Mineral Oil

Postby Mr. PC » Tue 15 May 2018 17:27

So I finally (kindof) took RRM's advice to put Vaseline on my skin. Well, I couldn't find any Vaseline, but I found baby-oil, which is mineral oil. Ingredients are

paraffinum liquidum
isopropyl palmitate
aloe extract
tocopheryl acetate
parfum

My specific issue is skin fungus in the sides of my nose.

The first day I put it on, it worked very very well, made my skin look way better everywhere I put it.

Second day, after waking up it seems the skin on my nose was getting worse (these white spots grow)... so I decided to put it on only one side. Later, the spot I put it on was worse.

What I read is that paraffinum liquidum, and the other ingredients, shouldn't feed fungus, so maybe I'm wrong? Maybe I should keep trying? Can anyone say what they know about these ingredients? There's a lot of fear-mongering on the internet because they're 'unnatural', so I'm looking for proper info.

Ok, my observation was mislead; the next day, not using mineral oil on either side, both sides became worse... so some other factor is at play that I'm missing.

Vaseline is very easy to get by.
Please try, it works like a charm
