I’m 30 days into the program to treat seb dermatitis (face) I also have other candida symptoms such as a coated tongue. I started the antifungals on day 21. Had a massive flare up on day 25 which is slowly receding. Have been extremely strict, tongue is still coated, although my general health and joints are feeling good! The first week on the diet my skin cleared up extremely well but has been going backwards since then.
Has anyone else treated their seb derm with the diet? Just wondering how long this is going to take. I’ve have read it can take a month for every year that you’ve had the candida infestation. I’m looking at 20 months which is a bit disheartening.
Would love the hear from anybody that may have some ideas or tips 🙂

I have posted a few times on treating Seb Derm.
This used to be one of my worst symptoms.
Whoever told you that the number of years w/ Candida = the months of treatment is wrong and very misleading. When you hear things like that, blacklist them immediately.
Seb Derm is a symptom of a larger issue.
Typically dysbiosis, candida, etc.
I eliminated my seb derm temporarily using Candida Freedom Bar soap and further fixed it treating my candida/dysbiosis. The soap worked within hours and in 2 days 95% of my seb derm was gone. I also got Ketoconazole from my doctor that worked OK, I used it only a few times and stopped since it was far inferior to the bar soap.
I can further detail this if needed, let me know.

Thanks your your reply Danny33.
I’ve looked up the soap and Amazon does not ship it to Australia! I haven’t been able to find anywhere (so far) that does.
When I looked up dysbiosis it is said that a diet high in fat and low in carbs contributes to this. The candida diet is low in carbs but the only fat I’m having is from coconut oil and cream. I keep beef to a minimum, and have wild salmon and skinless chicken breasts daily along with all the green vegetables that are allowed. Am I working against myself in some way? I’m having a high dose of quality probiotics along with natural antifungals.
If this is the way to go, I’m very motivated to continue, no matter how long it takes.
I’ve have found that any doctor/skin specialist prescribed treatments only work in the short term, my skin seems to fight and overcome them.
Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

The beef could be problematic because it takes 2+ days to digest whereas fish and chicken take hours. You’ll likely feel a lot better if you removed it from your diet.
I can offer more suggestions but will leave it to danny, I don’t have any seb. derm…just wanted to chime in.

I have had seb derm for a long time now. I just recently went on the diet to try to get rid of it as well as the sporadic inflammatory acne that would crop up anywhere on my body. I seemed to notice the same thing, after about a week my skin my looking and feeling great but have seemed to reached a period of slower remission with these past weeks. Although the healing may be slow, it is still some sort of progression. I read that the condition can not be healed but truly do not believe this statement. The diet seems to be working so I plan to stick with it for as long as it takes to see if it is still beneficial to remain on it.July 2, 2014 at 6:44 am #119744
I’m the same shottot. I believe it can be beaten too! The next thing I’m going to add in is herbal fibreblend. That will really clean out built up bowel plaque and parasites. I used it several years ago and it really works. I think in combination with the diet it should give me a bit of a healing boost. That’s the plan anyway. From everything I’ve read cleaning out the intestines plays a huge part in getiting rid of candida there, easing the detox strain on the liver, and helping the immune system get back on track.
I’m in it for the long haul 🙂July 2, 2014 at 7:43 pm #119756

wow it is nice to see someone else out there fighting the good fight with me. I agree, I am in this thing to win it. From the progress I have seen so far, there is no doubt that leaky gut, candida, or parasites are the causes of my skin conditions. My dermatologist said that seb derm is something that I will have to live with most likely for the rest of my life so I CANNOT wait to go back and show him my progress. I plan on doing pretty much the same thing that you are, after I get my body back to its proper running order I think some 7-10 day water fast will be needed, but this is just for my symptoms not everyone.
