tennisdesi added a topic in General acne discussionBlack Soap Caused More Breakouts?I heard some great things about black.soap and I decided to try it on my fave and back and chest (have a lot of acne and acne scars on my back!). I bought AAAshea butter black soap from whole foods.
I tried it morning and night for the past 2 days but I think it might be making my acne worse?
It's very drying so I used it with argan oil.
On my face it eemed to cause more white heads and redness. On my back and chest I seemed to get more red pimples and it just irritated my already existing red pimples., Today I also noticed it caused my nipples to be very painful.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is this part of the purging or does black soap not work for my skin?
I really need to clear my skin in 6 Weeks for a wedding! Anyone have any suggestions??
Thanks in advance!
it also caused my back to very itchy? is this reaction normal?

tennisdesi added a topic in General acne discussionInfected Acne Still Huge Red, Black, Hard, SwollenSo about 1.5 weeks ago I popped a white head that was on my cheek and since then after that it has been red, painful and hard. I had not been doing anything besides washing it with my Clarisonic but yesterday I decided to put hot cotton ball to the area in hopes of decresing the swelling and getting out what was inside of this huge red swollen bump while I believe is infected. After 1 day of putting the hot cotton ball on the site my swollen bump has increased in size and it is now more red everywhere around the area! I put alcohol on the area and then put the hot cotton ball on it and it has still not gone away! It is still huge and red and swollen and still has a hard bump, but the hardness has gone down a LITTLE, and now it is BLACK too!
I have attached a picture of the site
I put aloe vera or neosporin on the area twice and it has not seemed to help! I have also been washing the area but it has not helped.
Please let me know what to do....it is a HUGE red,black, swollen bump and I am scared it is going to look like that for a long time....
