Sulfur Soap For Rosacea
Any over-the-counter cure for rosacea/seborrheic dermatitis on face (facial dandruff)? Can I use sulfur soap? Ointment?
Can I use the following topical: Prosacea Rosacea Treatment Gel, if I have a Sulfa/Bactrim Allergy? Sulfer is an ingerdient listed on the box, is that the same thing?
Avoid topical sulfa as well. There are other creams or lotions not containing sulfa yet at least as effective.
However, sulfate or sulfite are not the same and needs not be avoided. ...Read more

How can 10% sulfur soap be used effectively to treat scabies? (this is as a supp to prescription trtmnt and after the environment has been treated)
It can't.: The prescription treatment (either topical or oral), after a thorough bath or shower (using any soap you wish) will be effective. The next morning, launder all your towels, sheets, and bedclothes. One treatment is usually curative, but you may wish to repeat it in a few days to be certain. ...Read more

Derm said rash doesn't look like scabies but waiting for biopsy. It's itchy, some spots come and go. Sulfur soap seems to dry up some. What could it be?

There is an over the counter treatment called elimite (permethrin). I believe it is inexpensive. Also remember to wash your sheets/bedding in very hot water, and all affected family member's need to be treated. If the treatments do not work go to the free clinic for an evaluation.
Best of luck. ...Read more
No: Every product has some crook claiming it causes cancer or other adverse health effects. These people are pretending to be your friends and protecting you from wicked soap-producers in order to sucker you into buying worthless products. Under a weird law in California, EVERYTHING has to be labeled as causing cancer, and I think this is the source of this particular story. ...Read more
Family & I contracted scabies from our dog. Can we use sulphur soap to help get rid of them? How long should it stay on in the shower? Safe for 1yr old?
Yes, but only kills: Live mites. Animal scabies mite does not reproduce on the human host, so a few days should take care of it. For human to human scabies, the sulfur soap will not kill the eggs, so the treatment will have to be repeated for several weeks. I recommend pymethrin lotion applied overnight and repeated in a week. It is safe for infants over a year old. See the label on one product: http://www.cuticareproducts.com/scabies_treatments_s/1820.htm ...Read more

Perhaps: The standard for rosacea includes avoiding any known "triggers" — that may include sun, foods, topical agents, etc. Beyond that, using sun protection and occasionally antibiotic therapy will help in some individuals.
