  1. 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 unti
  2. Hey everyone, So I am going to go on a rant here. I've been analyzing others posts for a couple of years and have decided to make one which describes my personal battle with acne/perioral dermatitis. I have been dealing with this problem for a long time and I am determined to find a cure or treat myself since I cannot let this take over my life and let it affect my confidence. I know I will be able to cure myself soon and help others. I will save the emotional trauma I went through due to th
  3. I am posting this New Topic because I have not seen much content on sebhorrheic dermatitis, though this skin concern can look identical to acne. If your skin problem is not acne but happens to be an "acne impostor", the Regimen may not help you at all! If I had understood sooner that not all pimples are acne, I would have saved myself a lot of trouble/anxiety. When I was in my early 20's, the Regimen worked wonders on my skin. I had moderate acne, and I give the Regimen and the acne.org p
  4. Hey everyone, I'm a long time reader and first time poster here at acne.org. I've suffered with acne and more recently (2-3 years) with Seborrheic Dermatitis on my face, sides of my nose and around my eyebrows. Name is David, I'm 24 and from Dublin, Ireland. Since I was about 15 I've suffered with acne, I went through some bad chest, neck and back acne between the ages of around 17-22, I went through everything except Roaccutane. Over the last year or two it seems to be diminishing, my back
  5. Why Do Some People Have Oilier Skin than Others?

    Oily skin (seborrhea), is a condition that results when the skin over-produces skin oil (sebum), leaving the skin looking shiny and feeling greasy. Sebum is produced all over the body inside the skin in glands called sebaceous glands, that are attached to the sides of skin pores. The face, scalp, and upper torso are most likely to experience excess sebum production.1-3 Even though too much sebum is unwanted, it serves several purposes for the skin: It protects the...
  6. Hi everybody, This is my first post here, though I have used this website as an information resource as well as purchased products several times. I recently started using topical Nizoral and have seen unprecedented and rapid success in treating my persistent and severe acne, so I thought I would share my history of treatment and describe some preliminary results. I began breaking out when I was around 12. At first, it was small red bumps on my back and pustules on my face. As I entered hig
  7. Sulfur for Acne

    Topical application of sulfur has been used to treat various skin conditions since the time of Hippocrates (5thcentury BC). Since the 1960s, science has validated its effectiveness in treating acne, particularly when combined with other ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide. Sulfur is used to treat a variety of conditions, including acne, seborrheic dermatitis (scaly patches and red skin, usually on the scalp), rosacea, scabies, and fungal infections. It treats acne by shedding the outer layer of...
  8. Hey everyone, So, after 5 years dealing with acne, a lot of antibiotics, accutane and a bunch of other topical treatments, my acne is now under control through a diet that works for me. Although, I have no regime at all, I find that my face gets a lot better with the caveman regimen (which is doing nothing at all, the most I do is let water touch my face in the shower). So, now I have a problem, because of all the medications and topical treatments, now I have a seborrheic dermatitis on my f
  9. Hello guys, here is another one in your company. I've got my acne and Seborrhoeic dermatitis. Acne - 6 years, SD - 2 years. I used isotretinoin, it helped for 6 months. But I was happy, my skin was fully clear and I dont regret that I used it. I don't know what do to now, cause I used everything! Only antibiotics help me now, but only while I'm using it. The next day after using - new pimples. So sad. You can see my photo, it looks ok maybe, but without beard it is awful. If I shave -
  10. Summarized version of my success: No masturbation No daily hot showers; short cool showers after 2 days minimumNo face washing or "skincare regimen" of any kind; the only thing that hits my skin is cool water when I shower (and of course washing my hands with soap, but that's it for my skin) My story with detail: Looking back, I realize I started having acne when I started masturbating. Over the next five years, I had many doctors give me all sorts of creams, pills, and so on - it all faile
  11. So when I first went to this dermatologist, I was prescribed to use an oral pill for acne, and Aczone. 3 months later, my face has gotten better after (mostly) regular usage of the oral pill and extremely infrequent usage of Aczone, as well as going dairy-free. I'm apprehensive if I should use Differin, becuase everything I've read so far says NOT to use on skin with eczema... Additionally, my skin has acne that's more on the light to mild side. My face isn't freaking out, and I don't have pus
  12. Hi there, So after suffering through acne for about 5 years, I've finally managed to get it under control through constant prowling on this website under the holisitic section and doing outside research. This website has been especially helpful because of the sheer amount of anecdotal evidence shared and for that I'd just like to say thank you. Now for my problem, Recently I've developed what seems to be a rash on my face, and it comes and goes as it pleases but it seems to come and stay mor
