daily desonide ~2-3 weeks twice daily Elidel ~10 days twice daily desonide+salycylic acid, 6% ~a few days Elidel My treatment has probably gone on for a little over six weeks total (which is what's listed about). 1.
Hi, I was recently diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis a month ago. I have been having electrolysis on my face and this is when it first appeared and only came after my electrolysis treatement.

Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
hello, I have seborrheic dermatitis in my scalp and over my nose, inside ears and eye-brows. (and probably the very point where my eye-lashes grow).

Hi, Seborrhoeic eczema (also Seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea) is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks go untreated for long periods of time, permanent hair loss may result due to damaged hair follicles. Expect two to six months before hair growth may resume.
Hello, From the symptoms it looks like perioral dermatitis only. Seborrheic dermatitis could have been another possibility but it does not explain the pimples and acne. Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil(non perfumed) should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.

Dr Rockoff, Three and a half months ago I went to the doctor because of a sharp pain in my left eye and burning sensation in both eyes. I had a red dot in my left eye where the burning was, but the doc had no idea and perscribed plain eye drops to help lubricate.
I have been experiencing a rash on the calf of my left leg for about two+ years. The rash starts out with little red spots and then forms tiny blisters which are very itchy. The rash becomes prominent during the hot summer months but continues throught the year at a lesser intensity. The rash was treated with Fluocinonide, a topical steriod cream, and was wrapped in plastic wrap during the evening which healed the irritated calf very well.

Hello - I too have had the same issue with reoccurring angry red lesions that turn scaly, particularly on my cheek and either side of my nose. After loads and loads of research I figured out that is was probably 'Seborrheic Dermatitis' - I suggest that you use Google Images to take a look at others affected. The most effective treatment (that I have discovered) is to use simple Head & Shoulders as a facial cleanser.
I get the same type of reaction to almost all cleaning agents for the face. I also have seborrheic dermatitis flare ups. I can only use a very mild cleanser called Purpose by Johnson & Johnson. I think that I've tried almost every cleanser out there only to give it to my sisters as they don't have skin problems. The deep cleansers are the worst and never try a mint mask, I can't remember what company put it out.

A while back I put a number of skin care products on my face including my nose and I remember using aloe vera plant juice raw on the bridgeo f my nose rubbing it in, I also used vaseline and a number of essentials oils which made my nose look like a shiny piece of skin almost looking strange from the skin on my face. After some time I noticed the nose began to get drier and the skin began to look matt again... but after water would touch the skin it would feel sticky after...
