Treat itchy flaky facial skin with a simple ingredient.
A brief guide to learning new things.
Treating dry, itchy, flaky, red skin can be very painful especially when the healing options begin to decline. There are different causes to such conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, even probably caused by demodex mites.The problem is that treatments can get expensive over time and only offer benefit for a certain amount of time in some cases. Meanwhile one has to struggle with the effects of problematic skin.
Milk of Magnesia also known as magnesium hydroxide may help relieve problems associated with red, dry, itchy facial skin and possibly a scaly itchy scalp associated with seborrheic dermatitis. The milk helps remove problem causing bacteria to enhance the healing process. It can be put on throughout problematic areas of the face carefully as you shower and then rinsed off after a few minutes. For deeper results it can be left over night only on the face and washed away the next day. On the scalp during the shower process it can be put on for a few moments and then rinsed away, the only drawback is that it may be harsh on the hair which is why it is probably better to use maybe twice a week max. On the face it could be used according to how the healing evolves. It is also important to be careful, not to use too much because it may over dry or create a thick sticky residue on the face, and also avoiding the eye area. People with red rings on the sides of the nose caused by possible demodex mites or rosacea could benefit from using milk of magnesia. To be safe first, try it on a small area and observe to ensure there isn't any type of unwanted reaction that may be uncomfortable. If you don't feel comfortable with it, stop its use.
Permanent healing hasn't been proven yet, but it may be a good alternative to calm down the symptoms. If not sure, seek medical help before use.
