529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations.
Avatar n tn For the last 4 years, the older one has had a severe scalp rash that resembles acne, with small pustules and overall very red skin, with the majority of the pustules on the back of the head and neck. In the last year, the younger one has developed a scalp condition with large yellowish itchy, oily flakes and patches over the entire scalp, most noticeably around the hairline and above the ears.
Avatar f tn I have had problem of recurring spots/boils which are sometimes puss filled, that bleeds too. Theyre all over the scalp and base of the head. Pictures attached. The outbreak of them is uncertain, independent of my diet and no matter what medicated shampoo I use. I still get them very often. Pictures attached for reference. Please help.
Avatar m tn HAd a history of acne as a teenager and was on doxycyline for years and minocycline, even septrin, but ended up on accutane which cleared the acne. Nowadays I don't have facial acne anymore just the folliculutis on scalp only. It's really itchy, uncomfortable and sore when it's bad but I know how to control it.
1548538 tn?1293875433 I found this website through a google for "sand on scalp", and I found a journal entry from someone here at that I wanted to draw attention to on this forum. Everyone on that journal suffers form the same issue I do. For the past two years, I have what feel and appear to be like grains of sand on my scalp.
Avatar f tn I wanted to be able to wear make up and didn't like my skin always peeling. Then I got married and was unable to do anything about my acne because I got pregnant. After I had my first daughter I went to the dermatologist and she really couldn't tell me what kind of acne I had on my nose nor could she give me any type of clear of answer of how to fix it with the exception of that retin A stuff which I couldn't use because I was nursing my daughter...
1040647 tn?1253043655 It is not inflamed, just small red pimples and there not pustulents like acne should be. I have pictures and i am worried they are chicken pox , altough i had them before I heard you could get them again. Im worried because I only got it 3 days ago.
Avatar n tn Hi Try to observe the scalp condition and this time do frequently shampoo your hair. Vigorous shampooing may be able to help. I would think that this may be a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis. If that is the case, it may be caused by stress and weather. Seborrheic dermatitis has also been associated with fungal or yeast infections. Try to frequently and vigorously wash your hair. This may help alleviate the conditions.
Avatar n tn I also have a rash on my neck and scalp. It started out as a very itchy scalp, particularly behind the ears. My whole family inspected each other for lice - nothing. No one else has the scalp itch. A few days of scratching and wondering, it started spreading down onto my neck with very itchy bumps appearing. My husband has re-inspected me for lice several times.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar f tn When male hormones get too high compared to the female hormones, oily skin and hair and acne (especially acne along the jawline and back, etc.) and hairloss can result. Now, it's possible the gluten free diet might help straighten your hormones out. The gluten, when not tolerated, causes deficiencies in practically all areas. All the food and nutrients that we swallow ultimately feed our hormones and everything else that goes on in the body.
Avatar m tn jpg At first I wasn't that much worried but after several days they seem to increase in number, starting from 1 bump in my forehead + 1 bump in my cheek. Today I can start to feel them in my scalp as well around 4-5 bumps + several small bumps on my lower cheek towards the neck area + 1 in upper chest. They don't itch or anything, although sometimes it stings when I sweat at the gym. And after taking a shower it feels really dry.
Avatar n tn now i have 2 white spots on my stomach from popping 2 of them. I have also little super tiny pimples on my scalp from time to time. They are im guessing the same thing. kind of itchy. dont really scab but i cant feel like the ones on the scalp are already sort of an open wound pimple. Ive researched and went to the derma and he said it was just acne. which its not. ive never suffered from this ever. only since march. cant find anything online. gonna have to go to another derma.
948349 tn?1294383837 This isn't a question... just a possible solution to acne that I think EVERY acne sufferer should at least try. The answer? Vitamin D. I know, I honestly can't believe something so simple as the "skin vitamin" could possibly cure my acne. I have been taking about 1000 IU a day, every day for the past month now. Both with my breakfast and with my supper... and ACNE IS GONE!!!! I am 25 years old and have had acne since I was 14... and for once no more acne!
Avatar n tn I read other postings on folliculitis, but I didn't see one that addresses it on the scalp. I am 40 and for at least the last 5 years I have had small isolated bumps on the scalp that are annoying and I scratch them a lot, often times breaking the skin which forms scabs that later I pick at. My brother told me that I do this in public and I'm not even aware of that I'm scratching. The bumps come and go in about a week's time.
1113779 tn?1269167331 I have had this skin condition going on 4 years now, and it has gotten progressively worse. I have it on my scalp, ears, back and face. My ears are blistered badly, and get scabs on them a lot. I have bald spots on my scalp where it has affected me. I have been to several doctors, and have just about given up. Some doctors have said it is tinea, and another said it was psoriasis, because my SED rate was elevated which could have meant rheumatoid arthritis.
