Manuka Honey - Initial Purging
Posted 20 February 2012 - 01:27 PM
I started using in a week ago, rubbing in a thin layer as a mask and leaving it in for an hour. There is no doubt, my skin felt very soft and smooth after wards. Whereas I just has some small whiteheads and red spots, I have started developing 5-6 large, lumps (cysts) that do not seem to be improving. Is this normal? Every review I have read says the face cleared up in a few days, but no one mentioned if there was an initial purge period. I just want to know if I should keep going, or just toss it on the pile of remedies that have failed to deliver

if you can find a medical grade manuka honey, that is the way to go. We use medical grade in the manufacture of Nutralize for heartburn and acid reflux issues and it is extremely effective.
The table grade manuka honey's are meant to be eaten, not placed on the skin, although for centuries folks have done this. HOWEVER, any impurities in that honey can lead to the problems you are experiencing. Hope this helps.Gavin

Manuka honey does have great antibacterial properties but so does all honey. Hope this helps.
