Does anyone have any info on seborrheic dermatitis/ malassezia yeast? Can this diet also do the same for this yeast as it does for candida? I would assume so, anyway, I have searched and haven’t found much on it on the net or in this forum…
Thanks!August 13, 2013 at 2:58 pm #109057
I had seborrheic dermatitis.
This diet is anti-yeast. So yes, It will help.
I basically got rid of my seborrheic dermatitis by using an anti-fungal Probiotic bar soap called “Candida Freedom”.
Stick to the diet and try out the soap.August 13, 2013 at 5:16 pm #109072
Right on Danny… Thanks for the reply! I’m gonna try out that soap…August 13, 2013 at 5:22 pm #109073
I also just found out that I have very low stomach acid which is supposed to cause all sorts of skin disorders, so I am going to try out the hcl tablets….August 15, 2013 at 3:14 am #109149
I have to say that I have mixed feelings on Betaine HCL.
Taking Betaine HCL with meals helped my indigestion significantly. However, I noticed that taking HCL also made my allergies more severe (Dust mite, pollen, grass, etc.). I was having a hard time breathing, got very itchy, had hay fever and sneezing. I stopped taking HCL and took high count CFU pro-biotics and within a few days my allergies normalized and I felt better. I have tried HCL on and off 4 times and the SAME thing happens every time, I’m 100% sure the HCL caused this.
With that said, be very careful taking HCL and just because I reacted to it doesn’t mean others can’t benefit. I believe that the HCL may have had a negative effect on my gut flora.
I would recommend trying Swedish Bitters or Digestive enzymes before trying out the HCL.
Good luck!August 16, 2013 at 7:29 am #109194
Good to know… Which digestive enzymes might you recommend? I don’t think I can have the bitters as I am breastfeeding.August 16, 2013 at 3:39 pm #109200
I take betaine HCL without noticing any allergy issues and it has nearly completely resolved my reflux and heartburn issues, so you might consider trying them and just watching for reactions.
Especially because you can’t take the bitters, which are the other useful digestive aid.
Be careful with digestive enzymes. I was taking some prescribed by my doctor’s office and contain cellulase, which feeds candida.August 16, 2013 at 3:41 pm #109201
Oh, and thank you so much, Danny33 for your post. I have some combination of skin issues, some of which is likely rosacea but some of which is probably dermatitis. I checked out the candida freedom product line and discovered that they recommend applying their capsules topically for skin issues so I decided to order a bottle of their probiotic formula and make that into a face wash or mask. I was loathe to spend $45 on soaps that may or may not work for my condition but I figure if the capsules don’t work, I can at least take them as a probiotic.

suesullivan and freedaji let us know if the soap or capsule stuff works, i have a similiar problemAugust 31, 2013 at 4:57 pm #109802
33Means33, you asked me to check back in with you on the Candida Freedom applied topically. I’ve been using it for six days and have seen significant improvement. I can’t swear it is due entirely to the powder, because my skin has been trending upwards in a two-steps-forward-one-step-back way for the last couple months, but the pace of improvement has intensified significantly.
I have had increasing rosacea for about two years — that manifested for me mainly as redness, like a permanent sunburn on patches of my face. Five or six months ago, inflammation (sensation of heat and itchiness) and acne became part of the syndrome — my skin went from being smooth to bumpy and tender feeling. And a couple months after that, dry and flaking skin became part of the equation.
The flakiness, which had been improving, is just about gone. The acne, which had also been improving, is nearly gone as well. I’m down to the original coloration issues, a mask of redness in places, which I think it the rosacea part of things. I believe the rest was probably dermatitis.
I open one capsule of Candida Freedom probiotic at night, mix it with several drops of water and apply a thin wash of the chalky liquid to my face. It does dry pretty quickly and I wonder how active the probiotics are allowed to get in the limited time they are moistened. I’ll re-mist my face a couple times before going to bed. I’ve considered adding a carrier oil to the probiotic before applying to my face, to keep the probiotic moister for longer, but I’m not sure which oils would support the bacillus coagulan (and which might kill it off). I need to research that first, I guess.
So, I think it’s worth a try, particularly as you can use the capsules as a probiotic if you don’t find that they make a significant improvement in your skin when applied topically.

After reading this particular thread, I ordered the soap from amazon. I will let you guys know if it helped me…September 2, 2013 at 5:01 pm #109884
I know the soap is ridiculously expensive (around 13.00 USD$ per bar), but it really does wonders for my seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff, and dry skin. The soap actually worked within minutes of using it.
I don’t believe the probiotic(Bacillus coagulans) has much effect at all at least topically. Its the lemon grass, lemon oil, aloa vera, tea tree, alpha lipoic acid that is effective topical anti-fungal.
I only use the bar ON MY FACE. the rest of my body I use a normal unscented soap. 1 bar lasts me at least 2-3 weeks.September 2, 2013 at 11:27 pm #109899
Just FYI, I got the idea of applying the probiotic externally directly from their website:
Candida Freedom is a transient probiotic formula with anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties targeting the balance of intestinal flora and the health of internal and external skin.
Topical uses aide in the relief of a wide range of skin conditions.
BulletSpray. Mix powder of one capsule in 6 oz. of water. Using a trigger spray bottle, spray any affected skin area (scalp, face, mouth, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, legs, feet). Massage until dry. Repeat throughout the day. Prepare fresh solution daily.
BulletOral. Brush teeth, gums and tongue with wet tooth brush and powder from 1 capsule.
BulletVaginal use. Douche with 8 oz. of warm water and powder of 1 capsule.
BulletBath. Add 4 to 6 capsules to a shallow bath. Wash all skin areas with a face cloth.
BulletPoultice. Make a thick moist paste using one or more capsules and apply to affected skin area. Safe for dogs as well.
BulletFood. Add a daily dose to protein shakes, yogurt, soup, cereal, desserts, beverages.September 3, 2013 at 1:41 pm #109912

I was just wondering if you’re still having success with the topical application of the Candida Freedom capsules? If so, how often are you applying it and at what dilution?
