Hey people..again... so, remember in my last blog, how i said i was allergic to neosporin right? ok, so, i did some research online, and i found out that most people who are allergic to neosporin are allergic to one ingredient in there- neomycin. so, i searched up antibiotics that didnt have neomycin, and i found two- polysporin and bacitracin. so then, i searched those two up, and i didnt find much on bacitracin, but polysporin had a lot of good results for people. so i asked my sister to buy me some, and she did. when i showed my mom, she told me not to use it in my face yet. i wasnt sure that it was neomycin that i was allergic to. it could have been another one of the ingredients in neosporin. so she put a little on my back to see if it would cause an allergic reaction. that night, my back started itching:[[[[ waaaahhhh....geez....i can never find anything to help me! regular products wont do any good for me. antibiotics work the best, but im allergic to it!!!!! my sister suggested finding some bacitracin, but i dont know if i should....the ingredients in polysporin are bacitracin and polymyxin. the ingredients in neopsporin are bacitracin, neomycin, and polymyxin. which one(s) am i allergic to?! im scared to try bacitracin, cuz im not sure if thats what im allergic to. and i dont want to waste any more of my poor sisters money..or mine.... sighh... please leave any comments that will help me. any advice?
Heyy peeps...ok, soo, i've only started having acne for a couple years, but it seems a lot longer... i just can't seem to ever find a cure for it. so, when i started getting acne, my sister bought some products to help. she got the clearisil pads and st. ive's face scrub. i used those for a long time, but neither one of them seemed to have any effect whatsoever on my acne condition. actually, i think they made it even worse:[ soo, this summer, i decided that i was going to try and end this acne... of course, you know acne, it never completely goes away... so first, i decided to stop using the products my sister got me..(sorry sis:[) then, my mom said that some people used neosporin to help treat their acne sometimes...so i started using that. it was amazing.. withing like, two days of using that stuff, my acne was literally disappearing before my eyes. i was sooo shocked and really happy. but then, after about three days of using it, my face started getting really really itchy. i know that i was allergic to some antibiotics before, but i thought that i wouldn't be anymore now that i'm older. unfortunately for me, i was wrong. my face was soooo itchy, so i stopped using neosporin:[[[[[ neosporin was an amazing product, so i recommend using that to those who aren't allergic to it:[ and for those who are, trust me, i know how you feel:[[[ so, after all that hard work the neosporin did, my face was blotchy and red from the allergic reaction. i put itching cream on and it seemed to go away. my mom gave me another antibiotic thing that amazingly, i'm not allergic to, but it doesn't work. i think the ingredient that i'm allergic to in neosporin was probably the very ingredient that helped my acne so much. now i'm back to normal...that's a good thing and a bad thing...sure, i don't have the allergic reaction anymore, and my face doesn't feel like it's on fire, but, i still have my acne with me:[ does anyone recommed a product that works well for them besides neosporin? thanks for your help:]
