Seborrheic: dermatitis or "dandruff" can be initially treated with Selsun Blue shampoo in the scalp. Dabbing it on the nose may help. Use as directed . If not improved after a few days, please see a dermatologist.

See a dermatologist: Why do you have this? Are you sure it is candida (yeast) overgrowth? NO VITAMIN belongs in this discussion! You can begin by taking a daily shower using shampoo on scalp and using the foam to wash face ears and face. Useful products include ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, salicylic acid, tar, and zinc pyrethione.
