    thanks for the link.
    It was reported was while back:
    http://forum.rosaceagroup.org/viewto...&postorder=asc

    Pyrithione Zinc is the active ingredient in Head and Shoulders, which is made by... Proctor and Gamble of course! So not really sure any of this is new really, but still a good read. I wonder if we can get Pyrithione Zinc ointment made up at the chemist?

    Oh - why?? Because of the zillion other ingredients in it, or...?

    yes it's full of nasty ingredients. I'm not even sure it's that good for our scalps, especially when our skin has problems elsewhere. The condition of the scalp and face are connected and I've heard of people washing their hair with a shampoo and it causing breakouts on the face. I think I'll start another thread to see what shampoo's people use.

    Hi gang! My surge of interest in seb derm led me to this sensitive skin rosacea cleanser with pyrithione zinc:

    http://www.dermadoctor.com/product.a...1527&AID=15750

    "2% pyrithione zinc containing dandruff shampoos are frequently used by dermatologists as an “off label” (not officially FDA approved use) treatment for helping control other conditions such as acne rosacea, tinea versicolor, perioral dermatitits, psoriasis and eczema."

    I have no affiliation with the company. I was excited to find an alternative to putting shampoo on our faces.

    I ordered it and am going to try it.

    Cheers!

    Do tell when you've tried it.

    Its got pretty good reviews on makeupalley.

    The only thing concerning me is the sodium laureth sulphate. (Is there a laurel/laureth distinction). Its known to be a bit of a stripper...
