Thanks, ladies! Okay, it's the next day, and I can definitely tell a difference in the flake factor! Much less flaky along the hairline, and the few flakes I see are tiny. I did a lot of reading on those sites in the OP, and I'm going to follow the instructions on the rosacea website as closely as possible. I used a pea sized amount of virgin coconut oil to moisturize, and I washed my face with honey this morning and moisturized again with coconut oil. I'm also going to try cutting way back on sugar. I eat way too much of it, and I know that encourages the seb derm. I'm going to stick with this and see if it works. I'm willing to make sacrifices if I can kiss this stuff goodbye!

Hey, that's great! I hope it continues to get better. I have no flakes or itching now. Let me know how you like the coconut oil. I've been thinking about trying it, but I really love EVOO.

OMG! I am so excited to try this now. I had done it 1x and then completely forgot, but now that I see someone says it is really working I NEED to try it and stick to it. I am new to all of this stuff but I really am excited! I want to wear my hair in updos again!!
Question ladies- Are you washing your hair first then applying? Or wetting first?

Wavyblonde- I'm so happy this seems to be working for you! I am buying some raw honey tonight. And about the sugar intake- I read this fact a little while ago and it made my stomach drop! I am a huuuge sugar addict and after I read this I knew it had to be making my skin issues worse. This is a life change I'm just not quite ready for, I don't know how I can live without tons of sugar in my coffee

Sorry, one more question. Does anyone think this might help eczema? I was about to send these links to a friend who suffers horribly from it, but then I realized I know nothing about eczema and I could be steering her in the wrong direction. I did find a few links online that suggested honey treatments, but they weren't as clearly written out like the ones we're following.

I was surprised. I don't know that she is doing it, but she is using coconut oil. I would think that at least the oil would help. But, again what I did was just to tell them what I was doing and suggest they try it out on a small spot. She could always ask her doctor, but the ones I've come across here just prescribe steroid creams and the like. My nephew is in India, and I forgot what type doctor he is seeing.

My friend's daughter has eczema, and they are vegan now. My friend said that once she got her daughter off of dairy, her eczema got much better...just her experience. I didn't have any change in my skin while not eating dairy.

Hope some of this helps.

**just re-read my emails from my sis in laws. My nephew with the atopic dermatitis has been taken off dairy, and his skin is improving. My sis in law whose son has eczema is using EVOO on his skin and says he's doing pretty well.**

Yep, just wet your hair down and towel dry it to do the honey. Part your hair in little rows like you were going to apply hair color. That way you get the whole scalp. When i did it the other day, I just did the hairline, face and ears. But I read on the other site that you should do the whole scalp so the patches don't migrate to unaffected areas. Good luck!

Edit: Okay, I have to say, since starting this cleansing with raw honey, my skin is looking fantastic. My pores are non-existent, and they're usually visible when I'm not wearing makeup. I mean, I hate to jinx it, but...

So, how is everyone doing with this? I've been doing mine for two weeks. I have it on now. I am quite astounded at the results. My scalp is great. My face is fantastic. wavyblonde, I share your facial joy. I thought the oil cleansing was great, but the honey has improved my face even further. The novelty has worn off somewhat, and I find myself thinking I still have two more weeks to do this. But, I remind myself that my scalp has *never* been this good. So, I'm still motivated.

Anyone else having good results?

...forgot to add that I'm not losing as much hair as I normally do when I wash. I do rinse/wash more often with this honey treatment than I normally would, but I still think there is less hair on the drain than usual. I'm excited to see if I have any new growth after this as well.

Ugh. No i haven't it tried yet because I haven't had time this week! I was so desperate to try my raw honey, that this morning I did a scalp rinse with it. I took an extra long shower and left the rinse on while I had conditioner on the length. Obviously I'm not sure if there is a difference but I am hoping to start the actual treatment on Sunday since I have nothing going on. Getting out of work at 8pm is a b***h sometimes.

Sorry about the scheduling BLB. My days are pretty flexible, so I have an easier time. I do have to do this on Thanksgiving, so I hope we are staying home. I do want to henna my roots, but I have to wait until I finish the honey treatment. I can't really fit it in easily and want it to have time to oxidize and all. So, that is a bit of a pain.

I would think that even that honey rinse would help. I wish you luck.

Been washing my face daily with honey, and just found some very local honey this afternoon! Haven't gotten to do the scalp mask for a few days, but did it tonight. Had honey dripping everywhere. :-P That's okay, though. Small price to pay if it keeps working! Going home for Thanksgiving holidays, and am hoping to keep it up, but it means I'll have to go around looking like a freakshow for a few hours around a buttload of people. I'll have to hide myself away, like Quasimodo.

oh, that's a good idea...in fact, I used to have one somewhere. When I visit my parents for Thanksgiving, I'll see if it's still there. Thanks for the tip!

I do have a dry patch on my forehead, but I bought some coconut oil to put on that. I've been using that since Monday. I like it, but I find the olive oil more moisturizing I think. I'll give it some time and see how the coconut does. At least I've been able to get rid of the SD pretty much 100%. And, as a bonus, the coconut oil works great for sealing my hair...keeping my fingers crossed on that.

Anyone else having luck?

Hi All,

I started Raw Honey therapy on 24th and applied the second time yesterday (26th). I am following all the directions and washing with raw honey twice a day on the day I am not wearring mask for 3+ hours. I noticed that my face skin and scalp are dryer and flaky (honestly, it seems it's getting worst each time I do it). Itching has increased a little too. I am applying virgin coconut oil, but it won't get rid of dryness. I heard/read that results don't show until end of first week, but is it normal that it gets worst before it gets better?

Thanks in advance for your reply.
Hey ladies,
I'm an SD sufferer too and so far this winter I've gotting it under control for the most part. I have flairs every now and then but nothing too major. But here's how I've been treating my SD, I'll wash my face with a very mild soap (Basis, you can find at any drug store or wal-mart), afterwards I follow-up by applying raw shea butter all over my face, after that I apply Olay sensitive skin moisturizer, and lastly I apply Dermarest Psoriasis medicated moisturizer. I know it seems like a lot and it's not super-organic but it has been working wonders on my face so I will continue to do this treatment. I do this twice a day on a daily basis. But if you want to go straight organic try using raw shea butter and honey mix and apply to face. Leave on for 5-10 min. then rinse off. Also check of the website www.justnaturalskincare.com they have a lot of 100% natural skin care products for excema and psoriasis/SD. Some of there products are expensive but they do work.
