    Default Die off period with white vinegar method and nizoral

    Hi guys,

    Iíve recently started using the white vinegar method after seeing it on here. Been doing it for about two weeks and itís been really good at evening out the texture. I took a break for a day or two after a VBeam treatment for rosacea last week and then gradually increased the ratio plus time it was on my face.

    It doesnít seem to be doing a lot for the redness so Iím assuming that itís essentially just exfoliating the biofilm off and not actually killing the seb derm.

    I used a bit of nizoral (ketoconazole 2%) last night afterwards to start to kill the seb derm and Iíve woke up this morning noticing the areas are more inflamed than usually.

    Is it normal for the nizoral to have an effect this quickly and its in the ďdie offĒ phase where it gets worse because itís killing it before it gets better?

    Or alternatively have I just overdone it and itís flared up the area?

    Many thanks

    How are you diluting the vinegar ratio wise?
    1:4 I find a good range for my skin, but you may have to trial and error to see what suits you.
    Max 60 seconds on your face. Wash off with cold water.

    As for the Nizoral, is it the shampoo you are putting on? If so stop immediately.

    I've read on here, other forums, Reddit etc people saying to wash your face with shampoo. It's a terrible idea, it's been designed for your scalp, it's too harsh for thinner skin on your face.

    Anyone that gives that advice needs banning from that platform imo
