hi im a 24year old girl and i have acne problems, with scars on my face. while surfing the net, and visiting this site, i learnt that using crushed garlic cures acne and scars.
i tried it. but i left it on my face for about 10 hours! and the result is that my skin is burnt!!! where the crushed garlic was placed. they r red patches.
im so desperate, im crying. i dont know what to do. please tell me if those big scars will go? im very stressed and very worried. feel like crying all the time. my face is very ugly now. lots of big dark red patches everywhere. its so ugly i cant think of going to college tomorrow! if u could only see my face!
pls help me. answer me soon. pls! on my email address, or here...
im crying. we went to see the doc today, n he scolded me so much!!!!! my face is burnt! whereever the garlic was on my face, there r red patches of dead burnt skin. n when the skin will fall, my face will have a scar on it!! i mean a new pink skin.
all over my face! its so ugly im ashamed to walk on the streets. i havent been to uni today. asked dad to take me in his car to doc...
pls pls pls tell me what really happened to u.
doc said garlic is very toxic n burns the skin!
u know i left it on my skin for practically one whole day!!!
i'll never never never complain about my pimples or scars anymore, if those burns go away. i swear! i'll accept myself as i am!
Sorry for the late reply. Your doctor does not seem like a very nice person. Anyway, this seems to be excactly the same as what happened to me. I still really wonder why the garlic created such a strong reaction. I would not call garlic toxic, but of course anything can be toxic when out of proportions. My theory is that with the garlic being a very "heating" substance, and that being applied to an area which is inflamed (already heat) makes a volcano at the patch of the skin. (Explanined in terms of chinese medicine hehe). So don't worry, you just have to let the lava from the volcano chill :)
I do not remember completely how long it took me, but i think it healed within a week. It doesn't hurt right?
thanks. no it doesnt hurt, except when i try to peal the dead skin myself...
it hurts a bit (burns) where i had many pimples near each other on my cheek. dead skin has fallen off...skin is dry. dead skin falling but very slowly.
i read garlic was good for scars too. so i applied it(it was very stupid of me, every1 is saying that to me!) everywhere on my face, on my scars as well as on my pimples...
i could have been more careful, and applied only the garlic's juice. but no i was greedy, n i crushed it roughly, n applied the paste everywhere as a mask for god knows how many hours!! and whereever the garlic paste was, the skin is burnt.
thank u for replying n encouraging me. it means so much to me. ur very nice:o)
but what im worried about, is whether it will leave scars. there r too many burnt patches on my face, if they leave scars, im doomed.
Hi and thank you. It seems like it's already starting to heal then.
As for scarring, i do not know if it gave me scars or not, because
i always have some acne or rosacea on those areas. But i can tell you that i am pretty sure it returned to how it was like before this incident. In other words, i was already scarred before this incident.
I understand that this can be a bit frustrating during the days the skin is reacting to the garlic.
I have also read that many people develop allergies to garlic, so there must be some irritant contained in this evil-smelling vegetable!
Well, the burns were quite deep coz there r holes in my face!!! the skin must grow...i hope it wont leave scars but im not sure! there r 2-3 places where the dead skin hasnt peeled off...its where i had lots of pimples close by.
im afraid it leaves scars there...
but did u go to the doc for ur pimples? i never went to a skin doctor...my doc really scolded me that day..i have to go again 2morrow...he said there r many medical treatments for acne! so what did u need to try something so toxic!! now every1 is saying its toxic! after it happened!
I'm no expert but this has helped me in the past: Take some Tylenol to help the burn, put some aloe vera on the spots and try to keep your body temp. cool (stay indoors). Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest and you'll be better soon.
Have you tried doing a liver cleanse to help with the acne? It helped me.
What did the doctor say about how to help the burns? The aloe vera will help a lot but I'm not an expert. I think the scars will go away with time.
We'll always have stress in our lives...sometimes a lot of stress. You'll need to find a way to cope with all the stress. Do you have family or friends to talk to? Maybe go to a counselor at uni which should be free.
Understanding how to handle stress is important. If you're in a stressful situation that can be changed then change it, but sometimes you have to tough it out.
im trying to overcome this stress...doing my yoga everyday...ive started to talk to my friends about my problems...or should i say my sadness, my worries,etc...
i should have done that long ago...kept to many things inside...i always do that!
doc asked me to come again on friday. he said he will give me a cream for the scars. he sounded so negative...
the skin (burnt ones) have started to fall off my face...but very slowly.
doc has given me a cleanser(antiseptic) and 2 creams for burns...have to applied them 2ce a day.
face is so ugly! shudder when i glance at the mirror!
i am not staring at the mirror these days...lol
mom is applying (very patiently) these creams everywhere for me.
