Does seborrheic dermatitis means you have aids?

Not likely. Multiple possible causes. Very common condition. Likely caused by common fungus. Predisposition can be from genetics, diet, low immune system to vitamin deficiency. There are a number of treatments to include otc selnium containing shampoo (ie head and shoulders w/ selenium or selsun blue) and also prescriptions such as steroids and antifungals. If you feel you may have hiv, see your dr.
No. It definitely does not. Yes, HIV pos pts commonly have sebderm but a presenting symptom of sebderm does not mean you are HIV pos. If you are concerned about an stds due to unprotected sex or a history of other stds, get tested but don't get tested solely because you have sebderm.

Mild seborrheic scalp dermatitis may not cause any hair loss at all, just a bit itchy, flaky scalp etc...Severe case may cause some hair loss, but prompt and adequate treatment likely will allow the hair to grow back in a months. Just make sure it is not scalp fungus/ringworm as clobetasol can make it feel better initially, but actually will make the lesion bigger/worse over time. Consult doc. Read more...
