Avatar n tn When I saw the dermatologist she did not want to treat me for this area instead she wanted to first treat me for this other skin condition that she felt was seborrheic dermatitis. For the last seven years, onset was during my pregnacy with my twins, I have had a slightly reddend area that has somewhat of a hyper exfoliation to it. I have managed to keep this area not a problem by being extremely careful of what I use on my face.
Avatar n tn So my derm diagnosed me with seborrheic dermatitis, they gave me all sorts of shampoos to try but none work. I've had this for months now, and finally after expermimenting with different diets i found that food was not causing it. The seborrheic dermatitis that is all over my hair is also all over my face and now spreading to the back of my ears and side of my neck. I finally concluded the reason why i get it. It seems everytime i was my hair even if i use just water i get a flair up.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms the first possibility to be ruled out is of 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. 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 m tn Hello, The scalp burning and itching can be an allergic reaction to the oil that you are using. Change the particular brand of oil and instead use light oils like olive oil etc. Also get other possibilities like seborrheic dermatitis, alopecia aereta and telogen effluvium 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.
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 m tn First, the dandruff was stuck to my scalp and I started using lots of olive oil. It took a whole year to loosen the drandruff. I keep my hair shaved off until my scalp can heal if ever. I am female. Now my hair is very sticky at the root. At the same time my scalp is very hard and dry. I would like to put moisture in my scalp. Help! I was told not to use moisturizer in my hair while using olive oil what should I do? I am unemployed I can afford a doctor either.
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 f tn I've heard things like olive oil applied to the scalp may help, but I've not tried it out yet. My scalp gets red and very irritated and itchy....its a major issue in the winter time more than the summer..but it does stick around year round. Any suggestions? I don't want to spend more money at another doctors i'm looking for some natural remedies.
Avatar m tn Without examination it is difficult to confirm the diagnosis but for this red scab, psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis are two important possibilities which should be looked out for. You can use shampoos with keratolytic action. For this apply the shampoo on the wet scalp, leave it for some time and then wash off the shampoo. You can also use simple olive oil on the scab and leave it overnight. Then shampoo the hair the next day and see if the scab comes off.
Avatar m tn I read online to try Olive oil so I am trying that now. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
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 n tn I also put oil and vinegar on my salads if I go out to eat. I cook mostly with olive oil. supplements include centrum silver and fish oil. I use tresemme 2 in 1 shampoo right now, sometimes teatree mint conditioner, and dermarest psyorisis sometimes. I have used ketakonazal (sp) shampoo in the past. creams include ketakonazal cream and elidel. Any suggestions on how I can control it better? It is very frustrating.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis or tinea capitis which is a fungal infection of the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin condition that causes flaky, dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas on scalp 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 Do you wear glasses? If so use some alcohol to clean the glasses periodically. Try using some olive oil to treat the dry skin and itching. Have you started using some new facial cleansers or moisturizers lately. If so discontinue, use the olive oil. If it improves you know it could be the moisturizer. Good luck, you may want to seek medical advice if this does not help. Could be some form of psorisis (Sp?

Avatar f tn Dry scalp, dandruff, scalp psoriasis, or seborrheic dermatitis. The bad part is, I just washed my hair on Monday night. I washed it, conditioned it, put a little of olive oil (food-grade), then I braided my hair in about 8 plaits. I have to wash my hair every week b/c of my scalp. I'm unable to wear twist-outs/braid-outs or any hairstyle that requires me to wear my hair out. I can't wear puffs or Afro's. I have to wear a half-wig daily and I take it off nightly.
Avatar f tn My scalp is still alittle itchy on the days I don't wash and it feels sore in some areas. I put oil on my hair right before washing, I use olive oil or jojoba oil, but I read that they contain oleic acid, so not sure if I will continue that. Should I continue to use oils? I am afraid to use conditioners as I don't know if it is helping? Also, I was thinking of using shampoos that do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate? will that help?
Avatar f tn Almost all babies during their first months experience getting cradle cap. Cradle cap and seborrheic dermatitis are considered non-infectious skin conditions, which (unlike other types of eczema) are hardly itchy or irritating. "Cradle cap is thought to be related hormonal changes in the mother during pregnancy that stimulate oil glands. It usually starts to show during the first months, and can last until your baby reaches his first year.
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.
Avatar f tn About a month ago I also bought some Hair Nourishing Serum from a health store and eventually combined with tamanu oil (cuz my 3yr old daughter has bumps on her arms and thighs that I can't get to go away either and the guy said maybe I could try that since it made another girls severe acne go away they call it miracle oil and cremes from the dr hadn't helped he) so I thought maybe mix that with the nourishing oil, and then added extra virgin olive oil to it, i've also tried tea tree oil thru t

Avatar f tn I've tried using the most gentlest washes I could find, even making my own with the Thyme, Rosemary, chamomille and calendula (no soaps), which didn't feel all that clean, and no problems at all with it, but didn't actually help the condition of the skin. I've even tried using Olive oil on my skin.
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.
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 f tn I have chronic pain, bloody noses on a weekly basis, bloody gums, fatigue, anxiety, a swollen lymph node in my neck, I've had a benign mass removed from my breast, have a small cyst on my thyroid gland, athletically induced asthma, IBS, excessive sweating at times of the armpits and hands (can be due to temperature or anxiety), and seborrheic dermatitis.

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 n tn I started taking my thyroid medicine since a week ago. I have not used anything on my face but olive oil to help with the dryness. It now has spread to my right eye. It looks like the skin all around the eyes in burned. Its a swollen, red and it itches a bit. I'm sure tomorrow the ski will be so hard like a shell. I've been drinking a lot of water and now am drinking cranberry juice. I'm so scared. I don't know what else to do. What else can I try? what doctor can I see?
