    Hard Sebum plugs in skin - cure

    For over a decade I have been suffering with acne on my back. Mostly in the form of thick plugs of hard sebum on my back. I spent years doing research trying to cure this. I found the usual avenues - more omega 3, no trans fats, dairy and wheat allergies etc but really had quite limited success. Then finally I stumbled upon fungal folliculitus. This is basically when yeast overgrows and blocks your pores. I treated my skin daily with Nizoral antifungal shampoo - leaving it on the skin for 15 minutes before washing it off. Within a week my skin had improved drastically (also my scalp is flake free and no longer dry), a huge reduction in sebum plugs, very few spots and a completely different soft skin texture.

    Doctors were unable to diagnose this in the past and simply prescribed antibiotics which would have made the problem worse! (as bacteria control the yeast population on the skin)

    I really hope this information helps someone.