THE CURE FOR ACNE IS TAKING LARGE AMOUNTS OF VITAMIN B5!!! YOU NEED TO TAKE 9,000 MGS per day. 3,000 mgs 3 times a day and your acne will be gone in less than a week!! I had acne all of my life until I started taking B5!! It also shrinks your pores so it makes your skin look much better!! Don't treat the the acne symptom pimples externally anymore! You need to cure the internal cause of the problem which is too much oil. It totally changed my life!!
Hello Chandasa, I once used garlic on my face to try to get rid of a wart and it burned and made my nose red also. It eventually cleared up and the redness went away. You need to just chill out!
Relax and stay indoors for several days if you have to. Stay out of the sun also! Don't panic! Time is your best friend. Everyday that goes by your face will heal up more and more. Your situation is not permanent. I don't think you will be red for more than 2 weeks. Check back and let us know how you are doing. Many people get treated by dermatologists with chemical facial peels in which they apply glycolic acid to the face. These people are sometimes red for over a month. Also facial Laser peels leave a person with a red face for up to 8 weeks or more. I would drink a lot of distilled water, eat tons of vegetables, and drink wheat grass juice or liquid chlorophyll for several weeks to aid in your skin regeneration. This should help you.
i know how u feel abt people staring at you etc..
while i've never done the garlic thingy before...i had a really horrible experience at the beautician's when i was getting a facial.
she was SO terrible at extraction and my face was totally totally covered in these dark red dots ..my whole face was full of them !
i had to take the bus back home n i swear the whole bus was staring at me...i felt so bad i almost cried there n then..
anyhow that facialist is on my blacklist now...
so take heart...it *will* get better...time is your best friend.
hope u feel better soon !
HEllo. my gf have same problem. we remove the outer skin which is burnt and brown red color. now it looks like scrape or abrasion. I want to ask now you have scar or not ? how it ends? pls respond. i am not native speaker so i dont know how to say it more beautiful way sorry. I am 29 year old her face ok for me but she doesnt like her own face. i prefer who is she not face not leg or something. i want let u know this and be yourself because u r the only one.
i had pimples and used garlic and ended with quiet same result.itz so depressing ...does those scars or rather burnz ever dissappear ..if so how much time does it take and what fastens the healing ...reply asap please,,,i got school and cant keep on missing it for long..it so horrible
If you have access to aloe plants, try the inside of the leaf on the spots, watch out for the thorns. Vitimin E on the spots as well as vitimin A, should help, also might want to keep some kind of good oil on it, coconut, jobajoba, olive, ect. Good luck.
I had pimples on my face. I have applied garlic and left for whole night and it was burn too much. and that wound became black patch now. its been 10 months now I haven't used any creams for that. but I am using 'Clenveil' from past 1 month but i am not seeing any result. Can you please suggest any medicine or cream. Is there any treatment to reduce that dark patch. Please suggest me. It is looking very ugly on my face.
just like above girl,chandsa, mee too is suffering from same freakingg condition,

or me, topical or oral antibiotics acne treatment can only temporarily clear my acnes. Acnes will come back as soon as when I stop using them. I found Holistic acne treatment works much better for me, it clears and keeps the acnes away from me. I followed a few regimen but Acne No More works well for me. There is a good review about it here
:( i tried removing my mole which was on my face with garlic
and it just burned my skin and my face looks really bad :( so i tried using aloe vera and full fat milk on my face which is really
is really good.. and rubbing a chili pepper will help with the pain/soreness and help speed up the healing process. garlic burns should be gone n 2 days max if you do it 2 times a day and Soak a cotton pad in cold full-fat milk and place it on the area for at least 20 minutes. Milk contains fats that help to combat the acidic effects of the garlic. In addition to this, it also helps to speed-up healing. so try this thing goodluck :P
Hi, I recently did the same exact thing, don't feel so bad, your doc is VERY rude. I should know better but I know garlic is good for you so I put it on my arm and burned a patch on my arm. :/ The good news is its healing. I second the Aloe suggestions I saw on here. I cut a leaf and put it n the fridge so that its cool going on and feels great. Garlic is not toxic, we eat it all the time and can even be eaten raw. Unfortunately it can irritate and burn skin just like ginger because its so strong. I would find another doc if yours believes garlic is toxic- thats just ignorance.
