PLEASE HELP Seborrheic dermatitis HIV POSITIVE
I am a 35 yr. old male, HIV positive for about 12 years.  CD4 stays in range at around 350-450,  Viral load stays undetectible.  I have a very severe case of Seborrheic dermatitis on my face, ie  cheeks, forehead, chin.  I currently have a topical prescription for Ketoconazole Cream 2%.  I apply it daily, as well as wash my face with nizerol shampoo (over the counter), and apply hydrocortozone cream.  NOTHING SO FAR RELIEVES the burning, severe flaking, intense redness of infected area. I dont have healthcare and cannot afford it.  I go to a hiv clinic, but treatment is very limited.  I am on antiviral meds, Atripla once daily to cotrol the hiv.  My question is there any pill form treatment that may work for me? Or is there any other treatment to help me.  I am very embarressed to go out in public because everyone always ask whats wrong with your face.  PLEASE HELP ME , DESPERATE HERE !  Please contact me via email if you would ***@****

Nizerol shampoo, why on earth would you use that on your face? That's a dandruff shampoo.
