Fungal Acne: Disclaimer




Hi! I've been receiving emails ever since I shared my "fungal acne" experience. I've posted what I found through research and what has worked for me. I can't explain the science side of it, offer other product recommendations outside of my posts, or help you decide if your skin problems are fungal. 

I'm not a dermatologist or qualified to be giving out advice.

Edit: 9/16/2020
I’m not going to respond to these emails anymore. Thanks for understanding


Please Note:


People can't judge online whether your skin problems are fungal or not. That's up to you by elimination and treatment or through a dermatologist.

Fungal acne isn't acne and will not respond to regular acne treatments. If you suspect you may have it then you need to look at the products you're using and see whether the ingredients are safe. Products like skincare, sunscreen, makeup, facial wipes, shampoo, conditioner, and other hair products.

Use only safe products and your skin should improve once there's nothing to feed the yeast. The bumps usually form clusters, can be itchy, and can worsen by not washing your sweat off after exercise or humid days.

I recommend using one of these products as a mask. 
The shampoos can be used as a facial cleanser and body wash.

1. Head & Shoulders (Pyrithione zinc 1%)
2. Selsun Blue (Selenium Sulfide 1% )
3. Nizoral (Ketoconazole 1%)
4. Dr. Eddie's Happy Cappy (Pyrithione zinc 0.95%)
4. De La Cruz Sulfur. (Sulfur 10%)

Some of these are really harsh if you leave it on too long. Do 1-2 times a week at 5 minutes and work your way up slowly. Drying your skin out too much can cause damage to your skin's barrier and have the fungal acne get worse. Make sure to cleanse, wet the face afterward, and apply moisturizer(s) then seal with vaseline. 

Please do your own research. It's all trial and error :)
