  1. This is my final post on this site. You may have fungal acne, not ordinary acne. Try aplying clotrimazole antifungal cream to the affected area. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aussie Scientist signing off I am now returning to full time work and I will not be able to respond to people on this site as from tomorrow (Tues
  2. It is worthwhile applying an antifungal cream as doing so won't do any harm.

  3. Podo Sometimes people with demodex mites do need oral treatments but best to try topical treatments first. Having said that, I think you have fungal acne not demodex mites acne (from your other symptoms) so persist with applying the topical antifungal creams and antidandruff shampoo. I'm signing off now. I wish you (and Elaine) well. Aussie Scientist signing off Entry posted by Aussie Scientist · Yesterday at 11:10 AM
  4. Giog Applying topical antifungal cream with terbenafine in it should fix your problem. This is my last day of posting on this site, so I hope things work out for you. Best wishes. Malassezia fungal acne is best treated with topical terbenafine antifungal cream (which is totally safe) and washing one's hair in an antidandruff shampoo (preferably a shampoo with climbazole in it - Mustela Foam Shamoo for Newborns is good, if you can get it). Also, do not apply moisturisers, and especiall
  5. Giog Seb derm is caused by malasezzia fungus, so you may have fungal acne, especially on your chest, not ordinary acne (even though the seb derm has now gone). Do you have dandruff, which is also caused by malasezzia fungus. Malasezzia causes fungal acne and dandruff and seb derm. Sadly, I am leaving this site - see below, but some of my almost final words below, may be helpful for you. Malassezia fungal acne is best treated with topical terbenafine antifungal cream (which is tot
  6. Wishful You may have fungal acne. Flakiness of skin can indicate fungus - specifically malasezzia fungus. Try applying terbenafine antifungal cream (Lamisil or similar) to the affected areas. Terbenafine cream is totaly safe. Also wash your hair in an antidandruff shampoo and do NOT use moisturiser or organic oils on your skin, as these feed fungal acne. Keep your skin dry as fungus loves moisture. Clindamycin is usually used topically (as you say) and it can cause fungal acne (an
  7. This post of mine might be useful. If you have dandruff or a white tongue then you probably have fungal acne, not ordinary acne. It is also possible that you have gram negative bacterial acne. It might be would be worthwhile checking to see if you have either of these types of acne, rather than assuming that you have ordinary acne. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aussie Scientist signing off
  8. Thanks Cody I meant terbenafine cream in my previous post (often sold as Lamisil). Note that I am "retiring" from this web site as I have to g back to full time work. I hope everything goes well for you. Best wishes.
  9. I am now returning to full time work and I will not be able to respond to people on this site as from tomorrow (Tuesday) 12 noon Australian Eastern Standard Time. Thanks to the people who have thanked me for the information they have received fro me, which has helped them control their (fungal) acne safely and effectively. Chiarbrb has offered to provide information for people about she controlled her fungal acne. Remember the following - (i) one must know what type of acne one has (o
  10. Clear Skin Hormonal issues can cause malasezzia fungal acne, because hormones cause sebum production and malasezzia feeds on sebum. Thus, hormonal acne CAN be fungal acne - the two are not mutually exclusive. I'm signing off from this web site now as I have to return to full time work. Best wishes
  11. Chiabrb Thank you - I am SO pleased for you. You could try using azaleic acid lotion along with the antifungal creams. Azaleic acid is not acidic - it will most probably help clear your remaining "acne" along with using the antifungal creams etc. Sadly, I am no longer going to post on this site, as I am returning to full time work. Thank you for acknowledging my input to solving your "acne" problem.
  12. Sphinx Dandruff is not normal. Dandruff is caused by malassezia fungus. A white tongue is NOT normal. A white tongue is caused by candida fungus. Try applying clotrimazole antifungal cream to the affected area of your face and also wash your hair in an antidandruff shampoo. Note that I am leaving this web site because I am returning to full time work, so I won't be able to reply to further posts.
  13. Podo Elaine makes good points. My comment is to always use topical treatments BEFORE using oral treatments and ONLY use oral treatments if the topical treatment does not work. Topical treatments are safe and oral treatments are dangerous. Also, note that the the fungi that cause fungal acne are often resistant to fluconazole. See how you go with the nystatin., And note that The Ordinary make a product with azaleic acid in it which you should be able to buy online. I'll s
  14. I think the nicotine causes cystic acne. Nicotine attaches to acetylcholine receptors, and does lots of other undesirable things. People can check the scientific literature, but when I checked some years ago, I concluded that nicotine causes cystic acne.. ..Please feel free to look up the scientific literature yourselves.
