I’ve read quite a bit about the ZNP Bar for seb derm, but was reluctant to plunk down $10 for a bar of soap!  But I was in a local drug store today and saw one so I couldn’t resist purchasing and giving it a try.  (I do this for you all you know, sometimes I feel like the human guinea pig! )

So what is a ZNP bar you ask?

The following is taken from a website describing this cleansing bar:

ZNP Bar with 2% payrithione zinc is a unique medicated cleanser that relieves the itching, irritation and skin flaking associated with seborrheic dermatitis of the face, scalp and body. ZNP Bar also relieves the itching and scalp flaking associated with dandruff. ZNP Bar has a rich-lathering formula which cleanses gently and effectively. When used as a shampoo leaves hair soft and shiny. The unique bar form makes it more convenient and more economical than liquid soaps or shampoos.

ZNP Bar For Seborrheic DermatitisSo I’m going to try it for a few weeks and I’ll report back my findings.  Yes…I know…I’m trying all kinds of stuff and if I did happen to come across something that provides some relief for my SD, I wouldn’t even know which product gave the benefits?  Well, I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.

So have any of you tried the ZNP bar?  If so, did you feel like it did any good?  Leave us a comment if you have an opinion. Oh by the waw, I priced ZNP at several online stores.  I think the cheapest I found it was around $8.20 for a 4.2 oz bar.  By the time you throw in shipping, you’re going to have probably $13 or $14 invested.

Do yourself a favor if you’re interested in trying this, and drop by a local drugstore.  Chances are they carry them and you’ll likely get for much less than what you’d pay for it online + shipping.
