Seborrheic Dermatitis & Folliculitis -- Review of OTC Treatments for Malassezia
I've attached my review of products that provide effective treatment for seborrheic dermatitis. Citations to online medical articles are for those who want to learn more.
I'm not selling anything and hope to help others.
It's amazing to me how difficult it is to treat this condition, and how many people have the same chronic problem.
EDIT3 : Here's the latest update from Tom as of Jan 24 2014
Hereís my latest update. I canít edit my first post but you can, and so when I got your PM, I was thinking that you wanted to add the latest Review as an attachment to my first post, because thereís a lot thread for people to scroll through in the ďsticky,Ē but do whatever you think is best. The evolution of the concept is interesting to me too.
Youíll notice in my latest Review, at the very end, that I found a way to make the MCT body wash sufficiently thick, by adding collagen, which swelled up and made the body wash look nearly like a commercial shower gel product. The Vitamin Shoppe sells collagen -- it doesnít feed malassezia or do any harm to skin and probably nourishes hair.
The next step for me is to experiment to determine if the MCT body wash and MCT lotion when combined with pectinase and Xylitol might be enough by themselves, so that climbazole will become unnecessary. As I make my products, in the next batch, I plan to dial down the climbazole to zero and see what happens. However, I make 500 ml batches of products, so I wonít know for about 4-5 more months if this idea has merit.
