Long Term Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis

This final chapter attempts to provide a comprehensive set of goals and action steps aimed at reversing seborrheic dermatitis and stabilizing your skin for years to come. Instead of going into any specific one-off treatment, it provides general tips and suggestions aimed at securing ongoing progress. This approach is designed to not only help you regain control of your skin, but also assist in improving your overall health and immune function.

One thing to be aware of is that this chapter is not fully based on medical literature. Though it does contain a good dose of referenced material some of the suggestions are based solely on my own experience and the knowledge gained through communication with others.

Following the rules of critical thinking will allow to decide which ideas have the most value. These rules are:

  1. Ask questions and be willing to wonder
  2. Examine the evidence
  3. Analyze assumptions and biases
  4. Avoid emotional reasoning
  5. Consider the interpretations
  6. Tolerate uncertainty
  7. Define your terms
  8. Don’t oversimplify

For my part I will try to abide by these rules as much as possible throughout the writing of this chapter. Reference to research papers will be provided when applicable and assumptions will be explained as much as possible.

Much overlap in the recommendations
Many of the suggestions presented in the following sections often overlap with one another. Any progress towards a single goal will likely also affect several other of the discussed goals.
