While some people get relief from seborrheic dermatitis by using over the counter or prescribed shampoos, neither has worked for me so far.
Shampoos containing an antifungal medication are can be effective for some seborrheic dermatitis suffers. All of these shampoos can be used for as long as needed. Shampooing should be done initially on a daily basis, and after that the intervals can be lengthened as tolerated. The fingertips can be used to loosen scale, and scrubbing can be carried out for at several minutes. Follow the instructions on the shampoo bottle for the best results.
Shampoos or lotions containing selenium, ketoconazole, or corticosteroids may be prescribed for severe cases. To apply shampoos, part the hair into small sections, apply to a small area at a time, and massage into the skin. Shampoo containing ketoconazole has helped many patients with seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp. This is actually a shampoo that I don’t believe I’ve tried yet?
I’ll have to check with my doctor on this one.
