Which is the most effective cream for seborrheic dermatitis facial region (ketocanzole 2%, ciclopirox 1%, or pimecrolimus 1%)?

Ketoconazole. Ketoconazole is my preference. Apply 2x/day for 1-2 weeks, and then you can use a couple of times/week as maintenance/prevention. Short term use of 1% hydrocortisone cream 1-2/x day can be used for a few days also to minimize redness and irritation. Don't use hydrocortisone frequently due to side effects, including the thinning of the skin in this area. Read more...
