100% Clarity



Just a quick udate since my struggle with seborrheic dermatitis had me down. I am glad the say that my skin is (and has been for the past few weeks) 100% clear of blemishes and visible seb derm. I had to back down my Bactrim dosage to 3 days on and 4 days off every week, and in addition to using Cortaid and Lotrimin as needed, I have successfully been able to get my skin clear of the red itchy patches and keep them away for weeks at a time. As long as I am taking any antibiotic at all, I know I will have to deal with managing the seb derm, but honestly- its waaaaaaay easier to deal with than having breakouts. A little powder and its invisible, unlike acne which is 3 dimensional. Thankfully, I've found a regimen that works both to keep my skin 100% blemish-free and keeps the seb derm flare-ups extremely mild and usually about 2 weeks apart. Considering they consist of 2-3 slightly dry, mildly red patches that disappear in 24 hours- its really not something I'm even worried about anymore. I'm just enjoying life without makeup, hiding, and embarrassment. The sun is shining and so am I!
