Seborrheic dermatitis and diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis and diabetes


Avatar n tn Within the past six months, I've been battling with what my doctor and dermatologist are calling seborrheic dermatitis. It's on my scalp, face, and has recently spread to my chest, arms and groin area. My M.D. did a complete blood panel on me and found that I had a fatty liver and high ferritin levels (453). I've been on a strict liver detox for the past month and have seen my AST and ALT levels decrease as well as losing nearly 30 pounds, which is nice.
Avatar n tn I am not sure as its seborrheic dermatities as right now i have this only on my face and that too under eyebrow and one under eye and around nose line.Last time doctor said its eczema.I am planning for HIV test but its so scarry thought that what if you are HIV positive though time and again my doctor said that you are not at risk of HIV still you can understand as normally i have living healthy life.Its just recently that i got some skin problem and mainly on face.
Avatar m tn Skin conditions like psoriasis,dermatitis,lice,scabies and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods can cause itchy skin. 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 doctor.
Avatar f tn I want it gone for good. One doc told me its cause am prone to diabetes and high blood pressure. so many diagnosis which one is it? Please can anyone help me????????
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,confirming a diagnosis is tough but some of the possibilities for your symptoms are dermatitis or eczema,seborrheic dermatitis ,fungal infections of the eyebrows and eyelashes or systemic diseases like diabetes or peripheral nerve diseases. Ketoconazole containing anti-fungal shampoos control the symptom if fungal infection is suspected.Dermatitis like seborrheic or atopic may require steroids.It is also important to get blood sugar levels estimated.
Avatar m tn I am a 20 yrs old tall and somewhat of a heavy set black male and i recently started noticing that my face and neck area has been looking somewhat grey. I also have seborrheic dermatitis but i don't know if thats the problem either. it is also cold where i am.
Avatar n tn One differential for this is seborrheic dermatitis. This form of skin condition may be due to stress.It may also be due to temperature and weather changes.However, the definite cause of this condition is unknown. What triggers your grandmother's rash? Is she under a lot of stress lately? Are there any changes at home or any discordance in her relationships?
Avatar n tn Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough ,but it sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. 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).
Avatar m tn Thanks for the tips. I have never had diabetes and it does not run in my family. None the less I will ask for that. But I had a doctor 8 years ago diagnose me with fibromyalgia and possible lupus. He was a good doctor I had him for about 10 years but when my sons dad died we lost our insurance and I had to get Medicaid and his office would not take Medicaid so I had to find a new doctor I was devastated.
Avatar m tn Other causes of peeling skin are lichen planus, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis. A clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and management. Treatment is specific based on the cause. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn At that time I was jogging 5 miles a day and was right about perfect weight for my frame. Again, not diabetes and this time, the reddish brown itchy spots seemed to be heat sensitive. Then at 34, after a suicide attempt (NOT due to the weird itchy spots!!) I decided to get serious about treatment for my Bi-Polar Disorder. A month after being on Lithium, the splotches were GONE! I'm 36 now, still on my Lithium (no more suicide attempts so far) and living itchy splotch freeeee!!!!
Avatar f tn Hi, the probabilities of the rashes and crack on sole are Atopic dermatitis, Contact dermatitis, sweat dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis and drug reaction or infection. It could be reaction to ketoconazole. Also any previous history of eczema, asthma, and allergic rhinitis should also be taken in to consideration. Metal allergy can also be strong possibility. Glucocorticoids with anti-histaminics against prescription may help to alleviate these symptoms.
Avatar n tn My hair is sarting to become grey.I have seborrheic dermatitis and Iam used to use selsun blue shampoo (that contains selenium) but today I read that it increases the graying of hair when used as shampoo,but may improve the graying if used orally as antioxidant. but i wonder that "Funnily enough, one sign of an overdose of seleniumSelenium - an antioxidant is hair loss." I wish that more studies to be done concerning it. I read that it has an antioxidant activity 50 times as vit.E.
Avatar n tn My mother who is Type 2 Diabetic, experinced these tears along with yeast infections and athletes foot infections all through her 30's and 40's until her diabetes was diagnosed and she got her levels under control. I honestly find it rediculous that the modern medical community, which treats the majority of women's reproductive health problems as shameful, has no flipping idea what causes these tears or how to really treat them.

