Common Questions and Answers about Over the counter scalp acne shampoo


529981 tn?1212853666 I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Avatar f tn This causes the harmless bacteria that live in the scalp to proliferate and feed off the oil, which produces the odor. Second possibility is of a fungal infection causing tinea capitis. It is contagious and can spread direct contact with someone who has the condition, or if you touch contaminated items such as combs, hats, clothing, or similar surfaces. Diagnosis is by clinical examination of the scalp as well as a skin lesion biopsy with microscopic examination.
Avatar n tn I am not aware of any changes in my diet or soaps, If anything I tend towards the dryer, non-moisturising soaps and shampoos. Is there an over-the-counter shampoo for extemely oily hair? this may work.
Avatar n tn when i use a fine toothed comb on the bumps then the bristles just seem to go around the bumps,if i put pressure then it leads to the generation of huge amount of dandruff as mentioned earlier,along with 2-3 mins itch and burn, the bumps are still their with some oil around it,besides i dont use oil or conditioner,neither any gel.
Avatar f tn 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. If the symptoms persist,then it would be best to get it confirmed from a dermatologist.
Avatar f tn have you tried it on the scalp also or is it just to expensive? Is there ANYTHING over the counter that even slightly resemblses that? Thank you for your 'expertese'.
Avatar f tn Then i bought a few different brands of clarifying shampoo (thinking it was build-up) and still the same thing. The oil is def coming from my scalp because at the same time that this happened I started breaking out with acne really bad. I'm 27 years old and have not broken out this bad since puberty. Very strange.
Avatar m tn I will let you know what happens when the month is over. The one thing that helped the most throughout all the things ive tried was a tea tree oil shampoo i bought from vitamins.com. Also keeping hair short and breathable helps (no hats or hoodies). But you def need to get a sample taken to diagnose what type of folliculitis it is.
Avatar f tn I am so frightened and sorry that two people took their lives over the scalp pain. I know from watching my daughter in the prime of her life how devastating it is, and I would never want her to contemplate suicide. I can't say I know what you are going through, because only you know that, but please hang in there and pray when it gets so bad that you might ever (which I pray you won't) consider taking your life.
Avatar n tn I typically do it for a six month period before I force myself to stop, then maybe a few years later I'll find a small bump on my scalp and start the process all over again until I wake up in the morning with blood under my nails or an infection sets in and there is pus. My husband thinks it's disgusting and it is. I have even gone as far as saving all the white scabs.
Avatar m tn For me, the scalp acne didn’t go in 2-3 days or a week. The first whole month was gradual decline (this is very good sign as quicker it goes…quicker it comes back). After completion of a month of treatment I was feeling better. Again, I am not saying the scalp was clear but the result were amazing. But the end of 2 and 3 month, my scalp was 95% clear. I am followed the same routing for 5 months then gradually I have reduce the use of Laprox to 1 day in a week.
Avatar n tn (itchiness, PIMPLES, oily Scalp, and HAIR LOSS). What do you think I should do to stop this over production of oil and also the thinning hair. Thank you! cc (P.S. please ignore my bad grammars! This is my first time asking the question. I have noticed a post by user name 'stupidass', topic 'VERY OILY SCALP ITS RIDICULOUS!', who also have the same problem; but there wasn't an answer to his question, but i really want to know if there's any cure for this insane scalp problems or not!
Avatar n tn I am also perplexed by the statement that selenium sulfide can cause hair loss-after all, you can get Selsun Blue over the counter. Many statements written in package inserts are more alarming than facts would justify. Stopping Accutane after one month makes it very likely that the treatment will fail.
Avatar n tn Right now most of your itching no doubt comes from worrying that you're going bald, which you're not. Get some over-the-counter dandryuff shampoo (tar, zinc), and see a dermatologist who can diagnose, treat, and reassure you. Take care. Dr.
Avatar m tn first, you did not state when you started having the acne/bumps but I wonder if it was around the time you started taking the Testosterone Cypionate injection. It is a class II (common)side effect of the product (I am not saying it is bad product!). The good news is there are ways to treat it other than just anti-biotics. Please buy yourself a quality shampoo that includes coal tar and/or Salicylic Acid.
