Everyone is different so what works for one may not for another, the smartest thing to do is to keep a food diary, and as soon as you eat something write it down or you will not recall what caused what!
Easy method to see if you allergic to something if you are your heart rate goes up. It is good to note resting heart rate, and then 10 to 15 minutes after you eat something see where your heart rate is jot it down. I figured out I was allergic to peanut butter using this method. Of course the elimination diet is the most accurate method to figure out what your allergic to, over that of scratch test, I read that but I wonder about it . My allergist laughs about the blood test for allergies, so everyone has their position. Gluten is the one thing that all doctors I've see suggest eliminating my doc said it take at least 8 months of being off gluten to see real results
Here is what I researched change the terrain so yeast can't grow and what is happening on the outside may be happening on the inside. This changes the terrain, alkalizing 3 times a day ...very simple I use something that my Nautropathic doctor loves, he seems to love all the things he is selling! HA! Bio Terrain Alkaline Powder. The other option, is just to do it yourself, this tastes better, 2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice and 1/4 tsp baking soda in glass let it fizzle then add water and drink it down do this 3 times a day. Then make a thin paste of water for 10 day and also make baking soda and water paste put on the area for a few days and see what happens if doesn't work then go to the next program for me it was, sea salt on the area after bath, for week if it works great doesn't go to the next thing.
I was told about LUCKY Tiger Ointment eliminating S.D found it on Amazon bought it , used it on seborrheic dermatitis , and it did not work for me. It is like ben-gay I could still rub it on my back and shoulder after my work out so no money wasted.
Called my dermatologist gave me Rx for
Ciclopirox Olamine Cream for S.B. and that cured my issue. Cost only 8.00 of course with insurance still that is cheap. I prefer natural route but sometime you just gotta go the MD route

Seborrheic Dermatitis is curable, but you must look deeper into the body, my medical docto told me don't have time to look at the root cause told to see naturopathic if I wanted to look deeper
I have great book recommendation that helped to read it The Autoimmune Fix: How to Stop the Hidden Autoimmune Damage That Keeps You Sick, Fat, and Tired Before It Turns Into Disease by Tom O'Bryan.
MAYO Study found that first diagnosis by 88% of doctor MISDIAGNOSIS patients. If business had a 88% failure rate it would be out of business.
My dermatologist was batting zero gave different kinds of crap that failed over and over again. I went right over to my ND and he figured it out in four five minutes . I had Candida Overgrowth because I was on antibiotics for one month, I suspected that . This is logical conclusion Now here is what I was told if it on your skin, scalp or hair anywhere on your body it reflects what is going inside and the body is showing you by it being on the skin
I stopped all dairy, Sugar and grains no gluten, I'm a vegetarian so no meat
Did the a candida cleanse alkalized that is pretty important and took Lauricidin a very potent coconut pellets from Amazon.
I must agree with you about the zero carbs and/or low carbs get rid of the sleepiness, the brain fog, the tiredness, up and down high and lows and the bloated or edgy feeling your body has when on mega carbs. It was stunning at how the carbs effect you and once you cut back you realize you feel so much better
I went on low carbs I had the keto flu, within three days, but I drank Sea Salt one or two teaspoon in warm water, magnesium, and potassium you will come out to the other side a stronger person,healthier and more clear person There is fast you can do on Sea Salt , kale, onion and garlic boiled in water and just drink the liquid for two days this kills candida big time. and it gets the body ready to go low carb it is a healthier start
Medicine escapes the scrutiny it deserves there have been no studies to show; how many people die from the tests, how many from the antibiotics, how many from misdiagnosis, how many from medication errors and how many from surgery errors, and how many times does a doctor fails to take any actions and does nothing and the patient dies, If there was ever a vast study of the failure and death rate would be shocking

My skin was a bit mixed. I started out with dry flaky skin when I reached 16. Which could of been thyroid related but there was far more than this. My pituitary gland and hypothalamus was partly destroyed as shown in my iris by a black mark through both. I was not aware of this at the time, not for about 10 years later. It actually occurred when I was 12 when I had a very severe headache, sensitive to light.
I used some Aloe gel on my face which caused scaly scabs to form and the skin became extremely dry and tight. This was really severe and looked and felt terrible and was very uncomfortable. The skin would not heal. I went to TCM herbalist shortly after this which helped improve things. It never got rid of the dryness which did vary depending upon the foods I ate. At the time I was not aware of leaky gut, although I did make a connection with the foods I ate affecting things.
Have you ever checked your stomach acid levels? I read many books on Iridology, GAPS, Increased Intestinal Permeability Syndrome and others. I did a stomach acid test, which did show very low levels. http://livingfoods.co.uk/the-acid-test-by-philip-weeks/
Someone on this forum asked whether HCl fixed hypochlorhydria. I thought about this and noticed that after I took HCl I burped repeatedly whenever I took HCl capsules. The burning which is meant to indicate too much HCl only happened very briefly and then stopped. More HCl resulted in increased burping and took around 12 capsules to reach a burning which quickly diminished after burping. I worked out the cause of this and why people have hypochlorhydria. I started spitting out saliva while I was digesting protein and my stomach acid increased but if I swallowed saliva, I burped and stomach acid diminished. I then came across urease, an enzyme used by some bacteria to produce ammonia which is an alkaline. The ammonia neutralizes stomach acidity. Saliva is a source of Urea which is used by Urease enzyme to produce ammonia to stop stomach acid which is a threat to a biofilm. Stomach acid can damage/degrade a biofilm. Although they do adapt and can get around this.
Be aware that hair loss can be caused by poor protein digestion ie lack of amino acids. Chances are that you have hypochlorhydria and your protein digestion is very poor. Your stomach is almost certainly compromised which leaves it open to infection as the stomach is intelligent and attempts to keep it free of infection by parasites and bacteria. Unfortunately it can fail and be compromised.
Swallowing an acid such as lemon juice or vinegar can test this. Prepare some sodium bicarb in warm water. Then prepare some lemon juice or vinegar in about 100ml of warm water. Wash around the mouth to mix saliva and then swallow it. Then quickly wash the sodium bicarb around the mouth and then spit out. DO NOT swallow the sodium bicarb or it will neutralise the acid, it is only meant to eliminate any acid on your teeth. Swallow some saliva and see if you burp.
These infections have to be urease positive to survive in the stomach. Helicobacter Pylori is urease positive and there are other bacteria too. All of these bacteria cause leaky gut. It is caused by their biofilm which replaces sections of stomach mucosa.
These bacteria also compromise methylation processes because methylation begins in the stomach. Taking some MSM can be helpful as it supplies much needed methyl groups. It can also help reduce inflammation. It's helpful to take it with ascorbic acid (vitamin C).

