    Default Questions about honey/coconut oil regiment

    how should your face feel after you remove the honey and apply the coconut?
    I use cool tap water to remove the honey from my face and scalp, then place a tiny amount of coconut oil on my face and scalp.
    After this my face still feels dry and tight and i have some burning sensations on face/scalp. Should i be using more coconut oil?

    Also i'm using wedderspoon organic raw active 16+ manuka honey but it is a liquid form. Is this ok?

    Thanks

    Hunter: what kind of symptoms were you experiencing prior to this treatment method? I have some irritating p&p that Auburn recommended this treatment for, so I am seeing how it has worked for others with similar symptoms. Hope that made sense, it's nearing the end of a long day.

    Stephen,

    I know what you mean but, for the record, I only recommend this treatment for seb derm.

    What I told you is that It would help with the inflammation and irritation. I'd give it a try. This is a seb derm treatment, as you know, but many forum members have found it helpful for other skin conditions.

    Cheers

    Sorry if I was unclear, Auburn. I wasn't my intention to say thy you thought this treatment would cure my p&p, and I only took it as a friendly suggestion.

    No problem at all, Stephen. As I said, I know what you meant. Regard my comment as merely a disclaimer.

    I;ve got a question about the different kinds of honey that exist.

    Wich one is most usefull in the honey treatment;
    - does the floral source make any difference?
    - Honeydew honey is that an option?
    - blended honey, polyfloral or monofloral honey?
    - Grade of quality? Clarity> water content?

    Alot of questions I know, but do you reckon these things play a part in the effectiveness of the treatment?

    interesting questions! i don't use honey this way myself (i don't have seb derm)
    but i believe i recall the learned Auburn specifically mentioning honeydew honey,
    so yeah, it is an option (if i'm right in thinking you mean "is it okay to use it in this treatment plan").
    i like honeydew honey and buckwheat honey for other purposes, and i know beekeepers in these parts
    are always saying those two types are extra-healthful, so it would be interesting to know
    whether they're any better than "average" raw honey for skin-treatment purposes.
