I was diagnosed just recently with seborrheic dermatitis, though I've been dealing with it ever since I was a kid. I'm 18 right now. To be honest it has not yet made me feel embarrassed or anything, so I'm not really stressed about it, it turns annoying once in a while only. The thing is I'm sporting long hair. After researching on my condition and actually going to the dermatologist, I'm aware I should wash my hair daily and use anti-dandruff shampoos (since the seborrheic dermatitis is chronic and can't be cured, only treated). At the same time, I was also recommended in the past to skip washes (hair), like wash one day, skip the next, wash again, and so on. This is because I have extremely oily roots, so the doctor said that washing too much stimulates additional sebum production, he said the sebum was not reaching my full length (hence the dry hair). I've already been skipping washes for two weeks, and my hair does feel better. But now the seborrheic dermatitis is really bad when I don't wash, I'm having abundance in scale and flakes, as well as rashes. Any woman out there (since you probably understand me better when talking about the hair) who faces the same issue? Any tips from you? Of course, by all means guys who also have a long hair and share the issue please comment.
