    It's hard to say just because something works for anyone else it would also work for you, but in my case, benzoyl peroxide worsened my condition quite a bit. This was also after I had been using the...

    Hi awgolfer,

    I think everyone's experience is different. Some claim to have complete remission from the symptoms while others continue to struggle. I have had this for 4 years and find it being...

    Most of the shampoos with tea tree oil in it have such a small amount it doesn't help and other ingredients in it might even make it worse. I used to shampoo with baby shampoo, then after rinsing,...

    I second looking into Tom Busby's thread which is stickied on the top of this forum. It is where most of my knowledge originated on treating seb derm and has been quite useful.

    My experience with using Ivomec 1% (the stuff made for animals) was that it only helped with pustules caused by rosacea. If this is the sole source of your rosacea, you may find it to be quite a...

    Hi johnny,

    Your condition sounds and looks very similar to mine. While I have not found (or tried to find really) a cure for my shoulders, I have been using lotrimin ultra and xylitol with mct oil...

    Hi Smithy,

    Maybe you decided to try one or the other by now, as this was posted about a week ago, but I wanted to chime in. I also have seb derm and subtype 2 rosacea and so I wanted to point out...

    I only say this for the purpose of seeing all sides. I do think anyone with seb derm should try adding sunlight exposure daily to see if it helps just as much as they should try anything shown to...

    Based on frequent topical use of borax I would say no. This is based on my own experience however. I have never even heard of that side effect to be honest. But I have bathed and ingested it often...

    zmarc,

    This sounds similar to what I tried for my subtype 2 rosacea. It was a syringe-like tube with apple flavored ivermectin. When I started it I also had problems putting ANYTHING on my skin...

    I'll also add that if you get a Demodex scraping and find it is the source, try Ivermectin topically. I used 1.87% strength and had good results.

    -Blood Test
    -Allergy Test
    -Demodex scraping
    -SIBO Hydrogen Breath Test

    These are things I am...
