It’s somewhat better now, but I don’t care too much about treatments for it because I’ve given up on it mostly. However, I will try the honey home remedy, and I’ll will share my experience with you.

I am also suffering from this disease from past 2years and could not find any permanent solution to it

Hi Sally,

Sorry to hear that you have had to deal with this issue for so long. Could not imagine how much you have had to endure.
How strong of an effect does dairy seem to have your seborrheic dermatitis?

My experience with seborrheic dermatitis has been much shorter.
However, I spent a great deal of time researching the condition to try and find a solution for myself.
A great deal of this information is available in the eBook (have gone ahead and emailed you a copy).
Additionally, it paved the way for a topical approach/solution that has been work well for me since summer 2015.

Unfortunately, I don’t know much about frontal fibrosing alopecia.

Hope you finally find something to relieve your seborrheic dermatitis.
Best of luck and look forward to any updates.

Hi Imran,

Sorry to hear you have had the misfortune of having to deal with seborrheic dermatitis.
Currently, the Biom8 Skin Conditioning Oil (the one I use) is only available online (purchased through the Biom8 website: www.biom8.com).
It ships worldwide and shipping to India should be about $11 and takes 10-12 business days.

I believe that adequate knowledge is also very important for long term resolution.
Lot’s of my time goes into research and most of the information is made available in the eBook (have sent you a link by email).

Hope you can find something that finally works for you.
Best of luck!

This started 3 months ago and the dermatologist has had her on various steroid lotions on and off. She is going to stop using them now and we hope her skin has not already been damaged. We will look for your article, thanks.

The doctor said I had seborrheic dermatitis on my groin flared up pretty bad with red scaly patches just wondering if anyone has a suggestion of the best remady to use on my groin.

I have got redness and itchiness in armpit, and by going through various websites I think it is due to Seborrheic Dermatitis.

I would like to know if honey and water treatment will be effective in armpit.
