#3412737 Not Able To Use Quote Feature

I can't paste text either.  I notified the moderators about 2 weeks ago, and they're looking into it.  The problem started about 8 weeks ago with an automatic windows update on my PC.

I have useful information that I would like to post as an attachment but I'm over the limit.  Please re-set my screen name allowance or tell me how can we make this happen?

#3377467 Sometimes Fungus, Not Bacteria

Posted by Tom Busby on 23 August 2013 - 08:33 PM

Hi steigerhome 123, I agree that it's an all over skin condition.  Nice write-up too, especially this line, "Though not romantically involved, the fungus that can cause dandruff/seborrhea really loves sebum." 


Malassezia is lipid dependent, which means it has to have oil to have any metobolic activity


Lotrimin Ultra also works on malassezia, and its OTC.  Last year the FDA issued a Guidance for clinical trials involving this drug and malassezia, and I've tried it with good results. 

#3376173 An Effective Seb Derm Scalp Treatment

Posted by Tom Busby on 19 August 2013 - 02:29 PM

An aesthetic and effective lightweight hair gel can be made with 100 ml of Aloe Vera, 5 ml of Hegor 150 shampoo, and 2 grams of Xylitol.


I actually used 0.07 grams of Climbazole powder dissolved in 1 ml of Isopropanol and added 5 ml of my custom-blend Cetaphil lotion, instead of Hegor 150, but my mix is equivalent to 1 part in 20 dilution of Hegor 150.  Both mixes are just barely over the EU guidelines for a full body leave-on product, so they are safe as a scalp product.  


My suggestion for a Hegor 150 mix is because most people don’t home compound, and I would like to hear back from anyone who tries this 1 to 20 ration of Hegor 150 as to its aesthetics. 


The mix takes about 20 minutes to dry, and then my hair looks and feels normal.  My “normal” was no hair gel and no hair styling products, so I’m pleased this mix is very lightweight and leaves my hair normal and maybe even a little better.  Hurray, I have an effective leave-on product for my scalp -- I didn’t like using medicated lotion on my scalp because it looked like 1960’s Elvis-hair.
