21 Year Old with Sb for 8 Years
Hi Ted I have read many of your posts(on earth clinic), you seem to have a great knowledge of SD and it's many factors.
I thought SD was mostly a canadid issue for everyone , but your theories state there could be as many as 6 causes of it.That's very interesting, I never heard anyone say that before, I think it could be true.
I'm a SD sufferer Ted, and I'm really reaching out for some help, I have tried so many things wasted so many dollars, on this horrid condition.I haven't gotten very far.
I will give some backround info on me to help you find the root of my sd;I'm a 21 yr old male, been suffering from SD for 8 years. I have it on my scalp, over just about my entire forehead, butterfly of sd around my nose, under my eyes, bridge of nose ect..It has really destroyed my life.
The SD has a distinct line where it ends and where my normal skin is, in most areas. It is persistent, throughout all these years it has never actually cleared, just varied in inflammation levels.I know that long hours in the summer sun really helps. Cold weather/wind tears my face apart.I tried all those shampoos the first years of my condition( on my face/scalp ) they helped a bit but not anymore I don't use them. Nizoral seems to help a bit.I tried acv it seemed to help a bit but not much, I forget why I stopped using it but it must be that reason.
Scaling and flaking used to be a big issue, I used to be able to peel like a inch of skin off my face... Now I don't flake very much it seems I have a lot of white heads or little balls of flakes now? It's not a huge issue, but redness is my main problem just a persistent red sunburn appearance...
Wheat, sugar, and fried foods seems to make it worse, so I avoid them. I have been taking many supplements over the years with varying success. Including D, gse, zinc, fish oil, green tea, acidiophous, b complex, coconut oil, anti canidid ect..
I tried virgin coconut oil as I heard it healed some people, but it just seemed to make my skin worse. I tried virgin olive oil and salt combo (5 days) that I read cured someone, not sure of my conclusion on it, but I think it just made my skin worse or didn't help much.
I think this email is getting a bit long, if you have more specific questions I would be glad to answer.
I really appreciate your help ted, I'm on my last straw, after this its off the bridge
