CureZone Newsletter Issue 216: Seborrheic Dermatitis


Millions of people around the world are suffering from Seborrheic Dermatitis and the number is growing exponentially. Most of them have seen doctors who told them there is no known cause or cure, but there are some treatments. In this newsletter we present 100 stories from those who choose not to believe to their dermatologists.† If you read just 20% of the stories in this newsletter, it will become very obvious to you that the most common group of triggers of Seborrheic Dermatitis are foods and drinks people consume daily. Majority of people react to common allergen foods and drinks like sugar, alcohol, vinegar, milk, wheat, nuts, citric fruits, eggs, histamine rich foods etc. Another very common group of triggers are cosmetics. And as always, stress plays a huge role for many people.
So, if you want to eliminate Seborrheic Dermatitis, start with the elimination diet, and don't stop there, eliminate also all of the cosmetics you are using on the daily bases.

Stopped milk and wheat half a year ago, no more Seb Derm or Eczema by Hakan Sweden
After reading that a pregnant cow has 33 times more growth hormone I decided to quit milk and cheese. Cows in west are milked all year round and are almost always pregnant. It is also common that body builders who use growth hormones get severe seborrheic eczema. After weeks I could easily remove my seborrheic flakes from my face and they have not come back. A month has passed. I do not need to use creams in my face anymore and the eczema in the face is gone. I had problems for 7 years.

Video: How to naturally heal Dermatitis
Just over one year ago I ended a long battle with dermatitis. It had been several years of on again off again outbreaks on my sternum, face, and scalp. Doctors told me there was no cure and that my only hope was to treat it with steroid creams and an acid pills. That made things worse. I turned to yoga and natural healing and through lots of cleansing, lifestyle changes and consistent practice I healed myself 100%. Its been over a year since I had an outbreak.

Seborrheic Dermatitis under control! by Strand
Iím 32, a Caucasian male athlete, and aside from SD, I am in excellent health. One day a couple years ago, I noticed that both of my eyes started swelling up bilaterally for no apparent reason. I went to the General MD and he simply described the symptoms as Blepharitis.

MUST READ!! The CURE for Seborrheic Dermatitis by BullDancer
Okay, let me begin by saying that Iíve had Seborrheic Dermatitis for over 18 years. So I know what you are going through, and I DO have a cure (or CURES I should say) for you. I have tried everything you can possibly imagine over the years, done thousands of hours of research, tested natural sources (oils, etc.), diet, allergens, and even made my own concoctions.

I wanted to share with you all my own experiences with SD, and most importantly, give hope to those who are unsuccessfully searching for answers. Iím not saying I have a definite cure, but I myself am able to control my condition, and have successfully done so for the last 4 months.

My Journey with Seborrheic Dermatitis .... Diet does Wonders! by TaylorMade
Like many of you I have suffered with Seborrheic Dermatitis for much too long. It all started when I was in college. I began having terrible digestion problems, most likely due to poor nutrition and being dehydrated much too often.

My seb derm disappeared when I eliminated this chemical... by rt3000
Iím 38 years old, male, and have been pretty constantly affected by seb derm for the last 20 years. In the early days I would use steroid creams to clear it up, then in the last 10 years resorted to anitfungals, which took longer to get the flare-ups under control (and never completely). I was blighted in the usual places: crooks of the nose, eyebrows, chin. Itís a miserable condition but Iím happy to say that Iíve been completely free of it for the last six months.

Seborrheic Dermatitis GONE by axer89
I tried EVERYTHING, diets, liver flush, all types of vitamins, kefir, honey mask, creams, workouts, sleep, you name it. THE ONLY THING that really worked was ACUPUNCTURE by a real chinese that know his thing. He cured me completely after about 6 treatments.

seb derm 100% clear by #183132
I have been suffering with SD for 8 years which started on my scalp and then progressed to my eyebrows, behind the ears and creases of the nose. Iíve tried many things, only to be temporary relieved and even that was only up to 80%. Iíve tried numerous things from coconut oil to coffee and nystatin enemas. However, i looked into demodex mites and this is what i think was the problem for me. Demodex mites live on our skin; in the subcutaneous layer and bury themselves into our hair follicles. There are two types; demodex brevis and demodex folliculorum.

