    I was wondering this too...

    If the fungus feeds on Oleic acid from these oils, surely combining these oils with anti-fungal essential oils such as Tea Tree or Oregano would cause the fungus to die when they "eat" the oil?

    Default Jojoba oil and olive oil trigger my flare up like nothing else!

    I agree with what's being said about jojoba oil. Also it seems olive oil and sweet almond oil trigger flare up for me as well. So this is the oil I use, found it a couple months ago. It really helped to keep my symptoms under control.

    Just read about this "Oleic acid makes up 55–80% of olive oil, 15–20% of grape seed oil and sea buckthorn oil. In general, edible oils such as soybean oil, palm oil and corn oil contain about 10–40% oleic acid. Among them, olive oil contains 75% oleic acid which is more than 5 times higher than safflower oil".

    Olive oil contains 75% oleic acid, no wonder it triggered my seborrheic dermatitis.
