I've had KP since I was a kid and am finally getting handle on it in my 30s. My current routine is glycolic lotion twice a day, creams on the affected areas 3-4 times a day, and then physical exfoliation and using zinc or sulfur soap a couple times a week to keep the bumps at bay. But since skincare is YMMV, here's the exhaustive list of almost two decades of treatment, in case some of these other things will work for you!

100% of the items can be purchased via Amazon in the US - it's pretty much the only way I shop.

Beginner Level

If your KP has just appeared, focus on physical+chemical exfoliation and moisturizing. Look for lotions with the following ingredients:

Check out the beards subreddit.

I've had a beard for about a couple years now. Here's my advice to any Muslim who just started:

General Islaamic Tips

  • Remember Allaah is rewarding you for doing so. If people are making fun of you, Allaah will reward you for your patience.
  • Get ready for Muslims to tell you to shave it off, or "just cut it from the sides a little bit."
  • Get ready to be called "Shaykh."
  • Get ready for everyone to think you're fluent in Arabic. And if you're not, get ready for them to turn into animals and get angry you're growing a beard but don't know Arabic.
  • Remember that the pagans and idol worshipers grow their mustaches and shave their beards. You're countering them in their movement, expressing to them and to Allaah your disapproval for their Shirk and their people and Allaah loves that.
  • Memorize the proofs for growing the beard. Because Muslims debate you and get angry and say it's not required.
  • Remember that what is above the eyes and below the chin is permissible to trim.

    Grooming Tips
  • When sleeping on your side, remember to have your beard touching the pillow in a way that when you wake up, it doesn't mess it up.
  • Use beard oil. It keeps it shiny and good looking, and a tiny bit straighter. This is a good one.
  • If you want more straight hair, use beard balm. This is a good one.
  • Use scissors to cut the extra long hairs. Extra long hairs that grow separate from the other hairs make the beard look messy. If you keep those trimmed, your beard will look beautiful. Trimming the beard after a fist length is part of the Sunnah of the companions.
  • Remember to look at your beard from the side too when grooming on the morning.
  • Remember to Shampoo it just like you shampoo your normal hair.
  • I don't remember the source, but I read that what is below the jaw line and above the eyes is permissible to cut (since it's not part of the beard).

    Good Online Tools
  • /r/beards for emotional support.
  • Good YouTube channels:
  • The Beard Baron
  • Beard Brand
  • Al-Albaanee's beard debate.

    Other Tips
  • If food bits falls into your beard, simple patting or hitting on the beard takes them out.
  • Get ready for compliments. "Nice beard, bro!"

    May Allaah make the beard easy for you and give you a great experience!

My big toenail got totally ruined by fungus because I left it untreated for 2+ years. Tbh I didn't know what it was and thought it'd go away on its own. 

A year ago, during my trip to Bali, I was in the water so much that half of my toenail actually fell off! This is when I finally started doing research and treating it. I went through a 9 month phase where I slacked off because I was traveling a lot, which is why you see it get much worse. But about 3 months ago I decided I've had enough and took this to the next level. I've been extremely proactive in my routine and am finally seeing results!!! It's a lot of work but it's really encouraging to see improvements.

Here's how I'm doing it:

  • Keep it filed down using this electric nail drill (be really careful not to get carried away & use the slowest setting. stop if you feel ANY pain)
  • Keep it clean & trimmed I make sure the sides of my nail/cuticle are free of debri and keep my nails short using these tools
  • Make sure to disinfect all tools & surfaces using alcohol or hand sanitizer & soap
  • Brush your toe 2-3 times a day with a soft tip toothbrush and tea tree oil body wash (especially in morning and before going to bed)
  • Apply Tea tree oil & Coconut oil after brushing
    • Why: Several studies have shown that tea tree oil has antifungal properties. (source) Coconut oil also has antifungal properties and also smoothes out your skin & nail, which is key cuz tea tree oil makes it really dry and rough
    • How: You can do it by hand, but to make it easier I bought this mini refillable perfume spray bottle, filled it up with tea tree oil & coconut oil 50/50. So all I gotta do is spray it on my toe after I brush and dry
  • Apply Vicks vaporub I apply this along with the tea tree oil & coconut oil once a day or so
  • Apply Urea Cream at night in addition to the tea tree oil & coconut oil
    • Numerous studies have shown combination therapy of urea and an antifungal agent to be an effective treatment for onychomycosis. Urea functions to soften the nail plate, which can enhance the passage of antifungal medications to the underlying nail bed.
  • Footsoaks I've done footsoaks 2-3 times a week for 30 min each. Recently I've been combining 2 part warm water, 1 part vinegar (distilled white or ACV), and like 5 tbsp baking soda. Sometimes I only do baking soda. Sometimes I add a few drops of tea tree oil. Sometimes I soak just with bleach & water. But if you do the bleach & water, make sure you use regular bleach (not the splashless kind). Anyways as you can tell, I kinda mix it up when it comes to footsoaks
    • In the lab, plain old sodium bicarbonate limited growth of the most common types of fungi that cause skin and nail infections. (source)
    • Vinegar can protect against bacteria, fungi, and other harmful microbes, so putting it into a foot soak could have potential benefits for the feet. source
  • Antifungal foot powder I use this foot powder anytime I wear shoes to keep it as dry as possible
  • Try to stay bare feet as much as possible
  • Put toe in sunlight as much as you can fungus hates the sun
  • Clean socks I change into fresh clean socks constantly
  • Handwash & sanitize socks I handwash all of my socks by soaking them in this collapsible dish tub with super hot water, laundry detergent, and a few drops of dettol, which is this super concentrated antiseptic liquid that kills the fungus
  • Spray on sanitizer If I'm ever lazy, I carry this hand sanitizer spray to spray my toenail before going to bed. I also spray this in my shoes & flip flops at night. I also use this to spray down my nail filer, sink, hands, etc. to not spread fungus.

