    Flaking skin after using a topical -azole is a sign of healing. Visualize it as a good thing -- conceal the flakes with a malassezia-safe moisturizer, applied with wet fingers so as to soak into the...

    The medical articles seem to be evenly divided as to whether rosaceans have too much or too little Vitamin D. Therefore half of the studies are incorrect, for unknown reasons.

    All ketoconazole shampoos are made with sulfate-surfactants and you may be experiencing skin irritation and skin drying from the surfactants.

    Hi aussiechick, I tried Mustella Foam very early in my attempts to treat SD with climbazole, and found it to be completely ineffective. I believe that the climbazole in it isn't dissolved and...

    In some cases, the science of rosacea is currently being researched at a much higher level than I could ever discuss meaningfully. For example, Frank Powell, The Charles Institute of Dermatology,...

    Perhaps dimethicone is an old fashioned treatment for head lice, because like you, I can't find a reliable reference for using it as a miticide or arachnicide or insecticide. With lice, sometimes...

    Galderma probably says that it's using Cetaphil Cream because that's what its patents and clinical trials used as a base cream. There could be problems with using another base cream, from an FDA...

    These ingredients would do no harm. I was surprised to see 2% titanium dioxide, which is a white powder used in sunscreens -- I guess it's used as a colorant so you can see that the horse doesn't...

    Malassezia requires oil for its metabolism, but can remain dormant for a very long time.

    Generally you don't want to put anything directly in your eyes. Plus, I believe it's unnecessary:
