I am 21 years old and I've had SD for quite a few years now. I used to treat it with a ketoconazole shampoo on my scalp and steroid creams on my face. I stopped using steroid creams almost a year ago and I don't plan on going back to using them.
What I would like some help with is mainly a diet for sd, about 7 months ago I started to cut out all wheat and dairy products and I only consumed them every now and then. I had a 2 month period I believe it was where I didn't consume any at all but unfortunately I can't remember how my SD responded to it. I wish I had kept some sort of log I am going to exclude all wheat/dairy products again and see what happens. Although before I started making changes to my diet I consumed alot of wheat/dairy daily and occasionally alcohol and there were times when my face/scalp were totally clear, this is also what confuses me.
What are your thoughts about digestion being linked to SD? do you have any personal experiences you can share? What is ok to consume and what is not? fruit? nuts? rice?
Reading about it on the net some say that eggs are bad for them, some say they're not. Some say potatoes are bad etc and the list goes on and on. Although everyone seem to agree that what and dairy are big troublemakers.
My problem areas are my nose, nostrils, ears and scalp and when my SD gets worse I also get it in my moustache area. I also have a lot of pimples on my scalp, this is a problem I have not been able to get rid of, even when my SD fades I get alot of pimples on my scalp. I am afraid that this together with SD is what has caused me to lose so much hair, I can say that I have a lot less hair than the average 21 year old
Currently I am only using the born to be mild cleanser from Dermadoctor which contains 2% pyrithione zinc for my face and ketoconazole shampoo for my scalp. I might give the ACV method a try, I haven't tried that one yet.
