Seborrheic dermatitis and relaxed hair

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis and relaxed hair


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.
529981 tn?1212853666 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. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
Avatar m tn I am an African-American female in my mid-thirties who has had a major issue with my scalp for a quite a while. If I wash my hair (relaxed) on Sunday, I have flakes by Tuesday and within five days its almost unbearable. The flakes are in patches and I can take a tail-comb and lift the grey scales up. When I part my hair you can clearly see the patches throughout. Its not like normal dandruff.
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 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 But, I do find that it may be after a stressful event and I was probably constipated and finally relaxed and/or I have eaten some rich foods. My husband suggested to take deep breaths more, and not hold my breath. I just don't want it to happen where I hurt myself again, more serious, and no one is around.
Avatar f tn I found the thing that helps for a couple to few weeks is dying my hair and/or getting a scalp treatment at the hair salon. Let me know if you find a remedy that works on a daily basis!
Avatar m tn And from what I understand, you would know if your condom broke. Aside from all symptoms being meaningless, they are also unreliable given your state of admitted anxiety. Especially your tongue--it is very probably just coated tongue. I first noticed that my tongue was coated when I became concerned about a sickness, but it has been that way in the years since, and I have been treated by many physicians and dentists, none of whom were concerned.
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 n tn I am 43years old and have picked my entire life. I have small but permanent scars around my chin, neck, upper arms and even legs. It starts as a small pimple or perhaps and ingrown hair on leg or just running my fingers through my hair on the scalp and finding any "spot" and picking it. I have always picked my scabs off also. This has resulted in sores taking forever to heal (weeks) and them 70% of the time leaving a small permanent scar.
Avatar n tn Been treated for blepharitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and allergies. Whenever I start another treatment I have a short period of relief. It always comes back...longest time without symptoms 10 days. Like eveyone else, I have thrown all makeup, lotions, and soaps away. Washed sheets, pillow cases, and put pillow in the dryer. This has become debilitating and I am becoming depressed. I have a high profile job and don't want to be seen because I look like I have some awful disease.
Avatar n tn Hi, Differentials may include eczematous disease ( allergic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis)involving the extremities.There may be an overlying infection after severely scratching or breaking the skin. Have you any known allergies? At this point it is difficult to tell what causes the condition. A complete examination by an internist or dermatologist may help. Have you tried taking any medications before that relieved the symptoms?
387660 tn?1242600342 is I commute two hours a day. I now keep a hair tie in my car to put on my wrist and I slap the metal part against my wrist every couple of seconds to keep me awake. I get to work or home and i have red bumps all over my arms. I have also slapped my legs with a hair brush and pinched my inner thigh. I am 33, get 7 hours of sleep a night... I am fine once I am out of the car... with my commute I am PETRIFIED I am going to kill myself or someone else, but I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn I know that when I trim mine really short and the 1-2 times that I have shaved, it got severly itchy until the hair grew back. It was like 2-3 weeks before the itching went away completely. I know that my legs get really itchy from shaving, so after I shave I put baby oil on them. You might try using baby oil to moisturize the area.
Avatar m tn i did it all! thought scabees and took those crazy baths, did the clothes thing, shaved all my hair, my room stunk from the chemicals - i isolated myself after six months of this i was in a constant state of hypertension, and started to experience psychological problems that have stayed with me. i could feel them crawling in my eyebrows and i used a magnifying glass to see them, but they were never there.
Avatar f tn I have tried all the expensive prescription and steroid creams to no avail. I am losing sleep, and my sanity, b/c it keeps me up all night. I am staying out of the sun, but every year, this persists until December or January. I have read countless articles and blogs about BRP, am sure that is what I have, but have yet to find a cure, and therefore some hope that I don't have to suffer with this every year for the rest of my life. Any new ideas/solutions/cures??? PLEASE?!!!!
