Metrogel for seborrheic dermatitis

Common Questions and Answers about Metrogel for seborrheic dermatitis


Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed as having (mild) rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis, for which I’ve been prescribed MetroGel and Noritate cream to use simply as I feel necessary. This obviously gives me a lot of discretion in how I approach treatment for myself.
1153266 tn?1262127735 If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist and get seborrheic dermatitis and dermatitis 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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I do have dandruff in my hair. I was diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis by my dermatologist at the age of 21. Not knowing any better when I was younger I tried everything over the counter for acne, but I didn't have acne. I definitely do not have rosacea because I never got pustules. I have tried: Metrogel Finacea Desonate Nizoral Shampoo on my face head and shoulders on my face and Desonide lotion. the only thing that works is desonide lotion.
Avatar n tn Hello, For such symptoms the possibilities of perioral dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis need to be ruled out. Perioral dermatitis like acne is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. It mostly effects women and appear around the nose, mouth and eyes. Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.
Avatar n tn I also have flaking on the forehead, and cheeks, but only redness on the nose. I was first diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis (my father has it) and treated with Nizoral and Aclovate. They helped with the redness but the flaking persisted. Now the dermatologist has changed the diagnosis to rosacea or an early stage of rhinophyma and prescribed a couple of days on erthromycin and Metrogel, which I've been using for about a week with some resolution of the redness, but it still persists.
Avatar f tn I am glad to hear your little boy is doing a little better. I have 2 little girls. One turns 4 at the end of this month and my baby is 2 and a half now. My seborrheic dermatitis is extremely embarrassing. When I got it at 12 I used to get made fun of for it all the time because of that I have really low self esteem. Experimenting with different prescriptions, OTC medications and doctors has gotten to be so expensive.
Avatar m tn If you have any suggestions please let me know. I tried metrogel for a couple days but I stopped because I thought it was making it worse but I hear that you have to try it for at least a week. Thanks!
Avatar n tn The ketoconazole did absolutely nothing, and i used it for about a month straight. Same for the sulfur and metrogel. The dandruff shampoos did nothing as well, and a few of them irritated my skin and made it worse. Hydrocortisone 1% helped, but I have heard horror stories about people using cortisone on their face for long term problems.
Avatar n tn Can't bring myself to just wipe it off though, got to use water. And yeah, I am using Cetaphil cream too. Still have seborrheic dermatitis, nothing helps, but a long shot from last summer. Voila, the year of the "Skin", has somewhat past. I am still getting different little rashes over my body, nothing earth shaking, but keeping the Dermatologist busy. I couldn't read any posts for almost 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn I also have Seborrheic Dermatitis and possibly Rosacea, mixed with the psoriasis. One doctor dx it as sebopsoriasis. Some suggest there could be a yeast infection involved and therefore some treat with topical or systemic anti-yeast meds. If you haven't already, you should see a dermo and get a scrape examined under a microsope to check for yeast. Yeast runs rampant when your're immuno suppressed and could even be a factor with your sun sensitivty. BTW have you eliminated Lupus?
Avatar n tn I expect by next spring to be in good enough shape to laser all those broken blood vessels. Seborrheic dermatitis??? making small progress there too. Still using Head and Shoulders, and doing the same on those areas as on the Rosacea. The Loprox cream turned out to be a disaster, so both, cream and shampoo found their way into the garbage. Still running around with an umbrella, but the face mask has been washed and folded away...hopefully never to be used again.
Avatar n tn Like I mentioned, OTC Rezamid works for pimples. For a few months I was alternating Rezamid and Metrogel in the evenings, with Clindamycin and Sebanil in the mornings. Cetaphil moisturizer in the day if I went outside, no moisturizer at night. Right now I'm using nothing, not even moisurizers, just the Cetaphil cleanser 2X day, so we shall see. I think I saw some of the diabetes discussion but didn't have enough energy to delve into another "condition".
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar n tn H-E-L-P!!! I've had this uncontrollable itch on my outer labia's for the past 7 years. Everyday I itch, I feel like a freak because I am always scratching (not in public). My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none.
