I to use ibuprofen when i am desperate to speed up the healing of an inflamed spot,for example as soon as i feel an inflamed spot making it,s way to the surface of the skin i apply a hot water compress soaked in lavender oil to the area for around 20 minutes then apply BP 10% followed by a dab of Hydrocortisone and 2 Ibuprofen before bed,usually i notice alot of improvement the following morning.
I usually continue the Ibuprofen treatment until the inflamation totally dissapears,usually that,s around 2/3 days for me.
I always try to take Ibuprofen on a full stomach as this can reduce the side effects,I wouldn,t reccomend taking this on a permanent basis unless your doctor says so,I did read an article in a magazine written by a doctor who said"Anti inflammotry drugs can play a part in the treatment of acne"obviousley he means for inflamed spots and not blackhead type acne.
