    Question Acne And Sebhoroeic Dermatitis

    Hi does anybody else out there suffer from these two problems not one or the other.
    I just find it really hard to find a product that is suitable for both conditions.
    Acne doesnt take kindly to the greasy creams and lotions that are often the treatment for the dermatitis and the dermatitis doesnt take kindly to the harsh drying products that are normally used to fight acne.
    Its a catch 21 situation.
    For those of you who dont know what sebhoroeic dermatitis is i will explain,Its a condition where your skin becomes flaky in the areas where oil production is high so basically the over production of oil causes the skin to flake, this is because of a yeast that lives on your skin and feeds off the over production of oil.
    Also i find that it makes your skin extremley sore and sensitive at times,so acne type medications can be a no no at certain times.
    Does anybody know of a routine or certain medication that can be used to treat the two problems at once,instead of having to apply one cream for the acne and one cream for the dermatitis as this is very tedious and dam right expensive lol.

    Can you use jojoba oil to balance the skins oil production?
