I remember my mum putting this on my face during my teens (about 45 years ago) because I had very bad acne. After squeezing out each spot, some big one's too, she disinfected them and dusted my face with flowers of sulphur which I left on at night. It took about 3-4 weeks to get rid of all the spots, but it healed beautifully. Now I'm in my late fifties, have a combination of atopic and seborrheic dermatitis. I was given protopic (Tacrilimus ointment) by the dermatologist which proved effective, but they couldn't tell me what to use when I wasn't using this. I think I've most probably spent a small fortune trying to find a daily alternative, but most seem to make it worse or clog my pores, despite scrutinizing the ingredients first. Flowers of sulphur, a fine, yellow, and rather amazing product recently sprang to mind. I bought some of this sulphur powder online, though it is also available from garden suppliers and livestock feed suppliers. Several local chemists and health stores all looked at me in total bewilderment when I asked about it! It worked again on my dermatitis, only took a few days.
