I have a light seborrheic dermatitis on my forehead and cheeks. What is a good over the counter treatment to fight the scaling and to reduce the redness from it.

Seborrheic: For your face and cheeks as opposed to your scalp like most people deal with, I would suggest you start with some OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream just on the affected areas twice a day until the lesions clear up and then stop the cream so your skin doesn't get used to the cream and have other issues as a reaction to chronic hydrocortisone use and then just use as needed. ...Read more

For acne and dark spots on the t-zone, what type of cream or moisturizer is recommended?

For acne and dark spots on the t-zone, what type of cream or moisturizer is recommended?

Acne and dark spots: Pimples on your face's T zone can be hard to manage, because the forehead, nose and chin can be oily at the same time the area around the mouth and cheeks are dry and flaky. The T zone is prone to pimples and blackheads because there are more oil-producing glands in those areas, according to TeensHealth. Although pimples in the T zone can be frustrating, you can control them with patience and proper care. Step 1 Wash your face with warm water and a mild cleanser twice a day, in the morning and at night. Massage the cleanser into your face without scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with warm water; cleanser remaining on the skin can clog the pores, causing pimples and blackheads. Step 2 Saturate a cotton ball with a toner containing salicylic acid, recommends "Seventeen." Smooth the toner over your T zone. Alternatively, apply an over-the-counter skin care product containing benzoyl peroxide, which will dry oily T zone areas and decrease bacteria that can cause pimples and blackheads.
