    This really works!!!!

    I was looking at this message board about a week ago and I found a post that said what this person had tried. It was washing your face with aveno acne face wash and putting destin diaper rash stuff on your face. I thought that when this person said that's what they did it was crazy and wouldn't work. I have tried everything and this is really working. I have only used it for a couple of days straight. But, the diaper rash really helps it gets rid of red spots over night.

    Just be careful of the Desiten, because it can clog your pores.

    I read at another board that desitin was helping a lot of people with their red marks also.I bought some tonight and now someone says it clogs pores.I wonder if it will be ok if I just use it on the red marks?

    You can use it on red marks, just be careful because it can clog your pores and make things worse

    What does being careful mean? Only using it once a day? Twice a day ? Or just leaning it on the red marks for a few hours then wiping it off? Could you please explain what careful means?

    Put it on the red marks, but try to avoid acne prone areas because Desiten is not non-comegenic, it will clog your pores. You can put it on as you please, just be sure to put it on areas that will not break out.

    don't have the desitin cream on during the day.
    wash your face before bed and put the desitin cream on when your face is dry. Don't put anything else on your face, only desitin cream, not even moisturizer.

    also, there are 2 kinds of desitin. one is the original ointment version, and the other is creamy and comes in a blue box. make sure you get the creamy kind.

    Don't laugh, but Preparation H is also good for reducing redness and swelling in those giant red cysts that some of us are unfortunate enough to get. (OK, go ahead, laugh! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wink.gif">

    I'm not laughing I also heard that it's good for puffiness under the eye, maybe it does work on cysts, but I haven't tried it.

    Re: This really works!!!!

    Hey Guys,
    This desitin sounds good. Where do you guys buy it from and how much does it cost? Is it meant for red spots or is it used for something else but it also works for spots?

    Thanks

    Desiten is everywhere, Walmart, Target, etc. It is with the baby items. I would only use it for red marks, I do not think putting it on active blemishes would be good, it might do more harm.
