seborrheic-dermatitis

Avatar n tn I have someone with red blotches on his face starting from his hairline down the side of his face to his chin. Whenever he is in the sun, these spots get brighter and they itch. The spots are not scaly. Whenever he applies a dandruff shampoo to it, it eases and goes away. He has been told that it is the dandruff that has run down to his face.Others say that it is his high alcohol consumption which is in correlation to some liver disorder. The spots tend to look like ring worm but not exactly.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it sounds like 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. You can treat flaking and dryness with over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos. Shampoo the hair vigorously and frequently (preferably daily). Active ingredients in these shampoos include salicylic acid, coal tar, zinc, resorcin, ketoconazole, or selenium.

Avatar m tn Hello, It 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. Oral antifungal drugs and immunomodulators such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are used in very severe cases.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis or rosacea. Rosacea is a medical condition presenting with redness, swelling, discoloration and sometimes pimples and dry skin over the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Avoid the sun and hot weather, spicy foods, alcohol, and hot beverages. Also try to reduce stress as it may precipitate attacks. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.
Avatar n tn 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. I suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist to get the diagnosis confirmed.
Avatar f tn Hence if your child is school going then it is unlikely to be seborrheic dermatitis. However it is often hereditary and if you have been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis, then your child carries the risk of having it in future life during adulthood. Moreover it causes redness and inflammation of skin with yellow patches or red, greasy skin covered with flaky white or yellow scales. Hence it is unlikely to be seborrheic dermatitis in your child’s case but confirmation needs to be done.

Avatar m tn I think this condition is called seborrheic dermatitis. Sometimes it heals alone, and for a couple of days every this is normal and than it shows up again. Can you please help me by telling me what may be causing this problem and how to heal it and stop it from coming again? Thanks for your help.

Avatar f tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be nummular dermatitis, ringworm or seborrheic dermatitis. Treatment of all is different. Ringworm is a fungal infection, nummular dermatitis is a sort of eczema and allergic reaction if one of its triggers.

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. Rosacea is a medical condition presenting with redness, swelling, discoloration and sometimes pimples and dry skin over the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. What exactly it is can be confirmed only after physical examination by a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn Hello, I agree with you as the symptoms are suggestive of seborrheic dermatitis or eczema. The hypopigmentation can be related to both. 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.
