Last year I developed a rash under my eyes and I was promptly prescribed hydrocortisone cream. It didn't help much and the doctor referred me to see a dermatologist. I was told to keep using the hydrocortisone and I was discharged. As the steroid cream didn't help I searched the internet for another remedy and that's how I came across a product called Magicream. It claims it only contains natural ingredients and it promised to clear up my rash. I was so excited! I have recently found out that the cream in fact contains Clobetasol Propionate and Ketoconazole. I was devastated to find this out especially since side effects include red spots and a burning sensation! When I stopped using the cream the side effects were terrible - I don't need to tell you as you know how the withdrawal of steroid can affect ones face. I then did a search on line and found your website which made so much sense and helped me to understand what was happening with my skin. I ordered the Face & Body Wash and the Face & Neck TheraCream and I have been symptom FREE ever since. Thank you from a once frustrated person!! Trish Managold, UK
For women who prefer to try natural home remedies, try apple cider vinegar douches, sitz baths, or applying tea tree oil to the affected area. To create a sitz bath, women should fill a tub with warm water and add several cups of apple cider vinegar and soak for at least 20 minutes. Cold compresses like washcloths can ease itching, inflammation, and discomfort. Naturally, keeping the area clean is essential. For bacterial vaginosis , women can try taking folic acid supplements or eating probiotic supplement with acidophilus cultures to promote the growth of good bacteria.
I have had a rash & pimples on my face since I was a teenager, I am now 34 and am from Africa. I have been using a product called Bio Claire which worked very well the past 10 years but I stopped using it about a month ago because of concerns over an ingredient called BHT in it. I now have an itchy face, with rash around my chin area and over my cheeks and forehead. Sometimes there are small light-coloured patches on my face. My nose and the area around it is free of all blemishes, though it is rather oily. Can you help? I don’t know what to use to cleanse my face or moisturise it or to get rid of the rash.
