I bought this soap to help with my holistic treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa. At first I must say I was a little skeptical, but after reading the reviews on here (esp. the one's from others with HS) I am thrilled that I took a chance with this product! It's been a few months now and I must say that my flare ups have decreased and become slightly less painful with the use of this soap daily. I used to get horrible itching in my armpits but now that has gone away completely. This soap keeps my pits hydrated and soft without drying them out too much. Due to my HS, I have refrained from using deodorant, so I am very pleased with it's deodorizing capabilities. This soap keeps me smelling fresh all day long even with sweating. I have even began noticing my old scars and dark discoloration on my armpits clearing up as well. I will definitely continue to use this faithfully and recommend to all with my skin condition.
I have severe Hidradenitis suppurativa and have for most of my life...I have literally tried EVERYTHING. Every single prescription, topical, body wash, antiseptic, etc (including hibiclense, emuaid, almond oil)... Needless to say nothing did much. Then I found this soap. I've just started using it and I can't believe the deoderant qualities of this! Bad odors from bumps are officially gone, and I feel so much cleaner after I shower. I feel like my active areas are less painful and slowly feeling better. Will most definitely be reordering!
I have Hidradenitis Suppurativa and take medication for it. The medication helps, but not 100%. This soap is amazing at helping keep the condition managable. If you have this condition, I can't recommend this soap enough!
** Update! I am now almost 3 months in on using this soap. Im going to be 100% honets because HS is no joke. I have relapsed with my cysts with this soap. It is by no means a solution. You know we can hope here lol. I will say this, it helped me bounce back from the relapse/breakout way faster than on my own. The flair ups I had while using the soap has been a little bit bigger than not. Meaning the flair up cysts where bigger using the soap but the flair ups are much less frequent. I am mean hey, for walking in tremendous pain all the time, ill take it. It works much much better if you let the soap lather up in the shower and then sit on your problem areas for about 60 seconds. I know with me after that first 60 seconds I start to feel a burn and immediately wash of fear of making everything worse. It works but its not a means to an end and the break outs are worse with the soap but much less frequent and clear up faster. We can't win with this skin disease but we wont stop fighting either. Happy Holidays everyone
If you have HS listen up. HS is super painful and hard to manage. Thr smell is awful but its magic. I dont say that lightly either. Ive tried almost everything under the sun to keep my HS manageable. EMUAID worked ok for a month till I built up immunity and for $60 a jar its expensive too. Ive been using this soap for 5 days now and ive had more progress with this soap in days than ive had with anything ive tried ever. Including Emuaid. Now I hope I dont build up immunity like I have with every other product but if your in pain and its become unmanageable, you need this in your life!!! The smell means nothing when you can walk without pain or use your arms without pain too! Hs sucks but this helps!! I refuse to get mine lanced they leave huge scars and dents. This is the best stuff I've tried for my HS
I'm foregoing accutane because of the marked results from ONE week of twice daily use of this carbolic soap. It is remarkable. I have acne and mild hidradenitis suppurativa and it has helped both. Anyone with HS knows there's no "cure", however, the soap flattens any inflammation, and fast. I was able to scratch off blackheads on my face on my skins surface, have never used a product like this. So simple, so cheap. Incredible. Also, sometimes I don't really need to use deodorant. BUY MOISTURIZER though!
I ordered for my HS and have only been using it for about 1 week and already am satisfied with its additional effect alongside my elimination diet. It soothes it after a warm/hot shower every night. There is a strong distinct smell that lingers in the upstairs of my apt. It reminds me of the cough syrup smell we had to take when I was a kid. But I dnt mind it because it honestly is similar to me as to walking around smelling of Vick’s at night. I have also noticed since I’d had to barely wear deodorant that unless I’m just out and about on a hot day. Just a quick run even won’t make my under arms smell as easily as it used to
I have a really sensitive nose, so I'm having a hard time getting past the scent. I found a review for this saying that it worked great for acne and rosacea prone skin, and I'm desperate! It didn't say that it smelled so...bad! And despite being very disciplined, and using it while holding my breath, I've seen very little change. I'll stick with the sulfur cream. That stinks, too, but at least I see results, and it doesn't turn my shower orange. But maybe it works differently for everyone!
This stuff STINKS. Bad. When I walk into my bathroom, I can smell it permeating the air. So, if you get it, plan to put it in a container in between use. I got it to use for armpit odor. It may help a slight bit but not drastically. Probably won't reorder.
I bought four soaps because of the reviews. At first I was skeptical about the soap. I could smell it with just holding the package. I opened the package and the soaps come in a paper bag with no wrapper just a bar code sticker . So I decided to try the soap even tho the smell was strong. Yes I like the soap how it feels and I eventually got used to the smell. It helps me with my pimples. I use it for my face and body. I like it Ill end up buying more.
