Testimonial About Miraculous A&D Ointment
I've just seen several articles on your sight about A&D
Ointment. I found your
articles because I was looking up A&D Ointment on a search engine
trying to figure out what on earth is in this stuff that appears to be
curing whatever is wrong with my skin.
had hormonal acne/rosacea for the past couple of years but kept it in
control with at-home peels (40% glycolic).
Three months ago my cheeks and chin reddened and I had a huge
number of breakouts that wouldn't heal.
I bought some rosacea products but they didn't help.
The at-home peels I was using suddenly made the breakouts and
stinging much worse. Plus I can't get into to see a Dermatologist for
another month! On top of all
that, my breaking out skin was suddenly very dry.
Quite the odd and miserable mess.
tried A&D one night to see if it would help with the stinging and woke
up the next morning to see a huge improvement in my skin.
The dry, stinging feeling was gone, a good number of the breakouts
had begun to heal and with continued use, they are almost all gone.
I also started using Beta Hydroxy Pads which has helped stop new
breakouts. So now each morning
I use a thin film of A&D under my moisturizer and make-up.
Why this works I don't know. This
product contains mineral oil which has a rep for causing breakouts.
Anyway, I thought you'd like to hear another opinion on the
benefits of using A&D. -Carol V.
Response: Thanks for taking
the time to write-up your experience.
No one can quite figure out why it works so well (for some people)
— but it might be the Vitamin A (see A&D
Ointment — Add P to the List of What It’s Good For).
Since first hearing about its palliative effect on P lesions in 2001, I’ve heard several more anecdotal reports and am happy to add yours to that growing library. My Soriatane (acitretin) is an oral vitamin A derivative that costs $400 a month. Tazorac is a prescription topical based on Vitamin A. Here’s an alternative that costs a view dollars per tube OTC. And for some — like you — it works great. Thanks again. -Ed
