@secretgirl, whenever you use a steroid, you must wean yourself off it gradually. If you just stop, you'll likely get a reaction (flare-up).

I have dermatitis in my scalp, folds of my nose, eyes brows and ears. I find Nizarol shampoo works for me, it can also be used as a body wash. Your GP can prescribe or it can bought over the counter. I also use Sulfar 8 ointment on my scalp in between washes. You can find this in Boots or online.

As a past eczema sufferer, steroids were the worst thing for my skin as id get used to them and as soon as I stopped it got x10 worse! I started using Aveeno moisturiser and body wash and my skin problems disappeared nearly overnight. There is also the shampoo. The Childs Farm skincare range is good no harsh chemicals.

I am in desperate need of help with my scalp & skin.
I went to the doctor a while ago with a red itchy scaly hairline. He said it was dermatitis and gave me a liquid steroid to apply which works but when I stop using it, it flares back up. It has flared up quite badly twice recently and at this stage I think it is spreading down my forehead and across my cheeks. I look awful. Its itchy. Its scaly. I have had enough. Can anyone please help and advise me of what to do? I can't keep using a steroid. I'm in teats regularly over the state of me.
