Ok, So I've been battling seb derm and mild rosacea for several months now. It was probably brought on by stress and stress-related insufficient nutrition, hence - weakened immune system.
I went to several derms, ended up with a steroid/antibiotic cream (pimafucort) to apply for a few days, then an antifungal (ciclopiroxi olamine) for however long it takes to get rid of this cr*p, however I see that topicals work only for a while and then the sh*t comes back. First it was only on my scalp, inner cheeks and nose, then when it returned after short remission it also went above my lip, on my chin, eyebrows and eyelashes. I got steroid treatment for blepharitis, just finished, dont know how it will go from here.
Also have seb derm on scalp, unfortunately nizoral makes it worse for me, trying to wash with Stieprox, it also has ciclopiroxi olamine in it.
I also developed ultra-dry skin in inner cheek area - it gets so dry I feel it stretch painfully when i try to smile and it has unsightly dryness-wrinkles, pores are weird - it looks like some of them have "run into each other"and form grooves which look like acne scars.
I use an insanely expensive hydrating lotion for seb derm skin, but it does not seem to help, mostly stays on top of skin and rolls around insead of absorbing.
Any advice on which other topicals i may try?
AND the point of this post - I realize I should battle this from the inside to succeed, any suggestions on the supps I should add and in what amounts?
I started taking
biotin,- recommended amount to make a difference in skin and help thin hair regrowth?
omega 3 (which amount is effective and safe, i.e won't oxidize?)
liver aid supplement/ considering adding milk thistle
I'm 28 yo with some glycation damage, because i was an avid sweets eater up until 2 yrs ago and now its starting to show
I'm considering adding
carnosine (to help reverse some glycation , prevent further damage - DOSE?)
benfotiamine (is it true it may cause candida??? read that somewhere in the forum)
gilsodin (used to take, went on a break) - to improve skin elasticity
manganese (to improve hydration)
evening primrose oil
Need recommendation for a supp that strenghtens the small blood vessels in skin.
I would really appreciate opinions on the above products and some additional suggestions, particularly about supps and also foods that can help get rid of seb derm and rehydrate/rejuvenate extremely dry skin, plus prevent further damage.
