zinc oxide is really good for acne. you can buy it in sudocrem and its in diaper rash cream. its basically like a secret acne remedy. it was shown to be as effective as bp over a two month period but didn't cause the redness and dryness. also the american dermatology association said that it decreases the production of sebum and speeds up the healing process by decreasing inflammation. it truly is a cure if there is one. you can find it all over google if you just google zinc oxide acne. there are countless forums or people talking about how great it works and even how you see results in one night. i personally started using it 3 nights ago and i have to say i am very impressed. all my spots dried out, the redness is down 90% and i actually am happy with my face for the first time in about half a year. this feels great and i wanted to share it with you all. best part about it is that its dirt cheap. Posted Image i'm so happy i found this and i look forward to using it!!! :)

Hey what can of brand of diaper rash do you use? Also when you put it on do you put it on your whole face or spot treatment? Do you rinse it out afterward? I think i am going to try this.

zinc oxide has cleared me in 4 days. i think everyone should go out and buy some from walmart and try it and report back in a week if they have any positive results. it will probably not clear you guys as fast as me but it is very good for acne. i really want to see people get clear so try it. i think its five dollars. heres a link to the one i have used: http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B0018SKWBK

3 topics merged. I'm glad you've found something that works for you, but there's no need to create a new topic about zinc oxide everyday.

Because we don't allow cross-posting, we call it spamming. There have been several threads about the same subject in the past, if this really was the solution everybody has been waiting for, we would have known by now. Everybody who has used something that works for them wants to spread the word. Which is fine, just not all over the place. Again: I'm glad it works for you, congrats! Please report back in 3 months to update us on your progress.

now that i think about it you are correct that would be spamming on my part. i will only post on this thread about it. i really think this will help everyone. the medical studies show that zinc oxide decreases sebum production which is what accutane does. the american association of dermatology released the press release of that.

try drinking apple cider vinegar 4 times a day. when i do this it seems to keep the pimples down. everyone try this.

Are you complementing this with Zinc pills also? Regardless I'm going to run out tonight and grab some diaper cream. So I'm hoping for the best.

Guys this does work. I have been using it for 3 days and 50% of my pimple dried up and faded away. It also made my face really smooth. Its quite messy but its worth it. I also take 60mg of chelated zinc a day. One in the morning and one at night.

i'm taking 30 mg of zinc chelated from the whole foods brand. I have been taking that for four months though and while it has helped tremendously i still had about 50% of the acne i had before. Since i started the zinc oxide diaper rash cream i have been completely clear for the past 6 days.

Which is better cream or ointment?

i was using sudocrem for 2 days and i had an initial break out from it. i switched to a different cream called susan browns diaper rash cream and that has kept me clear. they both will work because they have zinc oxide.

Allright, I'll bite.
I just put on 40% Zinc oxide and my daily vitamin has 400mg of Zinc. I don't want to sleep with the zinc on because I use Differin at night, so I'll be wearing it during the day. Also, I picked up a new moisturizer: Say yes to Carrots, that has 5% zinc oxide, and chammomile. Will keep everyone posted on whether this works or not.

First impressions: VERY thick (duh it's diaper cream), and doesn't rub in. Thank goodness I work from home because I look like Morticia Addams. Otherwise, slight tingle when I put it on. Absorbed pretty well, only the slightest greasy feeling. Here goes nothing...

Ichance23, you should make a kind of regimen like post, and type down all the things you do (that you know for sure worked for you) in the day and when etc, so others can follow your regimen and see if it works for them? It would defiantly help me if I tried it Posted Image.

I just got the Walgreen's Store brand Zinc Oxide ointment 40% ($5) and I use Say Yes to Carrots Daily moisturizer with 5% zinc oxide and chamommile. I just put it on today.
I was using neutrogena daily SPF moisturizer, but it started to burn, and I got a rash on my neck, so I stopped using it. Its one of the only things I use with more than 3 ingredients. Usually the more ingredients, the more negative reactions I get.
