Hi

 

I have been using the coral Kavi bar for 5 days now, two times a day and some times three times a day. It has helped the cystic acne a little bit but I get two or three white heads on my face, also when I wash my face it gets itchy for an hour. From using it so far I got a feeling that Coral helps the recovery process but it is not a cure, since I get new cysts on my face, maybe I need to wait more to see the result, I don't know! I have an oily skin, especially my nose and the cheeks close to my nose from my mouth to beneath my eyes , I get cysts mostly on my cheeks close to my nose, some times on the nose, back of my head when my hair is short and back and chest pretty rarely. I am white and I have a pretty thick hair, my face is always red and inflamed, when I am taking a shower I can see a huge contrast between my face and body. Anyways, I have tried many things so far (I am male 25) and am still looking for an answer, If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know what that is and also about the risks of using the products as well as Coral Kavi in long run.

 

Thank you very much, I hope this is the last time I am looking for an acne cure!

If you haven't already read it, have a look at the recently-published Coral KAVI FAQ. It provides essential information on proper usage and long-term skin care. It can be found here: http://www.kaviskin.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=595.

 

Using Coral KAVI three times per day is not recommended for anyone but those with the oiliest of skin. Itchiness and whiteheads sound like symptoms of dryness, and we would recommend you reduce your usage before you dry out your skin further. If you have combination skin (where some parts of your face are oily and others are normal or dry), consider lathering the oily parts only and then using the rinse to clean the remaining areas.

 

Are you using any other anti-acne products at this time? Are there any other treatments you may be applying to your face that could be contributing to the redness? You may wish to consult with your dermatologist to determine if the redness is purely acne-related or compounded by another skin condition (e.g., psoriasis). Our milder cleansers (Aqua KAVI, DermaWash, the KAVI Toner) provide effective adjunctive therapy for inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, and, of course, acne. Based on your physician's diagnosis and if warranted, you may wish to move to one of these cleansers in the near future to address multiple conditions. Salicylic acid masks can provide additional relief to certain inflammatory skin conditions (e.g., psoriasis, acne) and may also be recommended by your doctor.

 

If you are certain the redness you describe is strictly due to acne, then Coral KAVI (applied 1 to 2 times per day) is our recommended cleanser. Treatment may be augmented as needed with the KAVI Toner (applied once per evening after Coral KAVI or as the sole cleanser) and KAVI Salicylic Acid 8 (applied once per week).

 

When treating any skin condition with antiseborrheics, remember that dryness is not an acceptable side effect to treatment. Keep your skin hydrated and reduce treatment if your skin shows symptoms of dryness.
