I have moderate scales on my scalp, going on 4 years, and I have just tried this method, unfortunately has not worked for me:( if seborrheic dermatitis is over production of sebum then it makes sense that the scalp may require moisturising... I know this sounds counter intuitive because the oil glands are over producing oil, but this is because the body thinks there isn't enough.

After trying many prescribed medications from my dermatologist and other suggestions on the Internet, I tried the Apple Cider Vineger remedy by mixing one part vineger, one part peroxide, and 10 parts warm water, as instructed. I used this solution for two nights, and it made my Seborrhea worse. Maybe this is good for dandruff caused by this condition, but for the red bumps and itching and rash, it made it worse. My doctor told me my Seborrhea is "chronic," meaning I will always have it in some degree of outbreak. Also, he said it is hereditary. I remember my mother always touching her head, but I don't remember her being diagnosed with this condition. I am 68 years old, and I have had this condition for a year now. I was told that stress can cause it, and I have been under a lot of stress this past year. People on this and other websites have suggested that diet may have something to do with Seborrhea, and that cutting out everything white, such as bread, rice, etc. would help the condition. Has anyone been successful with this procedure? My dermatologist told me that when the prescribed medications he gave me no longer keep the condition somewhat abated, then I have to call him, and he will change the prescription to another type. I just worry about losing my hair with all of these strong medications.

Upon finding this website, I have tried several cures for my seborrheic dermatitis. I have had no success. I followed the instructions as best as I could, but to no avail. I see no changes to my scalp. I also tried dunking my head in the bowl of ACV for 10 minutes. No major change.
