I have Seborreic Dermatitis since 1 and half years ago. Now I started treatment because my condition going worse and I've lost too much hairs. My hair normally very strong and beautiful, but due to the disease, my hairs become very dry and now my face also affected, it causing oily skin and pimples. My Dermatologist give me 2 Lotion namely, Hivate and Clotrimazole 1% and a shampoo with 3% salicylic, but the fungus or yellow flakes not removed completely, when I washed my hair with the shampoo, then I see that my hairs bound with some types of dandruff or yellow flakes and it hard to remove it from the comb, and then I combed the hairs, some types of flakes falling out along with some hair fall. I am not sure whether my Derm. would prescribed my ant anti-fungal medicine or not. But I need to completely remove it from root, so what do you think now? Should I talk with my Derm. about anti-biotic? or what should I do? bcz I dont want to lost more hairs now and I want to see my face completely fine...
I have seboreeic dermatits, give me solution?

Thanks for your reply....
But what about anti-fungal medicine? I read everywhere that oral medicine is necessary to remove the fungi, otherwise it come out again?
And the hair I loss in 1 year, will it grow back? my age is 21 years.
You don't need anything else. The flakes are part of the dermatitis and should come out. It just means you have to clean your comb, and a fine toothed comb works best, to get them out. After you wash your hair (and you should do that every day) you should comb it with a fine toothed comb and comb the flakes out. It won't all come out the first time, it takes treatment and time. As they come loose comb them out. You should wash your face with the liquid too. To clean your comb use a towel and wipe it well. After you use it wash it with soap and water. I had a patient had the same thing, and it took a while to get it all out and then her hair improved too.
