Seborrheic dermatitis and tanning

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis and tanning


Avatar n tn A year ago I went to the dermatologist because I was really worried about a red and itchy rash around my nose and scalp. I was dianosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, I later had it behind my ears, and Now I have developed the same thing on my inner thighs and ..testicles. I've been using Kenacort around the nose and behind the ears. T-Gel from Neutrogena for my Scalp. These symptoms come and go with no warning, the treatment I've been applying seems to work, but it's just temporal..
Avatar n tn My dermatologist said it is seborrheic dermatitis. I researched this and found out dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis is linked to a fungus or yeast overgrowth called Malazzeia something. Anyway, I think I have some strange thing going on with yeast/fungus. I just don't get it. The doctors act like these two conditions with my skin and hair aren't related, but I think they are. My doctor also did a biopsy of my skin and said she only found that my skin cells were swollen?
Avatar f tn They may be reddish brown, slightly scaly patches or ugly, depigmented areas that will not tan, especially in suntanned skin. They should be differentiated from seborrheic dermatitis and vitiligo. Selenium sulphide lotion can be applied for around 10-15 minutes, rinsed off and re-applied daily for about a week.
1730786 tn?1310096414 They should be differentiated from seborrheic dermatitis and vitiligo. Selenium sulphide lotion can be applied for around 10-15 minutes, rinsed off and re-applied daily for about a week. It is less messy and preferably easy to use than the Selsun and Ketoconazole shampoos which needs to applied on the patches of affected skin after an evening bath, left to dry the whole night and washed off the next morning.
Avatar n tn I have had a itchy, dry and red rash that goes from my chest to my neck and on my back..and has started to appear on my shoulders. It gets better with tanning and swimming in a pool. What could this be?
Avatar n tn some possibilities could be pityriasis rosea, syphilis, tinea corporis (ringworm - body fungus), seborrheic dermatitis, acute psoriasis, and tinea versicolor.
Avatar f tn They are just under my eye brow on my eye lid and in a patch, and then around the sides also. I do go in tanning beds but this hasn't ever happened to me before. What are the possible things it could be and how do I get rid of it quickly?
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 m tn But culture may not be possible due species variation require special conditions. Differentials with same presentation include Vitiligo,pseudoachromia,seborrheic dermatitis. Confirmation can be done in physical examination itself because the clinical presentation of T.versicolor is by its distribution and differentiation of lesions by color from pink to brown.Most of the patients will be presented with non tanny lesion that scale on scraping.Confirmation is with KOH appliance.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but this can be due to hives,dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis. The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamine which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks). Take non-sedating antihistamines such as Cetirizine(Zyrtec)or Loratadine(Claritin) may be needed to get symptom relief. Sedating antihistamines such as Chlorphenamine(Benadryl)are used at night to get urticaria control.
Avatar f tn Hello - I too have had the same issue with reoccurring angry red lesions that turn scaly, particularly on my cheek and either side of my nose. After loads and loads of research I figured out that is was probably 'Seborrheic Dermatitis' - I suggest that you use Google Images to take a look at others affected. The most effective treatment (that I have discovered) is to use simple Head & Shoulders as a facial cleanser.
Avatar m tn They should be differentiated from seborrheic dermatitis and vitiligo. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. 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. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Just be careful not to overdue it. The only reason I started tanning is because I was so sick and I looked like death warmed over.
Avatar f tn We found multiple reasons for it but, the one that it sounded like the most is Seborrheic Dermatitis. We saw the symptoms of it and the causes and it sounded like it. And then we noticed that my flare up got the worse when it is cold. And my flare up started in late November of 2012. And I thought it was permantley gone but once it started getting really cold, which wasn't until lasts week, it started to flare up again.
200558 tn?1189759425 I have what you are describing and have for the past 7-8 years. It's called seborrheic dermatitis, an oil gland disorder. The only thing that helps me out is a prescriptions of eye ointment that is safe for the eyes. It's neo/poly/dexamethasone. It's a steroid/antibiotic ointment. I have to use it daily to keep it under control. Do you have any other spots that are scaly or scabbed over? A few years ago, I developed some on the back of my scalp.
Avatar n tn I am 50 years old, premenopausal, and have had no skin problems except seborrheic dermatitis in my college years. I do not have hay fever or allergies. I was not on any medications at the time this all started. Any ideas? I have asked my doctor for a referral to yet another dermatologist, but it will probably be a month or two until I get an appointment. I am appalled that after all these doctor visits and medications, I still wound up with scars.
Avatar n tn I always thought it was from when I was a young teen and went to the tanning booth that they permanently stayed white...turns out that's not the case. Anyway, he said at night when I wipe off my eye makeup I'm to place a warm wash cloth over my eyes and place a little (not much) pressure to the lower eye area. After doing this for a few weeks the oil glands will start producing more oils to the eyes and while he didn't say it would cure it (I forgot to ask), you could all always try it.
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?
Avatar n tn I also put it on my legs when I got out of the shower the other day and had no itching until later that night. I also suffer from seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp. I alternate using Selsan Blue and Head and Shoulders. I have been using both for about a month every time I shampoo and now that it is starting to clear up I have gon back to using my 365 natural shampoo from whole foods. It is sulfate/sulfite/paraben free and it is only $5.99 for a 32 oz. bottle.
440193 tn?1293814117 I saw a doctor two years ago for adult acne and at that time told him about my eye lashes that were falling out, mostly on my left side. He said it was seborrheic dermatitis and that if I would wash my hair with this one shampoo and let it sit on my head for 10 minutes, rinse, and do it gain for 10 minutes, and to do that for three days, it would go away. He said the "spores" from the seborrheic dermatitis is what caused my eyelashes to fall out.
Avatar n tn Hm. Why would an allergic contact dermatitis start and be focus on the penis and the groin area? Those who are suffering: - Did you move/travel recently? - Did you change furniture/detergent/sheets? - What is the weather like in your area?
Avatar n tn -) Any ideas what I might have-- I've tried benadryl- (ointment and pills) and tinactin and neither have worked. Do I have Pevla (sp)?
Avatar f tn (Not blister from sun poison) I stopped tanning. I then was diagnosed with a genetic tissue disease and rheumatoid arthritis and also a late lupus. Iam on about 15 different medicationsbut these sores on my face are the worst. have you found a treatment for anything to get rid of them.
Avatar n tn I have seborrheic dermatitis, and haven't used a regular shampoo in decades. Now I use T/Gel - in rotation. The menthol one is great for itchy scalps, which leads me to problem number 3: I get unidentified bumps on my skin, particularly on my scalp and neck, which are incredibly itchy. I call this my "heat rash", as it's often associated with a hot day, or when I'm bundled up against the cold, but I can get this any time on my scalp, neck and back.
Avatar n tn He said its contact dermatitis (rash) and prescribed an oral steroid and topical hydrocortisone. The prednisone worked great! I am on a 12 day course and it went away on the second day. He said i am allergic to something (ingredients in a lip gloss/chap stick or possibly food). He recommended keeping a diary of what i am eating and applying on my lips. Go see a doctor to get the proper treatment. Good luck!
Avatar n tn My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is.
