I felt that I had to join this board to relay what worked for me in order to offer some hope of a cure to others out there who are dealing with the nightmare that is Seb Derm. Quick history: I'm a 31 year old male, extremely fit( yoga, surf, run, etc 5+ times a week), I eat healthy ( minus beer and chocolate), and I've been dealing with Seb Derm on my EYELIDS for the past SIX months. Absolute nightmare. But worry not, for I found a cure thanks to God and his extraordinary Natural remedies he has gifted to mankind.
First, and while I did indeed discover a tangible miracle cure in a bottle, arm yourself with a quiver of beneficial life changes if you truly want to lose your crippling Seb Derm.
Get allergy tested. You'll discover what may possibly be aggravating your condition. I found out that I'm extremely allergic to Dust Mites in addition to almonds and a laundry list of other things.
Eat healthier. Lose the salt. Cook strictly with organic coconut oil. Ditch the sugar. Look up Mercolas list of beneficial veggies
Consider Astaxanthin supplementing, It's one of natures most powerful anti inflammatories/ antioxidants.
Castor Oil!! The miracle cure if you will, for me at least. It's fatty acid composition profile is one of the most unique Nature has to offer, and has been referred to since ancient times as " Palma Christie"( Palm of Christ) for its healing capabilities. Topically, I tried Oregano Oil, Coconut oil, turmeric oil, prescription steroids, OTC steroids, honey, etc: Nothing worked! Then I tried topical Castor Oil and internal Astaxanthin and the Seb Derm literally disappeared in a couple days. Give these two a try! Be sure to buy organic hexane free Castor oil.
Conclusion: come to terms with the fact that your Dermatologist doesn't know Jack about your Seb Derm and nature is your only cure. Try out a quiver of natural remedies and you'll likely find one that works for you.
After a six month quest of trying everything, I personally recommend Castor Oil and Astaxanthin dosing. It worked for me and I had a horrific case of Seb Derm in possibly the worst physical location possible: the eyelids. Good Luck!
