A Complete List of Potential Solutions for Seborrheic Dermatitis

First of all, I endorse NONE of these necessarily. I just want to round up every solution that is proposed all over this crazy Inernet, as well as from books, doctors, Sephora clerks, my little Mexican abuelita-in-law, etc. I will keep adding when I hear of new things. So add your own in the comments or email me! I plan on writing an extensive post on EACH of these, so soon this will be a page of links where you can see my report on each solution.
