Natural IS best here: If you are responsible for the health of someone with seborrheic dermatitis, you have a duty to make scientific, evidence-based medicine available. Ironically, the stuff that works (topical zinc, sulfur, and/or selenium) are all offered as "holistic alternative" remedies for other illnesses. Often with a bit of a mild glucocorticoid, this is manageable. All else is adjuncts. ...Read more
Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments.
