Hi, I was wondering if you guys can tell me what you use to control the Seborrhoeic Dermatitis on your scalp?
My vertex and the back of my head is constantly inflamed, tender with a tingly feeling or gets itchy.
My hair is thinning out only in those areas as well.
My dad is in his early 60’s and has the same condition yet his hair is still thick. My mom also has tenderness around her vertex area. So I’m guessing Seborrhoeic Dermatitis might be hereditary.
I started using Propecia back in 2006 and it worked quite well for one year, but then after 2007, I stopped gaining hair and was only able to maintain existing hairs. I decided to shave my head completely to stop the itchiness last November but that didn’t pan out too well as the itchiness continued. So I started using Nizoral and Head & Shoulders everyday and the two products combined worked amazing. I gained a lot of my hair back (by reversing miniaturization), and it has thickened to the point where its now the envy of my female friends. Unfortunately, the top of my scalp and the back still remains tender and inflamed.
my question is, besides Nizoral 2% and Head & Shoulders, is there anything else I can use to help me keep my scalp condition under control? I know some of the hair loss may be attributed to MPB, but MPB shouldn’t hurt the scalp to the point where the hairs thins out and falls out. Thanks in advance.
