Hi and thank you for your site.
My story is kinda similar but also different in a way.
3 years ago, during winter I got a a lot of acne on my forehead and panicked since this has never happened before. I changed shampoos and tried a bunch of cleaning creams and somehow fixed it (forgot how tbh).
Last winter I changed jobs and during the winter I got a pretty bad rash on my forehead and a really itchy scalp. I went to many doctors and they all told me that it’s just acne…resulting in using many acne creams, of course making the condition worse. Out of everything, I think that zineryt was the only acne medication that worked.
I went to different doctors telling me the same until I went to a microbiology doctor who told me that I have SD and I should stop using acne creams and just clean my face with baby soap. I decided to try that and it worked perfectly for the first few months.
The problem is that winter is coming and with winter I feel my scalp itching more and more. This is why I want to ask:
- Is there anytthing different you guys do in the winter?
- How often do you wash your hair? I have heard that it’s good not to shower that often but what does that actually mean? I wash my hair every second day and can’t imagine washing it not that often?
- Is there a connection between long/short hair and SD?
- What is the shampoo you are using for daily use? I’ve been using Ducray with Nizoral once a week or Ducray DS once a week. Actually what is your showering routine? I can’t find it here for some reason.
Currently, i’m waiting for the winter to see if I would be able to maintain my so far decent results. If I do, then i’d be really happy. I’m only using a simple garnier washing gel for my face and Bioderma’s DS from time to time on my forehead.
