Can seborrheic dermatitis interfere with hair growth?

Can seborrheic dermatitis interfere with hair growth?

Not really...: Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory condition thought to be related to an over abundance of a bacteria called pityrosporun ovale. The immune system recognizes this bug and attacks it and in the process causes the skin to get inflamed red and itchy. This induces scratching which can then lead to hair breakage which gives one the impression that they are loosing hair but the root is not damaged. Read more

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.

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?

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
