I have, what seems to be, some sort of seborrheic dermatitis on my face and on my scalp. My scalp is itchy and there lots of flakes and it sucks... It's definitely inflammatory and gets better sometimes, but also worse.
It could be Malassezia, it could be something else but I've tried lots of things.
Anyway, P5P is touted to be a possible fix so I tried taking it and within a few days of 30 mg a day, my hair starts to get extremely dry and brittle and my scalp hurts a little.
It goes from greasy to dry. Neither of which I enjoy.
I've never, ever heard of this reaction to P5P... I find it very perplexing. And strange.
Is this maybe a detox reaction or am I just fooling myself?
I've had this for a long time and I'm just running around in circles trying to fix it. I'd rather not go to the doctor and get some steroids or something.
Any other guesses as to what might cause this?
I seem to be completely healthy otherwise.
