Both my seborrheic dermatitis and Acne had their ups and downs.
I’m twenty now. Between the ages of 14 and 18 I had nasty Acne like many teens. It started on my face, slowly migrating to my upper back. Nowadays every two or three days I get one medium zit on my face or upper back, and I belive the situation is getting better with age.
The Sabborrhea started at 16 on my sculp. At about 18 it gradually migrated to my face. Nowadays I don’t have any on my scalp. Constant anti-dandruff shampoo maintenance has kept it off. At the time it was on my scalp it was REALLY severe, like with that guys face (hard to watch, found with google):
On my face it causes white pealing flakes like those around that guy’s moustache, which appear mostly around my nose. Pealing these prematurely can even cause bleeding, and they’re itchy as hell. When shit hits the fan, I use the Nizoral Shampoo, and that takes care of them in 1-3 days. Some 7-50 later it happens again.
I dunno about diet, but I absolutely LOVE dairy products, and giving up on them will kill me
I figure it may be somewhat hereditary, for my father also suffer from it, though in his case it started much later in life. My kung-fu teacher was has a degree in acupuncture from china told me a day ago that spicy foods can make it worse, and that he knows of some chinese herbal recipe for Sabborrhea and hopes to give it to me next week, though he doesn’t know if it’ll work since it’s not his field of expertise.
