Cum am reusit sa-mi controlez dermatita seboreica

This post is available in English too. Please scroll to the end of the post, under the romanian version and find it there. 

Ma lupt cu aceasta afectiune a pielii de peste 10 ani. Nu exagerez, iar in acest timp va puteti imagina ca am testat zeci de “tratamente miraculoase” recomandate de medici dermatologi. Aceasta afectiune cutanata apare in zonele bogate in glande sebacee, mai ales la nivelul fetei, dar si al scalpului si se manifesta prin pete rosii, scuame si exfoliere a pielii. Nu voi intra in detalii pentru ca acestea pot fi gasite cu usurinta pe internet.

Am contactat aceasta aczema in urma unor tratamente cosmetice inadecvate, de altfel, in urma cu 10-15 ani nici nu erau atat de bine dotate saloanele de cosmetica si nici conditiile igienice nu erau ca astazi. Imi amintesc cum doamna care imi facea tratamentul facial, undeva intr-un apartament din Iasi, ne chema in salon pe banda rulanta, fara sa dezinfecteze in vreun fel aparutura folosita dupa fiecare clienta. Si uite-asa m-am ales eu cu o afectiune pe viata! Inca nu s-a descoperit vreun leac impotriva dermatitei seboreice.

Niciun tratament utilizat nu a avut efect pe termen lung, doar pentru 2-3 zile se calma pielea, apoi revenea senzatia de mancarime si iar ramaneam fara un strat de piele. Diferiti medici, diverse tratamente….Am folosit timp de multi ani Hidrocortizon, care, ulterior am aflat, nu este recomandat in tratamente de lunga durata. Mai apoi Nizoral crema, aceasta a fost mai usor tolerata de tenul meu. Cu toate acestea, problema era rezolvata doar pentru cateva zile. Ajunsesem dependenta de aceasta unguent si nu plecam nicaieri fara el.

Dupa multi ani, am descoperit un articol genial pe internet, peste care am dat din intamplare si care aproape a condus la rezolvarea problemei mele.  Eram intr-o continua cautare a cremelor de hidratare pentru ten sensibil (e lesne de inteles ca tenul meu nu tolera cu usurinta orice fel de crema) si am citit un articol despre produsele Paula`s Choise. O fata povestea cum fratele ei, care suferea de dermatita seboreica, a reusit sa tina sub control aceasta problema a pielii cu Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel, de la Paula`s Choice. Mi-am comandat imediat produsul (in urma cu cativa ani mai multe fete din Romania comercializau produse ale acestui brand ), iar acesta chiar a avut efect asupra tenului meu.Paula`s Choice

O folosesc de 3 ani, la inceput in fiecare zi, apoi, din ce in ce mai rar, iar acum aplic aceasta crema cam data pe luna, cand sesizez usoare mancarimi la nivelul fetei. Desi proprietatile acestui gel sunt de a stimula colagenul si a minimaliza porii, precum si de a reduce ridurile fetei si cele din zona ochilor, pentru mine a avut efect miraculos: pot controla dermatita seboreica si nici nu mai este nevoie sa folosesc acest gel foarte des.

In ce priveste sampoanele, inca nu am gasit unul care sa rezolve problema scalpului, desi am incercat aproape tot ce recomanda farmaciile. In prezent utilizez Head&Shoulders si, de curand, mi-am comandat pe iherb un sampon pe care abia astept sa-l testez si apoi sa va povestesc despre el.

Aceasta este experienta mea, nu stiu cat de bine reactioneaza pe alte tenuri si nici care ingredient din compozitia acestui gel a avut efect benefic dar, daca ati incercat diverse tratamente si niciunul nu a avut rezultatele asteptate, aceasta ar putea fi o varianta de luat in calcul. Si nu vor fi minuni peste noapte, eu dupa un an de zile de aplicare a cremei zi de zi, am observat efecte pozitive. Deci e nevoie de rabdare.

Sper sa va fie de folos sfaturile mele. Numai bine!

How I managed to keep under control my seborrheic dermatitis

I have struggled with this skin condition for over 10 years. I’m not exaggerating, and during this time you can imagine I have tested dozens of “miracle cures” recommended by dermatologists. This skin condition occurs in areas rich in sebaceous glands, especially on the face, and scalp and manifests by patches of red, scaly and peeling skin. I am not insisting on details as they can be found easily on the Internet.

I contacted this eczema as a result of inadequate cosmetic treatments, moreover, 10-15 years ago beauty salons were not so well equipped and even hygienic conditions were not like today. I remember the lady who made my facial, somewhere in an apartment in Iasi, called her clients without without using disinfectant after every client. And so I got myself a condition for life! It still has not been found a cure against seborrheic dermatitis.

No treatment used had no effect on the long term, only 2-3 days to relieve skin itching and then come back and another layer of skin ran. Different doctors, different treatments … I have used for many years Hydrocortisone, which I later learned is not recommended for long term treatments. Then Nizoral cream that was more easily tolerated by my skin. However, the problem was solved for a few days. I got addicted to this ointment and I didn’t leave home without it.

After many years, I found a great article on the Internet, over which I stumbled and almost led to solve my problem. I was in a constant search for moisturizing creams for sensitive skin (it’s easy to see that my skin does not easily tolerate any cream) and I read an article about Paula`s Choice products. One girl told how her brother, who was suffering from seborrheic dermatitis, managed to keep this skin problem under control with Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Moisture Gel from Paula`s Choice. I ordered the product immediately (a few years ago some girls in Romania sold products of this brand), and it truly had an effect on my skin.

I’ve been using this mosturising for 3 years, at first every day, then rarer, and now I apply it about once a month when I feel slight itching of the face. Although the properties of the gel are to stimulate collagen and minimize pores and reduce face and eye area wrinkles, it’s been miraculous to me: I can control seborrheic dermatitis and I no longer need to use this gel very often.

Regarding shampoos, I have not found one that would solve scalp problem, although I have tried almost everything pharmacies are recommending. I am currently using Head & Shoulders and, recently, I have ordered a shampoo on iHerb that I can not wait to test it and then tell you about it.

This is my experience, I do not know how well this moisturizer reacts to other complexions nor which ingredient in the gel was beneficial, but if you have also tried various treatments and none had the expected results, it could be an option to consider. There will be no overnight miracles, I observed positive effects after one year of daily application. So it takes patience.

I hope my advice will be useful. All the best!