I try to use raw honey for that. I have same experience with you tonight. I burn my face with garlic and now my skin filled with pus and become black :'(
I use raw honey becz it can disappear my black spots also my acne, and my wound. So I try to use that for my burnt-face
I've been pretty stressed lately and made the mistake of looking at a magnifying mirror and thought, "oh, no! Is that a zit forming next to my lip?" It's before the holidays I'd better pick at it, that's a great idea!
Surprise my nothing turned into something because I was tearing away at my flesh. Then like a ding bat I panicked and did a hack research job on the internet and read a single snippet that said, garlic has antimicrobial properties and could heal a pimple. It said to apply it to the skin for 10 min.
In my infinite wisdom of super stressed out hormone brain I thought to myself, 20 minutes is better than 10. I got in a hot bath put it to my skin and it burned, but I relaxed and read and thought to myself, the burning feeling just means it's working. Right!?!
The next morning I woke up with a giant blister on the cusp of my lower lip and bellow my lip. Turning nothing into something truly horrific out of fear of looking like I had a herpes on my lip. Thanks magnifying mirror! (I don't have herpes & I get 1 blemish a month typically on my chin NEVER on my lip). Due to my gross negligence and PMS brain and holiday stress, I now straight up look like I have a huge cold sore on and below my lip.
Happy holidays everyone!!! My gift to you is that of a cautionary tale...if you think you have a zit leave it be, especially if you're staring into a magnifying mirror.
Please do not apply raw garlic to your face it, burns. Laugh and learn from my mistake, don't make your own.
Ok, Ive had them for about a year, Im 16. Ive tried vitamin E (still doing that), as in Vit E lotion and in pills, Ive done masks, lotions, some sun. I have a fairly good diet, I drink lots of water, take multi vitamins. And I work out. Should I just give up and take laser surgery? And how much money is that usually?
Vitamin E and cocoa butter are tow things for scars, but they take a while until you see affects. be patient, you can have bad side affects from lazers. Stick with the vitmain E and try cocoa butter.
Also this a thing called Black Soap, there two the fake one which works, ( black dye) and the one straight from africa ( order on nasabb.com). They really help with acne and blemished.
I'm African American, and I use black soap and drink alot of water and cute out sweets, my skin cleared up. I pretty sure it'll work on non-african american skin too ( I don't know you race). I say this because African americans come in different shades, etc.
Find a good doctor who does laser surgery. But if your
only 16 your acne problem is probably not over...
What cured me was an e-book I purchased online.
Here's an excerpt from the website.
" To cure your acne once and for all you need to stop looking at your skin as the problem. We at acnecured.com will show you that contrary to popular beleif acne has nothing to do with your skin...It however has everything to do with what is happening inside your body. Your skin is essentially only a feedback mechanism for your internal health. If your skin has acne and is not healthy then you need to look at your system as a whole".
A lot of people say that acne is due to your hormonal imbalance as you are an adolescent. But it shouldn't be. why do you need to suffer?
I think its what to do instead of going straight to get laser peels.
What I know is we need to be clean
Wash your fabrics. Any fabric that comes into contact with your skin on a regular basis - clothes, towels, pillowcases, and sheets - should be washed at least once a week to remove oil and bacteria that build up over time. Use a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin to help solve your acne problem.
And if you are using make up, use oil-free makeup. Otherwise you may be stuck in a vicious cycle of covering up acne while simultaneously causing it with your cover-up usage. Find acne-fighting oil-free mineral makeup to help prevent worsening your acne while simply trying to hide it. Power foundations are also recommended. When possible, avoid wearing makeup at all though as it clogs your pores over the course of the day.
Regularly clean makeup brushes to prevent bacterial growth.
And very important-
Wear sunscreen everyday and do not tan. Ultraviolet Radiation is the number one cause of premature aging. It also leads to Skin Cancer in high enough doses. Treat the sun like the death ray that it is. Exposing your skin to harmful UVA and UVB rays damages skin and prolongs post inflammatory erythema(PIE)--red acne marks, as the sunlight stimulates pigment-producing cells.
