A rash suddenly started to appear on my face (mostly forehead) around 6 months ago. It's red with tiny bumps in various spots, and some larger pimple-like bumps have recently started to appear. It was diagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis. It's not classic seborrheic dermatitis in that it doesn't itch and isn't flaking at all. I've been experimenting, and am hoping someone here has some experience that will be helpful to me. I have oily skin that I wash twice daily, once with a salicylic acid scrub, and once with Cetaphil lotion. I was prescribed (generic) Lotrisone and Ketoconazole by a dermatologist. He strongly favored Ketoconazole, but it doesn't help and actually seems to cause pimples and to make it spread. Lotrisone keeps it under control, but the rash returns as soon as I stop using it. I discovered recently that sun exposure can clear it up completely without medication. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Am I stuck with this (and using a steroid cream) for the rest of my life, or is there something like a "cure" or effective over-the-counter treatment that doesn't involve steroids? I'll try to upload a photo of what it looked like before I started to treat it (after a period of experimenting with Ketoconazole-only for 2 weeks, it's currently much worse). I'm a 63-year-old male in good health with Mediterranean ancestry. Thanks ahead of time.

I have always had on and off acne and bowel problems, but both issues subsided until about a month ago. My last doctors visit was around march and I was advised to start taking Magnesium and Coq10 in combination with Topomax for headaches so that I didn't have to take a muscle relaxer, so I did ...
How do I get rid of the huge rash on my legs which I think is from Metformin? The rash on my arms which covered an area about 3" x 8" went away with steroid cream from the dermatologist. Nothing helps the rash on my legs which is round or oval-shaped red ar, rough areas. Very red, dry and ...

Has anyone else experienced a rash from being on metoprolol? I have been on it for years and developed a rash on my legs. The rash cleared up with steroid cream but has now started on my arms, lower back, and neck.
I had a sinus infection and took sudafed as directed for 2 1/2 days. On the 3rd day I developed a rash on the top half of my body. I took Benadryl and slept it off and woke up the next morning with hives all over my body.
I developed a rash on my right leg then another on my left arm then my right arm. I called my doctors office. They said it was not from the pradaxa. I had been on pradaxa for 6 weeks.
