Thanks for the replys
I have had this lingering for a while now, maybe over a year and have tried things like apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, honey masks, etc. Sometimes it looks better but it doesn't last long. I've been growing my facial hair out and remembered today how awful it makes the rash stand out, so I had to shave it...Lol 4 weeks of growth for nothing.
Lately i've been using garlic,aloe vera and vitamin E and things seem to have been getting worse so I cut everything out. I also have been using a teeth whitening gel that I suspect might be a factor in flare ups, trashed it today.
I am in the middle of obtaining health insurance so I will be seeing a dermatoligst sometime within the next few months once my app gets approved, I have heard nixoderm is good but haven't tried it. Will
About 3 months ago I purchased a brand of toothpaste called JASON powersmile it's free of SLS & flouride. I already used SLS free shampoo/conditioner, however JUST TODAY I realized the shaving cream I have been using for over a year now has SLS in it. Come to think of it this rash really started once I switched shaving creams. I also began using a lot of teeth whitening mouthwashes and whitening gels around the same time.
I eat lots of mints, including LOTS winteergreen mints, and latley been eating lots of left over candy canes from xmas....Lol
In the meantime, will something like nixoderm cream help this? Also is there a generic version of doxycycline? I don't think the health insurance by my eployer covers brand names, just generic, terrible policy but better than nothing I guess
