Hi there! I've just been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and I'd really appreciate some help, because I'm very confused and not so sure about the diagnosis!! I'd love to hear from people that have SD and have had similar experiences.
For a few months I've been having problems with my hair. It got very tangly/matted on top, and the underneath layer was disgustingly greasy and stringy, which would NOT wash out even with clarifying shampoos. My hair was also shedding massively and I had an itchy red rash on my face (treated with cortisone cream). I went to a trichologist who looked at my hair under a camera. He said that although my scalp isn't noticably flaky, it is inflamed and gooey under the camera so it's seborrheic dermatitis, and gave me a medicated shampoo. I also had low iron levels so I'm taking supplements.
After using the shampoo the tangles are better but the greasy stringyness is still there. This doesn't make sense to me - I know SD would give a greasy/flaky scalp but why would half way down my hair be stringy and not wash out?!? It looks disgusting and it's really upsetting me. Has anybody had a similar symptoms and how do you get rid of it??
