Seborrheic dermatitis candida

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis candida


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 Hi I understand how frustrating this is for you. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic and recurrent skin condition. There is really no definite cure for this. It appears to be aggravated by stress and weather. At this point, it has been associated with fungal or yeast infection. In seborrheic dermatitis, frequent and vigorous shampooing appears to improve the condition much more than the use of medicated shampoos. Also, the use of topical corticosteroids for severe cases may be able to help.
Avatar n tn Hi Doctor, I have a bad case of seborrheic dermatitis in my eyebrows. I tried Desonide, which helped, but when I switched to Elidel, it wasn't successful in controlling my seb derm. And my derm told me to switch back to desonide. ~10 days, twice daily desonide ~2-3 weeks twice daily Elidel ~10 days twice daily desonide+salycylic acid, 6% ~a few days Elidel My treatment has probably gone on for a little over six weeks total (which is what's listed about). 1.
Avatar n tn Diarrhea, sometimes associated with abdominal cramps, can be caused by Candida. Psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis have also been reported in association with Candida.
Avatar m tn // I was also diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis on my eyebrows. I also recently discovered that I have Candida non-albican. Please let me know your thoughts. Can all theses skin problems be due to Candida?
Avatar f tn I thought it was some form of dermatitis, maybe seborrheic, but nothing seems to help. 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 m tn Hello, From your symptoms it can be seborrheic dermatitis or fungal infection. First of all, don’t use any cosmetics on the penis,instead use some topical antimicrobials like Bacitracin or Lotrimin.Also corticosteroids and topical immunosuppressants can be used but they are available under prescription. Also retract the foreskin daily and soak in warm water to clean penis and foreskin.
Avatar n tn My scalp and hairline/eyebrows/creases behind ears/inside ears developed a sort of red, scaly rash that doesn't particularly itch that I thought might have been seborrheic dermatitis - I have been using a 2% ketoconazole shampoo, plus a cream (same active at 2% also) which didn't do a thing. Then I tried some OTC hydrocortisone to try and calm the redness and that didn't help either.

