    Default Does Seb Derm trap oil underneath crust?

    I'm pretty sure I developed this in high school. I used to have very oily skin and would get a lot of acne. it was bad, but at least my skin didn't burn or scale up. My hair was very thick and also on the oily side. I never really minded the oily quality though.

    When I was 18 I noticed that I had begun having regular face irritation, followed by what I thought was just dry skin. It progressed, as well as my hair began looking wilted and unhealthy simultaneously. My skin took on a scaly quality where it felt hard and like there was a pretty thick crust on my face.

    I learned to manage it somewhat, I would use a little head and shoulders and not try to irritate my face...I was very afraid of irritation and thought I must have just mistreated my skin for it to take on such problems.

    Only recently have I thrown caution to the wind, years later, and begun liberally using head and shoulders on my face and scalp. I used a lot of it the past week. The weird thing is...while there was a bit of irritation and redness...my skin didn't dry out. Its more oily than its been in a long time. My hair seems rejuvenated too, like it has more strength.

    What I'm asking is...have I peeled off a layer of seb derm and released my natural skin oils which have been trapped underneath?

    I think the head and shoulders helped for scalp and face derm also. like it removed dead skin off face. think its the zinc pyrithoine in it. for that reason i bought born to be mild by dermadoctor which has hte zinc p in it and doesnt cause the irration to face as head and shoulders did.
