  1. You might have picked up some bacteria there. Did you go swimming? Could have been on anything, even a pillow case. I'd get checked for yeast/fungus on the skin. A dermatologist can do this for you.
  2. Thats great. Do you have oily skin? I just love how it eliminates the oilyness on the skin yet moisturizes enough to keep your skin matte for at least 2/3 of the day. It's for my 14 yr old daughter who has cystic acne on the forehead and chin. The soap is great. It's been really gentle on the skin. She's also doing 1 TBS of apple cider vinegar a day and Dan's moisturizer which is extremely gentle. I don't think the soap does anything as far as the existing acne (on her - it may help
  3. Thanks everyone. Just read an interesting thread today on Head and Shoulders - here: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php...=91162&st=0 I read all 12 pages and decided to give it a try tonight on just one cyst for a week and see if it makes a difference. Very interesting because I was thinking about doing this when I found out how important zinc is in the process. Thanks for your input.
  4. If you do it that way, just make sure you brush your teeth right after if you can. Over time, it really will start to eat at the enamel of your teeth ifyou take it full strength, just like lemon will. You should really dilute it in water or whatever you think might make it taste better. But taking it full strength as like a shot leave it in your mouth for like half a second, how much damage could it do? in my opinion thats less damage when washed down immediately with a big glass of water
  5. I found it on ebay - 3 bars for $7.50. The seller is ghar43 - email is [email protected] I got the bars the next day! Couldn't believe how fast it was. I did a Google search for Laurel oil soap and found his name. I wrote to ask him to switch the laurel soap to the brown soap with the green inside and he did. Hope this helps. It seems to be helping a little - using 1 1/2 weeks so far and the skin is looking healthier but still getting cysts. Will stick with this and ACV for a while.
  6. Hi, I'm trying to figure out if some other things might be causing/contributing to acne besides the known factors. I just figured out that the ingredients changed in our shampoo right about the time that the acne turned from moderate to cystic up on the forehead. It may not be connected at all, but I think it's worth investigating. Can anyone recommend some mild, low odor shampoos and conditioners that don't have harmful ingredients that might irritate the skin? I've found an unscented one at

  8. Thanks. Can I ask how long you tried if for and what kind it was? Hi, How long did you try it for and what brand did you use? One of them has alcohol in it which dries your skin. I'm looking at one that only lists three ingredients which might make a difference. Thanks.
  9. Hi, I posted this on the severe acne board as well but was wondering if anyone here had used this or heard about it. Okay, I know this sounds gross, but my daugher's friend swears by using snail slime for acne. Has anyone heard about this? There is a review for something called Bio Skin Care on this site - kind of mixed, but I found something else online called "Eligarden Soap with Snail Slime" and the only ingredients listed are the snail slime, glycolic acid and alantoine collagen. Apparentl

  12. Thanks tash! I'll check it out.
  13. Hi, I'm sure it's been mentioned here but want to caution people who haven't read the entire thread that you MUST dilute the ACV with water or whatever you drink it with. It will eat the enamel of your teeth if you don't. And not just a 1:1 ratio. More like 1tbs. ACV in 4-8 ounces of water.
  14. Thanks Willow! I didn't know this board was here. I'll start reading through and see if there's something that might work for the skin type I need.
