Hi, I have Seborrheic and i use medicated shampoos(scalpe) for this. My hair remains dry as i have not applied hair oil for over 2 years now.Since i am also undergoing hair regrowth therepy using mintop5% and Finax,my dermatalogist suggested not to use hair oil as the medicine will not be effective.

I used Mintop solution(5%) for 25 days regularly.But when it get into my eyes by mistake I stopped to use it for 8-10 days (afraid if it were a side effect) and after that I again started its use.Till now I used it for more than 2 months(some times applied with coconut oil as my doctor said it will not have any side effects).Within this period I notice there some new hairs but with this there are also some grey/white hair in separate areas.For the time I am having 4-5 grey hair(visible to me in mirror).Should I stop its application or should I ask doctor to some other medicine/lotion.Will these grey hair turn to my hair color & how long would it take.Please guide me what will be best to resolve this problem.

I have had a small red patch on my neck for around 4 weeks now but in the last week it has started to spread, the colour is less prominent but the area is growing quite large. I also have seb derm on my face especially the brow region and wondered whether it could be related to this. I am currently at university and the earliest doctors appointment is a date when I have returned home for the summer, are there any over the counter items I could buy to help with this?

For years, I've had chronic thick white ear flaking in my left outer ear (much less in my right). I clean it and within 24 hrs or less, more flakes have returned. Have tried an anti-dandruff shampoo in my ears -- This doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