My experience and my cure for "Seborrheic Dermatitis" by Goomerang
Two years ago, all of a sudden, I begun to have some red rashes in my face, nothing really serious (size of a peanut) but noticeable for everyone. As I have a very sensitive skin, I did not worry much about it, because I thought these rashes will be over in a while.

Seb Derm Cure, My personal experience by Strand

Cured my Seborrheic Dermatitis with diet by londonUKgirl
I canít remember where I got the idea from but I started making my own milk kefir and drinking a glass every day a couple of months ago and SD completely cleared up. I have always had super oily hair and SD - since puberty. I remember being told off by my mother for scratching my scalp - have dealt with the problem for at least 15 years. Always had to wash my hair every day. Skin problems like acne etc.

I managed to get rid of Seb Derm solely by dietary changes. by Anna Maria S
I managed to get rid of Seb Derm solely by dietary changes. I suffered from this condition for 8 years and tried so many things. I went through many phases where I thought there was no hope. I finally just managed to cure it. When I started seeing real, long lasting results was when I halted all topical cures. I managed to get rid of the condition solely by dietary changes.

Seborrheic Dermatitis is curable by #154340
Seborrheic Dermatitis is curable, but you must look deeper into the body, my medical doctoR told me donít have time to look at the root cause told to see naturopathic if I wanted to look deeper I have great book recommendation that helped to read it The Autoimmune Fix: How to Stop the Hidden Autoimmune Damage That Keeps You Sick, Fat, and Tired Before It Turns Into Disease by Tom OíBryan.

How I FINALLY got relief from seborrheic dermatitis using raw honey overnight! by austinbeals57
Long story short: raw honey mixed with a ďhyaluronic acid, vitamin C, vitamin EĒ serum, left in the hair overnight, wrapped in a flour sack towel (or shower cap). Recommended once every other night for four weeks. Then as often as you want. After the four weeks (or in the midst of), consider combining hemp seed oil and Gloverís ďdandruff control topical medicineĒ and leaving in hair overnight as well. Let me know how it works for you!†

Cleared 15 Years of Seborrheic Dermatitis in 4 days.. by edinmtz
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.

Hi Guys, I wanted to share with you how I completely Cured by myself the acute case of scalp seboRrheic dermatitis that affected me.

My (good) experience on SD by haralambie
Hello all, I came across this forum in january when my SD got completely out of control and I felt that the doctors I was visiting and the creams I was using have no answer for me. Basically I was desperate. This post shows my experience dealing with SD afterwards - what I learned, how I changed. The reason I write this is that, maybe, someone can learn something. (see attached a photo: the spots with #1 are the first spots I had, then #2 and #3 when it got really bad; thatíís how I looked now, free of any pills for about 4 weeks).

Sea Salt is amazing! The CURE for Seborrheic Dermatitis by Fondues
I had a scaly itchy, rash on my arms and hairline. and began the medical mouse maze.My MD told me that rashes can tell a lot about what is going on in the body. I do completely believe it. Next stop, the dermatologist and she loaded me up with ointment creams none of them worked in fact it just made matter worse! Next time she did a biopsy they found nothing. Then back to the MD had me buy this ointment cost like 320. The pharmacist got me a coupon and I ended up paying a 100. Total waste of time and money for me. I was searching for simple, natural cure for my scaly, itchy rash.

Cured candida, seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, acne, bad breath, back pain by username12
So first and foremost i have to say that i been following the forums for a while but never felt the need to post in here before now. I feel the need to post now because if it wasnít for this forum and itís users i wouldnít be cured by now, so i am writing because i wanít to share my story and hopefully help others to be cured. So getting to the point. 4 years ago i was diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and my doctor prescribed me some medications which of course only made the situation worse. So i started to do some research and come across this forum which made draw the conclusion t

Hey guys I have finally concluded my method for getting this nasty skin disorder under control, I have seen a lot of people posting miracle cures after 1 week of doing them then coming back to say their method no longer works so Iíve done this for 4 months and everything is going great! So listen carefully 1. Diet I avoid all sugars (natural and added), caffeine (the last piece of the puzzle!), all food high in carbs (pizza, pasta, crisps, bread) also avoid alcohol! I eat a high protein diet that almost completely consists of meat and eggs, and some nuts. So I eat sausages, baco

the real cure to seborrheic dermatitis by #136457
Hello there, I am here just to help you all as i suffered from this problem for some years and i found the solution. To all those who think this is a joke or im going to talk about salt water or some rubbish like that you are wrong. I have tried all that before but as you already know it only treats the symptoms and not the cause. I have the cure to this disease FROM ITS CAUSE and im 100% serious i will just give it to you for free to help you all. Seborrheic dermatitis is 100% caused by bad digestion. Most of you most probably suffer from bloating / constipation aswell as seb derm,

