  • Rosacea and Sebboreah Dermatitis?


    Does anyone have Rosacea WITH Sebboreah Dermatitis? If so, what treatments work best for you? I'm going crazy trying to find products that don't aggravate both conditions. Any help is much appreciated!

    Seborrheic Dermatitis [SD] is a disease sui generis that can co-exist with rosacea or completely exist separate from rosacea. No one really knows what causes either disease, but there are many theories. SD is thought to be caused by a fungus (Malassezia furfur or Malassezia), however, bacteria has been noted as a contributing factor to the fungus. One paper states the following:

    "High colonization with Staphylococcus epidermidis, along with impaired skin permeability barrier function, contributes to the occurrence of SD....The results show a predominance of Acinetobacter, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus on lesional sites. The authors suggest that, in addition to Malassezia, these commensal bacteria might contribute to SD development. Likewise, our preliminary study indicated a greater predominance of these phyla on SD lesional skin as compared to normal controls (unpublished data). Studies on both French and Chinese populations suggested that dandruff scalps, often associated with SD, are associated with a high incidence of M. restricta and Staphylococcus epidermidis." Source

    Treatment for SD, I recommend you read this post and scroll down to the subheading treatment. Tom Busby who is an attorney is the SD expert extraordinaire here at RF and his SD Treatment Protocol Thread is worth reading through since this thread is continuing to have updates with Tom's latest information.
