Conditions with symptom: 'dermatitis'
Hi! Seborrhoeic dermatitis, the best treatment? Joseph Bark notes that "Redness and itching is actually seborrheic dermatitis, and it frequently occurs around the folds of the nose and the eyebrow areas, not just the scalp. This is from Wikipedia, I have this symptoms. Thanks Sveta.
I have these symptoms too. I was told by my GP to take cetirizine hydrochloride, it is an anti-histamene, u take one daily, it helps along with a steroid cream that you put on the irratated areas. As long as you use regularly it really helps.
I have had dermatitis around my eyes and eye lid for te past 2 years.. It can get quite itchey and sometimes my eye lids swell and it is difficult for me to open my eyes. I wear contact lenses and have done for over ten years. Would the contact solution suddenly start irritating my eyes? I also wear make up but try to use natural products because of my sensitive eyes. I also try to use products on my skin that are not harsh like Simple. My GP gave a me a cream 2 years ago to help woh the dermatitis. It helps it go away for a few days, and then it flares up again. I am reluctant to go back to my GP as I feel he will just give me the same cream which only seems like a temporary measure. What can I do to help it go away?? Thanks, K

I have had this dermatitis on my head and it is hard to treat, everything I have tried isn't working and it is constantly itching and it is sore. what do you suggest?
i have had dermatitis on my face since i was 14 i am now 27 and its worsened, its all round my chin and nose. its very red and sometimes little spots appear and it feels itchy sometimes too. im very depressed because of it sometimes wont leave the house. please help, nothing the dermatologist has given me has worked.
Hey i had a really bad rash appear on my face in september and doctors told me it was contact drmatitis but stopped using anythin on my face apart from the creams i was prescribed. It got worse and worse so i went to a dermatoligist who told me that it was perorial dermatitis which is mainly caused by the overuse of steroid creams so if u using alot of steroid cream stop them straight away. I was given anti biotic tablets called oxytetracycline which really has cleared it up. Unfortunately i was on them for 5 months and didnt notice anythin until after the first month. My skin is so clear now and use a moistoriser called cetraben which is great. Hope this helps!!!!@

It makes me really self conscious about wearing short sleeves and i was hoping someone might be able to help! I've tried things like e45 and urea cream but they dont make it go away properly- what should i do?!
