How successful is selsun blue for seb dermatitis in comparison with Nizoral (ketoconazole) and neutrogena t/gel ?
Shampoo for seb derm: Selsun blue and neutrogena t-gel are excellent shampoos for mild seborrheic dermatitis. Prescription Nizoral (ketoconazole) shampoo tends to be somewhat better than otc products, however, they all treat the seb derm somewhat differently, so i recommend alternating two or three shampoos when treating seborrheic dermatitis and washing hair 3-7 times a week if possible. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Treatment of lice: requires accurate identification of nits & / or lice. A pediculicide is usually used- OTC like Nix (permethrin) or RID or prescription meds like lindane or malathion.

Shampoos: Shampoos remove much more hair oil than regular soap, and it's important that you apply a hair conditioner after shampooing to restore normal hair texture. If a dermatologist doesn't find any medical problems causing hair loss, I recommend that you have a skilled beautician evaluate your hair status and instruct you on proper hair care techniques. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I used Nizoral (ketoconazole) anti dandruff shampoo accidently instead of selsun blue to get rid of skin irriation and it make my scrotum red/dry any suggestions?
Shouldn't cause any: The Nizoral (ketoconazole) should not cause any problems in the scrotal area. The Nizoral (ketoconazole) is an anti-fungal shampoo, so could help with jock itch in the scrotal area. The selsun blue is selenium- more for the scalp dryness and therefore helps the dandruff. ...Read more

Serious Rx: You've already got acne scarring. This would not have happened if you'd gotten cared for by a scientific physician. Acne is a serious, chronic, non-lifestyle-related disease, a major personal and professional liability, that can be managed by 21st century care. With many blackheads, a topical retinoic acid derivative is a good choice; since scarring's present, likely an antibiotic also. Go for it. ...Read more

Blue Star is: Camphor and lard. I don't see how either of those things would get rid of a fungus. If you know you have a fungus, use an otc anti-fungal product like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin (tolnaftate) 2x / day for at least 30 days. Your fungus will clear up in 3-5 days, but since fungal spores live 30 days, you need to use it that long or it'll recur. ...Read more

Dandruff blues: Dear KMcClure, Dandruff can be caused by dry skin, allergies, fungal infection, or irritated skin. I would recommend to alternate shampoos between an anti-dandruff shampoo and non anti-dandruff shampoo. If your dandruff is already controlled using selsun blue 2-3x a week should work. For natural anti-dandruff products look for a shampoo with tea tree oil or even an essential oil of it. ...Read more