Avatar n tn So I've never really had acne problems before. I scar really easy, so I try to be careful when I do get any kind of acne or skin problem. Just recently, I've notice these..."pimple" like things. They're had to describe, alls i know is that they've turned into "holes" in my skin. It's embarassing, but there is quite a few. I have one on my breast, like three on my shoulder, and more on my butt. I'm not sure what to do, and it doesn't seem as if they are healing.
Avatar n tn I have been fighting scalp acne for over 2 years, very annoying & embarassing when I go to the hairdresser. I have been to the dermatologist for this problem but the Tx course he prescribes is Tetracyline or other Cycline antibiotics & these cause me awful nausea & vomiting. I have tried various shampoos & have found that Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree oil shampoo & tea tree conditioner give me the best results.
Avatar f tn My daughter just turned 10. Last month she developed what I thought was acne. At first there was one small white dot. The area is growing in size. It is hard, white, no redness. The area is just below her eye, and now appers to have spread to two spots. I thought it might be a wart, but after looking at pictures, don't think it is. The two spots are about an inch apart from each other. I also went to the pharmacy to get wart med., and she said it didn't look like a wart to her??
Avatar m tn The affected areas are limited to the crowns on my scalp. The symptoms started with the scalp in these areas being sore, red and the skin would often bleed. This changed about 2 years ago where the bleeding stopped and the hair started tufting and hair loss in affected areas occurred. There also appears to be scarring / thickening of the scalp in the affected areas.
1405866 tn?1281165728 // But, I honestly don't know for sure. I just don't know who to ask or where to turn to. Please help.
Avatar m tn She gave me a Tretinoin prescription for acne in general. That definitely seems to help with my complexion but not with the spot on my nose. So I guess I have a few questions: 1.) Is there anything I can do to clear up my nose. I've attached pictures if that helps at all. 2.) Will an actual dermatologist be able to tell me anything more? I waited three months for an appointment and didn't find out I wasn't seeing a dermatologist until I got to the office.
Avatar n tn Then i started feeling it on the back of my head on my scalp under my hair. now months later it's much worse and in several areas of my body. I have several bumps on the palms of my hands that peel off. Any injury i get heals and then while it's in a scar form starts drying out and itching, basically being very uncomfortable. i also have spots all along my legs and a large one bellow my right butt cheek.
Avatar n tn The closest thing I found on the web was lipedematous scalp, related to the subcutaneous fatty tissue of he sclap. I haven't found any pictures and research seems very limited and repetitve of limited findings. You may have seen several actors on TV (I have only noticed it with black males) that have the same condition, perhaps not as pronouned as you and I but it's probably more common than the medical profession realizes....
Avatar n tn My daughter is 13 years old and had 2 moles "shave" biopsied on her last visit to the dermatologist for acne. They were on her scalp. One of them came back as "atypical" and the dermotologist used the term "severe" and "I think we caught this just in time". Her appt. was changed from one week to three weeks away so the dermatologist could see her and not the PA. We had already waited over 3 weeks for the results.
Avatar n tn I've had a scalp condition called acne necrotica miliaris for about 6 years and my scalp is also very very oily and I have very thin hair. I've been taking antibiotics to keep it under control but I would love to get off of them since I've taking them for acne since I was 19 and have had countless yeast infections. Would accutane help my scalp problem? I did take accutane in 1991 for acne and it worked beautifully for about 5 years.
Avatar n tn That's taken care of the the scalp itch. Both of those things kill the yeast and return the acid mantle to your scalp so your pH is returned. Now, for the facial rash, he prescribed 2 creams which I mix 50/50; 1 is Desonide 0.05% and the other is Ketoconazole 2%. The 1st is a cortizone cream to stop the redness and itch; the second is an anti-fungal. Antibiotics wipe out all bacteria, good and bad in your intestines and that's how yeast takes over.
630458 tn?1223263163 Hi. Diet has not been proven to affect acne. Acne is caused when the sebeaceous (oil) glands are stimulated by androgens (male hormones found in both male and female bodies). Frustratingly for doctors and patients alike we don't know why some people get acne and others don't, some people are just more sensitive to the effects of androgens. Female patients are required to use 2 forms of birth control whilst on Accutane.

Avatar f tn I do have some age spots and my dermatopathologist biopsied and burned off a spot in my hairline in front of my ear a few months ago but it was bright red and the pre-cancerous sun spot. He also removed a keratin bump from my scalp but only because I asked (my hairbrush kept hitting it). It was biopsied and confirmed to be 'nothing'. I am very fair skinned, grew up in the south and am 62.
