What causes dandruff in your eyebrows

Common Questions and Answers about What causes dandruff in your eyebrows


Avatar n tn ~ Admittedly, as I age my body is falling all to pieces. I used to be a damn good looking person. But like the weird wrinkles on my once somewhat-smooth rear-end... that is all behind me now. The latest affliction to afflict me has literally hit me right between the eyes. I am a 54 yr. old male.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have sensitive skin but for months I have had really bad dry skin under my beard. It's so bad that if I rub my beard, chunks of skin fall out. This also happens in my eyebrows. It is effecting my life greatly, very embarrassing. What can I do to cure this ??
Avatar n tn I looked into this more. It is possible we may hyperhidrosis. I have facial blushing and sweating of the feet as well as the sweating of the eyebrows. The eyebrow sweating is what causes the salt & the sweaty feet causes foot odor for me. I think it may all be tied into having hyperhidrosis.
Avatar m tn S and Pert and T-gel and Aspirin in my shampoo and pretty much anything else you can think of, and all it does is sting like nobody's business in the shower and make it worse. What happens is that I take a shower, wash my hair, and 7-8 hours later my scalp starts to ooze and itch horribly. A few hours later the 'ooze' hardens and looks like amber crystals all over my scalp.
1738109 tn?1331416172 Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes you to itch and have dandruff. I have spalp psoriasis so its only in my hair and sones times my eyebrows. It can be aggravated by stress. Another kind is called plaque psoriasis. This is red flaky patches all over the body. I have a friend with that one. She's miserable when she gets an outbreak. Oh and it's not contagious but it can be genetic for either kind.
Avatar f tn It's very uncomfortable, and irritating. Any ideas of what could be causing it, or what I can do to make it go away?
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, the condition has a lot of theories about what causes it, but the fact is...no one knows for sure. In response to question 1, yes...it does seem to "wax & wane" meaning it tends to get worse then will get better. I don't have a good answer for question 2 except that it certainly wouldn't hurt to try what you suggest. Question 3...again, no specific timeline that you can expect your condition to follow. Seb derm is considered a "chronic condition".
Avatar m tn You might notice the same condition around your ears or eyebrows, or even in armpits and other creases. When it's not on your scalp, it's called seborrheic dermatitis. What causes cradle cap? They don't know. Some experts believe that the hormones a baby receives from his mother at the end of pregnancy overstimulate the baby's seborrheic (oil-producing) glands, resulting in cradle cap. But there's no consensus on the cause.
Avatar f tn You don't seem to have inflammation in the body according to your results. After your appts. with the doctors, let me know what they think. Then we'll go from there. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Should you need something to soothe and refresh your eyes in the evening, they recommend using their Eye Solace. In terms of the rest of the things you're doing; I also do them every day and have been for awhile (except for the baby shampoo thing). I'm off for some allergy testing this week - have found a company Red Paw Data Services who do metals testing and I understand that they will test to see if I'm allergic to something in my eyeglasses (nickel in frame, etc.
Avatar n tn I was very interested in your post. I have had the same symptoms after my chemo. In fact, the swelling in my sinuses had more than doubled. I had to go on a steroid. It took two ct scans to figure this out; It was so painful that I couldnt even be around family. I thought I was going to die literally. Since then, I have had constant sinus infections. I understand this is common for chemo only my case was a bit different. Itoo. had neck discomfort and all the other symptoms you described.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnosed with Seborrheic Dermatitis, even though my doctor looked at my scalp for one second at most. From what I have read, it can affect the scalp, eyebrows, face, and chest, and it may be recurring. I am now using Head and Shoulders Intensive Treatment to treat my scalp, but could this condition eventually affect my face or chest? I would hate having to deal with this where it would be visible to others. If it could, is there any way I can prevent it?
Avatar f tn Pseudomonas can also cause a nasty situation, along with infection from a tooth that hasn't had that root canal yet because you're too broke to put $1200 in your mouth. In that case, you can get a bacteria that is fungal like in nature, throwing the apple cart upside down. That one is called actinomyces israelii--little crystals-like sparkles thingies. Other than the last disease, research showed a great deal of success for recovery with a good quality colloidal silver, believe it or not.
Avatar n tn Patanol and Claritin-D together do not help, whicih makes me think it is not allergies. I suspect blepharitis and have started using dandruff shampoo on hair, beard, eyebrows, and also washing eyelids per instructions I've found on internet...no real luck thus far. Any other conditions that might cause eye pain/redness? This is seriously psychologically taxing.
Avatar m tn Let me give you my full scope of odd things that have happened to me in the past two years. Two years ago my hair started thinning diffuse on the top. No big deal, a few months later i noticed a lot of dandruff. 6 months after that the sides of my scalp started to thin a little bit. Then my eyebrows started thinning the same way my hair did. Now i can visibly see hair falling out all over my scalp but the thing that worries me the most is the hair falling from my eyebrows.
Avatar f tn Hello, Causes of hair fall could be like nutrients and proteins deficiency in the hair cells, emotional or physical stress, hormonal imbalances, dandruff, and serious illness like a tumors, infectious disease and Alopecia areata.. If there is underlying disease or nutritional deficiency .Give your diet an overhaul if you're lacking vital nutrients for growth and switch to foods for healthy hair. If it's related to an illness, it can be reversed by effectively treating the underlying cause.
Avatar f tn just my forehead and all over my cheeks. But not in the areas that seem to most common such as the nose, eyelids, eyebrows or ears etc. Over the last 6 months my face seems to have gone from combination to extremely dry all over, I used to use a very light moisturiser but have now ended with the thickest one I can find because my skin just seems to need more and more moisture. Does any know know what I can try?
Avatar m tn Oral antifungal drugs and immunomodulators such as tacrolimus and pimecrolimus are used in very severe cases. Please get this possibility also evaluated from your dermatologist. 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. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Hello, Although it sounds like eczema but eczema presents with dry itchy skin. There is no itchiness in your case. So firstly seborrheic dermatitis has to be ruled out. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how your son is doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn If you see anything egg-like looking or dandruff-like looking on your skin, hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, etc., try to take a clear picture of it (or even put it in a tissue paper, then pack it properly in a zip-lock bag) and show it to your doctor. In the meantime, try not to scratch, and not to use random therapeutics. Wishing You Optimal Health, Dr.

