Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis and sugar


Avatar n tn Hi, I am male 36yrs old. I have had Seborrheic Dermatitis for 15yrs. I have it on my face, head, back, ears and chest. The worse area affected is my face, around my nose. I have used Steroid cream, herbal medicine, aloe vera plant and antibiotics. At present I am using Aveeno Cream and Steroid Cream 0.05%. My skin has not been clear for the last 6mths. I am also on anti-depressants as I suffer from depression due to my skin condition. Is there any advice that you can give me.
Avatar n tn The condition has lasted for about 20 years and was first diagnosed as psoriasis. Only last year was seborrheic dermatitis diagnosed (after biopsy). The rash has always come back within a day or two after I stop using whatever med I was/am using. For the first 12 years or so, it was corticosteroid creams. Then Dovonex ointment, which worked very well for a while before it seemed to stop working. Now for a year and a half, Protopic ointment 0.
1566037 tn?1304302209 Hello, Please help. I have always had mild to moderate seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp (which I never really treated) and a mild case around the sides of my nose. A few months ago I was under a lot of stress (about to graduate from college) and had a pretty bad cold. Towards the end of my cold, I noticed the redness around my nose increasing until it broke out into a big butterfly rash within 2 days that itched like crazy.
1423337 tn?1282617220 due to hormone fluctuation from multiple pregnancies, i've suffered with a form of psoriasis called seborrheic dermatitis around my mouth and under my chin since 2005. i've been using a cream called protopic to deal with it, but it's so greasy and i already have oily skin. i get embarrassed if i must go outdoors and my face is shining all over the place. it comes and goes, but lately i've noticed it in a new area on my face, the bridge of my nose between the eyes.
Avatar n tn Smoking and alchohol are always terrible on the immune system and skin....I gave up those and wheat and sugar. Evening primrose oil and other sources of GLA I have heard reccommended as supplements.
Avatar n tn the T area of my face was slightly red and flakey). After reading somewhere that seborrheic dermatitis may be caused by a fungus, I started using the Head and Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo (which contains pyrithrione zinc). I massaged it into my skin twice a day for a few minutes while in the shower and then rinsed it off. To my suprise I started realizing good results after a few days, and it only took a couple weeks to be fully better. Just wanted to let you know what worked for me.
Avatar m tn Adjuvant therapy includes use of dandruff shampoo, an antifungal agent or both are essential during the pulse therapy and should be continued here after as maintenance therapy after each pulse. Anti fungal diet includes the elimination of sugar should reduce seborrhoeic dermatitis. Application of milk of magnesia is also found to be useful in the treatment of seborrhea.
Avatar n tn I know the drug is only used for psoriasis, but can it be used for seborrheic dermatitis as well? What happens if I use it?
Avatar m tn i am 25 years old.i have seborrheic dermatatis for 10 scalp remains itchy,and scales always present in the scalp.i want to know how to cure to rotate shampoos and for how long?
Avatar m tn Hi. I have Sebborheic dermatitis on my scalp and face. I am most concerned about the area on my upper cheeks either side of my nose. I have been given a steroid based cream..which completely clears it up but am worried about how often I should use it on my face. I don't want to use it all the time but it does work. I live in Japan and have asked the doctor and pharmacist this question but don't really understand the answers they gave me.
Avatar m tn ) (this was a month ago) I was diagnosed with perioral dermatitis and given 100mg doxy. once a day for a month and Klaron. Over the course of treatment I felt as though the klaron was irritating my cheeks (where I didn't really have any issues until I started treatment, but was putting the lotion there anyway thinking it would kepe it form spreading).
1548538 tn?1293875433 seborrheic dermatitis. However, not being FLAKES seems to rule the last one out!? Help?
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 n tn Hello, Hormonal imbalance is an important internal cause of dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis. Eat a healthy diet. You can also take vit B6 and vit A and E which are good for hair and skin. Try medicated shampoos for dandruff. There are a number of over-the-counter shampoos available that can help. The most effective ingredients -- antimicrobials -- to look for are zinc pyridinethione, selenium sulfide, sulfur and ketoconazole (also available by prescription).
