12x Aquasulf Sulphur Ointment 30g Super ACNE BLACKHEAD SPOT CYST ZIT KILLER TUBE
Sulfur cream is a treatment used to treat and relieve the symptoms of various skin problems, including acne, seborrheic dermatitis, scabies, rosacea, eczema and some fungal infections. It inhibits the growth of bacteria, has anti-fungal properties and exfoliates the skin. Some creams require a prescription while others are available over the counter. Sulfur has a long history of medicinal use, and creams containing sulfur have been used for decades to treat regular acne as well as more serious inflammatory acne and acne lesions. Other active ingredients for treating the skin, like salicylic acid or sulfacetamide, are commonly added to sulfur creams, partly to counteract the strong, unpleasant odor of the sulfur itself.
When the cream is applied, the sulfur reacts with substances in the skin to produce hydrogen sulfide, an antibacterial agent that also has anti-inflammatory properties and causes the skin to shed dead cells. This combination of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and exfoliating properties is what makes the cream an effective treatment for so many skin conditions. One advantage of sulfur cream compared to some other antibacterial skin treatments is that it can be used for a prolonged period of time or even indefinitely.
