Hi,Raj,
As you have got seborhic dermatits on the back,there is chances of having dandruff or other hair follicles infection in the hair.
Apply Selen sampoo on the scalp.you continue with sebowash.
If there is infection you may get pain.
ok and bye.

Hello! I am a 20 year old lady. I ve been having acne since 4 years back now. I d tried many treatments before. But,Finally now doctor suggested me Tretiva-25mg,which I started from yesterday. I wanted to clarify while under medications,what kind of soap,face wash and shampoo should I use,as the doctor suggested me not to use any of them and I don t think I would be able to stay without using any of them for the next 6 months!
