A Dermatitis Dilemma

Hey there.

Do any of you suffer from sebhorric dermatitis? (I'm certain I missed a vowel somewhere in that first word).

For those of you who don't know what that is, or maybe don't recognize the term, it's essentially dandruff of the face and scalp. It goes a bit deeper than general dandruff, dealing with fungi and enzymes and all sorts of other things in the skin, but for those that have it, it's a b*tch. Itching, peeling, flaking, burning, irritation, and redness.

If you do have it, or closely know someone who does, with what method are you treating it? Have you had any luck with OTC products ala Nizoral? Do you go prescription, such as Klaron or Capex? Have any form of lotions worked, such as extremely dry skin replenishing lotions?
