Re: Minocycline

Hello Chickens :wave:

I found this board accidently while looking for something else. So anyway I suffered from acne bad acne for about 20 years and finally found what was most effective for me. So thought I'd share it with ya.

OK when I was young the only thing that worked was low dose Oxytetracycline which they dont use any more cause it is really bad for candida. So bad that chicken farmers will not give it too their chooks as it causes instant candida. But they gave it to me for more than 5 years. My acne is much better due to something new I found but my health has been permanently wreaked and I can hardly eat anything. The only treatment that helps my new symptoms is anitfungals but never cures me. So if I were you I would try anything other than antibiotics.

Acne can sometimes be caused by staph bacteria. I was listening to a doctor from Waikato hospital on the radio one day saying that Manuka Honey killed resistant staph and that they were using it for leg ulcers that wouldnt heal in the elderly.

So I decided to make up a face wash.

Get some certified Manuka Honey of a decent strenght. Take a table spoonfull and thin it with a few drops of water. It thins with very little water added. Then add cornflour approximately 1 tablespoon (maize flour will do) and mix to an easily workable consistancy.

Now wash your face twice daily with this mixture. The cornflour in the mix removes oil from the skin.

When washing your face you should first wrap your hair in a towel to keep the honey out of your hair. Make sure all your hair is off your face wrapped in the towel. Then wet your face before applying the honey wash. It will be easier to work over your skin this way. Massage the misture around your face. Then rinse off. Your skin will feel lovely and clean.

Antibiotics used to take 6 months to clear my skin and if I stoped taking them the acne would come back pretty quick.
This wash took 2 weeks of using twice daily to clear my skin. You can leave it on sometimes as a mask which will help but its not necessary.

Benoxyl lotion never did anthing for me. Theis was the only topical treatment used over 20 years that actually worked.

I also read just recently that in acne sufferers the more milk acne sufferers drank the worse acne they had. Well that one set off some alarms. I was a very big milk drinker and still am. Cows milk contains a hormone called IGF1 said to encourages acne.

I hope this might help you get rid of that acne without the risk of taking antibiotics which for me were not nearly as effective as this treatment.
This is gratis too. Im not charging you. ;)

The mediacal profession have nothing to gain by you using this treatment ( i.e. its not a perscription only med meaning you dont need an appointment to get it) so I wouldnt expect them to recomend it.

If you are allergic to bees or honey then better not try it.
