  1. Sorry for the lack of response. I have purposely let the seb derm go back into remission so I could try new things, especially since I wanted to go off the saw palmetto due to side effects and fear of damaging r liver/pancreas. What helps to improve: Pure (Japanese exfoliatior, apply on skin then just rub away.) Dermadoctor BTBM Cleanser CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser (mix this with small amount of BTBM as it has no SLS.) Baking soda plus water paste (leave on 10 min, then wash off. Flakes disa
  2. Hi, I have oily yet flaky skin on my chin and jawline. My cheeks, forehead, and nose are COMPLETELY CLEAR. It's only my chin and jawline that is affected. My whole face gets oily but my chin/jaw are always flaky, always breaking out, hyperpigmented, and it seems the area is dehydrated. You can see that there's oil on the skin but when I go jog or something, my chin/jawline pores just can't sweat out anything. It's really dehydrated to me and there's no protective skin barrier. Worst of all, i
  3. It's tough and I feel for ya. It's definitely a bigger picture and your skin represents what's going on inside the body. At least you know what potentially and most likely is causing your problem. I recently tested for any potential thyroid problem but mine came back normal so I'm up in the air onto why this it's suddenly coming back for me. I think Lotrimin Ultra was a placebo. I would not touch or alter anything with your skin. Just wait for it to heal. Hopefully you have more news on any new
  4. I'm sorry to hear about your thyroid cancer. Wow, so this is definitely a puzzle but I think it's coming together. Rheumatoid factor usually pops up because of inflammation and it's basically your body's own immune system attacking itself and making these antibodies to attack your own cells. I think in your case, somehow, it's attacking your skin cells and perhaps other cells as well. Now for the thyroid cancer ,I can't see the connection between RF and thyroid cancer but I do know the thyroi
  5. Sounds more and more like an internal issue. You know, I read about a study saying there's this bacteria that clumps up and gathers in the pore leading to what looks like a keratin/sebum plug. If I find it I will post it. I don't think it was demodex. Demodex Releases a bacteria that triggers an inflammatory response from the skin. Serb derm and rosacea are both related. Even though it appears dry, if your skin is oily then it can cause the seb derm flakes to sprout up. To me, you have combinat
  6. Wicky, have you tried a gluten-free diet? And baking soda (leave on for 3 mins) paste? Gluten is in everything. Perhaps you might have non-celiac gluten allergies or some sort of auto-immune disease where your body is attacking its own skin cells and causes excess shedding/flaking, sort of like psoriasis. I just know it has to be internal. For seborrheic dermatitis sufferers, I suggest trying Lotrimin Ultra. It helps tremendously. Unlike the azoles which are downright scams, the main ingre

  8. When you remove these plugs, what's under it? The pore I mean. Any blood? If they resurface, it's probably an internal issue meaning gut, hormonal, or dehydration. What has the derm say? It sounds to me your skin may simply be dehydrated or something's bothering the skin barrier. Unfortunately, This can go both ways - external like mites or internal like hormone imbalance. FYI, if your skin is dehydrated, oils do not work. You should hydrate your skin internally by drinking lots of water or
  9. SkinZinc spray. I stopped that too because I couldn't bear the burning and I tested it for about a week. No luck. Neither with the Salicyclic acid creams. I'm allergic to SLS so there's no point to using Crotamiton. To my surprise, the remaining flakes/plugs or whatever disappeared after using Selsun Blue on my chin despite the irritating ALS. Still some here and there but no where near as bad as before. I think weather seems to help some too, because where I live, the low humidity inhibits grow
  10. Forgot this thread. Crotamiton 10% was a step in the right direction as it seemed to have gotten rid of the flakes (or it could've been the saw palmetto) but it actually irritated my skin very much due to the SLS. I have pimples because of it near my chin. So I discontinued use. The Salcura DermaSpray did not seem to do anything. It made my skin oilier, which actually is good for mites/dandruff. So I also discontinued that. There was no indication that this would treat Democidosis or Sebor
  11. Do you have a gut issue like GERD? You are taking quite a handful of supplements, have you seen any remarkable improvement with those? I took supplements just like that and ended up breaking out even worse. When you take supplements, your body is like “WTF do I do with this?” It helps some, but not a whole lot compared to regular whole foods that the body can recognize and easily digest. It’s difficult to self-diagnose GI problems. I forgot to mention that I am taking ACV and Aloe Vera to cal
  12. For those of you who's Seborrheic Dermatitis is not resolved by conventional means (antibiotics, antifungal creams, supplements, steroids, strict anti-candida diet, changing toothpaste, washing pillows, and so on), you may want to look into Democidosis. Democidosis can mimic seborrhea and rosacea. Basically, it's mites that live on our skin and it's the abundance of these Demodex mites that are causing the sebum plugs, acne, and flakes. It may be common if you live in a dusty household or you do
  13. It's been about 2 months since using Finacea and there's no doubt it's made my skin much softer, with little to no breakouts, and has lightened my hyperpigmentation that I've had for years. However, I think it makes the "outline" of my marks more visible. From far away or when there is no lighting, you can see a dark outline around my mouth (it looks like a goatee) but when there is light and you look up close, there is no brown mark. This leads me to believe I have a skin tone issue here si
