Sulfur Soap Helping Seborrheic Dermatitis



Although my blog is devoted chiefly to oily skin and acne, I also deal with seborrheic dermatitis and I like to provide periodic updates regarding my progress on that front as well, in case my experience can help someone else suffering from seb derm.

One month ago I started washing the seb derm areas of my face with a sulfur soap called Coral KAVI. It contains salicylic acid and sulfur. While I have used salicylic acid products in the past with no success, I had never used a sulfur soap until this experiment.

My main symptoms of seb derm are flaking, redness, and occasionally pustules, with flaking being the most annoyingly unmanageable symptom. So far, Coral KAVI soap has made a significant difference in the amount of flakes on my face. My seb derm typically shows up in my beard, and whenever my beard used to grow out, I could rub flakes out of it for literally 5 minutes straight. It would just keep snowing down (sorry, I know that's gross lol). When I rub my beard now, next to nothing comes out. I mean seriously next to nothing. I used to get hundreds if not thousands of little flakes, and now I get... maybe ten? I don't know. It's seriously negligible.

I wash my face with the soap twice a day in lukewarm water and then apply my CeraVe moisturizer.

I'm just hoping that the results stick. I've heard of certain treatments improving people's seb derm only to gradually stop working after a few months of use. But I'm happy at the moment.
