Re: 100% tea tree oil?

Yes I have it and fortunately, I havent had any breakouts for some time now. But last time I had a big one I just dabbed it on and it dries up within a day or two. My skin never got red though. Maybe you could dilute it so its not so potent

Tea tree oil comes from Australias Tea Tree...it is an extremely potent astringent...if it is making you red, you should do as above, dilute it. It works very well on cold sores also.
