Thank you for your post Scottish! The humidity in Oslo I also believe to be higher. Your explanation of what in the humid air it is that helps against Seb derm was interesting. I have tried both not smoking in Oslo and smoking if I am in Sweden and the results strenghtens my marijuana theory.
When it comes to the tingling I just know itīs something I feel in the first face of the blooming on my face. As soon as I feel that itch beside my nose Iīm just so used to be facing an inflammation followed by flaking. Of course this increase my anxiety. I will remember everything you said.
Now I will tell about the salve. I made it on 7th jan. While I cooked it, which was not too difficult, my face was very soar and in itīs worst face. I applied straight on my bloomed skin but it didnīt help. I will just say that all of the salves Iīve tried, except for one I got from a chinese acupuncturer, have made my blooming worse when applied. This was what I experienced even this time.
I was very disappointed and the next days I didnīt use the salve. I used a bit to much beeswax in my salve so it became too hard. I think that the strong layer that the salve made on my soar skin might have prevented it from breathing and healing properly. I also know that the makers of the recepie say that the only place the salve is not recommended to be used is in an open wound, which I would say my face looked like at that moment.
Anyways. When the flaking was gone, on the 10th, I applied the salve. My skin responded very well to it, and no blooming was caused. My skin was like a babyīs ass. This is normal though, usually for 2-4 days then it returns. On the 14th I felt the itch beside my nose. I thought okay here it comes but it was worth a try. I used my Ketokonazol schampoo (which I think is very good) on my scalp and cleaned my face. I applied the canna-coconut salve on the itching spot and it disappeared. This was the first time this happened ever I think. The blooming never came. The area got a bit red, just 1-2 cm2, but didnīt hurt. Today the spot is 2-3 cm2 but I still feel nothing and almost one week have passed.
I canīt say itīs working yet. I will keep you updated as often as something happens. My faith in the salve is very good so far anyway.
Chris7 - I would say that after half a joint every day for a week it stays away for at least five days without me smoking.
Xtashanx - I know how your frustration feels. If you try it Iīm looking forward to hear how it turned out. Normally, if my seb derm is blooming and I smoke, the flaking part sets in faster and normally the condition is better the next day or day after that, and invisible after 5 days.
