Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis scalp care


Avatar f tn Hi You might be suffering from scalp (seborrheic) dermatitis or scalp eczema or scalp psoriasis. The exact diagnosis depends on clinical examination. Seborrheic dermatitis presents as dry skin on the scalp, which flakes off (dandruff). The skin on the face, behind the ears, eyelids, nose and chest may also be affected. Symptoms of scalp eczema may include greasy yellowish scales that may turn flake off along intensely itchy and inflamed red scalp.
Avatar m tn s a red dot underneath, and if I use a drying soap, it looks like a crater later. I also get scabs and sore spots on my scalp, which a dermatologist told me was seborrheic dermatitis. Is this the same thing? Would it have spread to my face for some reason? Pictures: http://s577.photobucket.
Avatar m tn For the last four years I feel itching, scaling and flakes on my scalp. Now only i came to know that this is Seborrheic Dermatitis. Because of this I lost almost 40% of my hairs. I learnt that this is a temporary hair loss. I tried many shampoo's like selsun,scalpe etc. And also i have been intaking Glacex(B-complex vit) tablets long time. Still My problem is not resolved. Last four year i consulted many doctors (Skin specialists).
Avatar f tn Is this the symptom of seborrheic dermatitis? is seborrheic can cause hair lost? i can see my the hair regrowth so far, but they are very thin.
Avatar n tn But a presence of a scalp condition like seborrheic dermatitis or other fungal infections may cause some degree of hair loss. However, it is necessary to note that hair loss with seborrheic dermatitis appears to be more diffused and not well demarcated or patchy. At this point, I have not encountered any effective medical therapy for hair loss. Some have tried minoxidil and corticosteroids but there is really no single effective way. For severe cases , hair transplants may be considered.
1282085 tn?1271747516 I would like to know the very best treatment options to getting rid of this forever if at all possible. How did I figure out how I had Seborrheic dermatitis..well it was via a military doctor who changed my diagnosis that rendered me entry into the military back in 2005. I am sick and tired of the dry scalp and face peeling. I have been putting Olive Oil and Tea Tree Oil on when I am on my way out the door to keep from being embarassed.
Avatar f 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 and scalp. 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 f tn Hello, Since seborrheic dermatitis is caused by overgrowth of fungus, so any dietary changes or herbal remedies is not going to help. You can however try the above mentioned treatment once the weaning starts, Till then please keep your skin well hydrated and moisturized . I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
1566037 tn?1304298609 Hello, From the symptoms it can be due to seborrheic dermatitis or eczema skin. 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). Treatment usually involves use of antifungal, anti inflammatory and sebo suppressive or Keratolytic ingredients.
Avatar f tn The symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis can be effectively controlled with a combination of self-care measures and drug therapy.Diligent washing or shampooing can control the symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis by countering the build-up of skin scales. Low potency topical glucocorticoids are usually recommended first for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis. These treatments are available in creams and lotions for the face.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am male and aged 68 .. during the past year I have found that my scalp .. I'm thining.. and more lately my forehead is not shedding my skin and that area the size of my small fingernail are becoming crusty and and remain attached to my head. After a couple/few weeks it tends to come away with a bit of help from my fingernail but then the same process starts again .. it is bad enough having it on my scalp but I am very unhappy about it on my forhead.
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 To anyone who can help. I have had a really bad case of scalp Seborrheic dermatitis for the past several years. I have tried everything under the sun to get rid of it and nothing will work. I have tried every kind of oil and shampoos. It is covering my whole scalp and they are very thick scales that even makes my hair grow slow because it has to grow through these scales. This "bout" of Seborrheic dermatitis started about 5 years ago.
Avatar n tn The most likely differential for this is a severe case of seborrheic dermatitis. The cause for seborrheic dermatitis is yet unknown and there is no definite form of medical therapy as this condition may recur. Others have associated yeast infections with it. While some have implicated stress and environmental factors. You may seek second opinion for your condition. Does anyone in the family also have a similar condition?
1473193 tn?1286922216 I have some problems with my hairs and with a scalp. Firstly I have the seborrheic dermatitis for five years, and nothing is helping, neither dozens of shampoos, nor folk remedies. And in the second place I'm loosing my hairs for last year. I can't suppose with what it may be related. My nutrition is healthy I think. I dare suggest that these two problems may be related, but i'm not sure. What would you may to recommend to me?
Avatar m tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but one possibility 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. The other possibility is of alopecia totalis, ( in this there is hairfall of scalp as well as eyebrow and eyelashes), blepharitis especially seborrhiec blepharitis, icthyosis or leprosy.
