Seborrheic dermatitis and baking soda

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis and baking soda


Avatar m tn I'd suggest washing the sink out with baking soda and water or vinegar to get the sink clean before putting the water in.
Avatar f tn I went to my campus doctor for a rash on my face, and she told me it was seborrheic dermatitis and that it was easily treatable. She gave me a face wash and oral pills (doxycycline). The pills made my rash go away, but now I have severe acne (maybe periorficial dermatitis). It has been over a month and my acne seems to be getting worse, as well as spreading. My campus would not get another appointment until the beginning of November, and I do not have a car, so I am forced to wait.
Avatar f tn After trying scores of prescription creams, natural rememdies such as neem, tea tree oil, milk of magnesia, baking soda...even taking oral Diflucan, oral serioids and having sterioid injections under affected area, I finally found something to clear up my Seborrheic Dermatitis! It's an ointment called Lucky Tiger Ointment. My dad learned of it in the 60s from an MD who worked as a barber before he became a doctor.
Avatar n tn that come up all around my chin. The only thing that removes them is using something alkaline - like baking soda or milk of magnesia. However, they come back in 2-3 days time. I have been diagnosed with Perioral dermatitis, Seborrheic dermatitis, Angular cheilitis, among others.
Avatar n tn If it might be your laundry detergent, use a clear one for sensitive skin. Use the measuring cup and use the proper amount. Add in a handful of baking soda to kill fungus also. If you have athlete's foot, you must treat that also or you will transfer it to your underwear as you step into them.
Avatar n tn One differential for this is seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis appears as a greasy rash over the scalp ,face and neck.There may be some flaking involved. Does your daughter have any of these? Seborrheic dermatitis usually involves the scalp in children and may affect even children of the younger age group. Other differentials will be a fungal infection, an allergic reaction and psoriasis.
Avatar f tn In the last couple weeks, my pH Balance has come up to 7.5 and I am continuing the baking soda and molasses in a half cup of water twice a day. The brown spots all over my body, mostly on my back, stomach, belt-line and arm pits. Since my pH Balance has come up, several of these brown spots are beginning to dry up, starting to crumble and fall off. When bathing, my brown crusty spots now seem soften and I can easily scratched them off with a fingernail.
Avatar n tn Wash hair in vinegar mixed with baking soda. And take a hot bath in epsom salt water and tea tree oil. Coconut oil works good afterward but not a remedy for mites or lice. Vinegar clears all possible eggs and will not allow for them to attach to anything. Sprinkle salt all over the furniture, carpets and bedding and leave for two days. It dehydrates bugs. Also wash all bedding and anything you've come in contact with with vinegar and water.
Avatar n tn He then prescribed Hydrocortisone 2% and told me that I most likely just had some contact dermatitis and told me to avoid detergents and soaps. The cream heals the cuts temporarily but causes a lot of soreness...the itching and fissures around my anus reappear within days. I haven't had the tears on my labia minora in the last few months...I used to get them right before my period.
Avatar m tn I think you might be helped by neem soap and by washing your socks and underwear in very warm water and baking soda. Change your pillow case every night. Try neem shampoo. Be sure to wash your ears and face with the neem soap. Try tea tree oil on the rash areas. It even clears up toenail fungus.
Avatar n tn i looked at the pictures for seborrheic dermatitis and my head does not look like that i have a few scabs and the rash on my neck that just came on there this past week.i DO NOT HAVE HEAD LICE she doesn't know what she is talking about.she said i had a few nits and when she showed me what she found i said please that is dandruff she said she couldn't find any live ones.hello that is because i don't have HEAD LICE!! so what do you think could be wrong with me?
Avatar n tn I had this same exact problem and was able to get rid of it after 4 days and trying a few different things. Of course like everyone, I tried washing my hair a couple times with regular shampoo, as I originally thought I just didn't get all of the shampoo out of my hair. But by the second day, it got much worse and felt sticky. I washed with Palmolive and did a second wash with watered-down vinegar. This helped a great deal but didn't completely get rid of it.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
1548538 tn?1293875433 S doesn't do anything but increase the oils on my scalp and Nizoral only works if I wash my hair daily, which makes my hair a whole mess of textures and dryness. I've dried a mix of baking soda and apple cider vinegar and it's made my hair smell for weeks and makes my scalp extremely sensitive and dry.