Himalayan Salt for Seborrheic Dermatitis by Mclovin77
Yes!! I started using Himalayan Salt recently and it has cured my Seb Derm completely within days! I massage it directly into my face in the shower and leave on for several minutes, then wash it off with cold water when I get out. Works a treat!! I follow it up with a moisturiser only if needed from the brand Hopes Relief. Hope this helps.

My skin is totally normal again within days!! by Mclovin77
Gíday Bull Dancer! Loved the thread mate. And I totally agree with the salt method. I have had Seb Derm for 13 years. I have spent most of my career working in the ocean, and during these times I never had flare ups or flaky skin on my face or scalp. I could even drink beer often and eat almost anything with no problems! Recently I moved back into my home city in Australia and the climate is very dry. My whole face dried out and flaked for weeks as well as being horribly red! I couldnít leave the house! It was the worst I have ever had the problem. I tried oil cleansing and a bu

Just wanted to say THANK YOU! :) by SufferingEczema
Hey guys. I started a green apple and apple cider vinegar fast for three days from last Thursday. I ate two apples for each meal and drank two tablespoons of Heinz natural apple cider vinegar diluted in hot water 30 minutes before my meals. I also drank a LOT of hot water throughout the fast. I ended my fast on Saturday night with a glass full of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a glass full of squeezed lime. Drank it all (it doesnít taste bad at all, the lime overpowers any taste the olive oil has). Keep in mind that I wasnít seeing any progress with my eczema DURING the fast, so do

I cured my seborrheic dermatitis for real, 100% by tedmaster5
I had seb derm for 5 years and three of those years I didnít even know it. I started to notice a change in my skin and over all health right after I took a string of antibiotics for strep throat and severe jock itch (fungal infection). I was always tired and pale even if I worked out. My skin would get better in the summer and worse in the winter just like every one on here. I had a stressful job and traveled a lot and didnít really take care of myself. Fast forward a couple years. I got a new job and started taking care of my self and became more self aware of my skin and overall health.

I published the following on the Eczema/Excema/Dermatitis Curing Forum. Since OP is the reason for my small successes, I thought I would share it here. You all have been so generous and kind with your posts and encouragements. Molly, especially I thank you. For years I had severe upper respiratory infections; antibiotics were prescribed, but the infections returned. As a result of the antibiotics, my immune system went through havoc. Candida and other fungal infections plagued me. I developed rosacea and seborrhea. Prescriptions didnít he

For the first time in more than 6 months I have no redness, itching or burning on my scalp ascorbic acid by marytmacc
I live in a place that has chlorinated water, so strong that it makes me feel a little sick when I smell it. After moving here is when my scalp started getting red and burning. I do believe that Iíve had seborrheic dermatitis for years, but it wasnít bad enough for me to worry too much about. Iíve done a lot of research online about how to cure it or at least make it manageable. One of the things I read about was someone finding out that his dermatitis was improved when he drank orange juice (vit c). At the same time I read about removing the chlorine from water by dissolving a small amoun

within a WEEK my skin was clearing up by richardw
Try the Whole 30 cleanse. I got S.D. on my nose. It started as a tiny red spot. Spread to all of my nose, hairline, and above my eyebrows within a year. I have a sulfur face wash, cortisol and Elidel creams. They work ok, but only a temporary treatment, and dont completely clear the skin up. Hereís the thing, my wife made me do Whole30, and within a WEEK my skin was clearing up. Iím 2 weeks in right now, and the residual redness is steadily decreasing. I stopped using my face wash (when I pause the cream treatments, the facewash is pretty much the only thing that delays the peeling skin) 2

