      This summer time, I have noticed that more skin problems are getting complicated.

      I was at home and complaining to my sister about my back pimples specifically on my shoulders and lower back. She then suggested using Dr. Kaufmann’s soap and she even accompanied me in buying it. It is actually a Keratolytic/Antiacne Scabicide and Pedicullicide type of soap. With this kind of


      name, I have the impression that it is effective because the keratolytic pimple gel I tried before worked fine.

      On my first used of that product, the first thing that I have noticed is the pungent smell. It is really strong and a little bit annoying to my nose. Even so, I tried it on my skin and gently rub it on my back ...


      • pimples or backne. I am really worried how I would smell after that shower. The whole bathroom seems to be suffocating because of that smell. It has no sweet scent at all.

        I rinsed myself for so long to ensure that the smell of the soap has been rinsed off as well. Even though I do not like its smell, I keep using it

        for weeks and suddenly noticed that it is drying up my pimples on my back. It is keeping my skin healthy and now preventing acne, rough and oily skin and pimples. Since I hate the smell up to this time, I just use this soap on my back area. For my neck, legs and other parts of the body, I am using another beauty soap.

    NO, it can’t remove chicken pox scar. You need to use a good anti stretch cream for this.

    Galega says :

    You can use Kaufman’s Soap once your chickenpox is over which should last for around one week.

    How about tinea versicolor?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Yes, tinea Versicolor can be treated with sulfur soap. Actually, 10 % sulfur soap is usually prescribed (along with some anti fungal ointment) in the treatment of Tinea versicolor.

    That said, I would like to advise you to let a dermatologist prescribe you suitable medicines. Tinea Versicolor can be treated in a very short span of time, if suitable medicines are used. I don’t think it proper to use over the counter medicine/soap for this purpose.

    it really helps to cure acne dark spots?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Yes, it is very much helpful in the treatment of acne.

    On a side note, you might have heard of some waterfall treating acne and other skin problems. Do you know why? It is because of the sulfur content in the water there. In my home district, there is similar waterfall.

    The crux of the matter is the curable nature of sulfur when it comes to the treatment of acne and many other skin problems.

    You can use this soap for acne.

    However, it is unlikely to treat dark spots.

    It is ok to use as hair soap? Im experiencing acne on my head

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Yes, you can also apply it on hair. It should give you some relief. In fact, there are also sulfur shampoo in the market, which is, obviously, intended to be applied on hair and scalp.

    can sulfur zinc oxide soap can treat a Tinea inguinalis or jock itch in groin area?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    There are many clinical trials which have conclusively proved that tinea Versicolor can be treated with sulfur soap. Actually, 10 % sulfur soap is usually prescribed (along with some anti fungal ointment) in the treatment of Tinea versicolor.

    Having said that, I would like to advise you to let a dermatologist prescribe you suitable medicines. Tinea Versicolor can be treated in a very short span of time, if suitable medicines are used. I don t think it proper to use over the counter medicine/soap for this purpose.

    can this soap be used in treating prickly heat skin problems on my back? when scrubbing my back. how many minutes should it be applied?

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Dr. Kaufmann’s Sulfur Soap may not be sufficient to solve this problem of prickly heat. It can give relief from scratching. However, for complete relief you need to use some other suitable product.

    does this soap cure ringworms?

    ReviewStream.com
    John says :

    No, it’s not intended to treat ringworms.

    ReviewStream.com
    Galega says :

    Soaps with 10% sulfur, like Dr. Kaufmann’s Soap, are also very useful in treating ringworm infections and can be used for treating Tinea Flava and Versicolor, Jock Itch and Athlete s Foot etc.
