Is it safe to take 1 Ibuprofen in a 24 hour period for about 5 - 7 days and drink plenty of water after to help flush the kidneys to help reduce the redness of an outbreak?


1 pill is 200mg

Yes. Ibuprofen is just a painkiller and an anti-inflammatory, it is only dangerous in high doses (1200mgs a day or more). I take 400mgs a day to deal with joint pain but it also seems to help reduce acne inflammation. If you're still unsure you can always talk to your family doctor.

Good luck!
