Hello everybody. I am a 28 year old male who suffers from beard rash and I also have bald spots on my beard, near my nose. After going to a dermatologist, she prescribed ketoconazole and said to try washing my beard with dandruff shampoo. I am allergic to head and shoulders, so that doesn't help. Also, she only gave me two of those pills. Which had to be taken with a coke, and then I needed to sweat. When I was a few years younger, I was blessed to be able to grow a long, thick beard. It was a good time in my life. Thankfully my beard still grows fast after I shave close to the skin and get that smooth skin feeling. After trying alcohol, an all natural dandruff shampoo, and apple cider vinegar, nothing helps. There is a cream called Terrasil, which claims to helps with skin conditions. But I have yet to try it. Next option is baby shampoo and epson salt. Also there is an all natural scalp cleanser and the main ingredient is apple cider vinegar. Works amazing on my scalp, but not my beard, not yet at least. To me, home remedies are much more reliable than prescription medicines or creams. All I want, is to have my healthy, light brown, thick and full beard grow like it use to! No more bald spots, and no more beard rash! If somebody has some more ideas about how to help this skin condition, please respond back to this post. Thank you!!
