Exosomes 20: Seborrheoic Dermatitis
This blog is about a case of seborrhoeic dermatitis that improved after exosomes given in conjunction with microneedling. This condition is common among babies as “cradle cap” and middle aged men. Although yeast infection is an aspect, it can be considered a variant of normal like eczema or psoriasis given how common it is with up to 10% of the population affected.
Seborrhoeic dermatitis causes flaky skin in the scalp, central face, and behind the ears where sebaceous glands are plentiful. Because androgen affects those secretions, people with low androgen like eunuchs are not affected. Hair loss can occur and typically there can be patches of papules, plaques, and flaking on a field of red inflammed skin.
Our patient is a 66 yo man with a long history of the condition associated with hair loss and and flaky skin behind the ears and in the central face.
Three weeks ago, we performed knee injection with hyaluronic acid and exosomes which improved seemd to help: “My knee is almost back to normal as in like-it-never-happened condition.”
He also received 10B MSC exosomes IV and he wrote: “My sleep seems to be much deeper. I’ve also noted some increase in mental acuity but can’t put my finger on exactly what or why.”
Finally, we did microneedling of his face and scalp with 5B MSC exosomes. This is what he wrote only three weeks after the procedure:
“Seborrhea 90% better on face & scalp as related to scaling. As you can see there’s still redness but any of the few scales that do appear are light in that they’re tissue paper thin in contrast to previous experience of very thick scaling. There’s also some hair growth. Some seemingly fast growing dark hairs too.”
Although the pictures don’t reproduce well, what he says about the thick scaling being much better is clear as well as appearance of some new hair.
Why might this have helped him? I can only assume that there is a strong inflammatory element to the infection of the sebaceous glands and that the exosome signalling helps to downregulate this. Other reasons may involve improved vascularity, better immune surveillance, and growth or reprogramming of exisiting pilosebaceous units.

N.B. On 2/29/2020 I changed my philosophy about keeping these blogs private. The archives up to blog 32 were appended to blogs that had yet to be created when the earlier ones were first written.
I still have voluntary ASMR. Mom’s arthritis is greatly improved.
I explain why I believe exosomes aren’t inert. An amazing case of an overnight in heart rate variability is presented.

After exosome injection, two runners were able to return to running after limitations from tendinosis that plagued them for months (in the case of the 60-yo man, and years (in the case of the 53-yo woman)
In this blog, I discussed how complicated clinical medicine can be. Different treatment protocols, ambiguous results ethical dilemmas and strange phenomena like acquired coffee aversion are part of what make treating with exosomes so challenging.
Using my left foot as an example, I attempt to explain that while some exosome effects are immediate, others take time. Remodeling of damaged tissues is a complicated process. My foot is still scarred and probably will be for life.

I delivered two lectures in Hawaii. The first was about exosomes generally and the second is a password-protected video about clinical applications.

I explain how poor we are at assessing change and how attribution and recall bias play important roles
In the past year, there has been a lot of shifting loyalties in the exosome space resulting in a lot of rumor, innuendo, and bad press. With various parties trying to get each other in trouble with federal regulators, it is a treacherous business to be in.
I describe a case of an 86-yo woman whose chronic leg rash disappeared after improvement in her leg circulation
I use a car wash analogy to answer the question “how long do exosomes last?” The answer is it depends on how dirty and damaged the car is, how well you clean it, and how dirty you get it after washing.
I describe four cases of improvement of osteoartritic knees from my trip to Hawaii.
I explain the three definitions of placebo and why I believe most of the effects of exosomes cannot be attributed to the so-called placebo effect.
Some remarkable “soft signs” of exosome effects include itching (new nerves), twitching (new muscles), and heaviness (a healing FORCE).
Three amigos came to see me and all enjoyed benefits. The best was the 48-yo gentleman who had a dramatic improvements to his irritable bowel syndrome, varicose veins, and appearance.
I address the common observation from patients that exosomes seem “smart” or that they know where to go. In fact, I doubt this is true and that they are no smarter than player piano scrolls are good musicians.
I gave a lecture at the University of Hawaii with about 80 attendees. Around 10 of them were actual patients. Hear in their own words how exosomes helped them.
I describe two cases of improved leg swelling and explain what causes this common condition and how exosomes may be improving it.
