Seborrheic dermatitis coconut oil

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis coconut oil


Avatar n tn After looking for hours on the web, I self diagnosed seborrheic dermatitis. I bought some cortizone and started using that but it didn't seem to do anything. I tried washing my face with dandruff shampoo but that irritated my skin and didn't seem to help my rash. 2 days ago the rash got much worse so I went to see my local dermatologist. After looking at my face for a minute he said I indeed have seborrheic dermatitis. He prescribed Desoximetasone Cream USP, 0.25%.
Avatar n tn My 6 week old was Dx'd with a terrible case of Seborrheic dermatitis on his face, hurt me to even kiss his cheeks. It was bad! I used organic coconut oil about 5X a day and after two days he is 95% better. Just a few stubborn spots remain that were very severe. I swear by coconut oil since it is an antifungal and the dermatitis may be caused by a yeast. Worked for us!!
Avatar f tn I've tried using some lemon juice on the scalp one a week (traditional method), shampoo regularly and using coconut oil to avoid the hair become dry and brittle.The dandruff are still there.Is it some kind of disease? I want to know more about it and method to treat this condition.Thank you.
Avatar n tn Now, I have stopped using all those creams (I thought maybe my skin was already damaged from the creams) and have resorted to coconut oil. However, I still am not fully cured, my symptoms come back after a few days. I just ordered Emuaid (which apparently is a miracle, but I'm still skeptical,) but I haven't started using it yet. I'm out of ideas, and I really want for the pain to go away, so I can start LIVING again. I might go gluten free, I take vitamin D, Biotin and fish oil.
Avatar n tn Hello, For the last 4 months I've been suffering from Seborrheic Dermatitis. I've been using Derma Smoothe FS and Stieprox in correlation with each in order to combat the problem for more than two months now. The itch is gone, but there is still thick patches of the fungus on the top sides and back of my which will not go away. I'm getting very irritated with this problem since it will not go away and just want something to make it disappear. any ideas?

