I have the same story as everyone. Seen every doctor, they all tell us to use Ketazole, which stops working quick, if it ever does. Steroids work a bit but we all know they have a bunch of repercussions.
I tried tea tree oil for a while but even that stopped working.
I had bad Seborrheic Dermatitis
. My face was covered in dandruff and if I scratched it, it would sometimes bleed underneath the flakes. I had it in my brows, between them, on my forehead, and on and around the nose, and my neck. We're talking a very VERY intense case.
I was doing research about anti-inflammatory cryotherapy for muscles, and stumbled upon an article on OIL OF OREGANO. I know a lot of people are against oils on the face but this is more of an essence not an oil.
OIL OF OREGANO has anti-fungal properties that are stronger than most medications (from personal experience now), and it has anti-inflammatory traits too. I was at my whits end one day, my face was covered in flakes and redness, so I went to Whole Foods and bought it. It's about $20 for a fairly small vile. It burned like a SOB. I would not recommend doing it right out of the shower. It smelled like a greek salad, it made my face red, and stung. The next morning I noticed that my redness was at about 60% of what it was the day before. I tried the oil again, by the next day I was at 75% gone, and by the third day I was at 95% perfect skin. It also cleared up my acne.
It's been three months now, and I've had not a single flare up. I kept a calendar for a doctor, and I would only have 2-3 dermatitis free days a month at max. I haven't had any redness, flakes, or anything for 3 months. The oil I use also has olive oil in it, so my skin hasn't dried out.
For a moisturizer, I was told to try Tidal, which may only be sold at Sephora. It's $65 but you also don't use much. It made my skin extremely soft and was undoing the damage dermatitis did very quickly.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND- I'm sensitive to everything. Even sunblock gives me the worst most painful flare ups. I have tried everything, and even vinegar, baking soda, lemon, and every chemical you can buy. This is the ONLY thing that has ever worked in 15 years. PLEASE- I hate this disease. It's not cancer but it's your face and it's the most frustrating thing in the world because no doctors seem to care. I was in pain, and I'd scratch my face all hours of the day. Please just try OIL OF OREGANO. I want this to be a non-issue for all of us. Good luck!
