Yiganerjing, caution

My seborrheic dermatitis dates back well over 40 years. Throughout all that time, the only treatment offered by any of the dermatologists is a corticosteroid cream. It is effective and I hate using it. The side effects are as bad (or worse) than the seborrhea. The side effects that I ended up with include small pimples and raised bumps (puss). They are not only itchy, but sore as well. I also ended up with some redness in and… View More

SLS scare tactics

There are postings on Facebook regarding SLS ... from individuals using scare tactics to solicit sign-ups for newsletters (and presumably, paid services).Any warnings or alerts about SLS are preying on fear – and nothing else. There's no science behind the scare tactics.Along with SLS, there are two other ingredients used in soaps and shampoos that are also part of the scare tactics. So, let's unmask the acronyms and discuss… View More

My seborrhea treatments

Treatments, that's plural for a reason. There is no single magic bullet to treat seborrheic dermatitis. There is no cure. As fine as our medical researchers are, there is also no known cause for this. WebMD calls this a disease, Wikipedia calls it a disorder. I call it a nasty prize in a lottery that I won ... along with about five percent of the adult population. I have managed to find a few things that work well for me. If you try… View More

It's frustrating ... seborrhea

I do quite a bit of research. It's been a mission to resolve some of my health issues. In all of this research, I have focused primarily on medical and scientific data. I tend to ignore the outer fringes – those that claims "cures" or try to sell ebooks and other information.Most of my health issues are due to a barely functional pancreas. With only 1% to 2% functionality remaining, I am diabetic and insulin dependent. My pancreas… View More

Facebook has become a central communications point.Since Facebook is now a public company, the pressure to constantly make more profits means that we are increasingly presented information to get us to click more links and view more advertisements.Many of those hide behind "Sponsored Posts" ... I'm sure you have seen them with catchy titles like "What this person did after seeing this amazed me!" ... click the link and you have… View More

Seborrhea, my treatment (seborrheic dermatitis)

Leading up to nearly the end of July 2016, my symptoms were absolutely out of control. The seborrhea symptoms included bright red skin blotches all over my face, behind my ears, and chin. Bright red – friends that only see me occasionally that caught a glimpse during these past few months commented they thought I was sun burned. Not sun burned (I don't get any sun), but the burning part was real. Not only was my skin bright red, but it felt… View More

A heart attack

I was totally oblivious to the possibility of a heart attack, or even the symptoms – and how to tell if it is in progress.Despite this, I am lucky. While going through a heart attack, I managed to drive myself and my wife to the hospital. Her concerns about driving didn't really strike me, I had doubts about the symptoms truly being a heart attack. So, I went ahead and drove with a promise that if I felt worse I would pull over and… View More