Avatar f tn The condition usually occurs in the face and scalp and may be associated with yellowish plaques that scale off. The cause of seborrheic dermatitis is not well defined.Climate, hygiene and psychological factors have been associated with this condition. Constant shampooing will be able to help. A consult with a dermatologist for topical medications ( topical steroids )and medicated shampoos (containing selenium sulfide)may be necessary.
4341400 tn?1353077183 It's possible that it is seborrheic dermatitis or candida yeast. Try getting some active manuka honey at least a +10 active. Apply it to entire surface and cover with guaze soaked in aloe vera juice with a few drops of tea tree oil,3 drops of neem oil and 1 drop of Thyme oil. .It could also be a fungal dermatitis or some type of mite or parasite. The manuka paste will kill any bacteria, fungus or parasite.
Avatar n tn That can help get rid of a yeast issue. I was diagnosed with seborrheic (I know I didn't spell that right) dermatitis about a year and a half after I got herpes. I look at it as a coincidence. If you think herpes is related, try taking valtrex or acyclovir suppressively and see if that helps. I don't think you'll see a difference.
Avatar n tn Differentials here will be an allergic reaction ,a viral or bacterial conjunctivitis and seborrheic dermatitis. Have you noticed any greasy scaling over the scalp? Over the eyelids, have you noted any scales which seems to affect the base of eye lashes? A fungal infection may also be a differential. Do you have any known allergies before?
Avatar n tn I have suffered from mild seborrheic dermatitis on my face for years. This responds well to ketoconazole, but the problem with my ears is different. My dermatitis never itched before. I talked to my doctor about it and she prescribed flumethasone pivalare ear drops. These reduced the itching for a while, but the condition soon came back. I sometimes wonder if I have caught a new, antifungal-resistant strain of pityrosporum ovale (the yeast that causes seborrheic dermatitis).
Avatar n tn Along with the ears had a dry patch under which came and went, and around the nose. 1 year on, Spread around the back of neck behind ears, a new doctor said generic dermatitis and keep moisturised. Now I have dry scaly skin all around neck, patches on cheek and all over ears, Slow hair growth where it is and discolouration so looks horrible.
Avatar m tn Pylori-negative GERD-positve (mild, but getting worse with age) Seborrheic Dermatitis (scalp; going on almost 30yrs, coincidence???) Periodic skin rashes on the arms, legs, waistline, hands and torso. Just small patches of itchy, red dots. They have been variously diagnosed as fungal, contact dermatitis, or heat rashes. They weren't too bothersome and did not occur too frequently so I just used whatever cream the Dr prescribed and didn't worry about it.
Avatar m tn I went today to a dermatologist who said I have seborrheic dermatitis, he prescribed a special shampoo to use 3 times a week. Will this also help hair that is easily falling from my stomach and torso? don't think so, I feel like doctors do not listen But until now i cannot find an explanation to my white tongue and loss of appetite which came together. 3 weeks ago a parasite called entamoeba histolytica was found in my stools.
Avatar f tn Hi! I have seborrheic dermatitis and I use two shampoos (alternating them). One with tar and one with climbazole and zinc pyrithione. Maybe you should try them? Also, while I took Ganatone and Omeprazole (for treating my GERD and LPR), I returned to normal condition of the skin on my face. But when I stopped taking them, redness and peeling have appeared again. Problems with the gastrointestinal tract is known can be manifested as skin diseases. Do you have problems with it, for example, GERD?
Avatar m tn I went back to dermatologist and he said it might be some fungal infection/inflammation or possibly seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis. so he prescribed me to use Ketokanazole topical cream for three weeks & the bumps at the base and under my foreskin he said were pearly penile papulae, which are harmless and will be there for life.
Avatar m tn I went back to dermatologist and he said it might be some fungal infection or possibly seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis. so he prescribed me to use Ketokanazole topical cream for three weeks & the bumps at the base and under my foreskin he said were pearly penile papulae. After three weeks conditions didnt improve, so i went back and he said it might be eczema and not any kind of STD's & the black raised spots on my glans he said were nothing to be worried about and they are normal.
1153266 tn?1262127735 If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist and get seborrheic dermatitis and dermatitis ruled out. 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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Then - allergic reaction to hair products. Then - fungus. Then - seborrheic dermatitis. I have used everything. The only time it was ever cleared up was when I was on heavy doses of steroids for another condition. It came back as soon as I went off the steroids. I came to the conclusion a long time ago that there isn't a doctor/dermatologist that knows exactly what it is. I've just accepted it. Certain hair products do cause it to be worse. Some times my ears bleed.
Avatar f tn This may be seborrheic dermatitis, which does have a yeast connection. I've had similar issues. My derm took a biopsy and that was her diagnosis. Hair loss and scalp flaking are common even with sticky or oily hair. Talk to your dermatologist or research online, there are treatment options. I know this is an old post but others may find it with an Internet search. Good luck and don't be disheartened.
Avatar f tn FYI the strains that are resistant to the usual antibiotics for yeast are Candida glabrata, Candida prapsilosis, Candida tropicalis, and Candida krusei. Sometimes these can be resistant to the stronger anti-fungals as well. So are you bedridden for so long due to chronic fatigue or pain or both. What is going on there?
Avatar f tn So you may not be sick and have it. If you have Seborrheic dermatitis it often makes you more likely to have it. Also, if your body produces a lot of oil it is more likely to get it. People in countries with higher heat and humidity have more of it. Also,cosmetics, lotions, sunscreens, emollients, olive oil can make you susceptible. These yeast live off of olive oil.
Avatar n tn Infections caused by yeast, herpes, genital warts, pinworms, scabies, and lice cause the condition. Skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, psoriasis, and seborrheic dermatitis may initially present as pruritis ani. Contact dermatitis may be caused by exposure to soaps, contraceptive jellies and foams, scented toilet paper, deodorant sprays, and douches. Individuals who have chronic diarrhea may have pruritis ani because of the difficulty keeping the area clean and dry.

288415 tn?1231634102 The doctor said I had seborrheic dermititis - which can also show up as flaky skin around your nose and mouth. Using a prescription co-steroid cream helped the flaky itchy skin - - still dealing with the liquid running out of my ear..... If the ear doctor doesn't help - see a dermatologist....
Avatar m tn -psoriasis; - seborrheic dermatitis; -maybe, demodex mites (oily skin and seborrheic dermatitis can cause multiplication of demodex mites). My face skin flakes, especially over the nose, I have got itchy skin on the nape, nose (especially nostrils) and the area around the nose are red and oily (note that it is a symptoms of demodex mites).