I misspelled it, "ben wa balls" sorry. And the link is safe for work, just two balls in a box. They're meant for strengthening your hands, I think. As for the ball pit idea, I'd never thought of it like that, but yeah, basically. :)

I originally got the balls because I was worried that with all the rough sex and large insertions I'd end up suffering from prolapse (don't look it up at work- but it's something ALL women need to worry about, way too many end up with this problem from not exercising enough). We then discovered that just two are awesome for sex.

We thought we'd invented something amazing, but a quick google search told us that Indians have been fucking with ben wa balls for centuries. If you want to try inserting anything along side your penis, this would be my #1 suggestion. Though if she's tight go for a smaller size than the ones I linked to, they are about 1in diameter each. If she wears them during the day and plays with them, it will help her muscles stay fit. They usually come in sizes significantly smaller than that in sex shops.

I completely understand your sentiment about vaginal and intimacy. As for the intimacy, there are times when we have some non intimate fucking (like doggy style- it's less cuddly) , but we have particular positions which I at least find very intimate. We also spend a lot of time cuddling and kissing throughout the day. I'm a feedee, so when he cooks for me or hand feeds me, that's another form of intense intimacy for me... I feel like a freak admitting to that last part because I suspect most people don't experience this.

I'm completely aware that if I stop and take a break from sex, then my body will more or less return to normal, but I really enjoy what I'm doing (and apparently I'm not too weird because we've got some pretty good reactions from the fisting/large insertion community). My current goal is for my vagina to permanently sag open, and my husband is equally into the idea. :)

One, I'd get a scale and a measuring tape. You can get one easily at an art or craft supply store. You'll want to be measuring yourself at the beginning of this journey! This is my scale and it works fantastically for the price, and this is a fine tape measure.

Also, try calorie counting for as long as you can stand it. It is good in the beginning to understand just how much you are taking in and where those calories are coming from. It gets tedious after a few weeks or months but by that time you hopefully know what foods are bad, what foods are good, and what good portions are. You'll get a sense for how much you should eat.

Also do NOT beat yourself up for slipping up and eating too much. If you eat too much EVERY day, it's bad. If you eat too much once at a party, it's OK, get up, get back on track. Many people give up because they experience a minor slip-up and then believe they'll never be able to lose weight. You just have to stomp through those barriers and keep going. You'll be healthier and happier for it!

Also I recommend you r/fitness. You'll look like an AWESOME skinny-ass mofo if you gain some muscle during your weight loss!

Good luck!

u/napjerks · 1 pointr/NailFungus

Sorry to hear about that. Did you notice it helped at all? If you were on it less than a week then it was probably hard to tell.

Did they suggest lowering the dosage? You could lower to half a pill to see if the dizziness went away or at least got better enough you could still take it.

There are at least one or two other pills available that might not have the same side effect. Sulphur compounds can be antifungal but hard on the stomach. It can be worth going back and discussing options with them. Try a different doctor if the first one wasn’t very communicative. If it was a general doctor you could try to see a dermatologist instead.

For now use one of the over-the-counter creams until you can see someone. Anything with turbinafine for two weeks and see if the skin on your hands feels better. If no change switch to tolnaftate or clotrimazol. These are the active ingredient names, not brand names in case it helps.

I normally don't recommend soaking, but in this case since you really want some results, I'd recommend soaking just your fingertips in a mix of 50/50 bleach and water. Don't put your whole hand in it because it will over-dry the skin. Just tip the infected nails, not your pinky for example, because it looks good. Just the fingernails in a cup with the bleach/water for a minute, no longer. Then use the OTC cream like a moisturize and go about your day. Once a day only for a month and see if you notice any improvement. You can use a small bowl and only need to add enough to cover the nails. Throw it out each time, aka don’t re-use it. Let your doctor know you're doing this and stop if they tell you to depending on any prescriptions they give you.