Seborrheic Dermatitis Cure by TheScientist
Hello everyone. After a long and arduous journey, I have finally found the cure to seborrheic dermatitis for me. But before that, I'll just go over some backstory. I've had the redness for over a year now. However, in the past 6 months it got really bad, to the point where the creams and such didn't help much. Now I am a man of science. I'm about to finish my bachelor of science, so I take science very seriously and don't trust alternative medicine. However, science has failed me for dermatitis and I didn't see myself using creams my whole life.

oats naturally contain 'chitinase', an enzyme that breaks down the cell wall of yeasts and fungi by dlavoie
I have a cure to report that worked quickly for me. Get yourself some oat groats. The reason is oats naturally contain íchitinaseí, an enzyme that breaks down the cell wall of yeasts and fungi. Unfortunately the steam process used to make rolled oats or oatmeal destroys this enzyme, so you canít substitute oatmeal, you do have to get oat groats. Oat groats are available from Bobís Red Mill Steel cut oats may also work if you canít find groats. Anyway, once youíve got your raw oat groats (they look like seeds), put about 1/4 cup into a blender with about 1/2 cup of water a

SEB DERM CURE = ELIMINATE ALL SUGAR FROM YOUR DIET I am a 30 year old male and Iv had really flaky red skin around my mustache area and it spread to my nose, cheeks and eyebrows - it was very severe face dandruff and every few days I would get an itchy red rash. Iv had it for about 5 years and every year it got a bit worst especially around the holiday season (when I would eat lots of sweets). After doing extensive research I learned seb derm is a fungal infection related to candida and I also did a test that confirmed high candida count in my gut. I decided to completely eliminate

I wanted to thank you one hundred times for this! I would like to explain how it worked on me (it may be a bit long); but English is not my mother tongue, so please forgive my language mistakes My skin problems started almost two years ago, with a very bad case of eczema all over my body related to an allergy to goose down. Of course I didnít know the cause of this issue at first, and I tried everything natural I could. I eventually cured it with ĒDiprosoneĒ (I live in France, itís the name of the cortisone cream a general practitioner prescribed me then) because nothing was working

After the first dead sea salt wash the redness went away. by luckycanucky
Thank you so much for your detailed advice. My son developed SD last weekend after we suspect he ate some bad oysters or possibly used a new shampoo. He has always had a slight rash on his torso since he was a baby but it was very hard to detect because it never got red or itchy. But there were always patches of slightly rough skin around his trunk. Anyway the SD developed on his forehead, behind his ears, upper back and chest. The forehead was the worst though. Red, oily looking and puffy. After the first dead sea salt wash the redness went away. Then the dead skin started to exfoliate

If you have a scalp condition, read this because it could save your life! by tifer
Iím sure a lot of you may know this already but if you donít, good. I have Seb Derm on my scalp. 6 months ago or so, I started to mess with my diet. In ONE WEEK all the redness and flaking literally disappeared. 100%. I looked at the mirror while i moved around my hair to check out my scalp and I literally went Ēhoooolllyyyy $hittttĒ scalp was white as snow. what was i eating during this week? - white rice - chicken with full fat/skin (chicken tarna) - garlic + canola oil - a variety of vegetables chopped up - deli ham - fruits & vegan protein powder. wait a minute. i

These 3 rules will make your SD retreat to the point that you think it's cured forever by mmd30
I have ĒexperienceĒ with for 30yrs. While I find your post very informing I must add a few things. You should not use the term cure, SD could be improved to the point of not being noticed at all but it will come back if you stop what you did to improve it. The most important thing is to not allow your face to be greasy, this means no creams of any kind. Thatís why water with salt works, because it cleans the oil while having anti germs action, not because itís a miracle cure. Even if you clean excess oil with hand sanitizer or green tea or water with vinegar/alcool/acetylsalicylic acid, yo

Just Donít Give Up. Be patient! by VastQuest
Hi! Yes Bulldancer is right! I tried sea salt but I found Himalayan salt to be more effective. In the beginning it seemed to work but still not a cure so I applied milk of magnesia on my face and washed it off-sometimes just on certain spots and went to sleep. This cooled my face and reduced the redness. Finally, I have been juicing wheatgrass (no gluten or wheat in it just its name) and apply it to my face for 20 minutes then wash off. This seems to be working to heal my face. Recap: Sea salt killed the yeast, Himalayan Salt was gentler on my skin, milk of magnesia cooled my face (and k

SD cure!!! by cicko
Dear folks I want to share my happiness with you. I cure my stubborn face SD with mixture of pure aloe-vera and himalayan salt. Just add table spoon of salt and little destil water to 2 dl aloe gel. Let shake it and give some time to dissolve. Wash your face with soap and apply gel on skin and give couple min massage. I did it every evening and after 7 days you should see a big difference. In a couple of weeks gone.