Avatar n tn If there is any visible rash, redness, dryness etc then the possibilities of eczema and seborrheic dermatitis need to be ruled out. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the symptoms are gone or not. If the symptoms persist then please consult a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
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 The itchiness and bad odor maybe caused by seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp. It can be treated with antifungal solutions, medicated shampoos, or corticosteroid. Best to have a doctor look at it though for correct diagnosis.
Avatar f tn that's why I think its dry scalp and not dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis - the symptoms just don't fit. my hair and scalp are dry, not greasy - even if i go 3 days between shampoos my hair is not greasy. the flakes are small and white and not oily. I've been unable to get an appointment with the dermatologist yet - goodness knows how many months that is going to take. but I will try the vitamins.
681148 tn?1437665191 Hello, Dryness of scalp can be due to hormonal imbalance, poor health, poor hygiene, allergic hypersensitivity, lack of rest, emotional stress, excessive consumption of sugar, fat or starch, heredity predisposition and medical causes like eczema, atopic dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar n tn I was under so much stress and anxiety that I developed seborheic dermatitis on my face which I have never had before. Could this be a case of delayed seroconversion? FYI I tested via Home Access at 8.5 & 11.5 weeks both negative and via my Dr. at 3 months negative. should I just move on or should I test again? thanks for all that you do.
Avatar m tn -- or -- If some redness, burning, and itching at night around the mouth and cheek areas adjacent to the nose is a symptom in seborrheic dermatitis?? the lower part of my nose [near the tip] feels sort of rough too. Please keep in mind a month after noticing the tiny bumps in the central areas of my face and not having them come back after exfoliating gently, my original symptom was intermittent burning above my upper lip. This was a month before I noticed the redness in the same area.
Avatar n tn Hi, This rash could be caused due to various reasons including - seborrheic dermatitis, dry skin, eczema, heat rash or sweat dermatitis, etc. It is important to maintain good personal hygiene and avoid scratching the area. Use a powder to avoid sweat collection and apply calamine lotion at the sites of the lesion. He could take oral antihistamine or antiallergic medications for the itching. Apply calamine lotion at the sites.
Avatar m tn If you want another one done I'm sure they could do one. But you may want to see the ID doc before you get that done. I have both seborrheic dermatitis (scalp and forehead) as well as rosacea, on the face and have eczema on my legs and hands. Lots of fun here. I was totally misdiagnosed by a Harvard dermatologist and my leg blew up like an elephant leg due to an allergy to a steroid ointment and he said I had a type of vaculitis. LOL no way. I haven't had it since.
Avatar m tn 9) Other medications I use are Propecia and minoxidil (Rogaine) for hair loss, ketoconazole (2% cream) for seborrheic dermatitis on my face, and Finacea (azelaic acid) for rosacea on my nose. I do not use any other prescriptions medications. I take multivitamins in the morning. 10) I do have seborrheic dermatitis on my face, so already I appear to be predisposed to fungus problems.
Avatar m tn I've had this same problem over and over and it started up while I was in high school and has continued now even after I've graduated. I've tried the cortisone treatments, I've tried different kinds of shampoos, even just using things like neosporin and such-- but nothing seems to really keep it at bay for a period longer than a few days. This isn't at all a cure, but the thing that's kept it at bay the longest and has procured the best results is -believe it or not- an acne cream.
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 f tn I'm sure it's not Sebborheic Dermatitis though, because I've seen pictures of was Seb- Der looks like and it looks much more severe than what I have. I'm a little discouraged that they may not work because I'm sure I dont have Seb- Der, but I want to keep my hopes up. I also got a blood test done and will be called to see if it's something worse or if I'll need to take a pill that can help with my brown clusters.
Avatar n tn Hello, It can be due to seborrheic dermatitis or eczema skin. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is believed to be an inflammatory reaction related to the proliferation of normal skin habitant -Malassezia. Treatment usually involves use of antifungal, anti inflammatory and sebo suppressive or Keratolytic ingredients.
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 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.
