    Default reaction to coconut oil

    In the middle of the raw honey/coconut oil treatment and last night was the first application of coconut oil however don't think my skin liked it much,was a bit tingly. This morning cleansed face and applied coconut oil but had the same reaction,stuck with it for a few hours but eventually had to remove due to constant tingling,cleansed face and applied honey and skin settled down again.Has anyone had adverse reaction to coconut oil.

    Did you do a spot-test before applying to the whole face?

    Are following the instructions or doing your own thing?

    Did you apply the oil good and thick or sparingly?

    If you apply the oil to your neck, chest or arms, do you get the same reaction?

    OK. Is this tingling all over your face or just on the seb derm areas?

    I'd try applying to a couple of areas where there's no seb derm at all, just a touch of oil. Maybe along the jaw line, just one side and see what happens. If it doesn't itch, a while later or next day I'd apply to just one seb derm area, say, the area between your eyebrows.

    If it itches only on that area maybe it's just the seb derm reacting to the oil and, if that's the case, it should itch less as you keep treating it.

    You are welcome! Keeping fingers and toes crossed... The oil is such a great skin conditioner, you know. I really hope you can benefit from it. Take care.
