Cystic Acne Treatment. Diaper Rash Cream?

11 July 2012 - 11:26 PM

So i heard diaper rash cream can shrink a cystic pimple because of the zinc oxide. anyone tried this..

In the past what has helped is coconut oil spot treatment (take about a week), garlic use spot treatment (3 days but be careful too much causes blistering of skin), and alcohol (same as garlic), drinking lots of water, taking zinc..castor oil spot treatment (helped bring to head in a day), certain brands of calamine lotio, prevention through taking care of my body. not masterbating (lol seriously, i break out like crazy when i do)
what hasn't helped:
mario badesco
saliclic acid
caladryl calamine lotion

Might be helpful for hormonal acne

So this is mainly relevant to individual suffering from hormonal acne.  Now acne is caused by many things, but whatever the cause acne is mainly the skin purging.  It could be toxins (things the body can't process), overproduction of certain chemicals, or over/under-regulation of hormones.  

Acne around the jawline and neck is mainly caused by hormonal acne due to DHT production.  Now everyone thought testosterone but it is actually DHT (a stronger form of testosterone) that is produced in the adrenal system, skin, bile, etc.   Now DHT is created by the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme.  This is the enzyme we need to target before it creates DHT....now i like real journal articles but i appreciate those that put that info altogether into wikipedia for me...so here is a helpful link....wowsa coconut oil is an inhibitor no wonder its always mentioned in the literature for better skin... http://en.wikipedia....ctase_inhibitor
