A Complete List of Potential Solutions for Seborrheic Dermatitis

First of all, I endorse NONE of these necessarily. I just want to round up every solution that is proposed all over this crazy Inernet, as well as from books, doctors, Sephora clerks, my little Mexican abuelita-in-law, etc. I will keep adding when I hear of new things. So add your own in the comments or email me! I plan on writing an extensive post on EACH of these, so soon this will be a page of links where you can see my report on each solution.

Apple Cider Vinegar, taken orally
Apple Cider Vinegar, applied to skin/scalp
Pyrithione Zinc- in soap or shampoo

Salicylic Acid – discussed here for scalp

  1. I’ been suffering from seborrheic dermatitis for about 15 years now, and I tried, over the years, different specific products for the skin care hoping to see some results, but none of them worked for me. A few months ago my wife told me to try one of the beauty products that she uses every day. I don’t know why she thought it could be good for me, but out of desperation, I decided to give it a shot, and it worked!!. It’s been many years since I can see my skin clean on my scalp and my face around my lips, chin, sideburns and behind my years. The product is from L’oreal, and it’s called Age Perfect, Glow Renewal, Facial Oil. It seems to bee a mix of essential oils and some other stuff. Whatever it is it worked on me like magic, almost 100 %. I just pour about 4 drops of this lotion in the palm of my hand and apply it on my affected areas with one finger, and that’s it. I saw results overnight. It worked for me, and I hope it could also work for you!


  2. I developed it on my face mostly around my mouth a couple months ago. I researched and finally tried honey
    It cleared up until we went into covid 19 lockdown and I could not get any good honey.
