    Hmmmmm. Not even sure what to make of this.

    Btw, I did started adding the lotioncrafter in after I ran out of haiduts estroban. And it did indeed bring the dermatitis down some, not totally though. I have also backed way down on B6, only because I am a bit hesitant to keep mega dosing it. My estrogen is still high though. I really wish I could get my hands on haiduts estroban right now to see if it indeed is why my estrogen went back up. :(

    As I mentioned in the other thread, using both vitamins E and K2 at the same time significantly reduces my need of vitamin A to control mine. Maybe it will reduce your need for B6.

    Using Thorne drops and vitamin E topically allows you to take both vitamins "by feel".

    Well I have some really old K2 that I actually started back up today. See what happens.

    ^ Maybe it's time to try some fish oil for my dermatitis... ha ha... ha ha... hah... ha... ha... :?

    I could log an attempt (I have a lot of unused fish oil). Bad idea? I'm getting pretty desperate...

    Have you tried jojoba oil (topically)? I have had great success with it on atopic dermatitis outbreaks on my chin/jaw line. Washing with plain soap, rinsing very well and applying the jojoba oil would quell the itching for a good 4 hour stretch. Reapplying as needed and it heals up in a few days with very little trouble.

    I think I read that fish oil could make your skin kind of scaly. :lol:

    I have not! Thank you for the recommendation. However, I really want to get to the root of the issue, but I'll look into it. :)

    I tried some last night on my itchy rash. Nothing earth-shattering, but no worse. May work over a period of time. Thanks for the tip though. I'm thinking of eliminating soap and using warm compress with maybe some cleansing oil. Skin too sensitive for soap nowadays. btw- don't scream- sunflower oil applied topically is supposed to help skin barrier/itching. I'd rather smell like a plant than a fish. ;)

    Peat has mentioned skin problems with PUFA deficient diets caused by lack of B-vitamins. Wikipedia says about seborrheic dermatitis:

    In children, excessive vitamin A intake can cause seborrhoeic dermatitis.[18] Lack of biotin,[17] pyridoxine (vitamin B6)[17][19] and riboflavin (vitamin B2)[17] may also be a cause.

    Lower PUFA levels are supposed to use up B-vitamins, according to Peat. If anyone has access to the article, they could check if any mention of B-vitamin levels are made.

    The lower vitamin-E levels might simply be incidental since PUFAs and vitamin-E exist in the same dietary sources.