Not only can the sun prolong PIE appearance, it can lead to premature aging including sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles. UV damage is DNA damage. Sunscreen is an anti-aging must for all ages young and old--preventing future skin cancer. It is the fountain of youth in a bottle. Prevention is better than treatment. There is no such thing as safe tanning but There is sun damage.
Therefore, it is very important that you wear sunscreen everyday, with an SPF of 30.Of note, after SPF 30, there are decreasing marginal returns in UVB protection. The % of UVB protection as a function of SPF Value is a log graph and plateaus after SPF 30. Therefore, there is not much difference in protection between SPF 40 and 50. Sunscreens with a SPF 100 are banned in some countries.
For UVA protection, a sunscreen with a high UVA protection of PA+++ or higher of PA++++ as recommended, especially to treat PIE. PPD is the UVA equivalent of SPF; use a sunscreen with a minimum of PPD20. The PA+ system has a + that corresponds to a tier of PPD protection. Of note, different countries use different PA systems. Japan, and Taiwan changed their PA system to a 4+ tier system while Korea uses a 3+ tier system.
When out in the sun for long periods of time, stick to the shade as much as possible and wear a wide-brimmed hat and light, long-sleeved clothing. Wear sunglasses, especially those that have less melanin in their eyes. Consider carrying a parasol. In Asia, they are a popular fashionable accessory.
I find the scince from Luminesce very effective. The moisturizer is light and has SPF30 which you don't need to get separately and the cleanser cleans off make up too. http://tinyurl.com/HelpYourselves
Recently I've been painting my face every other day (at night) with Lugol's 2% iodine. I put some in a cup, soak it up with a cotton ball, and then paint my face. I had really deep scars on my cheeks and it has seem to have really cleared them up, it's almost completely smooth. Has been also helping with my acne. Not sure if you've tried Iodine painting.
I also use Pure Body Naturals Dead Sea Mask a couple times a week. Not sure if that has been helping with my scars too, but I figured I'd mention it just in case you wanted to try that too.
100% the Iodine has totally been helping though. I posted a question on here recently about how often is too often to paint your face with iodine, but no one has answered yet :/ So far I've had absolutely no problems, only awesome results. I have low platelets so any cut, scar, bruise, you name it, takes a million years for it to go away. I'm so surprised that the iodine has been giving me such great results. Hopefully you haven't tried this yet, and it helps, if not, I hope you find your solution! **Wishing you luck**
Dear friends i know how hard it is to deal with acne, as a female 28 and ex model and dancer i had never experience such frustration and depresion before in my life.
I had had oliy skin until i was about 25 , then my skin was normal and clear and only broke up with one or 2 pimples before my period.
im a vain girl , since i use to work as a model and many times had to apear in magazines and adss from my country, i knew every beauty secret and diet as u can imagine...
at 27 , about 6 months ago , i split with my husband after 4 months of marriage (he got another girl!!) i changed countries and startes from 0 after 9 years in the US.now i live in germany and still cant comunicate well but things are better ..
After that suden change my sking changed like my life.
Slowly i strated breaking up with one or 2 painfull cyts in my jawline , then my back was full , later i even got them in my tummy¡¡¡..jeeeks..
the 3d month was so strong that i felt the pain present whenever i go ,and coulnt wear pony tails no more, it was all red ,itchy , deformed and swolen, all across my neck , jawline and back..i hated myself even thought I could be better dead ...(i cant believe how i felt now!)
in the 4th month my boyfriend took me to a derm who gave me strong soaps and creams that made my problen worse.
we also made a hormonal test and teh levels where fine.
i was desperate , there was no single day i didnt cry ,i didnt want to meet my friends, or work , or dance or even go out of the house....
i tried every thing from , b5 ,urine therapy, vitamins ,quit drugs , smoke , alchool , took saunas ..but nothing would make it better.
At one point i was really sensitive and the minimum would affect me and make me break in tears ..(poor of my boyfriend)
we went to a chinese doctor and told him my story..
he ask about my past and many many questions as well as looked at my tongue and check my pulse...
finally he told me my liver was contaminated by negative emotions , sadness , fear , unger, alchol ect ect and couldnt process my hormones ..(i also had painfull period and strong PMS and mood changes)
..he made acupunture to release heat from my liver , and gave me honeysuckle tea...
within 2 weeks , 50%of my problem was gone.
now ,after a month ive no pimple alive but only pink scars left that i hope will go away after a peeling or something ..
im full of energy , i dont cry anymore , i see life ina different way and im very much more relax ...and i look super again !
here is my advice and how i solved my problem, please try to be as accurate as posible for at least 2 months, and then slowly return to some old habits and check what really trigers your acne...