I have been suffering with SD in my scalp for over 2 years. I have tried everything and nothing has worked. Until this. I started doing the treatment to my scalp once a day 3 days ago.

It took me 6 years to figure out what was bothering me! I am pretty sensitive, and now can tell if Iíve eaten something where safflower oil is the last ingredient!

First off, lemme just say that as soon as i washed my skin with the salt, the itchiness was COMPLETELY gone. holy crap. I have/had this condition on my scalp near the back of my head for about 4 months. It started off as mild dandruff (as a result to my excessive hair dying) i figured it would go away in a week or so if i just put some oils on it the make the dryness go away. wrong. it just got worse, and soon formed to what i unofficially diagnosed as ĒSeborrheic dermatitisĒ.

Seborrheic Dermatitis Cured by sodium_amytal
I have been suffering from seborrheic dermatitis since I was 18 seeing as there is currently no cue for this frustrating affliction I have been trying a few different things to manage my symptoms. I use Nizoral cream which is quite affective however it is expensive and I am not convinced that I like the idea of putting such strong chemicals on my skin. I stumbled across an excellent way to manage my dermatitis quite by accident about 2 months ago and I am hopeful that this may actually have stoped the nasty organism altogether  I decided to switch from shaving cream to an oil

Seb derm- 0.25% Zinc Pyrithione actually is the cure. by crazylife4
Hi everyone! This is a follow up to the honey posting. Forgive the long trial and error, but my sonís face is totally healed now and has been for weeks. So here is what really works. I no longer believe that SD is a fatty acid metabolism problem. It is purely a fungal infection but you have to know which fungus and what specifically will kill it. If you have a diagnosis of SD you will know that there are many sites that say it is caused by Pitisporum Ovale, they are incorrect. SD is caused by Malassezia Globosa. I read a study that zinc pyrithione kills Malassezia Globosa, so I also

Hi there! Iíve been suffering from this SD skin condition for at least 5 years now. It was in the face and very annoying. Iím in the 40īs btw if anyone cares. I have been to several doctors to no avail, the message I received was that this is a cronic condition and there is basically only two ways to address it: fungicids and cortisone. Iím sure you all know the mechanics underpinning these routes. Sure, I got some temporary relief from these medication regimes, especially from a mild hydrocortisone (1% topical cream) that I have used more or less daily to push back the symptoms. The

my skin looks great! by asinderella
Hi, I just wanted to sayTHANK YOU, I had tried several costly prescriptions, none were working or working at such a slow rate, it was not apparent. I tried this and my condition has totally cleared in about a week. I only use the salts sometimes every other day just to be sure the condition is cleared (only been 2 weeks since I began it). It is simple, basic and my skin looks great. I also had already incorporated probioticís into my health regimen some years back, and only take a probiotic 3 times a week and do eat greek yogurt. I do have one other noteTumeric, mix 1 level tsp

If you're still dealing with Seb Derm by brycer9
It's time to stop doing the same things and expect a different result. Chances are, you shower daily in chlorinated water, apply cleanser and moisturizer to your face, and even try other topical skincare regimens. What if you just left your skin alone? I bet that before you had any skin problems (seb derm, acne, etc) you were washing your face less frequently then you are now. Your body is surprisingly resilient, but you are preventing it from doing it's job by nuking your skin. Trust in your body's healing ability alone and I bet within a month your skin will start to look n

cocoamidopropyl betaine triggers severe eczema by Anna Maria S
This message was posted on the eczema forum on facebook. I thought it may be important for some people suffering from eczema. ĒA few weeks ago we underwent patch testing (allergy testing) with my children. My 3 yr oldís eczema has been completely unbearable, and the testing was a challenging process. We learned she is allergic to cocoamidopropyl betaine, a very common ingredient in soap. It was in all the soap in our home! No wonder her poor skin was so awful. Her hands are still healing but eliminating the product has made a world of difference in her skin and it

after I stopped caring I started feeling great about myself. by DontCare
Hi guys, After having acne (12 years), seb derm (5 years), oily skin (donít know since when), dry skin (occasionally) I finally cured them all 100%. How? By not doing ANYTHING. And by learning not to care. At all. Seriously. While the healing of all these did not occur overnight, one thing changed immediately - I was feeling a free happy man after I stopped giving a ratís ass about such superficial problems; after I stopped looking myself in the mirror 5 times a day; after I started living without caring if I have a pimple if my face was peeling, if it felt oily or dry, or if it was hur

