Can certain foods make seborrheic dermatitis worse?....
 
Hi again, I have seborrheic dermatitis and I was wondering if certain foods can make it worse or what will cause the flare-ups. Are there any over the counter products that work well, it is mainly my hairline and sides of nose areas. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Stacey,

I know wheat and dairy are common triggers for eczema (aka dermatitis)... and seb derm is a form of dermatitis... so it would make sense. If you try eliminating a food from your diet, be sure to only eliminate one at a time. If you Google "elimination diet" you'll find info on how to narrow down and determine what food is giving you trouble.