1-Change your attitude ! , laugh , dont get upset , breath deep , relax , love yourself even if u look terrible, try just to be a good person , do not fight with people, tell your problem to your friends and family , dont keep it just for you.you will feel much better.
2- some sport , Yoga is the best of all , swiming too.
3-get enought sleep , saunas and relaxing baths .
4-change your diet drastically , no more milk products at all , no cheese pleasee!!!, no more pasta or bread , believe me eat JUST vegies and fruits and if u are too hungry some brown rice.no Sugar at all please.
this is very important !!
5-when u wake up , drink the fresh juice of 2 lemons and 5 spoons of extravirgin olive oil before breakfast , (your breakfast should be only fruits) ...its nasty but u will see what it does to your digestive system , its incredible ! this is also very important, the clue to stop breaking up.
6-Quit smoking and drinking alchool.if u cant stop drinking , beer is not so bad but remember that alchol is very liver damaging .
7- after 2 to 4 weeks of eating Vegies and Fruit ,fast on water, milkthistle , honeysuckle and or artichoke tea for 3 days .i know its hard but only after the 2 nd day you start the real detox.this made a miracle to my skin after a month of all teh above.
8-get a chinese doctor that u trust and get some acupunture , he will know what to do in your case.
after my first session of acupunture i had to go to the bathroom for one hour and it ws teh bigest relief in months.
9 - if u are a woman like me in your 20s or 30s , and you think your acne si also related with hormones, please buy VITEX or chesterberry , this is a great homephatic remedy for teh cure of hormonal problems , you will need to use it for 2 or 3 months to see results but it works, also very good for PMS
10-other helpers for woman with hormonal acne .
-review your love life and sex life and try to fix any problems ...
-do things that make u feel femenine
-reduce your weight in 5 % at least , very important.
-geranium essential oil is great for hormonal levels.
-Evening primrose oil too
licorice root decreases testosterone and tastes jummy.
please write me if any doubts and excuse my english, im foreighn .
good luck !! im happy after 6 months of sever cystic evil acne in my neck and jawline!!
I hope this helps. There are so many people that swear something works and I am the kind of person that wants to see proof. We bought the Epidermx from newskinnaturally.com and it's shaved her acne scars off by 70% They have message boards there and people write in their honest reviews plus there are photos so if you were skeptical like me, you may want to check this website out. It didn't happen overnight, but it has made such a great change.
Some of what you said is okay but way to complicated. I purchased an ebook program @ acnecured.com and it worked like a charm. Yes there are lifestyle changes but it cleared me up in less than six weeks. Essentially the program teaches you that acne for the most part is an internal problem and must be treated as such. Yes using a cleanser and other topical treatments can help, but used alone they WILL NOT CURE YOUR ACNE!!! There is a lot to learn when it comes to treating acne and this ebook is the best I have ever seen, and I've bought them all!!! The overnight cures and quick fixes are just scams! To cure your acne takes a little time...but it's worth it.
Wow sounds exactly like my problem. Ihave been looking up Chinese herbal remedys and looking into liver flushing also. i dont feel like i have a sluggish liver though and not really any symptoms either which makes me reluctant. I also cant flush right now as i have to work every day and i cant be running to the bathroom!
I am so pleased you managed to get your life back and only hope that when i finish work in the summer i can go some way to sorting out my own problem. I too have never had acne before and do some modelling. The thought of going in front of a camera now fills me with dread and i have become very introverted and unsociable. Just horrible.
Thanks for posting the tips...i have started to drink hot lemon in the morning and might try the olive oil thing and see how i get on. I have so much stuff to try at the moment and i want to do it all just to get rid of this painful acne on my face but i know i cant. So i am on antibiotics and putting Zineryt topical on my face at the moment. When i run out if it is no better i will try B5.
I am happy to find this forum. I've been reading some posts and I found some interesting alternatives to cure and prevent acne.
But I still have some questions and it would be GREAT if you guys could help me.
Ok. I am 27 years old, so sometimes I wonder why now I am having a lot fo acne, cause I am not a teenager anymore. And actually I din't have a lot of acne back then.
