Stopping Fungal Acne with Well+Good
Well + Good looked at “The 8 Best Products Derms Use to Stop Fungal Acne in Its Tracks” and asked Dr. Green about how to stop this type of Acne.
She noted that Fungal Acne “responds much differently than whiteheads and blackheads to traditional OTC acne-fighting skincare ingredients, like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid,” and that “these ingredients may actually worsen fungal acne instead of helping to resolve it. Instead, patients should stick to anti-fungal ingredients like ketoconazole (a common ingredient in dandruff shampoos), sulfur, and zinc pyrithione.”
