Will seborrheic dermatitis go away

Common Questions and Answers about Will seborrheic dermatitis go away


Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn Anything that increases blood flow to the skin will heighten redness, and running will certainly do that. I think you do indeed have seborrheic dermatitis, which will, certainly go away, though you may have to treat it from time to time. Try the ketoconazole cream for a couple of weeks regularly. If that doesn't help enough, ask your doctor to consider a mild but prescription-strength topical steroid for intermittent use. Another option would be the non-steroids Protopic or Elidel.
Avatar f tn Or this can be side effect of acne gel I was using. I also I have heard that seborrheic dermatitis happens due to yeast infection. But how is it possible If I wash my face twice daily regularly and apply anti boitic lotion on it.? I don't have flakes in or around eyebrows or eye lids.I have it around chin alot and few on nose line.
Avatar n tn i use following 2 , it control but infection keep coming, Hope it will go away one day triamcinolone acetonide cream or Ketoconazole cream
Avatar n tn I have had this condition twice. Both times the trigger seemed to be swimming in the ocean and having wet swimmers on for a little while. Nothing topical seemed to work. I went to the doctor twice and he diagnosed it as Seborrheic dermatitis. He said "we don't know why, but usually it just goes away eventually" In my cases, it did. The only advice I could give is to use a moisturiser, and don't use soap. I used a pine tar solution in the bath or shower.
Avatar m tn Bump, I guess what I am asking is if the Seborrheic Dermatitis can be controlled using the two creams I was given then why haven't I noticed any improvement over the past 4-5 months?
Avatar n tn After looking for hours on the web, I self diagnosed seborrheic dermatitis. I bought some cortizone and started using that but it didn't seem to do anything. I tried washing my face with dandruff shampoo but that irritated my skin and didn't seem to help my rash. 2 days ago the rash got much worse so I went to see my local dermatologist. After looking at my face for a minute he said I indeed have seborrheic dermatitis. He prescribed Desoximetasone Cream USP, 0.25%.
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 f tn I am asking this because I have developed itches in the last few months (about three or so) that seem to be symptomatic of seborrheic dermatitis. Things such as: an itchy scalp, itching eyebrows, itching eyes, itching chest, and itching hands. These itches come and go and only once did I have a rash on the right side of my right hand that went away after a few minutes when I moisturized them. Also, they tend to itch in the same places (same locations on my scalp for example).
Avatar m tn Although the two disorders are unrelated, a recent clinical study found that 26 percent of patients with rosacea also had facial seborrheic dermatitis. Typically, seborrheic dermatitis presents with scaly, flaky, itchy, and red skin. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates and is aggravated by sweating and humidity.
Avatar n tn This problem will come and go. could bother you every day or go away in a week and never come back. Steroids are BAD BAD BAD. They should only be used for extreme cases. The worst side effect is the fact that you will need to use increasingly stronger medications. Which will cause your skin to thin and the problem to get much worse. Stress also contributes to this problem. I would use over the counter products. some tar based shampoo's work very well. This isn't the forum for Dr Rockoff .
Avatar m tn 2) If I use the hydrocortisone cream on my face as soon as the redness appears, will this lesson the inflammation of redness and flakiness and will my skin clear up without breaking out? 3) Will Seborrheic Dermatitis eventually go away and if so how long does it take? 4) Does alcohol effect the Seborrheic Dermatitis? Any replies would be very much appreciated.
Avatar n tn My baby was dx with ISD when she was 3 weeks old. The doctor said it should go away at the most by 6 months. She's now 3 months and still has it bad. He gave us a topical steriod cream to put on it. The cream does help, however after a few weeks of applying it twice a day I decided to discontinue it's use due to the exposure of steriods. After only a few days of not using it her face looks horrible with the red, bumpy rash.
Avatar n tn The problem is the redness seems to go away, then come back worse then before. I have been to my doctor over 10 times over 3 years and always get prescribed the same thing in a slightly different form. Any suggestions or advice on this?
Avatar m tn I cant seem to get what I think is dandruff to go away.. I have tried everything.. Nizoral worked for a while, but is no longer working that well. None of the other dandruff shampoos work at all really. I also have flakes in the eyebrow area. Are there prescription pills I can take to get rid of this or a prescription shampoo that will work.. SHould I see a doctor.
