Thanks
Dermatologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Thanks for sharing the photo. Well the posibilities include seborrheic dermatitis, acne and Darier disease.

What we can do is ,start topical steroids .Prescription-strength hydrocortisone, fluocinolone (Capex, Synalar), clobetasol (Clobex, Cormax) and desonide (Desowen, Desonate) are corticosteroids you can apply .

2 percent ketoconazole (Nizoral) or 1 percent ciclopirox should provide antifungal cover .

In case this doesnt improve in 4-6 wees then next option would be retinoids.

All these medications require prescription so you can discuss these possibilities / options with your skin doctor and get them prescrbed.

I hope you found it helpful.

Let me know if you have any more queries.

Stay blessed.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
