Hi - I was just diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis (SD) and am trying the oil of oregano (“OO”) today. The reason I have no hesitation in trying the OO is because I know it has worked for me many times in the past for other ailments such as sore throats.
For example, I have used OO to get rid of sore throats and felt the burning sensation mentioned above. The burning sensation is from the carvrocol in the OO literally “blowing up” the bad microbes causing the ailment. Once my sore throat was gone and I applied the OO, there was no more burning sensation! This simply means that the OO accomplished killing the bad microbes causing the ailment.
I will try to let you all know if the OO works for my SD also.
To answer questions posed above: Whole Foods has their own version of OO. Buy it (comes with dropper) and put a single drop on finger and spread in affected skin. Be sure to not get the OO in your eyes! I was careful in applying to my face for the SD and do not want to find out what happens if OO got in an eye!