529981 tn?1212853666 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 m tn Along with the rash I have a couple of tiny bumps inside my inner cheeks which don't hurt or itch and have been there since this incident. I used mouth wash and gargled with salt water, baking soda but the bumps are still there. I tried using hydrocortisone cream (as I use it for my seborrheic dermatitis) and bacitracin ointment on the red line but the red line is still there. It appears even redder after meals and then the color fades after I eat but is still there.
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 n tn 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 f tn An oral antibiotic will readily solve the condition given that this is probably cause by skin bacteria. However, dermatitis is a chronic and recurrent condition and given the right triggers , it may come back. The area may be reddish and inflammed and an infection may set in giving it the appearance that you have described in this post. I do not have any known herbal remedies for the skin condition.
Avatar f tn When the vinegar didn't work I looked on forums online for suggestions, most people jus suggested changing shampoo, which as we all know doesn't work, at least not straight away. Anyway I ended up using bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and making a paste with some grease cutting washing-up liquid. I rubbed it in to the scalp, left it a few minutes, then rinsed, and then repeated the treatment a few times. I've jus blow dryed my hair, and its lovely and soft and no more stickiness!!
Avatar f tn 2 previous times I used apple cider vinagre and after rinse with baking soda in warm water and showered the feet after - it worked - but I had to throw away a few pair of shoes - This time it started first to feet than to hands than to face and arms - I tried all previous things - nothing worked - I lost pairs of shoes - As I walked bare foot in my place & the floor became sticky too where it was in wood - I washed with vinagre - but did not do anything. 2 days ago - I said that's It !
Avatar f tn Hi, Excess oil may lead to other problems like fungal infections and seborrheic dermatitis . There are good products in the market that may be able to help. Hypoallergenic and organic shampoos, that are mild may be used daily. I suggest that you refrain from trying out products without consulting a dermatologist. This may cause other problems like extreme dryness and allergic reactions.
Avatar f tn Good, I am not the only one this is happening too. I thought I was crazy!! About 3 weeks ago I laid out in the sun, took a shower and noticed the top of my scalp was oily feeling and sticky. I thought I may have gotten some of my sun tan oil in my hair during the day or I didn't rinse the conditioner out good enough. The next day, I washed and rinsed really good and noticed the same thing was still there.
Avatar f tn Hi betho8477, I looked at your original message and you shouldn't use baking soda to try to get rid of the yeast or really any douche. The baking soda causes the wrong pH and can actually make things worse. The vagina is really self cleansing. You don't want to make it worse. I know you have yeast infection but still I would stick to anti-yeast (fungal) medication. But, yes I would try to insist that they identify this yeast to the species level.
Avatar f tn Several weeks later I started losing my hair and developed Seborrheic Dermatitis on my scalp. I lost about half my hair. My hair used to be down to my waist, healthy and SO thick I couldn't put it in a pony tail. I really miss it. Now I have to keep my hair chin length because of the pain. It hurts to touch any hair on my head. I can't wear a hat, go in the wind, go in heat or cold, etc... This pain has caused me to develop an extreme fear of being touched.
Avatar f tn I believe this type of itching might be hormonal. I have the same problem. Over the last year it's only gotten worse. Mostly bad at night, the worse it gets, the more frequent the itching. Sometimes during the day. I never had this problem before until I was pregnant With my first daughter, after which my hormones have never been the same. I've tried antihistamines, switching sheets, switching soap, laundry detergent, numerous lotions and creams.
Avatar n tn A couple of days ago I changed to a baking soda-peroxide toothpaste, and it has completely made it go away, no more orange tongue, no more stinky breath. I haven't made any other changes to my diet either.
288415 tn?1231634102 The doctor said I had seborrheic dermititis - which can also show up as flaky skin around your nose and mouth. Using a prescription co-steroid cream helped the flaky itchy skin - - still dealing with the liquid running out of my ear..... If the ear doctor doesn't help - see a dermatologist....
Avatar n tn For temporary itch relief, a warm bath with a small box of baking soda mixed in is very nice. Sit and soak for a bit, then get out and air dry yourself. It will drastically cut down on the itching, but isn't strong enough to generally aid in healing. Things I've learned to avoid: Moisturizers, oils, and overexposure to tapwater. Moisturizers make this stuff spread so quickly that you could see a week's spread in a single day. Oils have a similar, yet less powerful effect.