Avatar m tn Balanitis is the commonest possibility .Conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus and psoriasis can predispose a person for balanitis.In eczema there are scaly, red bumps that may be itchy. These are only a few possibilities. For correct clinical diagnosis and management of your condition seeing a dermatologist will be extremely helpful. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn The last year I have suffered from scalp redness, tenderness, red spots, red bumps with salt like granules at the end of the hair, black blue looking hairs that are thin then texture gets thicker, tingling like crawling, itching and hair thinning, hair loss, oily flakey and irritated scalp, black dots underneath hair and over all itchy skin. I was diagnosed by a GP and a Derm with Seborrheic Dermatitis and put on a corticosteroid solution and dhs shampoo.
Avatar m tn Hello, Seborrhea is an important cause of hairfall but from your symptoms, it is important to rule out any male pattern baldness as well. Androgenic alopecia is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern. Men who have this type of hair loss usually have inherited the trait. Other causes may be use of some drugs, infections and underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes.
Avatar n tn Generally such wounds/scabs/ulcers that do not heal are due to underlying infection, low supply of oxygen to the wound that is reducing the healing process, underlying diabetes, or due to dermatitis. Wounds heal slower in diabetics or smokers or alcoholics who have been smoking and drinking for a long time. So these have to be ruled out. This could also be a case of seborrheic dermatitis. There is no cure as such, but it can be controlled by medicated shampoos and lotions.
Avatar f tn Seborrheic dermatitis is a very common condition, it can be on scalp, face, ears. It's treated with anti dandruff shampoos and topical steroids for the itching. I would try some hydrocortisone cream and see if that helps, if so then go to your doctor toget a Rx for a maintenance medication.

8723235 tn?1399509570 i have a pain on only one point right side of my head .. and i feel right side heavy as if that point is swollen...that particular area on my head is paining and very much irritating.... m really worried what could it be.? i dont know why i think i am having hairfall too.. now i was combing my hair and felt like i am having a bad hairfall..Maybe i have a hairfall for no reason or i never noticed before. since i am worried am thinking too much...
1224086 tn?1313661152 The redness, crusts and if it is also associated with itchiness, it is most likely to be seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp. Sometimes this can be due to psoriasis also. For either of these conditions you can try over the counter shampoos which contain ketoconazole. Ensure to have frequent hair washes. While using the shampoo, remember to keep it on for at least 10 minutes.
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.
Avatar f tn she struggles to get a satisfying breath and has extreme joint pain and stiffness... we have ruled out lupus and ms and endocrine does not believe any of the symptoms come from the hashimotos nor do they believe it comes from the rsd. there is no eveidence of arthritis. everyone is at a loss at the childrens hosp here and i fear she will die before we figure it out. any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Could also be inverse psoriasis (interferon can wrek havoc with psoriasis), seborrheic dermatitis, or a layered combo of several conditions. Best to see a dermatologist as many skin conditions mimic each other and derm's generally are better able to differentiate one from another. My experience is that non-derms tend to over or under treat, using topical cortisoids a bit too freely.
Avatar m tn I should also note that due to my extreme stress, I developed seborrheic dermatitis on my face; my forehead, nose, eyebrows and now moustache area are affected. My symptoms are pretty mild and usually well controlled in terms of flaking and redness, but my oil production is out of control. Never had these issues before my stress, but it just goes to show what kind of damage stress does to one's body.
Avatar m tn My nose has always been pretty oily and sometimes I'd just give it a quick wipe with my fingers. But now it has started to turn red and get flaky. I THINK it is seborrheic dermatitis based on symptoms that I researched. After getting a pretty bad flare up, I used Lotrimin Ultra for about 2 1/2 weeks and it went down a lot. However, that was only temporary.
Avatar n tn I have the same exact thing - and it's only at the crown!! So weird and frustrating - i've been trying everyting under the sun to get the stickyness out of my hair but NOTHING has worked - i even went to the dermatologist and they said they never heard of this before. I scrub my hair every night - it's the oddest thing because i'm 27 and never had this problem before - and i also tried dish detergent lol. Let me know if you find anything!
