I've been doing a lot of reading and have concluded that I have facial seborrheic dermatitis. Red, dry, scaly patches starting from the creases of my nose and expanding outward onto the cheek area next to the nose. Through my search I've read that using anti-dandruff shampoos like Head and Shoulders on the face can drastically improve the condition of the affected areas.
I started with this treatment about 3 days ago and appear to be responding well to it. the shampoo makes my skin a little drier than I would like it to, but the itching and redness is slowly disappearing.
Prior to using head and shoulders as a face wash, the only thing that worked well (but not perfectly) was Neutrogena's stress control scrub. However, my face would still remain slightly pink-red in the spots I mentioned.
In seek of bettering my skin, I moved to head and shoulders, since many people with the same condition have had great results.
Has anyone else tried this method. Did it work for you? do you know if there are any long term negative effects it will have on my skin? I'm using it twice a day currently, but may be able to cut back once I feel its at a good point.