MilkAllergy, thanks for sharing your experience! I know that this was posted many years ago, but if you happen to see this, would you mind giving an update on how your dermatitis is doing? Are you still able to keep it under control through diet, and have you figured out anything more about what foods trigger the condition? I would also be very interested in hearing from any other Internet People who have similar success stories to share.
Now I'll explain my own situation a little bit. This is probably going to end up being long-winded, but I always find it valuable to read the stories of people who are battling with (or who have purportedly conquered) SD. Reading their experiences is like a fun-but-sometimes-frustrating exercise of piecing together a really complicated puzzle. If anything, I've learned that (1) the Science behind these sorts of skin problems is severely lagging and pretty much all we have to help us are personal anecdotes, and (2) everyone's condition is unique and we're all trying to figure out what works for us. But, by providing a detailed and honest account of my journey to-date, hopefully I can provide some helpful puzzle pieces to someone who is going through the struggle. And even if nobody reads this, writing it all down will at least be cathartic!
I'm a 27-year-old male and have suffered with SD for many years. Actually, I'm not sure whether I should call it SD or eczema or something else entirely (different dermatologists have told me different terms), but from what I've read SD seems to fit the bill. The dandruff I don't mind so much, but it is the dry, red, flaky skin around the mouth that I struggle to cope with. When it flares up badly it makes me not want to go outside, and it always sucks when it hurts to smile or laugh. I've dealt with dandruff since I was a kid, but the mouth rash appeared when I was a teenager (shortly after I started shaving with a dirty razor - not sure if that was related).
I was always able to keep the dry flakiness under control by using an aftershave lotion everyday, but at one point in college I made the mistake of trying to improve my condition by using an assortment of oils, lotions and other skincare products. As my skin became drier, redder and nastier I thought that oiling it up even more was the answer. It was at this point that my condition got to be the worst it has ever been - large flakes of peeling skin coming out of the woodwork in gross-looking patches around my mouth - yuck. I felt miserable and my self-esteem sunk to an all-time low. After I came to my senses I was able to get things back under control (but not cured) after I decided to drop all of the oils and only apply (sparingly) the original aftershave lotion that I had been using since I was a teenager.
At around this time I saw a dermatologist and he prescribed me a hydrocortisone cream and anti-fungal shampoo. The redness seemed to only get worse, so I cut the experiment short after a few weeks and discontinued both. So much for that.
After doing some of my own research I found out that antibiotics are commonly prescribed to treat "perioral dermatitis", so I tried a course of doxycyline, and WOW. The red, dry flakiness got knocked the **** out after only a few days. I felt very happy and believed that I had finally cured myself. I think I was taking 100 mg twice daily for about 8 weeks. But during this time things were definitely not completely peachy. While I was taking the antibiotics, and for months afterwards, I suffered from increased anxiety and had multiple incidences of panic attacks. In retrospect I strongly suspect that it was the antibiotics that caused these symptoms. For this reason, and because of all the stuff we've all read about how antibiotics negatively affect your gut bacteria, I would only recommend this route as a last resort.
In any case, the dreaded red and flaky skin came back with a vengeance about a year and a half later. Again, it appeared after I grew a beard and then shaved it off with a razor that hadn't been washed in a long while, so I have a strong suspicion that shaving with a dirty/unhygienic razor is _somehow_ a trigger (and I have read at least one corroborating anecdote on the internet. What a weird mystery this disease is).
I decided not to repeat my experience with antibiotics and made a second trip to the dermatologist's office. This one said "a-ha, eczema!" (just like the last one said "a-ha, seborrheic dermatitis!") and told me to rub Aquanil HC on my face (a mild, non-prescription steroid lotion). I was skeptical since the steroid lotion that my previous dermatologist gave me seemed to do nothing except make things worse, but I gave it a try. And, viola!, the flakiness disappeared. There was still noticeable redness and dryness, but at least I did not have to deal with unsightly flakes of skin peeling from my face whenever I opened my mouth to laugh or eat a burger, so I counted it as a major victory.
After reading about some of the undesirable side effects that can come from long-term use of topical steroids, I decided to research other treatment possibilities. It was at this point (just a couple months ago) that I started to seriously consider that diet, particularly food sensitivities, might play a major role in my SD. I read about FODMAPs (a fledgling area of research that is backed by a lot of science, I should point out) and realized that I suffered from many of the symptoms that a low-FODMAP diet tends to address: bloating, bowel movement issues, halitosis. I gave it a shot and, quite dramatically, those three issues disappeared for me, which my whole life I had just assumed were normal (my stomach no longer protruded by 3x its original size after a meal, I no longer had miserable incomplete bowel movements, and my bad breath went away. Woohoo!!). I can't say that a low-FODMAP diet by itself did anything for my SD, but it did inspire me by showing me what a dramatic effect diet can have.
I did some research and found claims that people cured their eczema by eliminating nightshades from their diet. I realized that many of the same foods that people commonly report as triggers for their SD/PD are from the Asterid classification of plants (coffee, tea, peppermint, peppers - sound familiar?! Nightshades are included), or are related (e.g. most yeast comes from potatoes, apparently). I gave a shot at an elimination-style diet in which I avoid FODMAPs, refined Sugar and asterids, and the effect has been awesome. The redness is now only slightly visible (up-close and under certain lighting), the dryness is gone, and the flakes are nowhere to be seen, _as long as_ I stick to my diet. I'm only human, so occasionally, at a frequency of once every 2-3 weeks I'll eat one of the forbidden foods, and quite predictably the flakes come right back (usually the next day or so). When this happens I apply a little bit of the Aquanil and it subsides right away again. I've been doing this for a couple months now.
Writing all of this out makes me realize how fortunate I am, but obviously my SD is not completely cured, and I don't know how much of my success is attributable to the steroid lotion and to the diet. But I can say for certain that diet has had a tremendous effect, and my quality-of-life is much improved. At this point I'm experimenting with figuring out what other foods to eliminate in order to get the redness to completely disappear - the OP has inspired me to go get an IgE test done. Again, I'd love to hear from the OP or from other people about their experiences with diet and SD. If you want to talk in more depth about this, don't hesitate to email me: anjin65897 at gmail

I've had the same problem since I was a kid, and I've actually found a combo of products to finally do the trick once and for all. I moisturize my face with Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream in the morning and at night, and I use the same brand's Lip Therapy balm throughout the day. I think the balm is as heavy-duty moisturizing as the moisturizer itself, so this has been a life-saver together.

I highly recommend you check out a product called Restore for leaky gut. The website is called restore4life. I'm currently using the product with AMAZING success. It's important to eat healthier (organic when possible) no sugars, breads, alcohol etc. and there are no side effects if using supplements. Scientific research and published studies got me interested, trying it and seeing the results made me a believer. I don't work for the company, just spreading the word. Best wishes in your quest for clearer skin.

Hey Peach, Ive been dealing with SD for about 3-4 years now. It started when I took a fat burner pill which had intense amount of caffeine and god knows what other chemicals. Ever since then, my SD has started and has started to spread from nose to cheeks to eyebrows to forehead, and even to my chin. I was wondering want brand and company do you use for the salt and the extra virgin olive oil. Looking forward to using your method! And could you tell me how and when you use it. And for how long do you keep it on your face. I mightve missed it in your previous posts.

Thank you for that I needed to hear about other ways to keep my eczema from flare-ups around the times when it's hot outside.I use coconut oil on my body because that helps keep it moisturized.I also use peroxide too especially when the blisters arise on my feet on top of my feet.
