What are some products to help with seborrheic/sabaceous dermatitis?

Are there any products that I could wash my body with in the shower that would help with sabaceous dermatitis?

Just a "heads up" knowledge piece. Experts are saying that the skin gets weakened by a lack of Selinium. But, supplements do little good in pill form as they don't break down right for availability. Do your research on it, but try to get a liquid form of Selinium.....a brand worth looking at is Aqua Sel. Find it, it will help. BTW, selinium is missing in our diets naturally because we have depleted the soil of it as it's a mineral.....farming practices are to blame! Aqua Sel.....specifically helps with the MANY types of dermatitis.  (+ info)

Could a staph infection be the cause of my dermatitis?

I've had contact dermatitis for over 10yrs and have just found out I have a staph infection. Is it possible that I've had this infection for as long as I've had dermatitis and once rid will my dermatitis stay away?

no way! trust me if youve had an active staph infection for over 10 years youd be dead by now. lol. it would have to be colonized for it not to kill you. which im sure it is if you dont have an open wound or anything with staph in it.
you have a little bit of staph on your skin anyways. its part of your natural flora (the germs on your skin that help prevent other infections).
but no staph does not cause dermatitis.  (+ info)

What to use for seborrhoeic dermatitis?

I have a bad case of seborrhoeic dermatitis and frankly nothing I have use works it just lessens the cause. The area around my nose gets really dry and flaky skin and I have a bad case of dandruff. I have tried using many different shampoos with various known ingredients. Also have used witch hazel and tea tree oil on my face with results not as bad but still annoying to deal with daily. Is there anything else you guys can think that I can try? It's become a bad situation to deal with everyday.

I have SD for more than 5 years.
After using number of prescription drugs I've turned to the natural treatments.
Now I use herbal remedies from serenaskin.com, which aim at the root of the disease - the immune system, and are steroid-free.
After about 2 weeks of using anti-eczema ointment and spray my skin has been cleared up and now I just continue with anti-eczema extract, which controls the immune system. My skin has been clear for months now.
It is the only treatment I have found that provides me complete relief when I use it as directed.
I would definitely recommend it.  (+ info)

Does seborrheic dermatitis cause hair loss?

Also, are there any proven natural remedies to control or rid of this condition? Any harm in using those tar shampoos over a long period of time? I am hesistant to do anything which will cause hair loss and am scared if I don't that the seborrheic dermatitis will itself cause hair loss. I also have it on face now :( Any sufferers know how to control this?

if you scratch and pick at it, yes, hair loss will occur. do you have a dermatologist? you can try stuff like t-gel products (shampoo, etc.), but you need a good dermatologist. good luck!  (+ info)

Will getting rid of dandruff "possibly" get rid of my seborrheic dermatitis on my face?

I've heard of cases where getting rid of dandruff also got rid of a patients seborrheic dermatitis. Is this true?

I've got seb. dermatitis on my face and also dandruff. Any cream I use seems to do nothing on my dermatitis. Perhaps getting rid of my persistent dandruff first might help? Do they have a connection?

wash your hair and face with tea tree oil and give up dairy products  (+ info)

Foundation for sensitive dry skin and skin with dermatitis?

My skin is dry so I use lotion and take oral medication for dermatitis and those usually keep it under control, but sometimes I want to wear foundation. This makes my skin flare up with dry patches and it hurts. I've tried so many different kinds and none of them seem to be good for dry skin. Anybody have any recommendations?

Hi there :) I have dry skin and dermatitis myself. The combination that has worked complete wonders for me was L'Oreal FUTUR.E moisturizer for normal to dry skin, and to top it off with L'Oreal True Match powder or foundation. The powder seems to work better with me and causes me to sweat less. They both last all day on my skin, don't clog my pores and did not cause any breakouts.

Hopefully that works for you too. Good luck!  (+ info)

How to reduce seborrhoeic dermatitis dandruff?

I have Seborrhoeic dermatitis, and ive been to the doctor twice about it and gotten 2 different medical shampoos, and they work for about a month but after that they start not working anymore. I shower every morning and for the past few months ive been washing every day, will it help if i reduce the amount of wash my hair to 3 times a week or around there? Within an hour of my hair drying, i have flakes cmooing out every time i move my head! Its terrible and any help you can provide would be great!!!!

Bad news, I've had this condition for 25 years and the best you can do is keep it under control. I use betamethasone dp 0.05%.  (+ info)

I have a relaxer in my hair and have seborrhiec dermatitis. Would growing my hair naturally solve the problem?

I was recently diagnosed with dermatitis and its been slowly been getting worse. And getting constant relaxers really isn't helping with the problem and the shampoo hasn't been working. I'm just a bit desperate for a cure right now.

1] stop relaxers for a while - may or may not be making prob worse
2] comb out hair, and massge scalp before shampoo - will help 'loosen' flakes
3] use the shampoo as directed, frequently as directed
4] if no improvement after one week, ask doc for a new prescription
6] ALSO may help:
a] eat clean - avoid fried, fast, and junk foods - even diet junk foods
b] take a good multivitamin with minerals daily
c] drink 1/2 gallon of water daily  (+ info)
