What treatments for seborrheic dermatitis have worked for you?
As a longtime sufferer of seb derm on my scalp and face, I'm finally committed to fighting this condition head-on, instead of relying passively on hydrocortisone. So I'm curious how other people are tackling this, with particular interest in naturalist and OTC remedies. My current plan of attack:
Cetaphil Skin Cleanser, on face - Nightly Shower
Selsun Blue, on face and scalp - Nightly Shower, alternating with H&S
Head & Shoulders, on scalp - Nightly Shower, alternating with Selsun
Hydrocortisone 1% Cream or Ointment, for flareups.
Clotrimazole 1% Cream - 1 application - Nightly
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) - two tablespoons with a cup of water - Twice Daily
Actually, I started putting Selsun Blue on my face last week. And I only began Clotrimazole two days ago. But already, my face is great! No flakes or redness of any kind. Almost all of the flaky skin and dried sebum are gone.
I'm hoping to try ACV as a natural maintenance remedy, first by consuming it for a week and then using it on my face. For the drink, I often hear the two tablespoons recipe. However, to apply on the face, how much should I dilute the ACV? I may also take fish oil supplements for Omega-3. It is purported to help with seb derm.
Lastly, people seem to talk a lot about Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother, the benefits coming from organic apples and not being pasteurized. Has anyone had experience with this?
So, what has worked for you?
