Avatar n tn Hello, Blepharitis is an ocular disease characterized by inflammation of the eyelid margins. Generally the causes are seborrheic dermatitis (similar to dandruff) and infection by Staphylococcus bacteria,but sometimes allergies like allergic responses to dust mite feces and other allergens can also cause it. Allergy shots will be helpful provided if it is confirmed that blepharitis in your friends’ case is caused by an allergic reaction.
Avatar n tn It is characterized by inflammation of the eyelid margins. Blepharitis usually causes redness of the eyes and itching and irritation of the eyelids in both eyes.

3227684 tn?1347373065 Hello, Recently, before my exams, I have developed symptoms that can suggest, according to what I read on the Internet, a seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn Hello, Apart from seborrheic dermatitis, one possibility is of any allergic reaction and the second is of blepharitis. Blepharitis is an inflammation of the upper eyelid in response to any infection or allergy. Dietary factors in some individuals (caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, tobacco) may also cause blepharitis. Apply warm compresses on the eyelid and keep the area clean with frequent washing. Also avoid applying any eye makeup till the symptoms get resolved.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed by several dermatologists as having seborrheic dermatitis so I use TGEL shampoo and cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. Recently I stopped using moisturizers because my skin seemed too oily and voila my skin looks very good (my blepharitis also cleared up as soon as I stopped using treatments). However my extremely flaky/seemingly dry lips remain.

Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to allergic reaction to the cosmetics, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis or eczema. 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. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). Later, pityrosporum yeast grows excessively in the sebum, sometime along with bacteria, making the dermatitis more persistent.

Avatar n tn Falling off of eyelashes may be due to skin problems involving the eyelids. Blepharitis or seborrheic dermatitis are conditions which may cause falling off of eye lashes. Is your skin condition associated with scaling or redness of the eyelids? I suggest that a baseline consult with an ophthalmologist will help. A complete eye examination will help exclude an underlying eyelid problem.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been getting electrolysis on my face and have recently been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if the Seborrheic dermatitis may have been caused by the damaging of the hair follicles. I have very mild seb derm but it flares up about four days after an electrolysis session on my face. Any help would be appreciated.
