Eczema on eyebrows

Common Questions and Answers about Eczema on eyebrows


Avatar m tn Is it possible you have eczema? I have it in my eye brows mostly on the insides and slightly between the brows, so it tends to be red in that area.
Avatar n tn i have a mild case of eczema on my face but most strongly on my eyebrow area. it is very red and dry, and only allows a few eyebrow hairs to grow. i would like to have full eyebrows ans i get bullied for not having any. what an i use to make the hairs grow and/or stop the eczema? i am a 16 year old boy and have had this problem for as long as i can remember.
Avatar n tn I do have facial edema which fluctuates from hard, to pitting, to space which seems just air filled. At first I thought my eyebrows were sinking because the skin layer with the root was much lower than the surface layer(s) and the hair remained in interstitial space. What I have determined though is that the (thick) skin also seems to be rapidly regenerating and growing over the brows--this is how they first started to "disappear" back in February.
Avatar m tn I have eczema in my eyebrow/upper cheek on the left side of my face. 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 n tn Hi Doc, I am being treated for Seborrheic dermatitis which started around 4 months ago. The area that is heaviest in rashes are the chin and nose, with a slight touch on each ear and over both eyebrows. My blood tests showed no infections, and no stds. I've been with one partner for over a decade. I am told that this condition is stubborn. I've been prescrived prednisolone in a low dose, Steroid cremes, and ketoconozole.
Avatar n tn I have an almost hive like rash on or just above my eyebrows and on my temple. I have had small ones on my cheeks just below my eyes. They rarely itch, and seem to throb in hot weather or when I am exercising etc. I've been told before that it is a fungus and it seems to only happen durring the summer. Based on other discussions I am going to try - no citric foods and no yeast. PS. I do smoke, but didn't last summer and I had no rash. Not sure if I ate less citric foods or yeast.
Avatar m tn I have a rash between my eyebrows. I was on an antacid, protoix, from August to late Feburary. One the rash started I have stopped the antacids. Went to a dermatologist in late feburary that dismissed it as acne and gave me a prescription for some face cream(clindamycin) and an antibotic called tytreciclyn. I have not taken the oral antibotic because in early January my dentist gave me powerful antibotic for tooth extraction. The rash at time may flare up depending what I eat or take.
Avatar f tn My husbands scalp and eyebrows flake all over everything! Dandruff shampoo does not work. He use to get large red rash spots all over his torso and scalp when he was in extreme heat, now he flakes from the scalp and eyebrows all the time, but the red rashes have not shown up in a couple of years. I dont know if the two problems could be related. Help please.
Avatar f 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. It 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.
Avatar n tn Recently I have had a recurrence of eczema. This started on my forehead as a dry, itchy patch. W/i four days, the itch had spread across my forehead. By this time, dry patches of skin were flaking off. Medication of one month is Elidel & Aclovate. My forehead still has scales on it. My forehead, while patches are drying, looks plastic. I have developed patches under my chin and now behind the ears. This also itches. There are very tiny bumps around my ear & over my eyelids.
Avatar n tn I do have eczema on my face around my nose, eyebrows, and forehead, and at the time that this occured, my eczema has been going on strong, and my asthma has also been acting up. I just moved from the bay area to las vegas, which is very hot and dry, and also the water softner in my house had just broke around the same time this started to occur, so the water leaves my skin real dry.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I am a 26 year old white male, with a healthy weight/height, in reasonably good shape. For almost a year now I have had really strange (strange to me) skin issues. I came back home from vacation with a fever of 105. I had been outdoors alot at various times of the day/night over the Thanksgiving holidays in rural Mississippi. My Doctor prescribed a Zithromax antibiotic pack and instantly I reacted with near anaphalctic shock.
Avatar m tn I am itchy all over my face I have always had clear skin all my life but now I have noticed that I feel some movement on my face especially my nose upper lip eyebrows eye lashes & I have white heads inside my nose & in my chin what could this be?
Avatar m tn About 4 months the middle section of hair in each of her eyebrows started thinning. Now it looks like some one removed the hair in a straight horizontal line through the middle of each eyebrow and now the edges of the eyebrow are thinning also. There is no redness are signs of infection and she appears fine in all other ways. Can this be part of her body preparing to start menstruation? Or should I be more concerned?
Avatar n tn I have this situation on my face that started about a month ago. It started on my forehead around my eyebrows. Then worked around my eyes and onto my cheeks. Every morning when I would get out of the shower, my skin would feel real dry and flaky. I noticed that those areas would get real red. I contacted my doctor and she gave me Prednisone or predisone which ever you spell it. I was taking 20 mg a day for about a week and a half.
Avatar f tn eyebrows falling out 2. nummular eczema (coin shaped) which started on left foot one month ago and now one month later i am finding new small patches cropping up all over body 3. It feels like my skin is crawling. After I get out of the shower it gets worse. 4. getting a crop of small hives usually in the exact same places that appear and disappear (on stomach and back) and usually I've seen them when getting out of the shower.
