hi idk..thank you for responding...i have been taking iron for a while but not sure if its helping. did u get these plugs in eyebrows? bc most people w seb derm have scaling, flakes and i have this but i dont hear about the follicles plugging up. i read somewhere on here that it could be keratosis pilaris? i think the gycolic cleanser is worth a try bc i think it exfoliates the pores that the rice grain things stick out of. i am so scared i am going to lose all my eyebrows.
Sorry for the late reply. I don't come here often. lol
Yes I got the plugs, and they would be attached to the eyebrow hair. Everytime I tried to "extract" them I would lose eyebrow hairs. Even when I just briefly touched my eyebrows, I would lose a whole bunch. My seb derm was very oily, big yellow flakes with the plugs in all of my eyebrow hairs. From my reading, it is usually due to some type of deficiency. I would look at what you are personally deficient in. I have read success stories from people who took D3, or B2, and all these other supplements that never worked for my seb derm. It was not until I tried iron that I noticed the flakes and plugs disappearing. Unfortunately, I still lose my eyebrows. This all started when I took Spironolactone (Aldactone). I was only on it for 1 month, and seb derm + eyebrow loss happened, and has not stopepd despite being off of the drug. Just today, I was thinking maybe I developed some type of deficiency. But how is that possible when I take a multivitamin? I don't know... But I figured it was worth googling. Well Well Well...........turns out Aldactone depletes the body of folic acid, and iron!!! So I'm going to go pick up some folic acid. But, I will use FOLATE. Folic acid is not utilized by the body by most people. I also learned folic acid is the synthethic version and MANY drugs deplete folate in the body. You should think hard about the drugs you have taken and see if you could be deficienty in any of those. I've been on antibiotics, pain killers, and spirionlactone. So I'm definately going to extra supplement (b12, folate, iron, biotin, and zinc).
Glycolic acid helped, but it was not the solution. Please look deeper. It is not a superficial problem.
