Avatar f tn Mine was totally fine until I started my third it's extremely oily and I have patches of flaky skin that are raw red itchy and very oily....does anyone have some clue as to what causes this and what will make it go away!!??
Avatar f tn Second baby was a boy. Had no greasy hair nor oily skin. My third was a boy and had no greasy hair nor oily skin. Im thinking im having a girl because her hormones and mine are raging. I feel so ugly. Ive never had greasy hair nor oily skin or acne when I was a teenager or pregnant except with my first girl. I dont know what to use. My face is sensitive already so I use minimal product. I also usually have beautiful natural skin so I dont use makeup except a little bronze.
Avatar f tn Hello, In oily skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. It can be caused by heredity, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills and hot and humid weather. Oily skin needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness.
Avatar n tn Have you heard of Isolutrol? It is being used to control oily skin. It is made from shark bile. There are a few companies that produce it as a skin balancer, you can't buy it in a store. I have been using it for several weeks and have really noticed a dramatic difference in the amount of oil my skin is producing. I have excessively oily skin, almost to the point of looking "greasy". I just want to know your input of this product.

Avatar m tn I thought that the patch did not go away but 3rd-4th day the dry patch started peeling out and I see brand new natural skin again. Its awesome and I want to thank to the guy who wrote garlic as a cure for my rough dry itchy patch of skin on my finger.
Avatar f tn I have suddenly gotten oily hair on the crown of my head even right after showering, and no matter how much I was my hair it will not go away. It has lasted about 2 weeks now, and seems to be getting worse. I have never had extremely oily hair, and I know it is not because I am washing my hair incorrectly. Has any one else had this happen, and how long does it usually last. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn I don't have especially oily skin. I'd classify my skin as normal to combination. Sometimes I have dry patches on the sides of my face or the middle of my forehead. Sometimes I can get a bit oily on my chin, hairline, and obviously my nose. But I do not notice a lot of excess oil - ever. Even if I do end up going a day without washing my face, it will only be mildly greasy/oily. I also do not have very acne prone skin.
Avatar n tn Actually think it caused more breakouts and made my skin more oily. What does the Clinique toner do? Is this a topical cleanser? When is it used and how? Should I also use and estringent? I've never tried one but have heard it might help. So I could do the glycolic peels myself?? I will check out ebay for it. I'm sure the cost difference from using a esthitician is quite worth it. Fingers crossed for some health care assistance w/the upcoming election.
Avatar f tn I cant thank you enough for taking the time to respond. I also believe less is more, when I stopped using harsh cleansers, toners & serums, my skin got better and less oily on the whole. I will definitely keep dermabrasion in mind, although my scarring is minimal I swear even older scars seem to be getting larger as I age so I will inevitably need resurfacing one day soon here. I'm happy to know that the dermabrasion is helpful and doesn't stimulate it or make it worse. Thank you again!
Avatar f tn After doing some research, I believe it is an over production and build up of sebum on the scalp. I have had acne problems, have rosacea, and my skin and hair is very oily. I found balancing shampoos on line that are supposed to prevent sebum build up. Aveda is one of them, but I haven't tried it. Sebum: substance with an oily consistency produced by the sebaceous glands. It lubricates hair, is an antifungal/antibacterial, and imparts waterproofing properties to the skin.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 15 years old and have normal skin, not dry, not oily. I recently developed(about 4 months ago)full blown acne that stretches across the bottom of my face. This includes my chin, and the sides of my mouth (full of red mountains). My acne consists of mostly whiteheads, red growing pimples, and red pimples that i have popped, combining together to make the red and white mountains of my face.
Avatar n tn It will get dry and crack with little red crack hurt like mad the cracks going around look like strech marks , my sack gets covered and gets flacking dead skin .
Avatar n tn My girlfriend and I had a rash for about four or five months and after some prayer we stumbled across some information that made sense. There are lots of heavy metals in our air right now from the marshmellow snakes in the sky. When you eat gluten, these metals which we are breathing in are pushed out from our skeletal and muscular matter through our skin, which is what causes the itching that everyone is experiencing. Start taking borax.
Avatar f tn I stop taking the flax seed oil pills and about 4 or 5 days later or so, the oily hair goes away.
