Hi , Recently I used the acne complex from Murad.It did not really work.The only thing that worked a little was the sulfur 6% ointment.Does anyone know where can I get any medication for acne that has sulfur in form of a bar,ointment, mask or anything.

1) Dry-Lo by Serious Skin Care: contains 8% sulfur and alcohol to quickly dry out acne. It is pink in color so it's best to be used in the evenings. Found at:

I've tried this product and it seemed to be working great. It's called Acnomel, has 8% sulfur and great reviews on drugstore.com. The reason I stopped using it was that it has a very unpleaseant smell and texture, but I'm still keeping it in the back of my mind.

My teenage daughter has already tried bp, a bp combined with a prescription topical antibiotic (no difference from using regular bp), retin A (skin got worse) and topical SA. She also tried the aspirin mask and this did reduce inflammation.

The most success she has had in reducing inflammation and limiting new outbreaks was from using the Clearasil Adult Acne formula with sulphur (nightly). When I saw the results from the Clearasil, I bought her the Queen Helene MJ masque which she seems to think is helping (she told me her blackheads were easier to extract), but she has only been using this for a week.

I tried to order one 10% sulfur soap with 3% salicylic acid from this site: www.sulfursoap.com -- as it was cheaper than the Steiffel bar soap even including exchange and shipping (free) to Canada. Unfortunately, Canada Customs for some unknown reason, denied my package entry from the US. I will have to try ordering a different sulphur soap like Kavi or the Steiffel one.

Murad also makes a sulfur mask that's very effective.

Just be cautious, whatever product(s) you choose ... you don't want to over-dry your skin, and sulfur is extremely drying. If you get too dry, your skin may start cranking out more oil to compensate and cause you more problems.

I find sulfur is best as a spot treatment, or an occasional mask if I'm really really oily.

Hi, I just recently researched a bunch of spot treatments and apparently, this product called bye bye blemish drying lotion has 10% sulfur in it. It seems to be working very well for many people.

My dermatologist recommended that I try this OTC cream called Acnomel which contains sulfur and basically is used for spot treatment as it covers up the acne as it heals and drys it out.

I'm on day two now so I can't say for sure if its helping but we will see.

I Hope This Helps , Good Luck

Sulfur is the BEST for ACNE surprised.gif !
Go to iherb.com and buy the Sulfur soap and the NELSONS acne gel.
Why dont more products have this great ingredient in them???

Maybe because it works and it is very cheap and natural!

Although it is a spot treatment, I highly recommend D'Arcy Overnight Drying. Check it out at Skinstore.com.