Avatar n tn becase it would come and go we began to get worried, we also noticed that the rash was not just on his forehead but also on his cheeks and temples. last month noticed that it was taking longer to heal then before so we went back to the derm. she said stop medication, and just lotion. so for a week we watch the rash get redder and our son get itchier. we noticed thatthe second we applied lanolinh/lotion the patches would redden and when he woke up in the morning hisface seemed less red.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been experiencing rashes above both eyebrows, in and around the side of the nose, and throughout the beard. Also, one small round rash on the left foot. The rashes have come gradually, and have been around for atleast 3 months. I have used prescription steroid creams, and now are finishing oral ketoconozole. All blood tests show good health, and no infections or diseases. A skin biopsy shows sebborrheic dermatitis. All meds so far have been ineffective.
Avatar n tn Hello, Redness around nose and eyebrows can be due to contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema or rosacea. Even the butterfly rash in SLE presents around the nose and cheeks. 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).
Avatar m tn Recently the redness and flakiness have progressed to cover my cheeks, eyebrows, middle of forehead. The itchiness is now subsided and I am left with very noticeable hypopigmentation in these affected areas. There is a sharp line on both cheeks demarcating the normal area from the affected area. I wash with cetaphil face wash and afterwards the areas are extremely dry and flaky. I'm thinking its either eczema or seborrheic dermatitis? Any advice would help!
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be seborrheic dermatitis or eczema. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Allergic reaction can occur to strong soaps, Solvents, chemicals, certain foods, food additives, plants, metals, cosmetics, even urine and faeces of some animals (dust mites). Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
Avatar n tn I felt some tension between my eyebrows and began massaging from the bridge of my nose upwards. I increased the pressure and massaged for about 5 minutes. Suddenly, I felt a deep burning sensation and was surprised to see a fiery red spot at the bridge of my nose. The pain continued and the next day a scab began to form. Is it normal for this to happen? Will this scab create a scar? I have always had lower blood pressure and low ferritin levels. Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn i have a persistant rash on the sides of my nostrils and often eyebrows. there is itching and white scales. eyebrows have tiny pimples. i often get blimishes on nose and chin. have been treated by md for fungus infection usually cortizone. rash recurrs if i don't use med. daily. is it eczema or fungus. what treatment?
Avatar n tn I have very few eyebrows, and the skin where they should be my skin is usually red, occaisonally a bit dry. It doesn't itch at all, and doesn't flake. I have never been diagnosed with eczema, although my elbows and forarms do sometimes get very dry and a bit flakey. It has been like this since I was a child I am told, and was wondering if there is anything I can do to bring down the redness, and ultimately, get my eyebrows growing back a bit! Many thanks.
Avatar m tn I have had some red patches on my face that flake skin. It started out on my nose, but has since slowly spread to my chin, eyebrows, and cheeks. These patches are itchy from time to time and will bleed if i scratch them. It flares up, and then recedes back. The dermatologist said it was something that there is no treatment for (I cannot remember the exact word) but I am looking for a second opinion.
Avatar n tn I do get dry (scaly sometime) skin under my eyebrows (sort of above my upper eyelid but not on it) and dry skin on the sides of my nose. I can get dry patches on my forehead as well but they seems to have eased since changing to Head and Shoulders sensitive shampoo. I have always had dry/sensitive skin on my face and use E45 daily on it and I can tolerate that mostly. What I can’t work out is why it always happens on a Thursday!
Avatar f tn My lastest condition though is causing me so much stress. It started with extremely dry patches on my face (around the eyebrows, nose and neck) which then started flaking. Then those patches would become bright red and extememly itchy so bad that i couldnt leave the house. The doctor just prescribed antibiotics and cortisone cream. Although the antibiotics helped as soon as i stopped taking them the patches returned.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am a 20 y/o college student with a history of psoriasis on my scalp but recently I have developed skin flakes on my forehead, between my eyes, in my eyebrows, and in my beard. It is much like that on the scalp (which is controlled fine by moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.) This, however, comes off when rubbed especially easy after a shower. My skin is very sensitive, however these areas are not inflamed or puffy just "flaky.
3183132 tn?1344616643 Hi! Recently patches of skin on my: chin, cheeks, forehead, the area in between my eyebrows, and the area underneath my nose (above my mouth) have become pinkish-red, dry, sore, and inflamed. I've put Neosporin and moisturizer in all of these spots, but it has no effect. It always hurts, and I can't figure out what's wrong! It looks almost like a rash, but I'm really not sure. Thanks!
Avatar n tn My scalp and eyebrows are the worst, i know its dermtitis of some sort as my dermatologist in our one meeting looked at it and gave me nizoral for it, the problem i have is it will get red/flakey/itchy so i will shower to relieve it once i have had my shower i can feel this sticky glue like liquid seeping out all over my scalp, this liquid with dry and form lumps of flakes on my scalp and then i lose hair in those areas.