Avatar f tn My bloods have been taken, but no doctor has mentioned anything. Will it eventually go away? Will the antibiotics I'm on get rid of it?
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like perioral dermatitis only. Seborrheic dermatitis could have been another possibility but it does not explain the pimples and acne. Perioral dermatitis is a chronic papulopustular and eczematous facial dermatitis. Treatment consists of oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil(non perfumed) should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided.
Avatar n tn I want to know if this is temporary and will go away or not. * Before I leave I want thank every doctor who contributes their time to help people in this site. My personal thanks to Dr.Alan Rockoff.
Avatar m tn Recently, I have been getting pimples that don't pop and keep producing a clear juice which dries yellow on the skin. They will not go away no matter what I do. I practice Brazilian jiu-jitsu so I wonder if it has something to do with the heat in the room. I take a shower in the morning and always right after practice. I use non-comodonic (sp?) face face wash and lotion. I am pretty sure they aren't staph or weird stuff from the mats....
Avatar m tn so I drank a ton of water for a few weeks and it seemed to go away on it's own after a trip to a more humid climate (had record low humidity (7%) here) ...I assumed it was dry weather because the burning seemed to go away as well. I mostly forgot about this and was trying to lose a little weight I guess [mostly caffeine and carbohydrates] and was going through a lot of stress) -- also wasn't drinking much water...
Avatar n tn There is a mild RX Steroid cream I was prescribed for my shins that works well and usually will go away in 2 days. It is a mixture of Moisturel over the counter lotion and Kenalog 40 mg. This will have to be prescribed and the Pharmacist will mix. I get this rash if I am out in the sun.
Avatar n tn The itch is gone, but there is still thick patches of the fungus on the top sides and back of my which will not go away. I'm getting very irritated with this problem since it will not go away and just want something to make it disappear. any ideas? (Also I've tried coconut oil with little success) Also on the centre top portion of my head, my hair has decreased significantly in number.
Avatar m tn it itches nonstop and iv tryed ever kind of cream I could think of to try and make it go away. It gets really bad at night and when im workin in the heat.The docters gave me steroid shots which where not affective. Also they gave me benadryl which doesnt do anything either.I am desperate for some suggestions. Iv attached a photo of the rash on my chest to show you what it looks like.
Avatar n tn Would my face have go through a withdrawl free period like this before it started freaking out? 2. I have read online this can take up to months to go away. I know the recovery period changes based on individuals, but could you take a guess at how long my it will take my face to recover? 3. Would my face even be going through withdrawl as I only used steroid cream topically as opposed to taking an oral supplement? Thanks for your help Dr.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me it was some kind of dermatitis that Im born with and I could put some hydrocortisone cream on the bumps to help them go away. So I tried that and it made me break out with pimples...I have acne as well (since the age of 14). The bumps have never itched, burned, peeled, excreted any fluid or anything like that. They are skin colored/slightly lighter than my skin tone (light skinned). What are these bumps on my face? Are they contagious and how do I get rid of them?
Avatar n tn some of the bumps will even turn white and and puss within them. I've used lotion to remove the flakyness of the area and it also helps the itch go away.
Avatar n tn Around the corners of my nose I have bright red skin with little bumps of dry, dead skin on it. Sometimes it hurts and no matter what i try, it will not go away. I have had it for five or six months now. What could be causing this and how do I get rid of it?
Avatar n tn Hi Leo, It will def go away - i've had this problem twice in the last 5 years - It usually goes away in 1-2 months, but you can control it by stripping the oil on your own. I know you've tried dish soap, but it HAS to be Palmolive. I tried dawn and that didn't work. Get the original green palmolive and apply it only to the crown of your head... lather with some apple cider vinegar and lemon juice and let it sit for a little before you get in the shower. Buy Pantene Clarifying Shampoo...
Avatar n tn I am very sure what you have is "Seborrheic dermatitis". The good news is that it is easy to treat. You will need to go to the drug store and buy a shampoo that treats it, such as; T-gel, Selsun Blue, or Denorex. If you cannot find one of these, ask the pharmacist for one that treats Seborrheic dermatitis (these do not require a prescription). You will usually feel your scalp tingling when you use the shampoo so don't let that scare you.
