What the Website Aims to Accomplish
In essence, this website the search for along term solution to seborrheic dermatitis. One that does not depend on suppression of malassezia, but one that starts with a deep understanding of the altered immune response that causes seborrheic dermatitis in some individuals, but not in others.
About the Creator
Most of the content on this website is written by me, Michael Anders. I’m not a medical professional or a skin care expert. However, after being personally affected by the condition, I’ve made it my goal to gather and consolidate the most up-to-date information about seborrheic dermatitis.
How the Website Came to Be
After spending thousands of hours on unhelpful treatments and suggestions I’ve found online, I felt disheartened. With so much innovation in the world around us, it was shocking that there was such a information gap that existed when it came to seborrheic dermatitis.
The website started as a simple bare-bones blog that was a place for me to jot down my ideas and gather my thoughts as I continued my search for a working treatment to my skin issues. As the website and community grew, the content evolved and began to take a much stricter approach; no longer just sharing ideas and hunches, but every effort was made to properly document and reference any of the ideas or suggestions presented.
Sources of Information
Most of the information and ideas presented on this site are derived from peer reviewed medical journals and case studies. Since seborrheic dermatitis is considered a medical condition, it’s important that the information presented relies on ideas that have been properly documented.
In some instances, you will see the content reference animal studies or small scale in vivo (lab) studies. These may not accurately reflect real world outcomes, but can often provide clues to the bigger picture.
You may find some older content/articles that does lean on anecdotal evidence, but these pages are gradually being replaced with more research based article.
Though the website my be a good starting point for learning about seborrheic dermatitis and evaluating various treatments, consultation with a medical professional is always recommend.