  13. Hello all. I haven't been here in years... I was a member in my early twenties when acne was my primary trouble (I'm 33 now). I've been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis. It's mainly my scalp and eyebrows, but my face is also flaky and I get it a little bit in my eyelashes sometimes. Anywho... My dermatologist prescribed the 2% ketoconazole shampoo every other day for two weeks, betamethazone valerate foam twice a day, and desonide lotion for my eyebrows twice a day. The instructions wer
  14. I started getting mild-severe acnes last December, and I went on Doxycycline and retin-a 0.05%. Then about 3-4 months ago, I started getting greasy, scaly skin with yellowish "crystals" (weeping) on my cheeks (see pictures). After washing it off during shower, my skin would feel really tight and dry, and it itched quite a bit as well. Then I started applying Fucidin cream 3 times a day. It responded quite well and most of it cleared away after about 1-2 weeks. However, I noticed that it would co
  15. First a little background information · Girl, currently 19 years old · Started getting acne around 14 years old · Dry, sensitive skin + large pores (the most ironic combination) · Few big ones on my forehead or near my mouth / chin, never my cheek, often pretty deep with no head + ooze for a really long time · Doctor prescribed me clindoxyl(Benzoylperoxid/Clindamycin), did not do much but irritate my skin · Dermatologist who put me on lymeceline pills (two years ago), helped with the infl
  16. Ok, this is going to be a long post so bear with me, please. I am desperate for help. I am 27 years old and back in school so I have no insurance and can't see a dermatologist. In August, I decided to switch from Rodan & Fields Unblemished to TULA. I was wanting to get away from putting all of the harsh chemicals on my skin. I had extremely mild acne growing up and there really wasn't a need for me to be using the product. When I started using TULA I developed these small bumps around my
  17. Hey everyone: I am 25 and I've had moderate to severe breakouts since I was 14. I've tried everything (tazorac, differin, bp, ocm, aha, acv) and visited multiple dermatologists with no success. I'm wondering if I even have acne or if its some other skin condition that is causing my breakouts. My skin is very flaky and dry, yet if I use any type of moisturizer my skin gets extremely shiny and oily. My skin is clearly damaged from all the different treatments over the years, plus my hab
  18. For the past few years (20 yo now) I have had little white/yellow small flakes on my skin, generally on the sides of my nose, my eyebrows sometimes, my cheeks, my chin, and "mustache area". None of these areas are really red, just a little, and there is no pain at all from these areas. Sometimes I feel like the skin is dry when I open my mouth wide. I have never gotten any comments on it and my parents say they didn't even know about the flakes being there until I told them to look close. My d
  19. Hey Folks, I am on my 3rd month of 20mg claravis (21M Weight 54kg) and am starting to clear up nicely. I am on a lower dose because my acne ranges between mild and moderate and I also suffer from seborrheic dermatitis and my derm doesn't want it to flare horribly and make it worse. My derm only wants me to do a 6month course of 20mg a day. Do you guys think this will be enough? I have calculated it and my total cumulative dose will be about 67kg per kg. I know the recommended dose is 120mg per
  20. I posted this on another thread, but I figured its more prescription related so im moving it here. Hello all, I am a 29 year old male. I have Seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp as well as my face, mostly in the hair baring areas. I started getting it on the sides of my nose about 6-7 months ago and I also started getting some pretty bad acne around my nose. Not really multiple pimples, but big pustules and cysts that would take up 3-5 pores at a time. I have tr
  21. Hello, A month ago I had angular cheilitis and was desperate for a cure. I used a topical steroid for it but my skin reacted horribly. There is redness around my mouth as well as itchiness. I've come to conclusion that it's either Perioral Dermatitis or Seborrheic dermatitis. I also got a rash on the top of my chest. It has also spread to my neck where you can find red bumps and white pustules. The worst part is the dryness. It gets super dry and cracked!!!! Sometimes it even gets ashy. The itc
  22. Hi guys! So I have a very thick layer of dead skin buildup on my face. I suspect it’s Seb Derm but I don’t have any of the other symptoms: Redness, oiliness, flakes. My dead skin layer is more of a sticky layer. I have tried the caveman regime and the dead skin was so thick and gross, I eventually gave up and rubbed it off. I can see the dead skin the most when my face is wet or once I get out the shower, it’s a white layer over my face that can be rubbed off with the slightest touch. No matt
  23. For the past 1-2 years I've been getting these little hardened plugs of sebum/keratin? in my pores. They look like little rice grains. Every time they come out, whether by force or not, a little scarred hole is left behind. They often come out with a small piece of hair attached, including eyebrow hair! <------ This makes me real sad They may be blackheads, I don't know. But I'm pretty sure I have seborrheic dermatitis based on these symptoms + oily, flaky skin. These holes are real
  24. I remember when I was so full of life. I remember when I was beautiful, when women were attracted to me, when I had many friends, when I exercised, when I played in a band, when I knew who I was. Ever since joining the military my life has gone to shit. I have been in for almost two years now, and my skin issues have turned me into a creature of the shadows. And it is not so much as acne that bogs me down, it is something much worse. I have some sort of seborrheic dermatitis, or some conditio
