Seborrhoeic Dermatitis (Eczema)- Update!

Posted by Thatsgirly on July 8, 2009 - 10:27 pm



As promised I thought I would give you all an update on my seborrhoeic dermatits.  In my last post, I had started using  Daktacort cream on my face, which has active ingrediants of hydrocortisone and miconazole nitrate. Although I was a bit apprehensive of using hydrocortisone on my face I noticed a dramatic difference within 1 weeks useage.


After I completed 2 weeks of using Daktacort cream day and night as prescribed by the doctor, I started to use Aloe Vera gel as an alternative. I was also washing my face with Nizoral shampoo in the morning on alternate days followed by Aqueous cream as a face wash. (I also wash my face with Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant every night – I can’t live without it)


Anyway, the aloe vera gel was quite plesant to use, I read several reviews saying the gel can be quite sticky, however I didn’t find this a problem. I also put the gel in the fridge (Daktacort cream has to also go in the fridge) so it was quite cooling to use. :-)


I must admit I can see a vast improvement and I think in some sense I am just relieved that I actually know what to do andhow to control it when I have a flare up.

Let me know if you have ever suffered from something like this.



  1. my dermatologist always prescribe me some corticosteroid cream whenever i have eczema. the corticosteroid cream really helps in reducing the itchiness and redness from eczema.
