Dandruff under eyebrows

Common Questions and Answers about Dandruff under eyebrows


Avatar f tn For a couple years now, the skin under my eyebrows has been very dry & flaky most of the time. I moisturize my whole face including that area. Is there anything I can do to help it? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I've had this happen maybe a couple of times, but this is the first time it has been so severe and affected both eyebrows at the same time. I think it is due to dry skin from the weather changes, but the skin at the base of my eyebrows is incredibly itchy. It did flake a bit, but moisturizer stopped that...
Avatar m tn My face is red and irritated, with patches of dry flaky skin (looks like dandruff) around my nose and under my eyebrows (literally under the hair that makes up my eyebrows). I can no longer use soap or any type of cleanser as they irritate my skin further. I have been rinsing my face with luke warm water (water too hot or too cold burns) I have been to the dr (military doctors mind you, the same dr. who diagnosed my 4 yr.
Avatar m tn I was also diagnosed with a very mild form of seborrheic dermatitis, but I just have very mild flaking/dandruff in the eyebrows. There is no inflammation though. Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have sensitive skin but for months I have had really bad dry skin under my beard. It's so bad that if I rub my beard, chunks of skin fall out. This also happens in my eyebrows. It is effecting my life greatly, very embarrassing. What can I do to cure this ??
Avatar n tn Well, I am so happy to hear I am not the only person with salt grains forming under my eyebrows. I am a 65 year old female and this condition just started the past couple months. I don't have the crystals until late evening, usually feel them on the way home from work and wonder how long they were there. No one has mentioned them, but I think they may be noticed. I follow a healthy low-carb diet and have never had gallbladder problems. I do not exercise, as I should.
Avatar n tn As the subject says, I often find a salt like powder in and under my eyebrows (not eyes). It is often pronounced enough that I notice it immediately when glancing at a mirror. Obviously it is due to sweating in that area but why is there so much sweating going on there specifically? This happens without doing strenuous exercise by the way, and there is no sweat dripping in my face, but I have noticed that the region gets humid often, while walking for example.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn I've have dry flaky skin under my beard and eyebrows pretty much all the the time. I apply moisterizer after my showers and in the mornings before work...to no effect. It doesnt itch or burn...just flaky and embarrasing because i look like i've been eating glazed donuts or soemthing. I drink plenty of water daily and i take multivitamins as well. not sure why i mention that but if that informations helps. Is there any suggestions as to what i can to do solve this problem?
Avatar f tn The flakiness under my nose however is much like dandruff, but a lot worse. I exfoliate and then moisturise (I have tried a few different moisturises, however after each one the dry area of my nose/eyes sting.) I do this every morning and every night...I leave the house with relatively smooth skin under the nose, although it stings, but half way through the day I notice the dry skin is suddenly back in abundance. It's very uncomfortable, and irritating.
Avatar m tn ( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up. I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.
Avatar m tn If you have flaking and scaling, like you have dandruff in your eyebrows, then it's probably something fungal. If it's not super red and inflamed, you could try applying some hydrocortisone cream to it. If it helps, it probably is some sort of organism causing irritation and the hair loss, and something like ketoconazole cream or even lotramin would be the thing to do. I would go see another dermatologist about it before trying to treat it yourself.
Avatar n tn For about a week now I have been feeling very itchy; under my eyes itch, my eyebrows, my hand, just about everywhere.... could this be an allergy problem?
Avatar m tn Sometimes it reappears with reddish color. It itches also sometimes. Is it a serious disease? I have acute dandruff. It sometimes appears on eyebrows as well. My hair has fallen because of that. Please suggest.
Avatar n tn I'm not exactly sure where my condition falls under. Anyway, to keep it short, I have been having issues/problems with my eyebrows and I am trying to diagnose why. Some of the symptoms include 1) dead skin in the proximity of the affected/infected area (particularly after taking a shower or something). 2) Loss of hair to the eyebrow. 3) A temptation to scratch or rub (as in to alleviate the itch) in the area where I'm incurring eyebrow hair loss.
Avatar n tn 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. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.
Avatar m tn I am in my mid-eighties and am experiencing for the very first time a sudden episode of itchy forehead, eyebrows and scalp. My general health has normally been very good except for occasional bouts of hay-fever. Would appreciate any help in identifying possible cause/s.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, even though my doctor looked at my scalp for one second at most. From what I have read, it can affect the scalp, eyebrows, face, and chest, and it may be recurring. I am now using Head and Shoulders Intensive Treatment to treat my scalp, but could this condition eventually affect my face or chest? I would hate having to deal with this where it would be visible to others. If it could, is there any way I can prevent it?

