  • New diagnosis, update... Is SD triggered like rosacea??

    AS promised I am updating my progress....

    OK according to dermatologist # 4 , again I dont have rosacea, I explained my symptoms and he said it sounds more like an allergic reaction and when he examined my face he said it was more like eczema/seborrheic dermatitis and gave me some diflucan.
    I guess having SD is a bit easier to treat than rosacea??

    I said i had swelling itching, no flushing, meibomitis of the eyes, (my face goes from swollen to perfect to swollen with bumps to perfect again.) He examined my scalp and found SD there along with telogen effluvium.

    I am glad most derms say is not rosacea =) , but I still want to get rid of this thing, my eyes are killing me , what i dont get is if sd is triggered by enviromental things like rosacea ??(my triggers are shampoos, detergents, allergens.. etc)

    I have allergist appointment tomorrow and IPL friday for the eyes, ill let you guys know what happens.

    Well, that's great news.

    Yes, particularly if you've never used steroid creams on your face.

    Unfortunately, you won't get rid of it (until someone finds a cure) but seb derm can be successfully controlled. However, Diflucan, an antifungal (fluconazole), is not very effective against seb derm.

      Thanks auburn

      for responding! .. Mmm just so you guys know one thing the derm did say was that a lot of his patients did really good on a yeast free diet, and he mentioned something about the SD gene..
      Finally an open minded derm!
      I miss my contacts so much =(

        You are welcome.

        There are good and bad yeasts... Probiotics provide good ones, that will help with your condition. Reducing sugar intake to a minimum would be most helpful.

          Your entire face gets swollen?

            nope

            just the cheeks, maybe the nose a little, but it starts itching and is pale. It happens with pillows, covers and certain areas of my house.

            Is seborrheic dermatitis triggered like this too??

                Are you sure they are whiteheads and not "plugs"? Type in "plugs" in the search box on top and you will find out exactly what I mean...look at the pics.
