after a round of accutane, all i had left was the redness from deem seb. Although it was much better after accutune the redness was still there and from time to time it would flair up. Around 2 months ago a gave SebClair Cream a go. It is the best thing ever, i currently have ZERO redness and the best thing its that it its a non steroidal cream. I suggest this to everyone out there.

 
hi byeacne123 i think some users used it at page 14 like italianboy but didnt mention success with it and i also read from other forums negative reviews so, i guess its good that it worked for someone and had success with it .

A short update for me : after being totally gluten free, second time for 20 days ( first time was 30 days with some success) i concluded that gluten doesnt affect so much my SD as i had a flare up after being short term gluten free.

I am using raw organic ACV with success for my sculp and now only use it once per week and i shampoo my hair with a natural shampoo without SLS. I Have 0% of flakes now for the first time  :rolleyes: 

i have on my mind to schedule a coffee free and milk-dairy free diet to see the impact of these on my S.D. 

take care people

Well i guess my SD is only mild, as all i really get is redness and sometimes little red dots which annoy the shit out of me. This has worked to remove these. My complexion is once again even. I did a test and didn't use SebClair for 5 days and i noticed the redness and little red spots were coming back, definitely using this long term!

 

How severe is your SD? glad to hear you're finding something that works for you!

I would describe my SD as mild to moderate. It occurs when malassezia yeast grows up and that is every 14 days. Then i apply ketoconazole cream (fungoral 2%) which is my life savior ( i discovered it alone, none of the dermatologists i visited told me about it ) . I apply the cream once every night for 4-7 days and even in day 1 i see remarkable results. 

I said these cause we all have some sort of cream that works for us , i will give SebClair a try after i finish testing the "raw honey treatment" which is quite interesting !! 

I will share results as soon as possible .

EDIT : another possible solution for S.D -non steroid cream that worked for some people is "Nystatin"

and another cream that may treat is and it is non steroid is "Promiseb"

Just wanted to share that the only thing that works quickly for me is ciclopirox, an antifungal. I tried many things (ACV, hydrocortisone, ketoconazole, clotrimazole, baking in the sun, etc....). A few years ago during a terrible, full facial SD flare up, I was desperate and starting looking through the medicine cabinet. My boyfriend has psoriasis and a bunch of prescriptions, so I started looking them all up. One was Loprox (ciclopirox) and it turned out that is was sometimes prescribed for SD. It has been the only thing that stops it overnight. The problem is, I ran out, and I couldn't get a dermatologist to prescribe it to me. (By the time I saw the derm in Canada, I had no flare up so he didn't really think I had SD.... he was relying on my diagnosis... maybe next time I'll take pics!). I was able to find some on eBay, but it's 0.1% instead of 0.77% like Loprox and it seems to work very slowly. I just ordered the 0.77% finally and waiting in the mail. Please note: I am in no way condoning buying Rx drugs on the internet! Just telling you my story. SD is very frustrating. 

 

I also wanted to say that in terms of triggers, sometimes it can be something irritating that causes mine to flare. I also have acne, and if I go a little too hard with Retin A or BHA, I can get a flare up. It seems like my skin will move from having acne flare-up to having SD flare-up. Some kind of microbial warfare going on on my face :/  A few days ago, I started using low strength azelaic acid (8%) with low strength tretinoin (0.025%), and now I have a minor flare up. I think the combo was just irritating enough to cause problems. It could be something else... one can never know exactly. On a side note, azelaic acid has been proposed as a possible treatment for SD since it's also anti-fungal.

hi thx for the update,Dr Cynthia Bailey suggests it too on her site to cool down a flare up. i guess its a good cream .

I use ketoconazole but i am open to that kind of suggestions and will give it a try at some point.

i started the raw honey treatment but my sculp got very flaky so after 12-13 days i stoped. Maybe the honey was not good enough cause it was crystallized . I dont know , i have on mind to check dermdoctor born to be mild , restoraderm wash and moisturizer , no milk-coffee for a month and granpas thylox sulfur soap .. ill tell you guys if anything of these works..

i have been reading in different forums like this one and i am reading this topic from the start . I am currently at page 35 .Its quite boring but we gotta try all possible safe treatements.

Some people use far too many products and supplements , without caution .... You can damage your liver or other organs if you take a lot of supplements over the safe limit for a long time so be careful people !!!!! Remember that we are trying things that worked for some people on the internet and that is without supervision of a specialist on the field.

I guess dermatologists cant help us :think:

Happy Easter

Hi all , at page 44 of this thread user Avalonhaze mentioned that he used dermazinc cream   (pyrithione zinc 2%) at a regular basis to control his seborrheic dermatis and so did user Simeon which used zinc pyrithione spray . Avalonhaze used it for more than 10 years as he sais and he confirmed it when i contacted him today . 

0 side effects and many many good reviews from SD sufferers at amazon . Whoever hasnt found something that worked for him till now should give it a shot.

Take care
