I have never posted anything online, but I swore to myself that I would when I found something that cured my PD. This condition seriously affected my self-esteem and I spend countless hours obsessing about it and trying to find a cure on internet. I tried SO many things … ACV, grapefruit seed extract, calendula cream, olive oil and powdered sugar, coconut oil, aloe vera, zinc oxide cream, spring water, hemp oil, SLS free products, gentle soap/no soap, oregano oil, supplementation (I won't even begin to enumerate...), dairy free diet, and the list goes on. I had been searching for a cure for over two years when I went on a one week vacation in the Caribbean. After two hours of bathing in the ocean, my PD had drastically improved. I could not believe it. About two days later, it was completely gone! I thought it was done and over with, but one day after returning home, it came back.

I tried to bathe in a Dead Sea salt bath, then an Epsom salt bath, but it did absolutely nothing. I tried to think of other things in the water that could have helped my condition. It was at that moment that I decided to buy powdered seaweed (fucus to be exact).

I applied a tick mixture of the seaweed and water on my PD every night before going to bed (and left it there all night). It improved every day until eventually, the results were astonishing. Since two months, I have been clear, as long as I keep up with the treatment. Whenever I see spots coming back I simply apply seaweed again and in 2-3 days they disappear. There is only a tiny bit of redness next to my nose remaining.... This has truly been a real savior for me... give it a try, it's so worth it! Now, I am only left with my cystic acne to battle with... yeah.
