    I read that it is a fungus and causes Seborheic Dermatitis (which I have). I’m wondering how accurate this is.

    If you are trying to get a diagnosis based on symptoms, this isn’t the best way to go about things in my opinion. If you want a conclusive diagnosis, you need to do testing.

    Raster,

    Do you know how they do a scalp test? Years ago my doc prescribed me Nizoral shampoo, he said it’s an antifungal. I still use today, but notice no major difference.
