I have seborrheic dermatitis and I'm using Physiogel A.I on my face, but I notice that is for dry skin, is there an alternative I can use?

Better Rx?: This isn't really the most targeted therapy for seborrheic dermatitis. You have a lot of choices. A salicylic acid face wash, or something containing ketoconazole, may be the most helpful. Your physician can guide you. Seborrheic dermatitis isn't curable but is very manageable. Best wishes. ...Read more

I had paint in my face and I washed it off with a product containing methylparaben...can this affect my seborrheic dermatitis or beard growth?

I had paint in my face and I washed it off with a product containing methylparaben...can this affect my seborrheic dermatitis or beard growth?

You're fine: This is a very common product, produced in nature, used by insects to signal each other and so-forth, and is famously non-toxic so far as anybody's been able to show. Of course, since it's in cosmetics, there are folks making stuff up about it being dangerous. You should stop reading internet "scare" stuff. If it were risky, some scientist would have made his/her reputation proving it. ...Read more

I have seborrheic dermatitis and pimples on my face and back. Pls help?

Scientific Rx: You're not going to be able to manage your acne without prescription strength medication from a competent physician. Perhaps a combination of topical benzoyl peroxide and a systemic antibiotic will prove sufficient. Seborrheic dermatitis is often easier to manage with ketoconazole or some other appropriate medication. "Pop" advice won't work (it is mostly cruel misinformation). Best wishes. ...Read more

I was exposed to the sun yesterday and my face is a little red, what should I do? Can affect seborrheic dermatitis or my facial hair growth?

Enjoy yourself: A little time in the sun is good for you. If it's going to be more than a little, use sunscreen. If you've got seborrheic dermatitis, manage it like a grown-up -- simple dandruff shampoo might be enough. Your facial hair growth is genetically programmed -- sparse or thick, be happy with what nature gave you. Frankly, I'm sorry anybody made you afraid of sunlight -- too many scaremongers. ...Read more