Avatar m tn Hello, The symptoms can be due to seborrheic 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. Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn He applied the creams the doctor prescribed it, but it only gave him temporary relief. He has been using extra virgin coconut oil on the affected areas and that really seems to help him, but it eventually comes back. Is there anything he can do to completely get rid of this? I'm hoping for something that will kill it at the roots!!
Avatar n tn i have had a dry itchy scalp that is mainly just at the top of my neck, there are some red patches with flaky skin. i have seen a doctor numerous times and have tried almost every home remedy from vinegar, coconut & olive oil, i have tried these medicated shampoo's, philip kingsley scalp range, ketoconazole, selenium sulphide, salacylic acid, coal tar and loads more. i've had this for months and am desperate to stop the itching!
Avatar n tn Sometimes I use olive or coconut oil. I suspect it may be seborrheic dermatitis, and have also used t-gel shampoo as face wash. Everything I use relieves the symptoms a little, then it flares back up with a mind of its own. I don't want to use steroids, because they feed bacteria. I don't want to use antibiotic cream because that feeds fungi, and I wonder if I may have a fungal infection. I am at my wits end with this guessing game!
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.
681148 tn?1437665191 I have chemical sensitivities, so I don't add hair fixatives to my hair and scalp. I typically add olive oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil after I wash my hair in the shower. I've been taking extra B vitamins, too. This is really driving me mad, because it's making me miserable.
Avatar m tn I have tried alternating a steroid cream (my daughter gets it for eczema), Lotrimin and Coconut oil (supposed to have anti-fungal properties) every day for weeks now. If we got a few days without sex and I don't masturbate it seems to nearly go away completely (especially after applying the steroid cream) but the coronal ridge remains a tad more red than normal and so does the frenelum area. As soon as I have any kind of sexual activity it comes right back.
Avatar m tn Seborrheic dermatitis and folliculitis are different processes which are managed in different ways. I suggest that you discuss these with a dermatologist. HIV would not be transmitted in massage oil, no matter where it was poured. the exposures you describe are no risk, whether you had one event or 101. Take care.
Avatar m tn I highly suggest seabuckthorn oil, virgin coconut oil, and rose hip oil. Use this blend in bath, about 1 tablespoon and 1 tablespoon of borax, soak for about 1/2 hour. Then add 1-2 drops each of peppermint oil, tea tree oil and clove essential oil to his shampoo, start out with one drop and if he doesn't get a burning sensation increase by 1 drop each. Also get some Diatamaceous Earth, it is an antiparasitic. Dust you dog very lightly with the powder to kill mites, fleas and ticks.
Avatar m tn I've been bagging my clothing, changing clothes multiple times per day and vacuuming and doing laundry daily and self-treating with a series of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications and supplies such as tea tree oil and coconut oil (applied to the skin) and bathing nightly in borax/epsom salts water (5x/week) and dilute bleach (2 x/week).
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms, various possibilities are there. These include contact dermatitis, rash due to friction rub with clothes, dermatitis (atopic, contact, allergic),excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis or balanitis(due to an underlying infection (bacterial and fungal as well as other organisms) . You may try calamine lotion on the rash. You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing.
Avatar m tn Hello, One possibility that is coming to my mind is of seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas of the body. It is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease is aggravated by sweating and humidity. Oral antifungal drugs and immunomodulators such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are used in very severe cases.
Avatar m tn After two kind of rashes and a diagnosis of DERMATITIS, XEROSIS, PRURITIC DISORDER, and SEBORRHEIC DERMATITIS from a dermatologist, I am using Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, Sarna Sensitive Anti-Itch Lotion, and Aveeno Daily Moisturizer with sunscreen for my face. For about a week I also used good old Petroleum Jelly on top of the others, despite how it felt, on the recommendation of my dermatologist. My skin was in really bad shape at that time and it WAS worth it!
Avatar m tn Apple Cider Vinegar. Selsun Blue. Coal Tar. Pine tar. Coconut oil, Amla oil. Olive Oil. Tea tree shampoos. Castor Oil. Jojoba oil. Tried taking mulivitamin supplements and biotin.Yes I have tried all these with no luck neither in controlling dandruff or hair loss. I do not think I have seborrheic dermatitis or any other skin condition as the products would treat the disease if that was the case. I do have digestive issues and my stomach gets upset pretty easily.
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.
529981 tn?1212853666 Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Avatar m tn I am getting better, no more bumps, spot icthy at certain part, i keep using ketoconazoles cream, I still take the tables ketoconozoles 400mg/day. I used coconut oil for overnite. dandruff shampoo, listening wash daily. an a medical spray with methosome. Doctor how much longer do i have to take the ketoconazoles. what abt fluconozoles? Yeah my scalp is much better maybe 80% better.
Avatar n tn I am currently trying natural remedies since nothing from the pharmacies have worked. There have been many reported success from Neem Oil, Coconut Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Orange Oil, Borax, Alcohol, and Sulfur mixes... I also read that Mustard Powder may be used to kill the mites, however you need to dilute it in water and be careful how much you use, it can burn your skin very easily. Google the Demodex mite, the results will frighten you.
Avatar n tn I continued coloring mine but only once every 8-9 wks by a professional. It now grows very slow, if at all in spots. I lost a ton of hair, came out in chucks in the beginning. I wash it and deep condition it - but only every 4 or 5 days. Used to wash my hair daily. I've used olive oil & coconut oil prior to washing. After washing, while still damp, I rub Lamisil on my scalp - works great and it's mild.
Avatar m tn Once inside, the pathogen finds that the medium chain fatty acids are actually much smaller than the fatty acids that make up its own outer casing and this begins to break apart the pathogen's casing. ----Ref. Dr Bruce Fife, Coconut Cures.--- You may also use coconut oil topically and also for "Oil Pulling". Just do search, if you're not familiar with it. Don't be too surprised with the lack of a diagnosis though.
1548538 tn?1293875433 didn't help with itchiness) - Aveeno baby shampoo (Gave another try on a baby shampoo, didn't work) ***OILS AND THINGS*** Add drops of - coconut oil - tea tree oil - rosemary oil - eucalyptus oil - lavender oil in shampoos, then I tried mixing oils like coconut + tea tree or rosemary + eucalyptus and add couple of drops.
