Hi everybody, I'm new to this site and this is my second post.
After I realised that I'm allergic to BP, I started looking for alternative natural spot treatments. I used to get an occasional pimple once every few months all these years, but threading has caused my chin to break out. I made a paste of turmeric powder and water and applied it only on my two active pimples overnight. In the morning, my skin was stained yellow. One pimple had dried up and had become smaller but the other was unaffected. I repeated the process the next night. In the morning, the dried up pimple had almost gone away and the other pimple filled with pus fell off.
Whenever I get pus filled pimples, they leave a PIH mark although I never touch them or pick them. The pus pimple that fell off has left a mark too but I think I can help fade it with turmeric. The other pimple that dried up will hopefully leave no trace.
With regards to the yellow staining, it goes away when you wash your face in the morning.
Do try it out after performing a patch test to ensure that you are not allergic and let me know. People who have already used turmeric can please share their experiences.
Attached below is a picture of my chin taken now. I have highlighted the pimples that turmeric helped remove. Can anyone help me with my PIH marks?
Please do reply. It does wonders to know that someone has an opinion or idea to help me when I am feeling hopeless.
