Sulfur Soap For Rosacea
Any over-the-counter cure for rosacea/seborrheic dermatitis on face (facial dandruff)? Can I use sulfur soap? Ointment?
Yes OTC: For patients with seborrheic dermatitis of the face, we suggest treatment with a low potency topical corticosteroid cream, a topical antifungal agent, or a combination of the two.
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?
Yes: Avoid topical sulfa also. 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.
Compare: Read the labels. The difference will be evident when you compare the ingredientsSee 1 more doctor answer
Sulfur and Acne: I've treated acne for years and have never recommended sulfur, but apparently, sulfur has been used for a long time for the treatment of mild skin conditions including acne. It supposedly works by as a mild peeling agent. There are other more mainstream peeling agents available. You may want to visit your local dermatologist/facial/plastic surgeon/esthetician. Good luck- let me know if you try it!
Can help: Sulfur can be effective in decreasing acne, bu itself or in combination with other topical agents.
ACNE: Your dermatologist can give a special soap if needed. You can use any antibacterial soap
Use something better: Sulfur soap isn't very effective. If topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will.
No: No. As long as fluids are going from one body to the next especially without barrier protection, there is a risk of std.
I got this sulfur soap with lanolin. Is it a good soap for acne or is it going to affect my skin?
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.
Is sulfur soap good to treat and prevent reoccurrence of tinea versicolor? And is there a faster way to rid the white spots on skin. Thank you!
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?
Wait: Without seeing these it is impossible to diagnose on the internet. In fact, your dermatologist was not sure and had to biopsy these. Wait for results.
What to do for scabies so I'm very sure I have scabies, I have itchy red bumps on my groin, and I'm itchy every where. Today it has never been worse, I orders 10% sulfur soap and it should be here really soon. But my question is should I see out help at a
There: 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.
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.