AMAZING RESULTS SO FAR! This is the relief that I have been in desperate search of. by gethealthyme
First of all, THANK YOU! Iíve researched the internet for years looking for solutions for this condition. Just as all have mentioned, Iíve been to numerous dermatologists, spent hundreds of dollars on prescriptions, doused myself in essential oils, and finally understand that this is an internal issue and cannot be mediated with steroids as a long term solution. Iíve suffered with SD for 15 years. Up until a year ago, only on my scalp. The rash finally spread to the visible front and sides of my forehead, my ears, all down my neck, my eyes and most recently beside my nose. The flar

I can say that I am cured. by tarheel23
Wanted to come on here to let everyone know who is suffering from seb derm that I have found my own cure. I dont know whether it will work for you but it did for me and just wanted to say it. I have had seb derm for two years and searched and searched to find the answer.Thankfully I did and it is a supplement called beta glucan. It is an immune modulator which basically means it activates your immune system to recognize bacteria, fungus,etc.I took it and it immediately got rid of all the scaling and flakey skin the next day. I ended up taking it for a month with no seb derm symptoms at all

so far the ĒCureĒ has worked for me! by alextangfastic
Iíll start by saying thank you, as so far the ĒCureĒ has worked for me. I am using dead sea salt for my face and it is the best facial ĒmedicineĒ i have ever used, and i have gone through so many such as french green clay (which is also very good). I use this whenever i flare up, and it completely curbs the red itchy patches and turns my skin into something amazing.

Yogurt application for SD by itsjustmath
This is a followup to my previous post regarding triggers that aggravate condition. Dealing with seborrheic dermatitis for about 8 years. Officially diagnosed about 2 years ago by a dermatologist. First few years were minimal and manageable but the last two years have been more aggressive and harder to control. Effected areas are scalp, lower forehead, behind ears, in and around facial hair like eyebrows and beard. Update: Discovered an inexpensive treatment to manage the flare-ups and keep skin relatively clear. Found it on this blog:

after 5 days, my redness has gone away, the peeling is almost gone by moshealth
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I used the Dead Sea Salts and it stung like hell and tasted awful but after 5 days, my redness has gone away, the peeling is almost gone, the red bumps have gone away! I AM SO RELIEVED! THANK YOU! I am working with a naturopathic doctor who thinks wheat is triggering an allergic response. I have very low stomach acid and chronic yeast infections. Weíre working on all of that now. But thank you for your solution to the symptom, this being seborrheic dermatitis. It has also helped the peeling on my scalp that used to embarrass me like crazy.

Histamine and Seborrheic Dermatitis by LFro
Iíve had seborrheic dermatitis (itchy, scabby, inflammed dandruff on my scalp, sometimes in ear canals)for about 2 years. Head & Shoulders helped a little, but Nizoral shampoo did nothing. I eat a low carb, paleo diet and this summer was on fairly high doses of oil of oregano. Neither seems to help (actually, the diet predates the dermatitis). I had a feeling it wasnít likely to be caused by fungus. Like you, when I went somewhere warm (Hawaii) and spent a few long days in the ocean, my scalp seemed to get better. However, by the end of the fortnight, the dandruff was starting to retur

Vitamin C supplements daily, combined with Fish Oil by MiamiBound
Vitamin C supplements daily, combined with Fish Oil has kept my condition under control for 7 years. If I skip the vitamin C and drink beer or carbs, it comes right back. I suffered for 10 years before stumbling on this very page 7 years ago. Try vitamin C! It works!

