    I have SD for several years now. Currently, sea salt seems to be the most consistent treatment for me.

    I've had SD for as long as I can remember around my nose and scalp.  Recently I've had major problems with my ears too.  So embarrassing.  I'm interested in non-pharmaceutical solutions.

    Curing Facial Seborrhea Dermatitis

    Follow the candida diet faithfully (this is your first line of defense and will get the ball rolling for repairing your body internally)

    Purchase a good quality internal anti-fungal such as turmeric or caprylic acid (this is also a part of your first line of defense)

    Take the tablets once or twice every day depending upon your body's response to detoxification.

    Purchase a raw, unfiltered honey and a good quality SEA salt (the honey is for washing your face and masking every other day for a couple of hours and then rinsing)

    The sea salt is applied in a diluted manner (1 tsp sea salt to 2Tb filtered or spring water) over the entire face once in the morning and once just before bed and left on all day/night if possible.

    It's okay to lightly rinse off the sea salt mixture after a few minutes if you find it stings too much; however the longer you can leave the diluted sea salt on your face the better and more quickly you will see results.

    Do not use any other face wash or mask at this time.

    You will see clearer skin in 1-3 days but continue the diet and external treatments for at least 4-6 months. It typically takes this long (sometimes longer depending upon how bad the seborrhea dermatitis is) in order to see longer lasting results. Seborrheic dermatitis is caused by an over abundance of Candida albicans and  unless treated over the long term, will likely continue to thrive and cause your seborrheic dermatitis to linger. Permanent results are more likely guaranteed if you change your diet to one that reduces most sugars and eliminates preservatives entirely.

    You will lose weight on this diet. Lots of weight. If you find yourself losing too much, add high fat oils (coconut, butter, allowable nuts) and increase your protein consumption.

    After about six months, you can start introducing 'non candida diet' foods one at a time to see how your skin reacts.

    As a side note, the external treatment for facial skin can also be applied elsewhere on the body. Simply experiment a bit with the honey and sea salt ratios until you find one that works. Just be patient and don't give up.

    Started struggling with seb derm a few years ago. Tried everything and nothing has worked as well as Biom8 thus far.

    I'm a 46 yo Caucasian female. I've had SD of the scalp for approx 10-11 years. Like everyone, I've tried SO many things to cure or even just help it. Many of the things that have helped others have done nothing for me.

    I don't have flare-ups -- I have constant SD.  I switch time between a very arid, and a very humid climate, and that has not seemed to make any difference either.

    My default way of handling it is to put something–I've switched around from coconut oil, to plain yoghurt, to conditioner mixed with oregano oil, and currently am using a combo of lemon juice/veg glycerin/oregano oil)–on my scalp, leave it 2-8 hours under a plastic cap, and gently exfoliate the scales off w a comb.

    Tho I've experimented with dietary stuff before (and I tend to have a much healthier diet anyway than most accounts I read), three weeks ago I started what is basically a Whole30 diet, plus leaving out eggs and nightshades, and very low sugar (no sugars of any kind, no dried fruits, and just 0-1 pieces of fresh fruit per day). At the same time, I've started spraying my scalp with a mixture of veg glycerin, red cedar essential oil, red cedar tincture, and lemon juice. I still have to exfoliate my scalp as described above, about every 3-4 days.

    This is the strictest diet I've undertaken, and I've also started sleeping more (I used to work nights) so I'm really hopeful some change and improvement will take place. I am already a height-weight proportionate, very fit person (I exercise extensively every week) I also have absolutely no other health issues – no asthma/hay fever, no other skin issues (the rest of my skin is extremely healthy), no allergies, no digestive problems, and I get sick with even a cold less than once every 2 years.

    So why my scalp SD is so crazy-making and intractable has always been a mystery to me.

    Michael, thanks SO MUCH

    I have had SD on my face for almost 8 years now. It began around my nose and I had a full blown flare up that spread to my whole face, including eyebrow. I've not had a flare up like that since and have contained it to the areas surrounding my nose. I've seen doctors but have changed doctors due to my insurance and was only now (through an allergist) told that I probably have SD. Every doctor since basically gave me things to try (keto cream, tacrolimus, hyrdo cortisone, metro cream). Everything but the metro cream helps but did not cure it. I am here to try to learn about SD holistically: causes, symptoms, cure, and prevention.
