1029192 tn?1292985518 You may want to take vitamin e capsules, break them open and rub the oil on the affected areas. If you're not allergic to Aloe then you may want to buy an Aloe plant cut the leaf open and apply the Aloe directly to the affected areas. My sister who has very eczema use to do use the vitamin e capsules. At a doctor's recommendation my mom used Aloe on my brother's hands when he was a kid after he got 3rd degree burns... he doesn't have any scars! I'm allergic to Aloe so I'm stuck on Vitamin E.
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.
Avatar f tn I went to my campus doctor for a rash on my face, and she told me it was seborrheic dermatitis and that it was easily treatable. She gave me a face wash and oral pills (doxycycline). The pills made my rash go away, but now I have severe acne (maybe periorficial dermatitis). It has been over a month and my acne seems to be getting worse, as well as spreading. My campus would not get another appointment until the beginning of November, and I do not have a car, so I am forced to wait.
Avatar n tn The differential diagnosis include spongiotic dermatitis with secondary impetigenization such as impetigenized allergic contact dermatitis and nummular dermatitis and pustular psoriasis. Clinical correlation is necessary."No dysplasia to suggest Bowen's disease. Negative for fungus,dermatophyte infection cannot be entirely excluded. Here we are in 2008 and I have been through 5 days of testing at the UCSD hospital for contact dermatitis and zero!
Avatar n tn The cause of this condition may be due to several factors such as in your case ,seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis may present with scaling on the body and the head .Severe forms may present as greasy scales on the scalp as well as over the chest and the eyebrows. You may need selenium sulfide or topical corticosteroids for this. Apply moisturizers over the palm and soles. Vitamin E cream at least three times a day may be able to help here.
Avatar m tn Hello, Seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea and eczema are not related to deficiency of B Complex, Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin A, C, E. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity. The exact cause of rosacea is not known. The basic process seems to involve dilation of the small blood vessels of the face.
Avatar f tn I have had two prescription creams from the doctor, one for seborrheic dermatitis and one for rosacea, both made my skin feel tight and more dry. I have tried everything under the sun in the way of creams and am currently using Liz Earle for dry/sensitive skin. I have also tried vitamin e oil on my face which works for a few days then stops.
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 said the rash was seborrheic dermatitis and put me on accutane again for the acne and gave me cortisone cream and nizoral shampoo for the rash. Although the acne is going, the rash is really red and flaking even more due to accutane. Everytime I see my derm he just tells me the cortisone and shampoo should work but it doesn't! Has anybody experienced something like this or does anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Hi These dry patchy skin may be irritant dermatitis or it can be seborrheic dermatitis. However, seborrheic dermatitis usually manifests as a greasy patch of skin with scaling over the affected areas. This does not seem to be your case. Applying vitamin E cream over the areas and washing with a mild and bland cleanser like Cetaphil or Neutrogena may help. Apply the corticosteroid cream only when there is redness or swelling.
Avatar f tn ) on it- then it burns. I've been using vitamin e oil and petroleum jelly to keep it from flaking. I don't wear makeup and I've changed my sunscreen and face wash several times with no change. Any ideas what it might be? My dermatologist can't see me for a few months so any help I could get in the interim would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn It is even pimply under my breast, my arm pits, neck, behind ears, and face. As for my seborrheic dermatitis it is extremely dry. I have moderate to high severity of rosacea. Aren't they're drying effects and other ingredients in cetaphil that will make it more red and dry. What other ingredients in other products besides those in cetaphill will make my skin breakout? I want to avoid those products. I am having a breakout right now but can't reach my dermatologist until may 22nd.
Avatar n tn Avoid direct sun exposure. Applying a mild vitamin E cream to moisturize the areas may keep the dryness and scaling down until the cause is ascertained.
Avatar n tn Hi The presence of red bumps and blisters on the hairline may be a case of seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis or folliculitis. Seborrheic dermatitis may present with greasy scales that may be itchy. Psoriasis presents as white scales that may be associated with pinpoint bleeding when the scales slough off. Folliculitis presents with reddish bumps that involve the hair follicles. Fungal infections may also present similarly in some cases.
Avatar f tn I haven’t used this much but it seems like a good soothing face cream and I like the ingredient list I've also been drinking at 1 or 2 cups of green tea a day instead of coffee during the week (it’s tougher to do on weekends and breaks). Other than that I've been eating my usual diet which is pretty typical stuff except I never drink soda, drink lots of water, and never eat fast food from chains like McDonald’s, Wendy’s, etc.
Avatar f tn Basically my skin is very sensitive and is very easily bruised and scarred. The vitamin e cream works to take away the dryness of my skin however if i don't use it i cant even wear makeup since my skin remains to dry to do so. Im not sure what to do.
Avatar n tn well i did unfortunately, and I have gotten a rash inbetween mmy breast where the pendant of the necklace was. i have had it for a bout a week and a few days. I have put vitamin e on it for the past 3 days. It has turned dark red kind of rouge/brown and its kind of scaly when i touch it its rough and now for some reason i am getting a rash on my neck. i discontinued wearing that jewelry so i have no idea why this other rash came along.
Avatar m tn I currently use Cetaphil moisturiser and a vitamin E oil. Please help me stop it. Can the skin thicken back up?
Avatar m tn 29 (-), anti HCV (-), anti HIV (-) I am vegetarian for 2 years and suffering from seborrheic dermatitis for 8 months. I am not so physically active. I don't have any physical symptoms. ( Age 19, weight 75 kg, height 1.75 m.) What do all these results mean?
Avatar f tn I have tried applying lubriderm lotion, coconut oil, vitamin e preparations, selsun blue, and glycerin but they have not helped at all. They work the first day i use them but after that there is no difference and it goes back to how it was before. Is there anything i can do to try to cure it? I dont want to use a hydrocortisone cream because of the dependency and the thinning of skin that can occur.
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 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.
1635132 tn?1305067530 My background is mostly European, but I also have Mongolian ancestors, and have olive skin. I take fish oil and vitamin e, and lots of other supplements. I also have what appears to be Vitiligo on my arms. Lots of white spots. Are these related?
Avatar f tn Let me say that I have no health insurance so I did not see a doctor at first. So anyway I tried vitamin E and the next thing I know my entire nose is red and peeling and bleeding in spots. So I go to a Dr and he says I have contact dermetitis and gives me a script for prednisone. IT WORKS! But of course I have to stop the script and wean off it. The stuff on my nose comes back. It is bumpy and red and the skin feels tight and it is painful. Can anyone help?
Avatar f tn I'd encourage a less rigorous treatment to the delicate skin and use a vitamin-e based eye cream. Hope you find relief soon!
Avatar m tn Keratosis Pilaris and Seborrheic Dermatitis. There are multiple treatments I have found for both (though no cures) and they include lactic acid creams, coal tar lotions, and other topicals containing things like Vitamin A and urea. I haven't tried any of the treatments to date, but I am going to start the coal tar treatment for seborrheic dermatits today. If I have any luck, I'll be sure to let you know!
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 n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it looks like eczema or sebarrheic 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 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.