Iím cured. Big words right? OK, so letís say Iím in a lengthy remission by sebderm000
Update 11/15/11: Iím cured. Big words right? OK, so letís say Iím in a lengthy remission. I donít have any current outbreaks and as I read over my prior posts I think that means Iím now about 4 months without a flare up. Iíve been using the sumaxin every day. Iíve actually grown to like the smell of sulfur. Smells like, victory (over skin problems). I also reach into the toolkit outlined above every now and then. In particular I soak in a bathtub with about 2 cups of bleach added periodically. I also do the treatment of my bedding described above regularly. If this problem c

Cure = oranges by #134260
OMG, I have stumbled upon the exact same find! My SD is 100 times worse than yours. My SD became worse from using topical steroids. Iíve tried EVERYTHING. I am far beyond apple cider vinegar help On a whim, I bought a bunch of ORANGES from the store. I wasnít even thinking about my SD at the time. Within 24 hours, I noticed a profound change in my skin. I wracked my brain thinking what I did, applied, etc. It was eating ORANGES. I also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. I eat very healthfully and work out every day. I take a million supplements but, what has significantly reduced

The flakes on the nose and eye brows donít appear anymore I stumbled across another way. by PBrosam
Iíve been making ground by taking 6 capsules a day of a Yeast Cleanse which consists of Caprylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Pau DíArco and GrapeFruit Extract. I also take 3 capsules daily of Chlorella to remove heavy metal toxins. Iím putting myself on this treatment for 4 months. My seborrheic dermatitis has almost completely disappeared. My outbreaks donít come around as often and arenít as severe anymore. Iím seeing a lessening of it each time. The flakes on the nose and eye brows donít appear anymore.

Seborrhea control by kevindhca
I have had this mostly under control for 25 years. There is no cure, only management. My Grandfather had it too so I didnít have to experiment. He already knew how to keep it under control. He used tar soap. Use only tar shampoo or soap to wash with.I recommend once a day. Denorex tar works well. Be careful, thereís two different kinds of Denorex. One has a red top and contains salicylic acid like Head and Shoulders. You want the blue top one. Tar promotes the shedding of a layer of skin and is very effective at removing excess oil. This will help keep pores clear to prevent the secondar

My skin hadnít looked better in years by Hannahhope
I just wanted to say this article helped me so much. I found a product that works amazingly. Itís Dead Sea elements facial cleaning wipes. They have sea minerals, which as you have stated help to dispel the yeast. They have worked wonders for me. Also, using a natural tea tree dandruff shampoo helps, I visited a dermatologist & she said that it spreads from scalp to face, so itís important to keep the scalp clean. Massage in well!! Also probiotics have helped fit or me. My skin hadnít looked better in years. Thank you so much! I never wouldíve thought salt would help. The wipes are magic,

Seb Derm: What Worked For Me by #205610
Have had sebDerm for over 30 years and just found combination which has freed me from steroids and protopic face cream. First, I started soaking my face in dead sea salt water. Every evening at first, and now just about twice a week. Second, as soon as I am done washing face or showering, I put on CeraVe moisturizing lotion - liberally. I could not put any other kind of cream on my face because theyíd all seem to make the sebDerm condition worse but this stuff works. Lastly, I cut out drinking milk at the same time I started the salt solution soaking. Not all dairy - just drinking

The salt water is doing the trick for me!! by maximas45
BullDancer, thanks for the detailed post. The salt water is doing the trick for me!! I remember my SD cleared up each time I went swimming in the sea.. I have tried lots of natural remedies (tea tree oil, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar) and am frequently having to get my hands on a prescription only ketoconazole cream which is a pain.

Before & after pictures of my scalp Seb Derm after a vacation. by tifer
The only thing I noticed cleans up my Seb Derm is a vacation. I think the redness is 100% caused by stress. I went on vacation for 8 days and got lots of sun & swam in the ocean a lot. before: after: This is about 95% cleared if not 100%. The other side was worse. Before: after:

I know the salt treatment is working for others by gasousman
Hi. I just wanted to say thanks for that great advice concerning treatment for SD. Like you, Iíve been dealing with this crap for many years (25+). I noticed a few years ago that when I went to the beach the SD cleared up. This made me investigate the salt water cure. Well, it didnít work. I investigated further and found others were using photo therapy. My primary care physician said this isnít healthy either. The last few years Iíve just managed with Ketoconazole. However, about two months ago, for the first time, it flared up during the summer. It flared up big time. I noticed the tempe

