ACV Cleared my Dermatitis-Weight Loss was the Side Effect

Three years ago my Seborrheic Dermatitis was so bad I couldn't leave the house.
My face was red, flaky, and cracked. My forehead, nose, skin above my lip, and chin (what dermatologists call the T section on the face) was so badly affected, I couldn't smile without breaking skin; I couldn't even bite into a sandwich because it was so painful.
I took steroid creams that had cleared it up, but this was only temporary, and the dermatitis came back tenfold.
I checked the Internet for home remedies. I was at my wit's end. I was sick and tired of the problem.
I found that apple cider vinegar might help the situation, so I gave it a try. Oh my god, that first time was AWFUL. It hurt so bad! You know the adage, "Like pouring salt into a wound"? It was 100 times worse. I thought I might faint.
However, after a few more days of determination (I had nothing to lose at that point), I noticed a huge difference in my skin. The dead skin peeled away, replaced by smooth skin. The redness went away considerably (though I'm Irish and will always have some level of pinkness).
I was amazed. The suggestion was to put the cider vinegar not only on my face, but to ingest up to 2 tablespoons a day, which I did (first straight up, but then I mixed it with mayo and seasonings to make dressings for salad).
Within a month I noticed I was a couple pounds lighter! It was amazing. I had been exercising, too, but nothing too extensive. I'm almost positive the cider vinegar had something to do with it.
Three years later my face is clear (I do maintain cider vinegar use, as it is natural and unaddictive like steroid creams). And my weight has been maintained, too!