Avatar m tn I have very oily skin. My T-zone areas are especially oily. I've noticed that underneath my chin, my cheeks, around my nose and mouth, my skin produces a strong rancid cheese type smell. It's especially prominent after eating anything fried or greasy. As a result I have drastically stop consuming fried foods. The odor still remains though. Not matter how many times I wash my face, the odor is still there. My skin is oily but "clear." No black heads, white heads or pimples.
Avatar m tn From what I understand is that I should shower more because of my oily skin and hair, but if I do that the bumps get worse and so does the dryness of my scalp. I shower EVERY morning, so it is not a hygiene issue. I get the occasional pimple on my face due to my oily skin, but I have never had sever acne. We live in Wisconsin so we do have the heat running, but this issue occurs all year long. It just seems that no matter what I try there is more pain and itchiness!!
Avatar f tn I have never had any problems with oily skin or oily hair ever. I wash my hair daily and condition. I have not changed my daily regimen in 2 years One thing I have tried was applied Shower to Shower powder to my hair before going to bed and washed out in the morning (not the sexiest looking thing at night but it helps). It drastically reduced the oil, but came back 2 days later. The only thing I worry about is clogging the glands that are producing the oil, so I don't do it daily...
Avatar f tn does anyone know what it may be and why it won't go away??? I'm even embarrased to go outside and I won't.
232264 tn?1191252080 yes i do touch my face alot only because it just bothers me and i constantly feel the need to wipe away dead skin or the oils away i know thats bad but its a just sux cuz on pills my skin was better now i'm clean my sinus and my skin are bad just like they were before i took pills so i guess i'm getting back to normal blah...fladdict i am definitely interested in a skin care regime i dont use any soap on my face all i really use is water and when its bad hydrocortizone cream...
Avatar f tn I have some brise like things on my face. I cant get them to go away. I thought I was allergic to my furry pillow, but it doesn't seem to be the problem. No itching, no irritation. What could it be?
Avatar f tn Well, I hope your skin problems go away soon. It would be great if they go completely away to the point that you don't even have the minor problem you had before tx. Hey never know...maybe interferon was pulling it all out of your system and your going to be free of it completely once and for all very soon. That would be great news. Something for us all to agree in prayer for you. Thanks again Jim, appreciate it!! I thank all of you guys for being here for me at this time in my life.
Avatar n tn The only thing that seemd to help the redness was steroids in a cream, but I was informed by my doctor that long term steroid use isn't good for the skin. I have read about Vitamin B5 to reduce oily skin, but not sure what that would help. I want to solve my problem from the source, and I know it has to be all connected in some way.
Avatar n tn Although, I must admit, my hair was too dark and I used Dawn dw liquid and then Pantene Clarifying Shampoo to try and fade the color faster - both pretty stressful to hair. Any ideas from folks with the same problem? Does this go away?? This discussion is related to <a href=''>suddenly oily hair that won't correct</a>.
Avatar m tn I have noticed that just after i wash the tacky skin is reddish in color and then the color goes away after it has dried for a couple of hours! Washing with soaps don't help at all. Even the souls of my feet are becoming tacky and sticky when I shower! i am really getting scared because everytime I shower it seems to worsen! I can't seem to get clean! has anyone had similer symptoms and had any luck treating it!
Avatar f tn I use a green kitchen scrubber on the palms of my hands and soles of my feet but it doesn't get the film off. My skin does not absorb anything; water, lotions. Soap seems to not wash this off my skin yet at the same time seems to stick to the film. My hair is also affected. It does not absorb anything, the soap seems to stick to it and not rinse off. Same with conditioner. And my hair is either falling out or breaking off, I'm not sure which. I also have a coating on my toungue.
Avatar m tn Fast forward two years, with the problem coming and going over that time. Recently, I began having scabbing that is very painful and will not go away. It was more crusty feeling, and my nasal passages felt very dry. I tried picking them out, they'd come right back. I tried lubricating the areas, using coconut oil, neosporin, aquaphor, non-petroleum based jelly, I even slept with a humidifier on, nothing worked beyond temporary relief.
Avatar f tn Same here! I understand what you are going through. I am thirteen and have extremely oily skin. There is a spot on the right side of my mouth that just wont go away either! I have tried benzoyl peroxide and all kinds of products like you, but it just won't go away. It has been about a month :( Erythromycin and clindamycin; are they too strong for my skin?
