How long does seborrheic dermatitis last

Common Questions and Answers about How long does seborrheic dermatitis last


Avatar f tn Or this can be side effect of acne gel I was using. I also I have heard that seborrheic dermatitis happens due to yeast infection. But how is it possible If I wash my face twice daily regularly and apply anti boitic lotion on it.? I don't have flakes in or around eyebrows or eye lids.I have it around chin alot and few on nose line.
Avatar n tn The condition has lasted for about 20 years and was first diagnosed as psoriasis. Only last year was seborrheic dermatitis diagnosed (after biopsy). The rash has always come back within a day or two after I stop using whatever med I was/am using. For the first 12 years or so, it was corticosteroid creams. Then Dovonex ointment, which worked very well for a while before it seemed to stop working. Now for a year and a half, Protopic ointment 0.
Avatar m tn 2) If I use the hydrocortisone cream on my face as soon as the redness appears, will this lesson the inflammation of redness and flakiness and will my skin clear up without breaking out? 3) Will Seborrheic Dermatitis eventually go away and if so how long does it take? 4) Does alcohol effect the Seborrheic Dermatitis? Any replies would be very much appreciated.
Avatar n tn So my derm diagnosed me with seborrheic dermatitis, they gave me all sorts of shampoos to try but none work. I've had this for months now, and finally after expermimenting with different diets i found that food was not causing it. The seborrheic dermatitis that is all over my hair is also all over my face and now spreading to the back of my ears and side of my neck. I finally concluded the reason why i get it. It seems everytime i was my hair even if i use just water i get a flair up.
Avatar n tn I had a very mild case of seborrheic dermatitis last year. Minor amount of flaking in my eyebrows and also a bit on both sides of my nose (ie: the T area of my face was slightly red and flakey). After reading somewhere that seborrheic dermatitis may be caused by a fungus, I started using the Head and Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo (which contains pyrithrione zinc). I massaged it into my skin twice a day for a few minutes while in the shower and then rinsed it off.
Avatar n tn I would not be worried about this, if I had not read up a bit on seborrheic dermatitis and learned that it can be a sign of an underlying case of HIV. This of course effected me. (I know SD is mostly a scalp/dandruff thing but it can affect armpits/groin/behind ears as well, per what I've been reading.) I guess what I'm asking is, does what I have sound like SD and not just eczema? And if so, how often is SD a sign of HIV? Sorry for melding all of this into one post.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like perioral dermatitis only. Seborrheic dermatitis could have been another possibility but it does not explain the pimples and acne. Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil(non perfumed) should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.
Avatar m tn It also sounds like you think that you believe you have seborrheic dermatitis and wonder if that could be a manifestations of HIV that you did not know you have. IF you have seborrheic dermatitis, that is not an indication of HIV.
Avatar n tn how much time does it take to get removed from one's body if he/she is having it from past 5 years
Avatar m tn I have tested for every STD including HIV and HTLV, this was negative after 17months. My current struggles are white coated tongue with teethmarks at the border. Severe headache which is much better now, but have a moving crawling sensation 24/7 in scalp/brain. Balanitis and peeling hand and soles. My next stop will be at a dermatoligist on 2 dec, to se if I have actually a yeast infection or staph.
Avatar n tn I am 50 years old, premenopausal, and have had no skin problems except seborrheic dermatitis in my college years. I do not have hay fever or allergies. I was not on any medications at the time this all started. Any ideas? I have asked my doctor for a referral to yet another dermatologist, but it will probably be a month or two until I get an appointment. I am appalled that after all these doctor visits and medications, I still wound up with scars.
Avatar n tn At this point the cause of seborrheic dermatitis is vaguely known. Malassezia yeast has been associated with seborrheic dermatitis but the exact cause of the condition is yet to be defined. Given this, what you have is still hair loss with scalp disease as dandruff is a disease. Your physician is treating you in the line of a fungal infection hence, the intake of oral medications. Seborrheic dermatitis may recur and persist given the right triggers.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,confirming a diagnosis is tough but it can be atopic dermatitis,perioral dermatitis or cheilitis.Although it does not sound like herpes,but it has to be totally ruled out. "Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever. Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn i read that it takes a while for other symptoms to show. how long does it take???? how specific is the butterfly rash? could it be any other skin disease?
Avatar m tn This will be the last answer. Your recurring folliculitis and seborrheic dermatitis are not a reason to wrorrry in relationship to the exposure that you have described. There will be no further replies.
Avatar f tn No, you absolutely could NOT be infected. As for the seborrheic dermatitis, see a dermatologist. They have stuff these days to treat it............... If you've avoided having any sort of sexual relationships due to fear about HIV, you seriously need to get psychological help for your anxiety. Your irrational fear has stolen six years of your life. Get yourself educated about HIV and stop wasting time.
Avatar n tn Before my present girlfriend of 14 years, i hadn't had sex for 2 years prior and that was with my ex wife of 7 years, however I have recently learned that she had many, many partners before me and the last one before me was just about 6 months prior to when we started to have sex. How long does it take for an std to show up if you do have it.
Avatar m tn Hello, These white scales can be due to seborrheic dermatitis, smegma, fungal infection, eczema, scoriasis or lichen sclerosis. Even psoriasis needs to be ruled out. Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin.It is thought that psoriasis occurs when the immune system overreacts, causing inflammation and flaking of skin. I suggest you to get a biopsy skin done to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I believe I have heard, however, that a drug reaction allergic rash with hives can last a long time. It has never happened to me. It is a true allergic reaction you are having, and it's unavoidable that some people will react allergically to some antibiotics. This means you are allergic to penicillin antibiotics. You will need to let your pharmacy and all your doctors put this in your records.
Avatar m tn I was just diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, 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.
Avatar n tn I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance to tide me over until my test next week so I can eat and sleep in the meantime (god knows I'll be a wreck waiting for the results). How long does it usually take to get the results? I hate the internet, I spend hours self-diagnosing while at work. Thanks again! Reading and responding to all these messages is truly kind of you!
Avatar n tn Hello, Other reason for such a rash can be due to seborrheic dermatitis. 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. Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches. Please get it examined from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn i've had progressively worsening pruritis for the past 2 months. i've also recently had a bout with seborrheic? dermatitis (at least my doc thought that's what it was), and several bouts of poison ivy. all my labs are currently normal, altho' my ggtp has always been higher than norm (117 at the most) and i haven't had it tested in a while. how do i deal with this (the pruritis)? by the way i also have chronic neutropenia, last lab values were 1310 - norm 1500+.
Avatar m tn Hello, One possibility that is coming to my mind is of seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas of the body. It is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease is aggravated by sweating and humidity. Oral antifungal drugs and immunomodulators such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are used in very severe cases.
163305 tn?1333672171 Wyntre, you made me laugh. I've always had super thick, very dry hair, except for now. I only wash it every 5 days or so. My shampoo and rinse are whatever says its for dry, damaged hair. I could try the tree oil. I like the hot oil idea. Thanks for the suggestions.
Avatar n tn More like seborrheic dermatitis,does respond to hydrocortisone but recurrent.Ketoconazole creme may help some.Do consult your doc.