3227684 tn?1347376665 Hello, Recently, before my exams, I have developed symptoms that can suggest, according to what I read on the Internet, a seborrheic dermatitis.
Avatar m tn hey there, I've had a similar problem before and I'm still not sure whether it was psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. The only thing that worked for me was this ointment called clobetasol propionate .05%. Fluocinonide might have worked for me also. Not sure. So Clobetasol Propionate worked for me, but it's very oily. They used to have it in cream form (without all the oil), but they don't sell it in that form anymore. So I had to deal with all the oil on my scalp for a while.
529981 tn?1212853666 Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.
Avatar m tn Does psoriasis or any other autoimmune disorders related to psoriasis run in your family? My husband's psoriasis occurred in his eyebrows and between his eyebrows and in his ears. He has the gray scaled patches on his knees and elbows. His eyebrows used to look beefy red with big "dandruff-like flakes" on them, which he was comstantly peeling off.
Avatar n tn in response to your latest post Bhupinder about the seborrhoeic dermatitis ... i dont believe it is. when im around people they get itchy in same spots around the face aswell eg nose, cheeks forehead and ears even when i refrain from scratching. im not one who suffers from anxiety so its not in my head. ive read stuff about bird mites and dust mites and it does seem to be the very same symptoms. i work in a building where there is pigeons that hang around on the roof aswell ive noticed.
1415453 tn?1282082388 she arrived the first day of our last year with the prettiest head of hair in school! now what does this mean to you? considering the issue you are facing with that spirit, i am positive this is another attack straight from the devil. girl dont get scared, get even! every time jesus defeated this cowardly foe he ALWAYS began with it is written. so in the book of Isaiah it says "He (Jesus) was bruised for our transgressions and by his stripes we are healed!
288609 tn?1240100356 Congrats on your UND!!! That is a BIG deal. What a great start. Your hemoglobin...unclear what is that at? Your ANC - absolute neutrophils, am I reading that right at .5? I don't know what it is about riba that causes rash, I just know it does. Perhaps someone else will know. I hope you get relief soon.
Avatar f tn physical, emotional, spiritual and as much as possible in your lifestyle. I hope and pray this information helps everyone who reads it. It did wonders for me. Take care and God bless.
Avatar n tn I also had this big brown line underneath my eye. Everyone who saw me would ask me what happened. It was very humiliating to go out in public. When I brought the condition to my mother's attention, she said that she thought the products I was using on my face were too harsh. At the time, I was using Clearasil face wash, Stridex acne pads, and Olay lotion. She advised me to just use dove soap and water. After a week, the condition showed very little improvement.