Avatar f tn Hi wondering if you can help, for some time on and off i have had yellowish scaling /dandruff under eyebrows and some dandrufifsh scales on base of eyelashes with some white discharge sitting in corner of the eye this didn't cause many issues , a little irritation now and again , my partner kissed me on the eye with a coldsore on their mouth about a week later i had really irritated eye white discharge now coming out of eye also went to other eye .
Avatar m tn Scaling of the eyebrows is usually seborrhea, a scaly rash that doesn't cause hair loss. Scalp dandruff is part of the same condition. I think you need a visit to a skin specialist to sort things out and convince you that you are not in fact going bald, which I believe you aren't. Take care. Dr.
Avatar n tn I have always had horrible dandruff(psoriasis) only on my scalp so its hard to tell what is dandruff or if there really could be lice or some other kind of mites crawling up there. How do I tell the difference between scabies, lice, bedbugs, tiny white worms, and dandruff flakes?
Avatar m tn No big deal, a few months later i noticed a lot of dandruff. 6 months after that the sides of my scalp started to thin a little bit. Then my eyebrows started thinning the same way my hair did. Now i can visibly see hair falling out all over my scalp but the thing that worries me the most is the hair falling from my eyebrows. My scalp flakes a lot and it always produces these little hard keratinized bulbs when the hair falls our.
Avatar n tn Also as an extra note, my eyebrows always feel oily and wet, im very aware that i have eyebrows. The root and all is falling out. I don’t notice any redness in or around the eyebrows, that’s why the second Derm said that it was definitely not a form of dermatitis. The only medication I’m taking is Minocyline, I'm Taking 50 mg twice a day, I used to have slight acne on my forehead, it has been cleared up for many months.
Avatar f tn just my forehead and all over my cheeks. But not in the areas that seem to most common such as the nose, eyelids, eyebrows or ears etc. Over the last 6 months my face seems to have gone from combination to extremely dry all over, I used to use a very light moisturiser but have now ended with the thickest one I can find because my skin just seems to need more and more moisture. Does any know know what I can try?
Avatar n tn I have to moisturize my whole body daily, and I've always had dandruff (which I use shampoo for and it helps a bit). This winter I started getting really dry itchy skin between my eyebrows, and now it's spread to my eyelids, and my whole forehead. I've tried so many moisturizers, I only wash my face with water, and I don't wear make-up. I also have occasional dry patches on my arms or legs, but not nearly as severe and they go away quicker. I cannot seem to keep this area moisturized!
Avatar m tn I used to have dandruff, but it has essentially cleared after using zinc shampoo a few times a week. But the skin is still greasy under my brow and on my eyelid, which results in hairs being weak and falling out. Any suggestions to clear up the greasy skin? I've tried hydrocortisone cream, but to little avail. Also, the condition seems to worsen after a night of drinking alcohol - is that part of the problem?
Avatar f tn My skin is usually pretty soft and normal, except for some reason it's gotten very DRY and kind of peely, but ONLY around my eyes. Under my eyes and above them but under the eyebrow. Even around the side sort of. It's frustrating and a little painful. Since it's so visible and unnatractive, I'd like to get rid of it ASAP, lol. I haven't had this problem before which is why it's baffling to me.
Avatar n tn My hair is now noticeably thinner in volume and different in shape to me but perhaps not others. It is all over not in patches (as far as I have noticed). My Eyebrows are thinning noticeably also and I notice a lot of eyebrow hair shed each day. Something very strange is that some eyebrow hairs almost seem to be changing color – almost white. I am losing the eyebrow hair from the middle of my face outward.
