I put Creamy Desitin on the first night and the next morning I woke up with 5 new zits!!! The bad kind!!! At that point I had not gotten any new zits for a month, so it is pretty clear what caused the breakout, and I haven't gotten any new ones since then either.
I put a thin layer of Desitin over both cheeks, my problem area, instead of just dabbing it on the red marks. Maybe that was the problem. But it could be just my body reacting differently - I have reacted great to the regimen, and as I recall Jeetz did not which was why he tried this to begin with.
I say do what works and congrats for your success. -M.

Aw man, i think im gonna lay off Desitin for a couple nights. It has "bleached" my face white. Damn, im gonna turn into Micheal Jackson soon... Anyways, my dad said its making me look like a freak today so im going to try just washing my face twice a day for a couple days.
how much do you put on? you might wanna use less next time, that might help a little

it beens 10 years since this boy (now a man) posted. if only he had known that desitin comes off if you use an oil to get it off. his posts and the posts of others show just how effective zinc oxide is. i hope his acne cleared up in "two years" like he said it did.
Im back to the old soap and water technique which leaves my face feelin good everyday. I feel so good about my skin right now because girls are looking at me from the inside. It feels so good to know that there are people that don't care about appearnece as much. I have hormonal acne and it should go away in 2 years or so. Until then ill not worry about my face and hopefully progress my social life. My dad had the same problem as me, the red spots and all, but they went away when he was 17 and he doesn't even have scars. I can't wait for my hormones to get back to normal!

Anyway, I found this post from searching other posts from different internet sites...I just signed up because the above was so hilarious and two, because the Desitin does work well at clearing up a facial diaper rash. I highly recommend using it. There aren't many negative reviews on using it either. I'm on day two of Desitin Maximum Strength, its creamy, with 40% zinc oxide. Powerful stuff, I must say. I had mild acne but as a female, that was severe lol...Happy its going away & I hope people give it a try.
Here is how I've used it for the past two days. Wash face with my face wash at night, pat dry, apply Desitin heavily to the affected area (rubbing it in but its still very white) and then globbing a bit on the exact pimple...It feels kind of tingly on any open spots (I had a few tiny whiteheads)...Sleep. Next morning, wash off with face wash and dayum. I had to wake my husband up to show him. BTW, he doesn't know that I used baby butt cream lol..But even he could see a huge difference in "whatever I did" ...
Try it! )
