    I've never been formally diagnosed with any specific disorder, but I can tell you that my skin condition has had an absolutely massive effect on my life in general, and particularly it's...

    Hi Nick,

    My symptoms over the past 12 months or so have been easily the worst I've experienced in my 12 years of suffering with my skin (save possibly for a period back near the beginning, when I...

    I'd strongly agree with this. My skin was at it's oiliest when I was blindly following the standard 'wash your face twice a day without fail' advice - this was several years ago. I then stopped...
  4. Yes, I am aware of what you say, but I must admit...

    Yes, I am aware of what you say, but I must admit I'm struggling to fully get my head around the 'cause and effect' of oily or dehydrated skin.

    Left alone, my skin isn't usually excessively oily....

    Interesting. Did your doctor recommend that combination, or was it something you decided to try yourself? I'm currently having the opposite problem - excessive oiliness, which I'm really struggling...

    You guys accounts here remind me very much of my own experiences...

    I spent several years convinced that demodex were at the root of my problem, yet no treatment I attempted (tea tree, sulfur,...

    Interesting. That would fit with my experience, as there was definitely some level of irritation caused. Whether it did anything positive for my symptoms, I'm less certain...

    Strangely though, the...

    So I thought I'd post up my experience of the attempted treatment to date;

    I applied clotrimazole cream (minus the hydrocortisone) to my nasolabial folds twice a day for one week. I did this...

    Thanks again, Sejon.

    I'm actually not completely certain it is seb derm I'm dealing with. Though my GP last week diagnosed at least a portion of my condition as such, this is only the 2nd...
  10. Sejon, many thanks again for your very helpful...

    Sejon, many thanks again for your very helpful input - I'm getting quite the education. If I could just trouble you for your thoughts on a couple of final points...?

    In terms of the ciclopirox...

    That certainly is worth bearing in mind, as I've fallen foul of such things in the past. Does this not apply to ciclopirox olamine?

    Edit: Actually, I don't see it on the ingredient list of the...
  12. Thanks for your responses. Sejon, that pretty...

    Thanks for your responses.

    Sejon, that pretty much confirms my initial thoughts. Are you aware of any reason not to use clotrimazole alone on the face (ie without the hydrocortisone), as I think...
  13. First time anti-fungal user - advice appreciated

    I've touched on this in another thread (and received some very helpful tips from Tom Busby & Sejon), but thought I'd post this specific query on it's own.

    My GP has agreed to treat me with a...
  14. I don't think I can offer you much helpful advice...

    I don't think I can offer you much helpful advice when it comes to face washing, as it's an issue I'm still wrestling with myself...

    I used Simple anti-bacterial soap once per day for a few...

    So, my GP agreed that there is a good possibility that the symptoms around my chin and mouth are distinct from my longer standing acne-type symptoms (and didn't disagree with my suggestion/query over...

    Sejon, is ciclopirox olamine cream prescription only, do you know? I have a GP appt. on Friday at which I'm going to bring this up.

    I'm about 7 weeks now into a course of oral erythromycin. This...

    Thank you both for your input.

    Sejon, I also have experienced beard rash before, so I'm certainly not ruling that out. Like yourself, mine have also previously resolved upon/after shaving,...

    Hi Tom,

    Many thanks for your response. Your suggestions are very interesting - quite coincidentally, I tried this very approach (though not, I should add, in relation to the specific problem I'm...

    Basic SD query

    As some regular posters may recall, I had a very bad experience with soolantra cream in 2018. This is elaborated on in the monster soolantra thread, but I have a specific query over one element of...

    Optimal face-washing frequency

    I posted in a couple of older threads recently (on the topic of 'Pityriasis Folliculorum') about my return to active face-washing, after not using any cleansing products and only rinsing with water...

    I went through a fairly unproductive GP appt just yesterday (though I've experienced much worse in the past), and can very much empathise with what you went through. It's really quite absurd that, on...

    I remember it well Brady, even slightly more recently than 10 years ago I'd suggest. I recall clearly how even mentioning demodex in an online post would quickly bring multiple howls of derision. I'm...

    Very interesting thread.

    I'm just going through a somewhat similar experience. I stopped washing my face several years ago and seemed to notice a slight improvement of symptoms at the time - it...

    This is very sad but so, so true in my experience.

    I've lost count of the number of gp's/derm's I've seen for this condition over the years - certainly it's well into double figures - but there...
