Go right ahead: It's a good start for seborrhea and will help. There are a variety of others you can use in conjunction with it, including some old "natural healing" favorites -- sulfur, coal tar. You'll never cure it, but you can manage it. Best wishes. ...Read more

What to do if i have yeast overgrowth digestion problem and seborrheic dermatitis on scalp. Is eating carpylic acid will help to get rid of it ??

Probably won't help: Intestinal "yeast overgrowth" and "systemic candidiasis" are controversial at best. Most physicians consider them urban myths, which is my view. Certainly these things have nothing to do with seborrheic dermatitis, and I doubt caprylic acid will help either problem. It's probably harmless, so feel free to try. But probably you'll do best with a traditional MD to evaluate your GI and skin symptoms. ...Read more
