Prescription NSAIDs are an important treatment for the symptoms of many debilitating conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and other rheumatological and painful conditions. OTC NSAIDs are used to temporarily reduce fever and to treat minor aches and pains such as headaches, toothaches, backaches, muscular aches, tendonitis, strains, sprains and menstrual cramps. Common OTC NSAIDs include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). In addition, some combination medicines that relieve various symptoms, such as multi-symptom cold products, contain NSAIDs.
It is worth noting that the bulk of the cream is actually a combination of skin conditioning agents. Among them are Butyrospermum Parkii (aka Shea Butter) and Cera Alba (aka beeswax). Now, these ingredients are fine, however, they do contain fatty acids that feed the Malassezia yeast. And we know that seborrheic dermatitis is intrinsically linked to this yeast. Anti-fungal agents appear to control seb derm by killing this yeast. That’s the theory right now, backed by hundreds/thousands of peer-reviewed experiments. And it’s why using a moisturizer that contains these fatty acids can make your seb derm worse – you’re literally feeding the condition .
