Hi everyone! I've been doing a lot of research online on how to heal open wounds faster and to prevent or minimize scarring caused by my picking. I have two really big open lesions on my face (one on my chin and the other on my forehead). I stumbled across a site created by a sufferer of dermatillomania and he talked about how calomine lotion really helped in the healing and deminishing of his wounds and scars from years of picking at his skin. I figured it was worth a try and I went out and purchased a bottle for $1.44 USD ( at a price like that how could I not try it???) Well this is only my second day and my wounds have deminished significantly and are already healing twice as fast as they used to. Also, since I started using this as a mask, I have not yet experienced any new breakouts. I bought the Humco brand of calomine lotion because it had fewer ingredients than other name brand options. This is the stuff we used as kids when we suffered from chicken pox to help them heal faster and to calm itching. I don't know about you, but whenever one of my wounds is scabbed over and dry it becomes really itchy and sometimes cracks, prolonging the healing time. Calomine lotion prevents that and it stops any wound seeping we experience when the wounds are fresh. After I wash it off using my cetaphil antibacterial gentle cleansing bar, I apply a thick layer of Vaseline intensive rescue repairing moisture body lotion to my face and the results I've seen are incredible. I was worried at first that the moisturizer would clog my pores but it hasn't and I've been using it as a repairing moisturizing mask for about 3 weeks now. The cleanser, calomine lotion and body lotion I listed are all very inexpensive and you can purchase all 3 for around $15.00 USD. PS - I've been using the calomine lotion as a night mask and I sleep with it on and then I wash it off in the morning. I've chosen to do this so that I can heal the fresh wounds on my face and to lighten hyperpigmentation and scarring everywhere else on my face from previous wounds and acne lesions. I hope this helps someone out there as much as it's helped me thus far. Please keep me updated if you should choose to try this... I'm anxious to hear if anyone else experiences the same amazing results I have.
