1: Ditch all products/shampoos with Sulfates. Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate etc are known skin irritants and are used in labs as such. Real nasty ingredients which will do your skin no favours especially if you have SD.
2: Get chlorine filters fitted to your water supply and only wash with filtered water.
3 Wash scalp with baking soda (not baking powder). Must be pure bicarbonate of soda. A little will do, wet hair and apply baking soda, be careful not to leave on too long, find out the length of time suitable for you. I wet hair, then use 1/2- 3/4 of a teaspoon to wash my scalp, I leave it on for 2-5 mins before rinsing off. Clears dandruff like nothing I've ever used.
4 Wash face with only filtered water and weak baking soda solution. Baking soda kills yeasts. Tread carefully though, and don't burn your skin with it. Use it as a face wash. I use 1/2 teaspoon in about 3/4 pint of water. Gently rinse face with that solution and leave on for no longer than 1-2 minutes. It is important that you find the dosage that will suit your skin so be careful.
5 If you are male stay clean shaven as much as possible and use only the gentlest shaving products that you can find on your face.
6 Avoid all bread products, bread, cakes, biscuits etc. Also try to avoid grains and cereals as much as possible. Eat a low carb diet and low GCI foods.
7 Eat plenty or raw veg, the more the better, frozen will do as well but the more raw the better, broccoli, spinach, kale, carrots, leafy greens etc.
8 Avoid sugars and fatty processed foods.
9 Drink bottled or filtered water only. Fizzy drinks and caffeine flared my SD badly.
10 Change your bedclothes and pillowcases regularly.
11 If you must use cream on your face avoid steroids at all costs. I had best results with Zinc Oxide (Diaper rash) facemasks which can be kept on for as long as desired.
12 Supplements I take are; Flaxseed oil, Zinc,1 Antihistamine per day, B complex in the form of Brewers Yeast (but any B complex pills will do) Selenium tablet that contains vit A and E as well.
13 If you smoke quit.
14 And finally try to get some sun, exercise and stay positive.
This worked for me. My skin is almost crystal clear. I hope it is of some help to someone. Remember if you decide to follow the steps I've outlined here give it time. Yeasts are hard to kill but you can get there. I'll be happy to answer any questions. Good Luck!!!!
Thank you for this. I'm going to try this now and hopefully get results like you did. Do you think the baking soda played an important part in your seb derm clearing?
