1282085 tn?1271751116 , shampoo three times a week and after the shampoo, topically apply Olive Oil or Tea Tree Oil to my scalp and face. My face has been clear since last week and a half after a week of that but I know that it will surface again. Now you suggested mild steroids and antifungals - what particular items are best? I am willing to spend the money if its a sure tail thing that it will work.
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 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 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 Hi, I'm sorry to hear what you have been through for the past months. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic condition that can be controlled with treatment. The severity of seborrheic dermatitis can be lessened by controlling the risk factors and by proper skin care. Over-the-counter dandruff or medicated shampoos is usually indicated for the flaking. However, shampoos or lotions containing selenium, ketoconazole, or corticosteroids may be prescribed for severe cases.
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 Recommended treatment is to gently rub the spots with olive oil and brush them off with a dry washcloth, or comb them out of the hair with a soft brush or fine comb.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 Now, I will say the olive oil way works but you must stay on top of it.. olive oil night #1, night #2, night #5, #9, and every 4th night for 21 days. Mayo.. do not do at night. Leaving on a child while sleeping risks the child getting salmonella. Do it early am (6am? 7am?) and leave on until at least 9 hours have passed. Comb through while the may is in the hair (out in the sunlight is best so that you can see the nits and aren't reinfesting the house.
Avatar m tn So have you any problems with dermatitis or acne before this? Such that you were on long term treatment or acne? Do you have a lowered immune system or have diabetes? Have past damage to the skin due to injury or surgery? Do you regularly wear tight clothing that can trap heat and sweat? Any reason you could have HIV? Or have you had a regular check up which included a complete blood count? Been in a not so clean hot tub? Are you very over weight?
1548538 tn?1293875433 com/articles/amazing-benefits-of-neem-oil-for-skin-and-hair), used by Bishnoi people in India (though it's stinkier than olive oil, it's supposed to help promote hair growth from the roots). Soaking and washing hair with VINEGAR, then OLIVE OIL (5mins and 30mins), helped me before to get lice eggs out of my hair hair is very dry so doesn't respond well to harsh lice shampoos. After the natural treatment, the granules streamed out when showering with water, hope that works for you too.
Avatar f tn Hello - I too have had the same issue with reoccurring angry red lesions that turn scaly, particularly on my cheek and either side of my nose. After loads and loads of research I figured out that is was probably 'Seborrheic Dermatitis' - I suggest that you use Google Images to take a look at others affected. The most effective treatment (that I have discovered) is to use simple Head & Shoulders as a facial cleanser.
Avatar n tn Hello, From these symptoms it looks like seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrhoeic Dermatitis is believed to be an inflammatory reaction related to the proliferation of normal skin habitant Malassezia – a yeast, which produces toxic substances that infect and irate the skin. The disease is neither contagious nor related with diet but it may be aggravated by other illness like Psychological stress, immune compromised patients, neurological diseases like Parkinsonism and stroke.
Avatar n tn Been treated for blepharitis, seborrheic dermatitis, and allergies. Whenever I start another treatment I have a short period of relief. It always comes back...longest time without symptoms 10 days. Like eveyone else, I have thrown all makeup, lotions, and soaps away. Washed sheets, pillow cases, and put pillow in the dryer. This has become debilitating and I am becoming depressed. I have a high profile job and don't want to be seen because I look like I have some awful disease.
Avatar f tn A fungal infection may also be considered as a differential but may easily be differentiated from seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis may be recurrent.
Avatar n tn have you tried using a small amount of olive oil? And if i were you i would try to change your body soap to Carress. I've had the same problem but not as severe as yours. Do you notice it much worse after shaving? Using olive oil and changing your soap may help. Although I m not a dr. any advice is worth it until you get a chance to make an appointment with a dr. I also figure olive oil considering that is what they tell ppl to use on there dry scalp.. I hope this helps ya out!!
288415 tn?1231634102 tea tree oil (not staight oil in the ear though dilute first!!!), paud'arco, garlic, olive leaf extract (seagate is a good company), olive oil, gse, PROBIOTICS, digestive enzymes, wild oregano oil, NO REFINED SUGAR, chlorophyll, and no antibiotics are a start. however, i understand the bind. I have 4 young kiddos as well and one is lovingly sqeezing my nanas right now wanting to nurse hence the bad typing & such.
Avatar n tn plus, like you said, overdrying will lead to more oil. There is a 100% cure..... If you go to your derm and beg him to put you on accutane, the oil will surely clear up within days..... I did this the first time around...but the problem is you have to wait 30 days before you will get the prescription because you need to have two negative pregnancy tests. But that's last resort if nothing else works.... Please try the palmolive/apple cider vinegar and let me know if it works.
Avatar n tn Once it stops etching, I take out my feet and dry those with a towel, without rubbing. 2- Soon after I apply some oil (may be brassica oil, olive oil or whatever natural oil i can get) to it... As soon as I feel my skin drying, I apply oil again. Usually 4 to 5 times in 4 to5 hours. This not only stops etching for 4 to 5 hours, but gradually reduces the intensity of inflamation as well. I repeat this after every 5 to 8 hours.
Avatar f tn So you may not be sick and have it. If you have Seborrheic dermatitis it often makes you more likely to have it. Also, if your body produces a lot of oil it is more likely to get it. People in countries with higher heat and humidity have more of it. Also,cosmetics, lotions, sunscreens, emollients, olive oil can make you susceptible. These yeast live off of olive oil.
Avatar f tn I've been curious about the lazer treatment but thought it would be better suited for someone with just acne and not overproduction of oil. I figured how can it make oil production less from the skin's surface. But you're saying that it helped with the oil?? I may have to give that a try.... how much did you pay for your treatment? at this point i'll try anything. I'm experimenting with spearmint tea right now.
