Seborrheic Dermatitis Sufferers
 
When mine surfaces on my face, it's ugly. I have redness, flaky, and oily but yet dry underneath skin. I've been using apple cider vinegar with the mother (pulp) mix with water and my skin feels better than anything else I've tried. I like Bragg's brand.

I put 1:1 ACV to non tap water in a spray bottle and spray a lot on my face. I also do my scalp before I shower. Let it soak for a long time.

I've read ACV has good anti fungal properties with seb derm is fungal so I thought I'd give it a try.

Just thought I'd share in case you're still searching for something to help.

Can you use ACV without the mother? I have a new bottle but not sure if any stores nearby carry ACV with the pulp.

I'm very surprised and glad to see a post about facial SD; I've posted about several times in the past but no one else seemed to have the condition. I know others here have issues with scalp SD but never saw any posts from people who had it on their face.

It doesn't hurt to try it. I just know with the mother (pulp) is best. Health food stores should carry it.

This is also used on the scalp for SB or for clarifying your hair. For the hair I mix the same 1:1 water ratio with it and you can use it after shampoo or after conditioning.

I have it on my eyelashes and I've had it above one of my eyebrows.

Sinistral, I have SD and have posted about it a few times. There's at least one other person who has it here too. I just can't recall who at the moment.

I hope it helps relieve your symptoms. I apply it at night even when I don't have flare ups. For me it also helps aleve the redness. I spray before showering too and never shower in hot water, luke warm to warm max.

I was happy to see this work for me to where it's not all gone and there's no cure, but the itchiness and flaky are under control to bearable and the redness is sometimes gone.

It's cheap. I wish I had heard of this before I spent so much money on OTC stuff and Rxs that didn't do anything.

I have it to a mild degree. This thread from a few years ago was very helpful. And this link from within that thread was even more helpful.

I don't go to quite the extent that is described in that second link, but I've found that if I wash my face with honey in the morning (I use a very mild liquid cleanser in the evening to remove makeup) and moisturize with a tiny amount of extra virgin coconut oil over damp skin (damp skin is very important here) both morning and evening, it keeps any seb derm symptoms at bay. My skin has never been calmer, and this method has been working well for me for about 3 years now.

I tried the raw vinegar several years ago, and while I had good results, over time it seemed to not work as well and be slightly irritating. I also got tired of the smell! Everyone is different and responds to different things, so if what you're doing is working for you, that's great. Just wanted to share what worked for me.
