I have sebhorreic dermatitis in the scalp, behind the ears since I was a kid. It started on my forearms and used to go to bed at night with ointment and saran wrap wrapped around my forearms. The forearm problem went away growing up and today still with the scalp and behind the ear problem and doctor gave me meds which work great. Now am embarrassed about having it on one side of my vaginal area of the labia from front to back. Embarrassed to tell doctor. This has started ever since I was put on birth control pills when I was 18. Through the years on and off itching down there. Also I been on antibiotics a year ago fighting a gum infection and it gave me yeast infection down below. I can get rid of the yeast infection what can I use to get rid of the sebhorreic dermatitis on my labia of vagina. It's driving me crazy with the itch and scaling and flaking. I try not to scratch but I end up doing it. It kind of spread to the buttock part of skin--not the anal area but on the left side of it. What can I use to get rid of this mad itch scratch itch cycle. I need to heal the skin down there. What's safe for down there and strong and effective? It's only on the left side. Maybe because I lay down on my left alot, who knows LOL. Hope someone can help me, thank you.

oh honey, i feel for you. i had that once, for a few days--and it was AWFUL. i can't imagine if it had been more long term.

have you tried putting your medicated ointment on it?

the first step is gettin it calmed down and under control.

if you have a cortisone cream, use that, but sparingly--depending on how strong it is, you may want to mix some other cream into it, half and half, so that it's not too harsh.

if you have any of the immunosupressent creams (like protopic) i would also try that.

try to be careful about ONLY putting it on the outer labia, not the inner, where the skin is SO thin.

if you don't want to do the medicated cream thing, i would suggest coconut oil, or a calendula cream.

you want something s natural as possible, with NO fragrance, and as few ingredients as possible.

good luck!

I have eczema, atopic dermatitis for the past 10 years. One of the treatments that bring relief is a lukewarm bath made with 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of
epson salts. It will sooth, calm down the irritation, it serves as an antiseptic.
My eczema is generalized, I finallly just started to get better with chinese medicine.
In my case only with chinese herbs. If your problem does not go away, perhaps it is worth a try. Just be very thankful that it is not all over your body. Good luck to you from someone that can definetly understand you are going through! Sad

josymsinyc48--i have the same problem on my outer ears and my dad has some on the side of his nose and behind his ears as well, and i find a remarkable way to (temporarily) get rid of the itching flakes is to soak cotton in apple cider vinegar and rub the areas. for your scalp, i don't know if you color your hair or not, but i henna it and it seriously keeps the flakes and greasiness and oiliness away for one whole month. henna is a natural hair dye made from crushed leaves and is an excellent way to control dandruff. it's also what people use to make temporary tattoos. more info here: http://www.hennaforhair.com/

also, you can use apple cider vinegar to wash down south Wink doctors actually recommend women wash their vagina with a solution of vinegar and water.

I have SD on my scalp and face. I strongly advised you to have a dr check out the skin problem you have down there before applying any medication. The skin/area is so sensitive down there. I would hate for you to use the wrong products and make it worse.

Good luck!

First, see your doctor. The doctor should either prescribe a cortisone cream or take a biopsy to determine that is isn't some other cause other than sebhorrea.

I agree. You should go to a doctor and see what you need to do to heal it. I understand the embarassment...I tend to feel it myself, but at the end of the day we are women and we need to make sure our bodies are healthy.

NEVER feel embarressed! Nothing to be embarressed about!

Honestly, I go to physical therapy for pelvic floor rehabilitaion (meaning my vaginal muscles) and have for a long while now. I usually just say "I have PT today, I'll be leaving work a bit early." But when asked more specific questions, I'm more of an open book!

I've been to so many doctors, specialists, etc...I talk way too openly sometimes about my girly parts!

I agree do not be embarrassed!!!
I am sure that Doctors see that many Vaginas during the week, they may as well be examining a foot!
I too suffered from a dry flaky vagina after switching washing powders one year and yes I had washed all my underwear, I practially burnt my poor Vagina off and it did not click it was the washing powder until after a week of wearing underwear washed in the stuff.
Then to top it off I developed thrush on top of it!!
I couldn't even wear any underwear or trousers for a month after the damage Shock er Basic intinct Anxious
The best cure was internal doses of Acidophilus, Zinc and B Complex.
Baths as often as I could, I normally put Lavender Essential Oil and a tiny amount of Tea Tree in to kill the thrush and then I think it was aquious cream I was able to tollerate with a drop of Lavender Oil mixed in ever so gently applied.
It took a good 2 months for me to heal.
