I have been told by a dermatologist about 10 years ago that I had seborrheic dermatitis/adult acne and I was given tetracycline and dermatop and a special moistering lotion and was told to use cetaphil soap because its soppose to be mild. July of this year I went to my doctor and got a script for doxysysline and metro gel for rosacea I used it for two weeks and had no results so I quit using it.

I came across this site when my dog had a uti and read about ACV and tea tree oil. So I gave it a try I used tea tree oil for 3 or 4 days, it burned but I just fanned my face for about 10 minutes. I did this twice a day morning and night then my skin started to peel, it was thick and scaly so then I started using organic ACV and water 50/50 and I have now been doing this for about the last 4/5 days and my face is 80 to 90% better I don't have to wear make-up to cover it up although my skin still feels a bit tight and dry I will continue with the ACV. I also take ACV in a glass with juice, about one tablespoon a day. Thanks for all of everyones imput as it has helped me.

i read the Remedies on using raw apple cider vinegar for acne. I already had some of the acv in the fridge so I tried it as well as my daughter and within 24 hours they were 40% better, 48 hours 60% better.. Now they are flat with just a pink cast. I figured in about 1 or 2 days They will be gone. This really works. Do not waste your money on expensive things on tv or the drug store. For under 5.00 the ACV does the trick.. Yes you will go to bed smelling like a pickle, but its worth it!

I have been using apple cider vinegar for my acne for 2weeks as of yesterday. I didnt have terrible acne but enough to make me feel insecure in public. I am very vain and will not go pick up my son from school without makeup. I have to say that within 3 days my acne had cleared up nicely. It still is not CLEAR but, i think im getting there.I does take time,as does anything else.I drink 2 tablespoons 2x a day straight.Every other night i use it as a toner.i hope anyone with acne at least will try it.

Question - My son 18yrs. has had an acne problem for years now, face and body. Have seen some results with ACV over the past 30-40 days. Seems to be at a standstill with further results. Believe he has Candida. Will start him on the H2O2 regimen. Wondered; can or should he take other things to clear up the Candida like Caprylic acid, Oil of Oregeno, Garlic. Naturally because of his age he is busy and not always wanting to cooperate. Plus he is skeptical after many meds over the years. Can he take more than one of these remedies? What would be the best/simplest for him to get rid of his acne? Sure would appreciate what you think.
