seborrheic-dermatitis

I have been researching this online and think it is seborrheic dermatitis. I have been using clotrimazole cream twice daily as suggested on the JUST ANSWER DERMATOLOGY site for 3 days now. My question is: what are the stages of healing of this problem? Now I have much more "crusting over" and it is very dry and more itchy than before beginning the use of the cream. By the description I've given do you think it is in the healing process? Thank you ahead of time for your opinion.
Hi, I am a 20 year old male, and back in November I was diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis on the sides of my nose. My Dermatologist prescribed me two creams Clotrimazole and Hydrocortisone. I have been using these creams since November; however, I have yet to see any significant improvement. Also he told me I have acne under my eyes which also seems to outline the Dermatitis, and he told me to use 2.5% Benzolye Peroxide.
Today, i visited dermatology doctor and was diagnosed to be Seborrheic Dermatitis. She gave me 3 kinds of medicine consisting of (1) Haicneal Shampoo encompassing Kentoconazole 15mg, Clobetasol Propionate 0,25mg and Excipients; (2) Dipolac containing Betamethasone Dipropionate 9,6mg, Gentamicin 15mg and Clotrimazole 150 mg; and (3) 10 capsules Laratadin Stada 10mg in 10 days. She said this disease would never end and recurred many times. could you please confirm this is true?
Hello, It can be due to seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). Later, pityrosporum yeast grows excessively in the sebum, sometime along with bacteria, making the dermatitis more persistent.
Hi there! Seborrhoeic dermatitis does not typically affect the glans. Without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, cysts, warts etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
The other possibility would be perioral dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity. Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches.
Male or female pattern baldness may follow a hereditary pattern. Treatment of the tinea and seborrheic dermatitis may help resolve the hair loss. Creams may not be sufficient for scalp infections. You may need oral antifungal therapy. But first a microscopic evaluation of the scalp scrapings may be done to ascertain the diagnosis.
Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be nummular dermatitis, ringworm or seborrheic dermatitis. Treatment of all is different. Ringworm is a fungal infection, nummular dermatitis is a sort of eczema and allergic reaction if one of its triggers. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face.
Other possibilities are seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis(less likely). Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.

Oral antifungal drugs and immunomodulators such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are used in very severe cases.

As when i went to the dermotologist he said he thought it was seborrheic dermatitis but it doesnt seem to be reacting to hydrocortisone cream but yet making it burn putting it on and makes the area turn more of a red colour rather than a red. After applying the sudocrem it turns to a pink colour. If just keeping it clean and applying sudocrem would it reduce after time?
Hi, A contact dermatitis, irritant dermatitis and an allergic reaction may be differentials. You need to identify possible triggers for the condition. Does cold weather, particular food or use of cosmetics aggravate the condition? What factors surround its onset? Have you changed a facial cream or a lipstick recently? How about your toothpaste, have you recently switched brands? I suggest that you continue to discuss your concerns with your physician.
I am a male and am 18 years old and also suffer from seborrheic dermatitis. Ive done a great deal of research on this condition and have realized that hair loss commonly occurs with this condition when it becomes more severe (This occurs because when the dry scales of skin lift up, they sometimes adhere to the hair and take-out the hair with them).
And to think, that a noted dermatologist prescribed a anti-psychotic drug for delusional parasitosis! I read your piece on seborrheic dermatitis, and what I am experiencing sounds exactly like what you described. My immune system was weakened due to protracted emotional stress, allowing my floria (demodex and malassezia) to proliferate. My treatment regimen dealt with the demodex, but wasn't designed to deal with malassezia. Now the clotrimazole is dealing with the fungus.
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.
Psoriasis - my dad and grandma on moms side both have it pretty bad Dermatitis - possibly seborrheic(although the description doesn't sound like it really Contact or atopic Dermatitis - would have to be multiple things, friction, latex, lotions, soaps Lichen Planus - I haven't seen a case on the internet that looks much like this HPV - I really worry about this one because it's the only STD I'm not sure about and I could be exposing my girlfriend... Any thoughts would be appreciated.
The doctor said I had seborrheic dermititis - which can also show up as flaky skin around your nose and mouth. Using a prescription co-steroid cream helped the flaky itchy skin - - still dealing with the liquid running out of my ear..... If the ear doctor doesn't help - see a dermatologist....
Been treated for blepharitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and allergies. Whenever I start another treatment I have a short period of relief. It always comes back...longest time without symptoms 10 days. Like eveyone else, I have thrown all makeup, lotions, and soaps away. Washed sheets, pillow cases, and put pillow in the dryer. This has become debilitating and I am becoming depressed. I have a high profile job and don't want to be seen because I look like I have some awful disease.
Hi, Differentials may include eczematous disease ( allergic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis)involving the extremities.There may be an overlying infection after severely scratching or breaking the skin. Have you any known allergies? At this point it is difficult to tell what causes the condition. A complete examination by an internist or dermatologist may help. Have you tried taking any medications before that relieved the symptoms?
I experiance these same kind of lacerations. The best treatment I have found is Balmex- a kind of skin protectant found in the pharmacy area with diaper rash items. Other similar products containing zinc oxide were recommended by my doctor but cause intolerable itching.
I used to have problems with seborrheic dermatitis around my nose when I was a kid so the only other thing I can think of is that. Is there something else they could be? If they are forcyde spots, is there a way to make my lips feel moist again? I don't care about the appearance, but they are very uncomfortable.
Long story short- I found a doctor who finally treated me for Lymes with Doxycycline and I low and behold, I got better and consequently--no more orange tongue (it's been a year since treatment). The orange, I believe to likely have been from one of one of the bacteria I had contracted from a tick bite. As I grew more and more ill, my skin under tones also changed to orangish/copper like color (enough to have had to change the colors of my makeup).
Since this is a common area where yeast infections tend to crop up, that only served to reinforce my assumption that the problem around my eyes was in fact due to yeast (fungi) also. On the foreskin area, I put an anti fungal liquid treatment from Lotrimin. It's in a little eye dropper and called "Lotrimin AF antifungal". It's clotrimazole liquid.. That cleared up the issue around my foreskin right away. So, since that worked so well, I also started using it on my eyes.
The fist time I tested positive, I had done the candida treatment. I think it worked because at some point I did the test several times and it was negative. I was so happy. Unfortunately, that did not last. I started having the same signs again, and when I tested it was positive again. And ever since I can't get it to be negative again, meaning the candida if that is what I have has become resistant to the supplements that I was using.
