Avatar f tn mjtimberwolves i have 3 tiny red patches on my scalp more likely of a pimple size and it’s not itchy, it does flakes right after i dry my wet hair, i just want to ask if it is a seborrhea dermatitis or not, by the way it’s fading,i had it for 8days now since i stopped taking my new hormonal pill.
Avatar n tn Hi I was diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis on my face about a week ago... I've been using a Cetaphil cleanser and the new Promiseb cream to treat it. I was wondering if I should also be using a moisturizer for my skin. I don't know much about fungal infections but I heard they can feed on moisturizers which only making the symptoms worse. So if anyone can help can you tell me if using a moisturizer would help? And if so what moisturizer do you recommend for SD?
Avatar n tn The underarm itch may possibly related to the scalp problem, though, because a condition called seborrheic dermatitis (seborrhea, for short) can affect both. The cause is unknown--even infants get it--but it can cause itch in both the locations you mention. Perhaps the scalp was infected from scratching, but seborrhea itself is not infectious. Seborrhea can be controlled, but it comes back when it wants to, so you needn't hold that against your dermatologist.
Avatar n tn if someone has seborrheic dermatitis patches around the lips and chin, does it means he has HIV, or is seborrheic dermatitis a common skin condition that affect many people.

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 m tn Hello, I cannot confirm without examination but apart from the possibility of eczema the possibility of seborrheic dermatitis is also there. 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. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity.
Avatar f tn The presentation does make me think of Psoriasis. Differential diagnosis is Seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn Dandruff on the face is characteristic of seborrheic dermatitis. It can be treated with selsun lotion (or shampoo) rubbed onto your rash. Persons with HIV can get severe seborrheic dermatitis but most people with seborrhea do not have HIV. that your seborrheic got worse is no reason for concern. 2. Did anyone ever got HIV from this sort of exposure No, not ever. 3. Do you believe vinyl glove will provide protection against infection and would oil temper it.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am male 36yrs old. I have had Seborrheic Dermatitis for 15yrs. I have it on my face, head, back, ears and chest. The worse area affected is my face, around my nose. I have used Steroid cream, herbal medicine, aloe vera plant and antibiotics. At present I am using Aveeno Cream and Steroid Cream 0.05%. My skin has not been clear for the last 6mths. I am also on anti-depressants as I suffer from depression due to my skin condition. Is there any advice that you can give me.
Avatar m tn the most common symptoms of atopic dermatitis are dry, itchy, red skin and seborrheic dermatitis causes flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas. My sincere advice is to get a biopsy skin done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Hello, The other possibility that I has thought of was seborrheic dermatitis since the site involved is common for both eczema and seborrheic dermatitis and they closely resemble each other in physical appearance but the lesions of seborrheic dermatitis usually presents as yellow, flaky lesions. A biopsy skin and allergy tests can differentiate between the two and confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to comment precisely beyond this stage.
Avatar n tn Seborrheic blepharitis, the most common type of blepharitis, is usually one part of the spectrum of seborrheic dermatitis seborrhea which involves the scalp, lashes, eyebrows, nasolabial folds and ears. The most common type of blepharitis is often found in people with a rosacea skin type. The oil glands in the lid secrete a modified oil which leads to inflammation at the gland openings which are found at the edge of the lid.
Avatar m tn Seborrhea dermatitis is not HIV specific.
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 m tn About one year after the first encounter, around 2005, I got mild Seborrheic Dermatitis. I have had it on the scalp and a little bit around the nose for years, and it is controlled by head and shoulders. I think it may have even come in the armpit a couple of times. The dermatologist told me not to worry but also I have had a few bouts of jock itch over the years too if I ever wear the same underwear more than a day or two. Those are my only symptoms which could point to HIV.
Avatar f tn I do have dandruff in my hair. I was diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis by my dermatologist at the age of 21. Not knowing any better when I was younger I tried everything over the counter for acne, but I didn't have acne. I definitely do not have rosacea because I never got pustules. I have tried: Metrogel Finacea Desonate Nizoral Shampoo on my face head and shoulders on my face and Desonide lotion. the only thing that works is desonide lotion.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed by my dermatologist as having Seborrheic Dermatitis however all medications that I have tried have not been working so my doctor has precribed quite a strong medication called Azapress (a generic medication for Imuran). Thus, my questions are as follows: 1. Will this disease ever go away? 2. What is the success rate for this medication to deal with Seborrheic Dermatitis and what are other options?
