What natural remedies did you use to put your Seborrheic Dermatitis in remission?
The doctor gave me prescription-levels of salicylic acid, but it didn't seem to help that much. It made my skin peel and the dermatitis patch was still there--it's on my forehead.
Anyone know of any remedies?

Seborrheic dermatitis can be kept under control with treatment and good hygiene. However, seborrheic dermatitis cannot be prevented, and may recur. To reduce the symptoms of dandruff, shampoos containing selenium sulfide or tea tree oil such as Selsun, Tegrin, T-Gel or Ionil-T are recommended. Seborrheic dermatitis that develops on the face and body should be washed with soap and water daily. If Seborrheic dermatitis affects facial hair such as mustache or beard, shaving the area usually helps. Other treatments that may be prescribed by your doctor or dermatologist include medicated shampoos, antifungal drugs, topical corticosteroids and sulfur products.
More and more people are opting for natural approaches to treat skin conditions. Treatments such as herbal remedies and tissue salts have been used for centuries to optimize skin health with some amazing results. Using herbs are safe and effective for the skin and do not contain harsh synthetic ingredients and chemicals like so many skincare and cosmetic products.
Herbs such as Galium aperine (Cleavers) and Trifolium pratense (red clover) have a wide range of therapeutic effects that acts as a cleansing tonic, blood purifier and lymphatic cleanser. Tissue salts such as Natrium muriaticum, Kalium muriaticum and Kalium sulphate help to maintain skin health and promote well-hydrated skin.