I have been getting a lot of acne specially in my forehead. And the pimples take foever to go away. Some of them are there for many weeks.
The way I have been trying to treat is with a gel that has 10% benzoyl peroxide before going to sleep and by scrubbing during shower with the saint yves apricot gel. It helps, but I am still getting a lot fo pimples and they remain for a long time.
On this forum, I was reading about vitamim B5, liver cleanser and seal salt water,etc..
What treatments could work for me?
B5? Is it good? I heard that vitamins Bs could give more acne
How do clean the liver? Can this help?
What about Seasalt water?
Should I drop using the acne gel and scrubbing my face with saint yves apricot gel and just use one or more of these alternative treatments?
What is MC?
I will apreciate very much your help.
Thanks a lot
I forgot to mention. I also use sometimes the Clean & Clear
Continuous Control Acne Cleanser and the Clean & Clear Astringent .
My forehead is very dry already!
Other things that might be helpful:
I avoid eating chocolate, peanuts,etc..
I have to take some dairy cause I drink milk and eat cheese on my sandwhiches.
I head that it could be stress too. and I am kind of stressed sometimes. But then I read in a website that stress and diet have nothing to do with Acne.
so, lots of good information about what you have been doing, but you left a couple of things out. What is yoru diet like? How much clean water do you drink each day? Are you over or under weight (can be an idicator of acidity)? I'm 25, and up until about two months ago, I always had some lingering acne (never really bad, but just kinda always around). Now, it's gone! Some diet changes, and a few supplements, and it's gone. I've been working with another guy who has not yet tried the supplements, but had some good success with the diet changes. If you want to talk about the details, feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Talk to you later, Mike
Drink lots and lots of water, the stuff you are putting on your skin is not great. I use tea tree oil, which yes I've heard is drying but it doesn't seem to dry out my skin very much and I use the full strength, don't get it on your eyes though, feels pretty tingly. Diet has lots to do with acne, though it may not be all that is causing it. I have been on what I call clean food for about a month now and my acne has gone down big time. I eat hardly any sugar, drink veggie juices(carrot, beet, celery, cucumber and green apple etc) on almost a daily basis, I eat fruit, I take FiberSmart caps which have Flax Fiber in them. I go to bed early. All of this has been helping. It may take awhile for it to kick in, but when it does you will see results. I don't think scrubbing your skin on a daily basis is a good idea. It will just irratate it and make it redder. I use a natural glycerin soap from the health food store. Hope this helps
First thanks for the responses.
Ok here goes some more info.
My diet is a high protein, low fat diet. I am not over or underweight, as I weight 186lb and I am 6.1" tall.
My diet had been kind of the same for the past 2 years that I've been living alone. I take protein shakes 2 or 3 times a day, I eat tuna from the can, turkey and cheese sandwich, and for lunch I have some frozen meal at work.
I guess I should drink more water than what I drink. I will start drinking more.
What else can I do? What about the vitamim B5 and the other treatments I wrote on the first post?
What kind of greens and fruits should I add to my diet?
Should I stop of the creams I've been using?
Thanks a lot
so there are definitely some changes you could make to your diet that could probably help you out a lot. There is a good book that spells out all the principles, and for more than just dealing with skin problems like acne. It gets right to the root of the problem. It's called "sick and tired? reclaim your inner terrain" by Dr. Robert O. Young. If you want to talk about your diet and some suggested changes that could probably help a lot (I was working with a guy on his acne just with diet changes and he had some great success) then feel free to email me directly ( email@example.com ). Catch you later, Mike
Just to encourage those who are doing the liver flush,I got rid of my Acne Rosecea after the second flush. About 6 1/2 years ago I did the parasite cleanse with the herbs and it worked great for getting rid of the rosecea, but eventually the rosecea would back. I had to stay on the maintanence program to keep it away. 6 months later I built a "zapper" which worked faster at clearing my face, but still the rosecea would eventually come back. After my first liver cleanse I noticed that the rosecea stayed away longer, so I did a second one and it seemed to be gone for good. That was about 6 yrs ago and havnt had a problem with rosecea since. Ive done about 8 flushes all together with the last 3 being done every 2 weeks for the last 5 weeks. I have another scheduled next weekend and I will keep going until I get rid of the rest of my allergies (my friends yellow labs don't bother me at all now !!!) and hopefully the dark patches on my face will lighten up even more. Best to all of you.
