Ontario resident Jessica Williams has finally found a product that helps with the symptoms associated with her seborrheic dermatitis, a skin condition that affects approximately five percent of the world’s population.
“I just wanted to say thank you for DermaKB™,” said Williams in an email to Kane Biotech Inc. “I’ve tried for years with no luck to manage seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and neck. I’ve used your shampoo and scalp detoxifier for a few weeks and couldn’t be happier. Early days I guess, but I am completely symptom free.”
The 40-year-old Williams has battled her skin condition since her early twenties and had tried everything she could find before discovering the DermaKB™ products on a Facebook ad.
“I’ve tried diets, all natural shampoos, prescriptions with terrible side effects and antifungals with lots of warnings that scared me,” said Williams. “The results would be temporary, if at all. My condition would always flare up again. It would resolve sometimes, but other times it would flare up so badly it was all over my face.”
Williams has experienced several symptoms with her skin condition, some more bothersome than others, and each of which affects her quality of life to some degree.
“Sometimes it’s just the itchiness that can’t be relieved by anything,” said Williams. “Other times I would just hate to get my hair or my skin wet, which irritates the condition a lot more, as does the hot and humid weather we have here. Occasionally it would be very visible, and it looked sore. That would be the worst, because then I’d have to explain to people what was wrong. It’s not something you can really cover up with makeup.”
Williams found that her skin condition impacted her daily life and limited activities that she had always enjoyed, due to symptoms that had plagued her for decades without any significant relief.
“We have a pool, and I wouldn’t use it very often because my skin would become so uncomfortable when it was moist,” said Williams. “It seems ridiculous that your skin would become itchy when it gets wet, but it does. The condition really does impact the little things in your life that you would like to participate in.”
Williams said she was never sure what might cause her condition to flare up. Was it stress, something she ate, the product she used, the weather? For her, the worst part was that nobody seemed to really understand her condition very well.
“I did go to a dermatologist,” said Williams. “And they were quick to just write a prescription. To me, it almost feels like they don’t care about this type of condition that much, because it can affect your quality of life, but it’s not life threatening.
“The medication was a really thick ointment, which wasn’t great for putting in your hair. And it was listed as having all kinds of terrible side effects. The worst being a higher risk of getting skin cancer and other things. That didn’t seem like it would be a very good trade-off.”
Before finding success with DermaKB™ shampoo and detoxifier, Williams said she had bought every product she could find in the dandruff isle at the drugstore, with limited success. Some would work for a little while and then just stop working. She also tried specialized diets without success.
“I’ve tried a million different diets,” said Williams “I’ve tried elimination diets where you’re pretty much not eating anything. No eggs, no dairy, no red meat, and then you slowly add them back in. Nothing worked, just like everything else I tried.”
Williams has been using the DermaKB™ shampoo and detoxifier for over a month now, after reading about its primarily natural method of breaking down biofilms — the culprit that hinders the remedy of many common skin conditions.
“I’m not a scientist, but I’ve read the DermaKB™ information about how and why it works,” said Williams. “I’ve certainly never seen anything else that takes this approach. And it’s mostly natural, which is a huge plus, because a lot of the other options are not particularly good for you. I mean, they don’t work very well and they’re not safe.
“The DermaKB™ product is unbelievable. It does what it says it will do and it doesn’t come with all the negatives the other products have. I get the occasional itchiness, but nothing like before. And I don’t have to change my whole diet and my whole life.
“I’m just so happy it works.”
