  1. White Pus Zits Around Mouth And Chin! - Help! Help!

    You're washing with head and shoulders in the morning, sulfur mask and Nizoral at night? This seems extremely drying for your face. Bacterial or fungal infections will only continue to spread if you keep deteriorating your skin barrier imo. I'd suggest only using nizoral at night, and using a gentle skin cleanser or water in the morning.

    Caprylic/capric triglyceride is essential MCT oil. MCT oil is composed only of C8 and C10 oils. Malassezia yeast consume oil between C10 and C24, so based on Tom Busby's recommendation, MCT oil is not "food grade" for malassezia and is fine.

    I think you're looking too far into this. You don't know exact percentages of ingredients, but I can bet that the polysorbate is in very low concentration. My skin has worked well on Cerave lotion and continues to do so, but really you'd need to test it out for yourself. Cerave AM and moisturizing cream broke me out....so I won't touch those again. I'm going to stick with what works. Cheers,

    I use Cerave moisturizing lotion, which is fine for malassezia (search Tom Busby's posts). I was using Cerave PM before, but I liked the lotion better as it doesn't leave as much of a shine and it's cheaper. AM: Wash with Spectro Gel for blemish prone skin Moisturize with Cerave Moisturizing Lotion PM: Wash with Spectro Gel for blemish prone skin Apply 2.5% BP from Acne.org Moisturize with Cerave Moisturizing Lotion Once a week (Sunday night usually): Wash with NodeP - leaving on for a few minutes Apply 2.5% BP from Acne.org Moisturize with Cerave Moisturizing Lotion I may start using a bit of salicylic acid after shaving, but have yet to try it. Cheers,

    Yes that is me. My seb derm and overall skin is quite good right now, I have minimal flaking around my mouth only. I haven't had a red skin flare up in a very very long time! Both E45 and NodeP were quite gentle for my skin, I was using it once at night. Now I only use an anti-fungal wash once per week. I'd suggest only using it every other night if it's too drying and making sure you moisturize properly (non malassezia feeding moisturizer). Without topicals.....that'd be tough as you need something to wash the daily sebum (which feed malassezia) and to keep your skin clean. You could try washing with water only in the morning or using a honey mask. I'd suggest trying something that you think would work and giving it a good 4-6 weeks. Everyone's skin is different. Today I tried using a purple/brown sharpie on a small white pustule on my chin (as recommended by rocketboysf) and it works quite well! You can see in the photo that it conceals the white pus decently. I think this will be a great way to alleviate some of the anxiety that I deal with from these pustules. I've also purchased a concealer makeup pen and I will keep everyone posted on the results. Next month I will try VSL3 probiotic (450 billion CU) to see if that has any affect as well. Cheers,

    I can confirm that a ketogenic diet does help as well, but yes it is very hard to do! So far cutting out all dairy, including eggs, has helped quite a bit. Accutane does work, but for me it was also the thing that started this whole mess in the first place. Cheers,
