#3478262 White Pus Zits Around Mouth And Chin! - Help! Help!

Posted by JMTM18017 on 18 April 2015 - 10:39 AM

I apologize if someone has already brought this up-- but do you think it's possible you might have "barber's itch", caused by a fungus tine barbae? Dandruff is often caused by a fungus, too.... Since it seems you already tried numerous antibiotics, I'm wondering if it could be a fungal infection. Maybe if you were able to get the right doctor, someone could do a culture on one of the lesions. They look really painful! 

Not to make you try yet another thing, but maybe nizoral would help, or anti-fungal cream. 

#3438547 Double Edged Razor Blade

Posted by JMTM18017 on 29 June 2014 - 01:36 PM

I know this is a random comment... and I'm a female, so it's not as if I shave my face... however...

I did purchase a double edged safety razor a year ago, and have found it to greatly reduce skin problems on areas I shave. I'd get acne type lesions, ingrown hair, etc., with the regular store bought razors.

I think the beauty of the double edged safety razor is that you can replace the blades cheaply and frequently, there aren't as many blades to catch bacteria and dead skin cells, the razor itself can be cleaned in scrubbing bubbles and really hot water. There's no "moisture strip" that could turn gooey and potentially cause your skin to break out. Basically, the razor is more sanitary than the regular store bought variety or the electric razor. It also paid for itself very quickly.

I use a brush to make foamy soap (with bar soap) and the shaves I get from it (it's a Muhle) last twice as long as the really expensive multi-blade razors I get in the drug store. 

I imagine a male shaving his face could use any non-comedogenic soap and make a lather with a shaving brush. The type I purchased was specifically for men, yet I had no difficulty using it without slashing myself. Just thought I'd put this comment out there, since I'm fairly certain the design of the double-edged safety razors would be beneficial to a guy with skin problems. 

If you google "Blade and Badger", there is a whole forum specifically devoted to double edged safety razors.
