Dried scalp, itching and dandruff. Need a solution - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Please proceed with your question
I am looking for consultation regarding skin problems
what type of skin problems?
how can I help you?
since how long has she been having this problem?
What could be done to reduce the hair fall or dandruff
She is having since more than a month now
First thing is to find the cause for dandruff
dandruff can be due to fungal infection
Could it be fungal infection?
Ok. Doctor had prescribed No skurff lotion on scalp in night. Sebowash shampoo in day to wash hair.
or it could also be due to a condition called seborrheic dermatitis
and some times due to auto immune conditions
those medicines are good
can you tell me the contents of no skruff lotion?
If you have already consulted a skin specialist then, you should complete the course of medicines he/she has advised
piroctone olamine 03 ww
and if there is no improvement, then you should go back
I had asked the question on this portal.
she has skin darkening at arm pits
and doctor has presribed Lookbrite
the medicine in that no skruff has antifungal medicine
When i read the comments about it, it has been advised to avoid
but I would suggest a stronger one like KZ
So i got worried and thought to confirm with someone else too.
KZ for pigmentation?
KZ is for dandruff
for pigmentation lookbright is the correct medicine
Ok. And for pigmentation?
but it has side effects
What are they?
But the pigmentation need not be treated
Ok. Will pigmentation reduces as time passes?
Lookbright contains tretinion and hydroquinone
She is waxing. She was using hair removal creams and the patch developed
but it is not reducing
It will take time
but I would advice you not to worry too much about skin pigmentation
She has stopped when she was 21 but still it is there.
If hair fall and dandruff don't reduce then you should consult the skin specialist again
it is possible, but unlikely as the symptoms have just started
You can go back and see if a better antifungal will help her
Ok. Then PCOD would be unlikely right?
and you can consult an Gynecologist once to confirm if she has PCOD
Ok. Thanks Dr. XXXXXXX
PCOD is unlikely, but to be sure your fiance needs a complete physical exam and some ultra sound scanning
You are welcome
thanks for chatting
