Seborrheic dermatitis vitamin deficiency

Common Questions and Answers about Seborrheic dermatitis vitamin deficiency


Avatar n tn Hi, Seborrhoeic eczema (also Seborrheic dermatitis AmE, seborrhea) is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Soaps and detergents such as sodium laureth sulfate may precipitate a flare-up, as they strip moisture from the top layers of the skin, and the drying property of these can cause flare-ups and may worsen the condition.
Avatar m tn You may have vitamin and mineral deficiencies such as vitamin B6, biotin and zinc deficiency. For anxiety relief, take magnesium every day.

Avatar n tn I've talked to my friend's father who is a physician and he said these could be symptoms of vitamin b deficiency. The thing is, I eat good sources of vitamin b all the time. I eat bananas, chicken, eggs, and whole grain bread almost every day. But I do drink a lot of water. I would say around 2-3 gallons a day. So could my high water consumption be flushing the vitamin b out of my body?
Avatar m tn Hello, Seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea and eczema are not related to deficiency of B Complex, Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin A, C, E. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually caused by overgrowth of Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity. The exact cause of rosacea is not known. The basic process seems to involve dilation of the small blood vessels of the face.
Avatar m tn One thing also to consider is an underlying vitamin or mineral deficiency. In the case of seborrheic dermatitis, vigorous washing of the face with a mild and bland cleanser may be able to help. You may ask your dermatologist with regards to this. Application of 1% hydrocortisone cream may be also necessary at least twice a day. Do you have any known allergies? Have you been dieting lately or have been lacking sleep lately? Any increase in stress levels?
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed by several dermatologists as having seborrheic dermatitis so I use TGEL shampoo and cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. Recently I stopped using moisturizers because my skin seemed too oily and voila my skin looks very good (my blepharitis also cleared up as soon as I stopped using treatments). However my extremely flaky/seemingly dry lips remain.
Avatar f tn Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency presents with angular cheilitis (cracked corners of the mouth), atrophic glossitis (inflamed tongue) and a rash on the face that resembles seborrhoeic dermatitis. Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (vitamin B3) and presents with the three ‘d’s: diarrhoea; dementia and dermatitis on sun-exposed areas. Cheilitis and glossitis are also a feature.
Avatar n tn So these have to be ruled out. This could also be a case of seborrheic dermatitis. There is no cure as such, but it can be controlled by medicated shampoos and lotions. A tissue biopsy of the scab and underlying tissue may be required to reach a diagnosis. Hope this helps. Please consult a skin specialist. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar f tn The first possibility if of seborrheic dermatitis which presents as flaky,dry, white to yellowish scales to form on oily areas esp under the nose or anywhere on face. The second possibility is of vitamin B deficiency and the third possibility is of atopic dermatitis. Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve. If the symptoms persist then please get these possibilities ruled out.
Avatar f tn Parasthesias are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, nerve irritation, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the symptoms are gone or not.

1392153 tn?1428627923 Biotin deficiency isn't common, unless you frequently eat a lot of raw egg white, which contains a protein that blocks the absorption of biotin. Genetic disorder of biotin deficiency, infant seborrheic dermatitis, surgical removal of the stomach, and excessive alcohol consumption may increase a person's requirement for biotin. Biotin deficiency may lead to skin rash, hair loss, high cholesterol and heart problems.
681148 tn?1437665191 Hello, Dryness of scalp can be due to hormonal imbalance, poor health, poor hygiene, allergic hypersensitivity, lack of rest, emotional stress, excessive consumption of sugar, fat or starch, heredity predisposition and medical causes like eczema, atopic dermatitis or seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn I was just diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, and after reading about it I found it can also affect the eyebrows. It is a chronic but relatively easy to treat skin condition that supposedly results from too much oil on the skin and commonly affects the scalp and eyebrows, but can also affect the face and chest. I have no idea if this is it, but I have been experiencing a little hair loss on the scalp, but once treated, the hair will grow back.
5595906 tn?1370583245 For your dandruff, get seborrheic dermatitis also 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 doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.

