Cystic Acne Treatment. Diaper Rash Cream?

2 posts in this topic

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

G.ive L.ove A.spire M.otivate....It is much more risky to fear success than to strive for it.

acne type: moderately severe, i get um all : blackheads, whiteheads, nodules, papules, cysts (lots of those motherf---)

When it comes down to it, acne is skin deep, it is an internal problem that needs to be taken care of internally. Yes you can use external products with success but they never last because its like sweeping everything under the rug without actually getting to the root. and waste money!!!

What has helped:

caveman diet, exercise, de-stressing exercises, focus on mental/physical health

vitamin A, C, B, E, MSM, Zinc...


what hasnt worked

whenever i stop taking vitamins or stop eating healthy


oil cleansing method (really bad results)

Benzoyl peroxide (temp help, but drying)

castile soap

salicylic acid (temp help)

dermatologist (helped but too frickan expensive) and didnt get to the root

facial masks...bullshit


drug store cleansers...basically because its an internal thang...

saw palmetto..not much difference

fish for some but not me

Gonna try: Coconut oil
