    It’s commonly misconstrued as extremely bad dandruff but they are two separate issues.

    Anywho, I got perscribed the world. Even had some oils with steroids make my scalp sore and I had to wash my hair. I thought cleansing more often would help because it was due to build up, but eventually it only made matters worse.

    So I did a crap ton of research and heard about MCT oil. It’s a dirivitive of coconut oil, but it lacks an ingredient that feeds the yeast that causes this problem. I saw it on Reddit so I took it with a grain of salt, but I was desperate and would have put sheep’s blood on my scalp at this point.

    So I clarified my hair and scalp a month ago and used it for the first time. My scalp was BAD. It was white and it looked like my shoulders had snow on them. I oiled my scalp with it after blow drying my hair and the next day it was completely cleared up. I was dumbfounded. My scalp was a normal skin color with no flakes in sight. The day after my scalp got a little itchy so I used some more. I wound up using it every other day for the first two weeks. That second week I switched to tgel shampoo to help things along. The third week I only needed it right after wash day and I didn’t wash my hair for 2 weeks and there was no dandruff or flakes at all. Now I’m on my 4th week and I’ve been sick as heck with the flu. I managed to shower and wash my hair. Then I passed out. I haven’t oiled my scalp or even put product in my hair *gasps judgmentally* and my scalp is doing great!

    Just thought I’d pass this along. I haven't, since this issue has started, been able to go more than 5 days before my scalp was a itchy hot mess. I would deal with the itchiness for 2 days since I didn’t want to wash my hair that often. I was tired of having to choose between the health of my scalp or the health of my hair but never getting both. This way I get both!!

    While I don’t have SD, or even dandruff, I have an extremely sensitive scalp. It doesn’t show any typical signs of flare ups (flaking, dry areas, or even noticeable redness), but it’ll feel like someone lit a match on my head in certain areas. This doesn’t effect my growth from observation over the years, but it’s enough to make protective styling difficult, and the sensitivity can become unresponsive to even medicated shampoos and scalp treatments.

    So thanks for this, I’ll definitely be looking into that.

    I was delighted to see this thread. My scalp gets scales in the crown and the edges. I used that valisone ointment. MCT oil you say? Runs out of thread looking for MCT oil....:cowgirl:

    OP, I can’t wait to try and as it turns out I have MCT oil, plus I am currently in the middle of a bad flare up.

    I have really bad SD + psoriasis, will definitely be giving an update soon.

    I need to look into this too. I’ve been using Vatika coconut oil mixed with Sulfur 8 and that’s been working well, but I want to see if MCT is better.

    Many blessings. I am so happy that you are sharing with others who may need this. We take so many things for granted and have no idea what others struggle with sometimes. I am sorry you had this issue but I am ecstatic that you have found a solution. I hope that it continues to work for you to cure it for good (if possible). I am so glad you're in remission. Congrats. Good for you! And again thanks for sharing. Who knows if this issue may come up for someone in the thread or their loved ones and this may help them.
