Seborrheic dermatitis vitamin deficiency

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis vitamin deficiency


Avatar_n_tn Hi, Seborrhoeic eczema (also Se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> AmE, 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. Soaps and detergents such as sodium laureth sulfate may precipitate a flare-up, as they strip moisture from the top layers of the skin, and the drying property of these can cause flare-ups and may worsen the condition.
Avatar_n_tn my name is rishi.i am suffering from se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> since two years. till 19 my hair were so dense,that barber use to say every time,that if a fly by mistake gets inside ,it wont come out alive.the were too curly,but i did'nt liked so curled hair. so,i got my hair straightened and the the problem started. my hair started to fall.i inquired and came to know thats normal after getting hair straightned and i will come back to normal in 2-4 months but that never happned.
Avatar_n_tn I've talked to my friend's father who is a physician and he said these could be symptoms of <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> b <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>deficiency</span>. The thing is, I eat good sources of <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> b all the time. I eat bananas, chicken, eggs, and whole grain bread almost every day. but I do drink a lot of water. I would say around 2-3 gallons a day. So could my high water consumption be flushing the background-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin b out of my body?
Avatar_m_tn Hello, Seborrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>, rosacea and eczema are not related to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>deficiency</span> of b Complex, Zinc, Magnesium, <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> A, C, E. 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. The exact cause of rosacea is not known. The basic process seems to involve dilation of the small blood vessels of the face.
Avatar_m_tn One thing also to consider is an underlying <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> or mineral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>deficiency</span>. In the case of se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>, vigorous washing of the face with a mild and bland cleanser may be able to help. You may ask your dermatologist with regards to this. Application of 1% hydrocortisone cream may be also necessary at least twice a day. Do you have any known allergies? Have you been dieting lately or have been lacking sleep lately? Any increase in stress levels?
Avatar_n_tn I have been diagnosed by several dermatologists as having se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> so I use TGEL shampoo and cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. Recently I stopped using moisturizers because my skin seemed too oily and voila my skin looks very good (my blepharitis also cleared up as soon as I stopped using treatments). However my extremely flaky/seemingly dry lips remain.
Avatar_n_tn So these have to be ruled out. This could also be a case of se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>. There is no cure as such, but it can be controlled by medicated shampoos and lotions. A tissue biopsy of the scab and underlying tissue may be required to reach a diagnosis. Hope this helps. Please consult a skin specialist. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!

681148_tn?1437665191 Hello, Dryness of scalp can be due to hormonal imbalance, poor health, poor hygiene, allergic hypersensitivity, lack of rest, emotional stress, excessive consumption of sugar, fat or starch, heredity predisposition and medical causes like eczema, atopic dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar_m_tn I was just diagnosed with Se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>, and after reading about it I found it can also affect the eyebrows. It is a chronic but relatively easy to treat skin condition that supposedly results from too much oil on the skin and commonly affects the scalp and eyebrows, but can also affect the face and chest. I have no idea if this is it, but I have been experiencing a little hair loss on the scalp, but once treated, the hair will grow back.
5595906_tn?1370583245 For your dandruff, get se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> also ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.

Avatar_f_tn I went to the dermatologist on 3/24/15 because I have had a sore on the top of my scalp plus I have a real bad case of se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and because my face is red. Mostly my cheeks and nose. After her asking me a few question and also looking at my back and chest she told me she didn't think the red on my face was rosacea and that she was going to order blood work. I have been to dermatologist before and have never had them send me for blood work.
Avatar_m_tn Go to another doctor, or prescribe yourself the standard blood panel including <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> D3, b12, and MMA. As you know, a <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> b12 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>deficiency</span> will always cause pernicious anemia.One of the resjuts of PA cold be autonomic Neuropathy which causes irregular heartrates. Your ED can be a result of the same deficiency or even very low cholesterol. Get your testosterone checked. If it is low---and given your symptoms, it probably is. Get a Tribulus Terrestris supplement.
Avatar_m_tn I guess with all of the spotlight on former NFL/New Orleans Saints star Steven Gleason I've become so paranoid about ALS that it's driving my nerves up the wall and I always gravitate towards the worse possible scenario. I'm a relatively healthy ( I have Se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>) 34 yr old male. The spasms are barely even noticeable and aren't consecutive and usually is not even in the same spot more than once. Of course my paranoia and fear has made me do a bunch of research on ALS.
Avatar_m_tn The doctor said it was se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and gave me coritcosteroid cream...which I overused, and which I wonder if contributed to the shingles (other than my idiotic lifestyle at the time.) I have been anxious/angry lately over being separated, and before much of this recent bout began, though after the fasciculations, I had an attack of anger/hypersensitivity, and I wonder if this ushered in much of whatever this is/these are. I hope this makes sense.
Avatar_f_tn Plus, with the development of several chronic dermatitis issues from tx (Rosacea, Se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span>), the sun only makes all of that get much worse. I also have now found that I can get sunburned, in my car, through my clothes, if I am sitting in the car with sun streaming in a window...often with little red bumps, and a rashy reaction! That is just weird!!! be careful with the sun, is all I will say. Especially ON tx!!!!!
Avatar_n_tn Adrenal fatigue symptoms include low blood pressure, low body temperature, difficulty falling asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, afternoon slumps, sensitivity to noise, muscle weakness, super sensitive skin, poor tolerance of heat, oily hair. Se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> may be caused by oily skin or hair. A seasonal affective disorder study showed cortisol levels were lower in winter. Worsening adrenal fatigue during winter might explain your labwork (cortisol is an anti inflammatory).
612876_tn?1355518095 I think the stuff related to the oil glands on my lower eyelid (which I believe he said is affecting the oil layer of my tear film, for those who have really gotten in-depth in studying dry eye) he has narrowed down to either being related to my se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> or possibly a just barely onsetting case of rosacea. So I'll skip that part because I don't think it's particularly relevant to dysauto (though if anyone has similar issues and wants more info, I'm glad to answer questions).
Avatar_n_tn My hair is sarting to become grey.I have se<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>orrheic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>dermatitis</span> and Iam used to use selsun blue shampoo (that contains selenium) but today I read that it increases the graying of hair when used as shampoo,but may improve the graying if used orally as antioxidant. but i wonder that "Funnily enough, one sign of an overdose of seleniumSelenium - an antioxidant is hair loss." I wish that more studies to be done concerning it. I read that it has an antioxidant activity 50 times as vit.E.
Avatar_f_tn I wash my hair every day, with a sulfur-free shampoo. My blood tests all came back in a normal range, with a slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>deficiency</span> in <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>b</span>ackground-color: #dae8f4'>vitamin</span> D. I've tried all the dandruff shampoos on the market and none of them offer much relief. Please help me. I have been incredibly unsuccessful at finding a doctor who could give me any clue as to what is happeneing. And my fear of these pimples/scabs of permanently damaging the hair follicles increases by the day. What could this be?