Thank you so much by #199384
Seriously, this is the best information and advice regarding Seborrheic Dermatitis that I have found! I had a pretty bad flare up all over my face lasting for about a week and it was very slowly starting to heal but it was still red, tight, and flaky at times. I got home from work and followed your instructions for the sea salt cleanse. My skin was a bit dry after washing with the sea salt, so I put on the Aveeno eczema therapy moisturizer afterwards. My skin was a bit flaky a couple hours after, even after moisturizing, but I carefully scrubbed

My seb derm is not visible currently. by WhyLipsWhy
Iíve had visible seb derm for a while now, it varies in severity, sometimes just a few crusts above my lip, sometimes all over the moustache area / sides of the nose. This particular breakout I had was the worst Iíve ever had, itchy and burning. I decided at this point that I needed to find a cure, or a way to control / diminish this condition. I found this forum, and read for hours, a couple things caught my eye.

I just wanted to thank you so much for writing this! by prophetzer0
I fought dermatitis for 3 long years. I didnít even know thatís what I had for a long time. My face slowly got worse but I didnít connect the culprit until my face had already become disfigured and very swollen from all of the complications. I think people with this kind of dermatitis and Rosacea should seriously know that alcohol can really wreck it. My face was not distinguishable at all! (And this went on for a good year) I had tried every essential oil and medicine on the planet. I had a horrible reaction to steroid cream as

Antibiotics gave me seborrheic. by glaxony
I donít know if it will work for everybody, but iodine helped me to get rid of the fungus that started pestering me after a prescription of amoxicillin. I put it everywhere, coat my feet with it at night and put on a pair of socks, drops on my tongue, dip a sponge and insert in my vagina, and put a drop or two in enema water. There are other nutrients that have a synergistic effect with the iodine. Figuring out what your body needs will be key.

Please do this to eliminate SD! by cicko
Please read this and take it as a truthful advice. I definitely eliminated my SD Iíve had since young edge. Although I live and eat relatively healthy, my problems started with heavy dandruff, ears canals scaling, later appears on face . . . I was especially sensitive on stress, alcoholic drinks (in moderate). I posted here in the forum about my success with aloe vera gel and Himalaya salt once. This treatment was ok with a limited result . . . so I continued experimenting with sulfur 2% soap ordered online. I start washing whole scalp, ears, face (leave for 10 min before rise) once a day

Dandruff went away when i went paleo by sdrt123
I dont have SD but my regular dandruff went away when i went paleo and i heard a nutritionist on the radio claim that most dandruff problems are caused by too much sugar in the diet. seems to have been the culprit for me.

SD cleared up by #184246
I use to have SD. It cleared up when I started using more natural personal care products (shampoo, conditioner, face and body soap) without Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate. You may want to research those. Shampoos and conditioners from JASON and Aubrey Organics work for me. I also stopped using any kind of conventional styling products (like leave in conditioner) in my hair. I also use organic extra virgin coconut oil to moisturize my skin. I hope that helps if it is not something you have already tried.

Good Day BullDancer, The cure really works for my face and Iíve followed your advice to search for a detoxing diet and that works too. By the way what treatment have you apply to your scalp to cure the SD? (because my scalp is still itchy) Super Thanks ^_^

Re: MUST READ!! The by ek160709
I ordered the dead sea salt online that bull dancer recommended. I have done this routine for 7 days. I mostly just wash my face with the sea salt at night before I go to bed, and do nothing in the morning. I have been dealing with SD for about a year now after all my acne cleared up. I received anti fungal and anti inflammatory from my dermatologist and it does not really work.I have to say that the sea salt is working. I have SD on most of my face ( on the cheeks, around nose, and chin). I have one really bad spot on my chin. This has helped on pretty much all over my face except for th

Thank you BullDancer by danteee
Well thank you BullDancer for your time writing this information down and letting us know. I have Seborrheic Dermatitis on the face and on the scalp. I will start by saying that i started washing my face daily with sea salt water from the Mediterranean Sea, this is the 12th day i am using it,and i can say that it takes the oil away and leaves my face clear and not so dry. The day before yesterday a flare up started mostly to the right and the left of my nose. I canít say the 1st cure doesnít work as it helped me get the oil away.
