I have fungal acne and this is a few tips on how to get rid of it. I using IUNIK propolis extract and all the fungal acne has gone in about 5-7 days. For moisturizer, i use Cerave (it’s fungal acne product) .

I am currently undergoing treatment (at home) for the pesky little fungal bumps on my forehead aka rocky-road of a nuisance and prime source of irritation – and have to say that Nizoral shampoo is a little miracle worker. If you haven’t tried it already, apply the shampoo (as suggested above) on forehead (or anywhere else on face -or body) and wear it like a mask, letting it dry. PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF TWO THINGS WHEN USING NIZORAL – Now if you did not know this, in the US – Nizoral shampoo’s active ingredient “ketoconazole” only comes in 1% in shampoo. Whereas in Canada, Europe, Australia and other parts of the world where this product is sold, the shampoo comes in pink form (not the US blue form) and has the active ingredient at 2%. THIS MEANS – if you are applying the NON-US Nizoral shampoo with 2% of the active ingredient “ketoconazole”, be careful not to severely over-dry your skin. Most folks using the 2% version would suggest to not leave the shampoo on affected area for more than 10-15 min. If using the US version with 1% of active ingredient, (which is what I have access too and currently use) you can extend the wear time up to 20-30 minutes since the concentration of active ingredient is less. BUT you know your skin better, so please be careful. What works for one person may affect another quite differently. All I can say, is that my face wasn’t responding to ANYTHING, and now the bumps are reducing and my forehead is slowly healing. Each day I have less and less bumps to deal with. DIET is also key. Lay-off carbs (pasta, rice, sweets, and sweet drinks, alcohol and massive amount of coffee)…. Yeast is triggered frequently by lack of a better balanced diet + dash of stress + massive wear of make-up = rocky road forehead. Try to keep it somewhat natural and lay-off the foundation and creams as they can be triggers… I am on week 1, and I am seeing awesome results, your forehead will say “thank-you”!

Sadly only the oat cream is fungal acne safe ! Hoping for more FA safe Krave products in the future :)

Does iunik propolis serum can get rid of fungal acne??

I wanted to know if I can use products which aren’t fungal acne safe after these bumps disappear but continue with the treatment once every week or 2 times a week. Will it be enough not to trigger the fungal acne again?

I am so sad that none of the products from KRAVE can be used if you have fungle acne. If you are worked about a product containing ingredientes that are good or bad check out sezia.com (like malassezia). It has a data bank to back check. Hope this helps someone.
