I have keratosis pilaris. Can I use anti dandruff shampoo selsun blue and urea cream and retin a (tretinoin) before bedtime?

Of course. It may actually help. "KP" is very common and will come and go probably for the rest of your life. If you take good care of yourself, your fitness and otherwise good health and how you carry yourself will keep anyone from noticing or caring about your skin. Several of my physician friends have it; they just laugh about it. Best wishes.

Moisturizer. This is a manifestation of dry skin and regular application of any moisturizer within 3 mins after bathing often controls it.

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.

Won't blind you. It'll heal itself. You're almost a grown man and need to get fears that you must surely recognize as unrealistic under control. You list "anxiety" as a problem -- this would be a great time talk with a therapist or counselor about why you have such fears as this and what you can do to be happier as life goes on. Read more...

I am using selsun blue dandruff shampoo & I notice I have more hair loss & more oily hair. But the dandruff are controlled, should I stop using it?

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...
