Third best treatment


Selenium sulfide found in Selsun Blue kills the fungi (Malassezia Furfur) that causes Tinea Versiclolor. Applying the shampoo, letting it dry on for 10 minutes, washing it off, do this daily for 7-10 days may do the trick. Or .... ask your doctor for a SINGLE DOSE of Fluconazole or Ketoconazole and watch your skin clear up.

Is selsun blue + versicolor treatment normal?

Answered by:
Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis
Family Medicine

Selsun Blue is


often effective in treating tinea versicolor, a low-grade skin fungus. Apply as directed. Wash clothes, bedding, bath linens to destroy fungus to prevent recurrence. Be patient: eliminating skin funguses takes time. If OTC Selsun Blue isn't adequate, see doc for Rx for selenium sulfide lotion, which has a stronger concentration or the active ingredient.

It is a good and well known Dermatology recommendation to use the medicated shampoos for several common skin abnormalities. Some even encourage UV light therapy as another natural way to control the problem.

The


The pediatrician is referring to a condition called Seborrheic Dermatitis. It presents as flaky scalp (appears like dandruff) and dry patches on the skin. The cause is unclear. Some doctors believe it is due to a rare yeast. Treatment includes shampoos Selsun blue. I usuallly tell parents to use a very small amount 2-3 times per week until they see an improvement. Also, brush your baby's scalp with a soft brush to loosen the flakes. If the selsun blue does not work ask your doctor for an alternative treatment. To answer the last part of your question, no you dont have to let it sit on the skin or scalp, just wash in usual fashion; lotion is fine. If the spots look more red after use and it persists then discontinue and consult your doctor. If it returns to previous state then no need to worry. Take care.

choices are topicals, orals or laser. Topicals are the lease effective working about 8-10% of the time. Orals are most effective - shold monitor liver function enzymes when going on them. Lasers are better than topicals not quite as good as orals and while you don't have to monitor blood they are expensive about 750-1,000 for the treatment.
