I have been getting Seb Derm on and off for the last 2 years. All the creams the doctor gave me Hydrocortisone, Clotrimazole etc never worked they only eased the symptoms for a few days for them to return. Usually i only get small red patches at the side of my nose, on my chin and behind my ears. However every few months i do get a really bad outbreak which comes out all over my face in large red, itchy, flaky patches. I have done a bit of research on Seb Derm and i have concluded that its condition i will have to live with for the rest of my life and i accept that. Something triggers Seb Derm to outbreak and its extremely hard to pin point the source. Various people i know have different stories for example one person got an allergy test done and found out they are allergic to wheat so they cut it out and have no Seb Derm as a result, another person found out they were allergic to 80% of cows milk which triggered the Seb Derm. I have tried cutting out wheat and diary but my Seb Derm remains and so i continue to search for the trigger. Digging a little deeper i came across 2 people who found their triggers. The first person made a connection with a candida infection in his gut that killed the membrane lining which triggered his Seb Derm. He was given Nystatin by his doctor and he has since had no outbreaks of Seb Derm. The second person made a connection with sunlight which gives our body Vitamin D3, they realised anytime they were abroad they were cured of Seb Derm and it only returned when they arrived back to gloomy weather in the UK. Along with Magnesium tablets (magnesium helps the body absorb Vitamin D3, some Seb Derm patients have found that a magnesium deficiency in their body triggers it as the viatamin d3 takes longer to absorb) and Vitamin D3 5000ui strength they had no longer any issues with Seb Derm.
I have got some Mycostatin Oral Suspension that i have just started taking 4 times daily for 7 days. This contains Nystatin.
I have also got some Magnesium and Vitamin D3 5000ui tablets that i am taking daily aswell. I have just started this treatment today so i will keep yous updated on my results. Im hoping for positive results so maybe other Seb Derm sufferers can try these aswell.