Avatar m tn Parasthesia due to dysfunctioning of neurons which can be due to diabetes, hypothyroidism, peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency, neurological causes or malnutrition. You can take vitamin B 12 supplements for some days. Foods rich in vitamin B 12 like meats and poultry can also be taken. Also get your blood usgar levels and thyroid hormone levels checked.
Avatar f tn I went to the dermatologist on 3/24/15 because I have had a sore on the top of my scalp plus I have a real bad case of seborrheic dermatitis and because my face is red. Mostly my cheeks and nose. After her asking me a few question and also looking at my back and chest she told me she didn't think the red on my face was rosacea and that she was going to order blood work. I have been to dermatologist before and have never had them send me for blood work.
Avatar m tn Go to another doctor, or prescribe yourself the standard blood panel including vitamin D3, B12, and MMA. As you know, a vitamin B12 deficiency will always cause pernicious anemia.One of the resjuts of PA cold be autonomic Neuropathy which causes irregular heartrates. Your ED can be a result of the same deficiency or even very low cholesterol. Get your testosterone checked. If it is low---and given your symptoms, it probably is. Get a Tribulus Terrestris supplement.
Avatar m tn I guess with all of the spotlight on former NFL/New Orleans Saints star Steven Gleason I've become so paranoid about ALS that it's driving my nerves up the wall and I always gravitate towards the worse possible scenario. I'm a relatively healthy ( I have Seborrheic Dermatitis) 34 yr old male. The spasms are barely even noticeable and aren't consecutive and usually is not even in the same spot more than once. Of course my paranoia and fear has made me do a bunch of research on ALS.
Avatar m tn The doctor said it was seborrheic dermatitis and gave me coritcosteroid cream...which I overused, and which I wonder if contributed to the shingles (other than my idiotic lifestyle at the time.) I have been anxious/angry lately over being separated, and before much of this recent bout began, though after the fasciculations, I had an attack of anger/hypersensitivity, and I wonder if this ushered in much of whatever this is/these are. I hope this makes sense.
Avatar f tn Plus, with the development of several chronic dermatitis issues from tx (Rosacea, Seborrheic Dermatitis), the sun only makes all of that get much worse. I also have now found that I can get sunburned, in my car, through my clothes, if I am sitting in the car with sun streaming in a window...often with little red bumps, and a rashy reaction! That is just weird!!! Be careful with the sun, is all I will say. Especially ON tx!!!!!
Avatar n tn Adrenal fatigue symptoms include low blood pressure, low body temperature, difficulty falling asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, afternoon slumps, sensitivity to noise, muscle weakness, super sensitive skin, poor tolerance of heat, oily hair. Seborrheic dermatitis may be caused by oily skin or hair. A seasonal affective disorder study showed cortisol levels were lower in winter. Worsening adrenal fatigue during winter might explain your labwork (cortisol is an anti inflammatory).
612876 tn?1355518095 I think the stuff related to the oil glands on my lower eyelid (which I believe he said is affecting the oil layer of my tear film, for those who have really gotten in-depth in studying dry eye) he has narrowed down to either being related to my seborrheic dermatitis or possibly a just barely onsetting case of rosacea. So I'll skip that part because I don't think it's particularly relevant to dysauto (though if anyone has similar issues and wants more info, I'm glad to answer questions).
Avatar n tn My hair is sarting to become grey.I have seborrheic dermatitis and Iam used to use selsun blue shampoo (that contains selenium) but today I read that it increases the graying of hair when used as shampoo,but may improve the graying if used orally as antioxidant. but i wonder that "Funnily enough, one sign of an overdose of seleniumSelenium - an antioxidant is hair loss." I wish that more studies to be done concerning it. I read that it has an antioxidant activity 50 times as vit.E.
Avatar f tn I wash my hair every day, with a sulfur-free shampoo. My blood tests all came back in a normal range, with a slight deficiency in vitamin D. I've tried all the dandruff shampoos on the market and none of them offer much relief. Please help me. I have been incredibly unsuccessful at finding a doctor who could give me any clue as to what is happeneing. And my fear of these pimples/scabs of permanently damaging the hair follicles increases by the day. What could this be?
