brigid: close up of my face a week or so post partum (Default)

I've been taking zinc supplements for almost a year now, thought I'd post the results.

When I take them regularly I see a gradual easing of symptoms. It's not a cure, at all, but things are better.

If I stop taking them for more than a few days my skin basically explodes and I remember why I started taking them in the first place.

So, for me, oral zinc supplements work... at least for now.

I started using Head And Shoulders shampoo (which has zinc in it) as a body wash, along with a scrub brush, on my problem areas, and I use a zinc ointment (it's a diaper ointment, ugh) on really bad/painful outbreaks. Both help, too.