Avatar n tn I started using a new shampoo and conditioner and a few days later started with the itchy scalp and the bumps on the neck and around the ears. I've stopped using the new Suave shampoo and conditioner with Almond and Shea butter. Anyone else used this shampoo and had an allergic reaction??
Avatar n tn Hi JerseyGirl.... I am SO happy you got my post! I was hoping somebody would see it. Thank you so much for the response!! -Everything you say makes a lot of sense! Except, I am currently taking an oral anitfungal... its generic Lamosil in pill form (darn toenail fell off and I didnt want fungus to grow). Do you think that the pill would treat a scalp fungus??? Also, I have even more unsetteling news. The day I posted that, I went to shower.
Avatar m tn Me too, I got the crap all over me too......itchy scalp driving me nuts, in the eyes, swimming around; between my toes, in my butt, on my skin; on my face........ Lordie! I moved into a city officials house here, in Saratoga Springs, NY, and the women before me was trying to tell me that she had been attacked by bugs, but the landlord was standing right there, and she refrained...well, since then, I was told.
Avatar f tn it did eventually clear up with a dandruff shampoo called Celbulex you can get over the counter. As for the ezcema, I had to take my son to the dermatologist because it was so bad. They usually prescirbe cortizone/steriod cream but you need to get a doc's prescrition or approval to use it because your daughter is still so young. Be proactive and take action now before it gets too bad. My son is now 16 months now nad his condition is so much better now, a few break outs every so often.
Avatar n tn I've tried all the over the counter stuff and nothing is working. I've always been a healthy person with no allergies. I haven't changed any of my products so don't know what the heck is going on!!! I went to my DR on Day 5 and she couldn't quite tell what it was, so she gave me a steroid shot and a perscription for some topical cream. Well, 2 days later, there has been no change!!!
948349 tn?1294383837 The root of the problem??? Is the oil... the bacteria thrive on the oily skin, the oily skin is some acne sufferers response to a lack of vitamin D... probably trying to make the precursor to vitamin D in the skin so it can be turned to vitamin D in the liver. But what happens when you have sufficient levels of vitamin D??? Well, your body no longer needs to make the precursor in the skin. It also makes sense... think about it...
Avatar n tn She also told me to use Neutrogena T-Sal shampoo and Nizoral shampoo (the over-the-counter variety) on alternating days for 8 weeks, and after that to only use the T-Sal and not the Nizoral. Before I left her office, she loaded me down with coupons and free samples for the medicines. Anyway, when I was finished at her office, I went online and did some research on Scalp Psoriasis. The google image search I did scared the **** out of me.
Avatar m tn You are also going to be bending over forward in the shower. The shower is not a good place to find out that bending over makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
Avatar n tn I have pernicious anemia. The itching would almost drive me crazy. PN is dangerous if left undiagnosed. You need a more intensive blood test than just the usual cbc. If you have it, you just need b-12 injections. No amount of pills will help. Just get this checked, as it will ultimately become deadly.
Avatar m tn It is leaking and weeping behind my ear is that it drips down the back of my neck my head as little cracks all over the scalp which hurt so much I have been to see the doctor and been prescribed a course of antibiotics hope that does the trick but it is very severe I also have spots all over my body
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 f tn BIG difference, say 90% gone. However the more I styled it touching the scalp the worse it became. Got suave clarifying shampoo an the "brown" generic listerine at the dollar store, and used suave that night with the mouthwash. About 95% gone. This morning I woke up and my hair feels almost totally back to normal, actually feels like a normal day after washing. So it would appear the excess oil is slowing down.
Avatar f tn I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative. I have had bloodwork done and it was negative. Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing same symptoms.
Avatar n tn It's possible that it is thrush and the treatment is an over the counter antifungal from the pharmacy. Something like the oral tablet fluconazole or some cream such as clotrimazole. But because you have had unprotected sex then there's a chance you've caught a sexually transmitted disease and you may need some antibiotics. But you can't get those without a prescription so you really need to go and see a doctor.
Avatar n tn 1) Putting a special cover over my pillow (a zippered one that goes over the pillow before you put the pillowcase on) and washing it and the pillowcase frequently has helped. 2) Warm compresses 3) A touch of Cetaphil to the dry corner of the eye. Good luck; I am awaiting any more news from all of you.
