Thank you both for writing your success stories; I feel more hopeful as I have been struggling with PD for a few months and nothing is working. The only thing left the M.D's say is oral antibiotics which I always have bad reactions on. I have taken Colloidol silver internally and applied colloidal silver gel to my outbreak areas which are eyes, nose and mouth and it seemed to burn and make things worse. I have also tried all the ointments and creams prescribed. I think mine started from using a cortisone cream on my GP's recommendation.
The Dermatologist told me to use one of a list of "intolerant skin" creams and have been using La Roche Posey, cleaner and moisturizer only and they do not seem to help at all.
I shall try the zinc and using which hazel and not sure I can go without moisturizer as I live in a northern climate and it is winter and cold and very dry and my skin cries for moisture.
