Hi, from 10 years ago I've been suffering of seborrheic dermatitis in face and head. Any experiences and help about it?
I've read it can be Candida related, do you know?
Thanks

It will be food related, so keep a food diary and find out what food is making you ill.

Eat right for your type.

I think it is more related to fatty acid imbalance rather than yeast. A higher percentage of omega 3 to omega 6 is desired in order to keep inflammation at bay.

If its what I think it is, if someone has it and sleeps on your pillow, you can contract it, also.  Little red spots, that hurts, and needs to be treated with medicated shampoo, can lead to baldness, are we talking about the same thing here?

no, I'm not vegan and my BT don't change
I think a diet without sugar, dairy and low in carbs is good for my dermatitis, but now I'm not sure about nothing

Seborrheic dermatitis doesn't affect your overall health, but it can be uncomfortable and cause embarrassment when it develops on visible parts of your body like around the eyebrows, nose, and edge of ears. It isn't contagious, and it's not a sign of poor personal hygiene. Seborrheic dermatitis tends to recur, but you may be able to manage flare-ups by recognizing its signs and symptoms and by using a combination of self-care steps and over-the-counter (nonprescription) medications... it is a sebaceous gland disorder most likely genetic, not a contagion... It is commonly aggravated by changes in humidity, changes in seasons, trauma (eg, scratching), or emotional stress - Shampoos or lotions containing selenium, ketoconazole, or corticosteroids may be prescribed for severe cases 8)

THANK YOU! I have five kids with this condition it is genetic and not contagious as stated above- over active glands along with the hyperproduction of skin cells causes build up. We have found that using pine tar shampoo bars from mosoap.com helps to control it along with using a nit comb on the scalp to clean/scrap the scalp. (what we call it affectionately (craddle crud/cap)). Also wearing short hair and spending suffiecient time with your hat off in the sun helps immensely. It can be due to a EFA imbalance just like and over abbundance of earwax and/or food/shemical/enviromental allergies.

Mine is mild-I use the shampoo bar twice a week and clean everyother day with baking soda water and apple cider vinegar rinse. It keeps my head a happy if it happen sto itch I add peppermint tea to the rinse for iitching. I am literally allergic to most all shampoos and soaps, cocobetaine.
Good luck

BTW ketoconazole-is an antifungal which I have taken for systemic canidida- one time treatment for yeast infection.

First of all I would like to completely thank Major for the definition of this type of dermatitis.
Mine started in 2007 due to severe emotional stress.  

My mother was dying and I had been in daily phone contact with her for years.  My job was overwhelmingly busy having to deal with crowds of people.  I felt alone with this to say the least.
It started during work I would get a persistent itch on my lower left leg just above the ankle.
I kept scratching and the areas on my leg kept getting larger and some really red.

I was able to keep it bearable with cortisone cream.  I can't tell you how many tubes of it I went through.  

Then when I decided to leave my job because I just couldn't handle the abuse to my health on a mental, emotional, and of course physical level .It all of a sudden became inflamed and covered areas that included the calf.  Red itchy bumps appeared.  

I went to the emergency room once and they took blood tests and had me on antibiotics for about 4 hours.  the antibiotics basically didn't help.

I then went to a place where they wrapped my leg with something called viscopaste which is a gauzelike bandage that has been treated with zinc.  That was a relief and did reduce the swelling.
They also gave me a prescription for a huge jar of anti-itch cream that I used constantly.  Because the more I itched the more it bled.  

This went on for about six months and then I stopped because I couldn't handle the charge for each visit.

Presently I found a massage therapist who has perfected something called "Medssage" (Medical Massage) where he uses a hi tech combination of ultra sound and electronic muscle stimulation which gets the blood flow to my leg going.  This has reduced the edema tremendously and the redness is slowly going away.  

So, Jaff77, I can understand that you've been dealing with this condition for a long time.  Please research all areas.  Look up on the internet how other people have dealt with this condition.

I did use Calamine Lotion anti-itch lotion which is a temporary fix because it tends to dry up those red bumps and also has the anti-itch factor in it.

Much good luck and let us know how you are doing.

Joy
