    I'm experiencing a similar issue.

    A couple of antibiotic courses last year (actually not doxycycline) seem to have induced SD around my chin and mouth - hugely annoying, as they actually dealt...

    No I haven't done that, since I wasn't specifically searching for information on climbazole.

    I asked a specific question in response to a comment made by another poster about their success using...

    I actually find nizoral quite effective for dandruff. That said, I haven't yet found anything that completely eliminates my issues. Therefore I tend to rank products in terms of the degree of relief...

    Thanks Brady. I've done that previously.

    I've had some degree of success treating what I hope was an acute bout of SD (largely triggered by antibiotic use) with nizoral cream. I'm extremely...

    I'm fairly new to treating seb derm. Can you tell me what it is that would make the cerave moisturiser effective? Is it something specific to this product, or is moisturising in general a key weapon...
  6. Skin irritation/eruptions when wearing eye glasses?

    Has anyone here encountered this problem?

    I've worn glasses for many years, and have often noticed I'm prone to skin irritation and quite severe eruptions across the bridge of the nose where the...

    Last summer, I washed my beard with an anti-dandruff (ciclopirox olamine) scalp shampoo. Afterwards, I found the underlying facial skin to be quite severely inflamed. I shudder to think what the...

    That's the precise problem I've recently had.

    I took a 3 month course of erythromycin in the summer as an emergency measure, as my symptoms were at a historic high and refusing to settle. It...

    Thanks for your input, Nick. It certainly is a massively confusing and frustrating curse we bear.

    I'm trying to tread carefully with my treatments, as I've recently come around to the line of...
  10. Hi Nick, Just to clarify, are you using...

    Hi Nick,

    Just to clarify, are you using ciclopirox olamine cream twice per week as a maintenance thing? Have you ever used nizoral cream, and if so, how would you compare it to the ciclopirox?

  11. Does treating for fungal overgrowth induce 'die-off' type symptoms?

    So my question is pretty much as per the thread title.

    I'm coming to the end of a 4-week course of prescribed nizoral cream, for what I had very much hoped was an acute fungal issue (it seemed to...

    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...
  15. 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...
  21. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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...

    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...
