    Hi Flemmo,

    I was referred for NHS treatment, to somewhere in Leeds - can't remember the name of the hospital, I'm afraid - in slightly odd circumstances: ie. the dermatologist I'd seen had said...

    You can certainly get seb.derm. in that area. You might want to try a bit of antifungal cream.

    Mine usually last about a week, but I get big blotches around tiny spots - like you, I find the capillaries become even more prominent than usual! - and they can take a bit longer to fade again.

    Hi Mirradodga,

    When you first asked your regular GP for periostat, was s/he fine about that? The GPs I mentioned it to didn't seem to have heard of low-dose doxy at all, and I wondered if it was...

    Hi Sparrow-legs,

    Sorry you're having a bad time. This flare-up will do down again, though I know it's really stressful when it happens. Personally I wouldn't try and get them to dry up - rosacea...

    If nizoral shampoo seemed to help - other than being too drying for your skin - ketoconazole cream may well be a good bet, as it's got the same active ingredient. Miconazole is another antifungal...

    Hi redhead,

    Starting finacea and metrogel at the same time does sound very extreme. And lots of people can't tolerate sulphur washes, so I'm not surprised you're having difficulties.

    I've never heard of micellar cleansers, but if you're looking for some kind of gentle toner-type liquid to cleanse with, have you thought of floral waters (sometimes called distillates) -...

    I was prescribed miconazole (daktarin cream in the UK) when I first had seb.derm. 8 years ago. It worked brilliantly, and after using it for a week or so my seb.derm. completely disappeared - and it...

    No, not any more. I only mixed it when I was having difficulty tolerating the sensation in the early days. Now I put it on neat. I know it sounds like a small amount, but it seems to cover my face...

    Hi yogataz,

    The tube that I've got lists phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol as preservatives, not the other one - think it's been reformulated.

    I have to say, I assumed there were more than 3...

    Z01 seems to be available from beautyexpert.co.uk. The Megan Gale product is slightly different as it's lightly tinted - that's why it can help disguise redness and why I like it. I...

    Thanks for those links, Sarah. I heard a brief mention of this on the radio a few days ago but missed the Woman's Hour feature. Can't believe that deregulation would be a good move.

    Yes, you can just have it on your face. I don't have danduff either - sometimes have an itchy scalp, but usually it's just my face affected.
