I have been diagnose with seborrheic dermatitis and it has caused hypopigmentataion spots on my face what can I do please help?
Hypopigmentation: Anytime there is inflammation on the skin especially in darker skin, there could be hypo or hyperpigmentation (light or dark spots) left behind. This typically resolves with time unless further inflammation occurs. A proper diagnosis and treatment plan should be conducted by a skin doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.
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.
Anti-fungal & OTHERS: Antifungal agents work by reducing numbers of malassezia yeast in affected areas of your body. Ketoconazole is found in shampoos, foams, gels and creams. 1% concentration is (otc) and 2% is (rx) prescription. Another anti-fungal is ciclopirox is found in prescription shampoos. Other products are:tacrolimus (protopic) pimecrolimus (elidel), selenium sulfide, zinc pyrithione (otc), coal tar (otc).

No: There are numerous otc products for this: when you shampoo, also wash face with hands. Head & shoulders has 2 kinds. Nizoral, (ketoconazole) selsun, others are easily found & cheap. The generics are just as good. You can get otc Miconazole cream, Clotrimazole cream Hydrocortisone cream. If it fails to respond, see a dermatologist.
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.
