Like many lucky ones on here, Ive been diagnosed as having both Rosacea and Seb Derm. The seb derm is mainly in my scalp and eyebrows.
Actually the eyebrows is a new thing. They've always been quite dry but recently they've been "attacked".
Thats the only way I can put it. I had very bad seb derm in my scalp and it resulted in a lot of hair loss there. Then the seb derm went away for a bit. Now it's back and its going for my eyebrows. In the morning they're caked with flakes and now the hair there is starting to come out too. Its all very depressing. I can just about handle going bald, but I'd quite like to hang on to my eyebrows:)
But anyway the question I wanted to ask was:
There are lots of different treatments for Seb Derm: Ketocanazole (Nizoral), Zin Pyrinthione (H&S), Coal Tar (T-Gel) and also Selenium Sulphide. Can you rotate them ? Can you say, use Nizoral one day and then H&S 2 days later etc? I've seen the advised in some places?
Secondly when you shampoo you hair with these products can you then use them on your face too? And if so - which are the best ones (considering the Rosacia also)
Also Ive seen it mentioned that you should leave these shampoos on your hair for up to 10 minutes (but at least 5)
Is this really necessary? I've tried doing that twice and it caused the skin on my forehead to peel terribly. Then I had to slather it with moisturiser to ease the flaking.
Can someone advise me on the best way to use these shampoos? And which is probably the safest and best to use on my face out of Nizoral and H&S.
Thanks very much!!
ps - anyone else have any experience of this "moving" seb derm? It's really strange that it should suddenly go mega on my eyebrows when previously they werent such a problem, dont ya think?
