Bad Case of Seborrheic Dermatitis on Face, Scalp and Neck

Posted by Denise (Milwaukee, Wi Usa) on 08/01/2010

Ted, wondering if you would have any input? I had a bad case of Seborrheic Dermatitis on my face, scalp, and neck last year. It went away after juice fasting for 3 weeks and eating a low carb diet. Well, this year after pushing my luck and having too much alcohol, sugar, and carbs for 3 weeks my face itched. Them I got conjunctivitis in both eyes. Immediately after that seb derm started around my eyes and then spread to my entire face and neck. Red, scaly, dry, flaking, it weeped when it started. Any ideas?

One of the easiest remedy I can come up with for Seborrheic Dermatitis is Magnesium chloride solution, which is roughly 60-70% magnesium and 30% to 40% water. I had many cases of this and is relieved in nearly everyone of them (can't recall cases that was not successful) where you use this solution and apply to the skin area throughout the day. A stronger solution is to prepare a 30% magnesium chloride solution with 70% DMSO (100% DMSO solution) and is then applied to the skin, however this is ONLY used if the first remedy isn't working well. For me I was in a hurry, so the second solution kind of worked faster then the first one, only by about 20 to 30 minutes. The solution is to be continually applied throughout the day for an average of 3 days. It is also important the magnesium chloride solution is taken internally at a dose that won't cause loose stools, which is on the average is taken between 10-20 drops before meals 30 minutes or more three times a day. There was one case but it wasn't exactly a seborrheic dermatitis, but did have skin inflammation due to an unknown bacteria and viruses, which entered the eyes to cause conjunctivitis and resulting in the Parkinson's disease after it entered the optic nerve (he has a previous Parkinson's disease that was cured before using the previous posing on the cure of Parkinson' s disease). So I had to treat his skin condition for a more desperate solution using a DMSO with tannic acid, which I don't like because they tend to cause light brown scars that look like age spots after they go away. The tannic acid will quickly neutralize any bacteria/virus should a person getting the unknown skin condition and it causes possible blindness and neurological condtions, when it enters the optic nerve, whereby going to the brain, resulting in Parkinson's disease that came back. The area around the eyes, but not in the eyes was actually prepared, using tannic acid and DMSO, such as 50 cc of water, 20 cc of DMSO, plus 1. 8 teaspoon of tannic acid to get rid of those in the eyelid and facial areas because it required a radical treatment. As for the eye drops I used roughly 10%-20% magnesium chloride solution to kill off the conjunctivitis. It has to be remembered that I have tried nearly all pharmaceutical agents for conjunctivitis and none work as best as the Magnesium chloride. In case you don't have the time to find what's the cure for Parkinson's disease that reversed it in 24 hours, it was the lysine, threonine, with vitamin C supplements, but especially the lysine and threonine hourly doses for 19 hours for about 2 days, there after, it is taken as a maintenance dose for about twice a day. Each dose for lysine is 1000 mg each, and for threonine is 1000 mg each. The reason why I mentioned this is this remedy of lysine and threonine may helped the seborrheic dermatitis indirectly due to pathogens as being the cause. The single most important substance to avoid is the fructose, both cancer and viruses, and skin problems seem to take advantage of this more then any other food, which is found in sweet fruits, corn syrup, and recently I have found fructose added in Sprite cola drinks and perhaps many more if we just read the ingredients.

Please read this study. I have had good success with this regimin of vitamin e, selenium, lecithin, diet rich in red meat, sam-e and n-acetyl cysteine. Blood levels of vitamin E, polyunsaturated fatty acids of phospholipids, lipoperoxides and glutathione peroxidase in patients affected with seborrheic dermatitis.

Plasma levels of vitamin E (Vit E) and polyunsaturated fatty acids of phospholipids (PUFA-PL) as well as erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activity are significantly lower (P less than 0. 001) in patients with seborrheic dermatitis (SD). Both HIV seropositive or HIV sero-negative, than in control subjects. No differences are found between HIV sero-positive and sero-negative individuals with SD. The deficiency of PUFA-PL (mainly C20: 3 n-6, C20: 4 n-6 and C22: 6 n-3) which is accompanied by a significant increase of saturated palmitic and stearic acids (P less than 0. 001), does not appear to be associated with an active lipoperoxidative process in the plasma. The significant blood deficiency of Vit E, GSH-Px, and particularly of PUFA-PL, may play a pathogenetic role in seborrheic dermatitis.

dear ted, ive been suffuring with seb-derm for about 35 years. Kept in control with tar shampoo, til I got lymphoma cancer. Was on steriods for treament and chemo. It went away, but after treament it came back with a vengence. Nothing helps. Its hot to the touch and burns. It itches all the time. Very dry. Have tryed everything. One time the straight vinegar for 1 hour then wash off helped for awhile then it started to burn in 2 spots. Did this everyday, but when it burned, I stopped cause I didnt think it was working. my hair, (very little left) is like straw. Doctors meds and steriods help very little and they are bad. Im very tired and week and emotionlly exhaused from trying to find something to help. The pain is horrible and I dont want to live. Please help.
