Avatar m tn Hello, 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. People with seborrheic dermatitis produce too much sebum (the natural skin oil). Later, pityrosporum yeast grows excessively in the sebum, sometime along with bacteria, making the dermatitis more persistent.

Avatar n tn Hello, If the rash has appeared suddenly then it can be due to contact dermatitis, viral rashes or seborrheic dermatitis. But if it has been present for quite some time, then it can be due to rosacea.

What exactly it is can be confirmed only after physical examination by a dermatologist.

Topical antifungals and mild steroids are the usual treatment and combination of the two can be used to treat stubborn patches. For the hypopigmentation, nothing is to be done as mild cases improve on their own.

Avatar n tn Hi, I have been getting electrolysis on my face and have recently been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if the Seborrheic dermatitis may have been caused by the damaging of the hair follicles.

Avatar f tn I have been researching this online and think it is seborrheic dermatitis. I have been using clotrimazole cream twice daily as suggested on the JUST ANSWER DERMATOLOGY site for 3 days now. My question is: what are the stages of healing of this problem? Now I have much more "crusting over" and it is very dry and more itchy than before beginning the use of the cream. By the description I've given do you think it is in the healing process? Thank you ahead of time for your opinion.
