Just wanted to share this with everyone. A lot of people claim that they breakout when using Neosporin and other antibiotic ointments on open sores or when trying to heal an open blemish/ wound on their face. My housemate has absolutely perfect skin so she doesn't use Boudreaux's Butt Paste for acne but I have been borrowing it and it works so well at healing any sort of cut or sore on your face whether from acne or not!! I kept having this skin on my nose peel off after a pimple went away and it was all red like brand new skin but seriously went away in less than day when I used this stuff. The Butt Paste was orginally for diaper rash but it is used for almost every skin problem in the book now. If you go to their website, they tell you all the things it is used for. Oprah talked about it on her show last year. It has a great smell and rubs in nicely and doesn't look greasy like Neosporin. VERY cheap too...I think about $3.99 or so and you can get it at Wal Mart or Walgreens!
Many people may break out from Neosporin because they may be allergic to the sulfa drug in it. I used to get the rash and then I found out about the sulfa. I have known for many years that I was allergic to sulfa, but I didn't realized it was the neosporin until the Dr. told me about its ingredients after have some biopsies done. I was then told to use Bacitrasin ?sp.
Has anyone tried this for poison ivy yet. I have a very bad case and I just can't seem to get rid of the itch, and it is spreading even though I am treating it like crazy with just about everything that you can think of.
Wow! this is fantastic information. We use Butt Paste all the time on my 18 month old Grandson who gets the worst diaper rashes. One application of the old butt paste and it clears up - never even thought about using it on my face for acne. Great news! Can't wait to share this information with others in my family.

Let me know how it works for you guys! I'm still in love with it and it doesn't cause pimples where you apply it later on like Neosporin sometimes does in people. I actually couldn't find it at this Wal Mart by my school recently either but I guess I should try over by the baby clothes and stuff now since I didn't look there. For now, I'll continue using my friend's!