Is Terrasil soap available where you live? It might be worth a try in addition to the OTC cream.

But start with the bleach soak and the OTC cream to see if it helps first since these items are cheap and easy to find.

u/kaisawheel · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Seconded, but you don't really need to see a doctor. Get a Lamisil anti fungal. I find that the Continuous Spray kind works best, but the creams are good too as long s you can reach all of your spots with it, but I still think that the spray works best.

I would not use the powder sprays, they are annoying, smelly and cover poorly.

The active ingredient in Lamisil has proven much more effective for me personally than that in Lotrimin, but both do work, Lotrimin just takes longer.

I was diagnosed with this condition back when the current active ingredient concentration was still prescription only. Now that it's available over the counter, I have found that the continuous spray works just as well as the script ever did.

FWIW my doctor told me it was something I would always have to deal with occasionally and that some people "were genetically predisposed to an overgrowth of this naturally occurring fungus."

I also found that this sunscreen has gotten rid of my spots too, which was surprising.

u/realtips365 · 1 pointr/sex

I have the same problem. Went to the doctor and they prescribed me some stuff for UTI, STIs, etc., but nothing helped. Just ordered anti-fungus cream, so I'm hoping that helps. Might try that. Available on Amazon, Walmart, and most other stores. Someone else on Reddit recommended this one (Lotrimin):

If you don't want to use the link (sometimes I don't trust links either), just type in "Lotrimin" in at Amazon or Walmart. Hope that helps. :)

u/EsotericKnowledge · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hi! I lost ~120lbs at one point and I suffer from a disease called Lipedema, so I'm familiar with the skinfold issues.My dermatologist told me that it's often/usually yeast that gets between the skin folds. That sounds icky, but it's part of your normal skin flora. It just tends to flourish and go a little crazy in warm, dark, moist places (like skin folds).I was prescribed antifungal powder (Zeasorb with Miconazole Nitrate) to keep it dry and kill the baddies, without feeding them the way cornstarch would. If you wind up with a lot of ingrowns that get very blistery (this happens to me on one of my shins of all places) you may have a secondary bacterial infection from the skin being compromised, either the skin barrier getting damaged from irritation or from popping something or from shaving that area. Neosporin on those will help for certain kinds of bacteria and most people have that laying around, so you can try that out. If it doesn't work, you can try washing with hibiclens (chlorhexidine gluconate, it's the stuff you bathe with before surgery, available at any drugstore) and that will take care of most other bacteria. In the event that neither of these things help, you may have something that requires a prescription (like staph), or you may have hidradentits suppurativa, which requires a different prescription. Here is the OTC version of the powder (which is the same strength as my prescription btw). In the summer, the stuff is a godsend and I even put some in my bra so I don't get sweaty and irritated under my boobs.


Good luck, and the cocoa butter may not be the ideal moisturizer for those regions you are describing. Yeast really likes certain fatty acids and derivatives, and you may be exacerbating the problem without realizing it. Amlactin, which is a body lotion which contains a fairly high percentage of alpha-hydroxy acids, can help lighten up discoloration on the body over time by gently exfoliating the area. WARNING HOWEVER: Don't use amlactin on parts of your body that are still irritated, because it will sting on broken skin. Something simple and designed to be hypoallergenic and non-irritating is what you should use until then (eucerin, cerave, cetaphil, vanicream - that sort of stuff)

This version of Amlactin contains ceramides to help condition the skin and restore your natural moisture barrier.

Did you try any OTC anti-fungal products like this one?

This product can claim to treat fungal skin infections according to the FDA because the active ingredient is an effective topical anti-fungal. (The active ingredient can also be used internally.)There are other brands besides that one; the stuff will cost you less than $10. Fungicure is sold in some Walmart stores.

u/zyxwr · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

This odor eater foot spray is the only thing I've found that works for my feet. I just spray and let it dry. My feet get sweaty but not nearly as stinky. But loafer socks are your best bet. They help a lot. You may have to try a couple to find the right no-show for your type of shoe though.

u/lisatunstall12 · 1 pointr/NailFungus

Hey, you can try home remedies or natural Toe nail eliminator. It's really effective and i have also tried this. This is made form natural ingredients and safe for use. If you want then you can buy here.

u/aubbey · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Tinea versicolor is really hard to get rid of for good, at least it is for me. Washing your skin with selsun blue helps as a pre-emptive strike, especially when it's hot and humid out in the summer. Mine responds really well to this stuff. Also, you'll have to give it some time to clear up. Sometimes it takes my patches a week or two to clear up after initially hitting them with the anti-fungal.

u/shezbot · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

This stuff is pretty awesome.

u/G4M3F4C3 · 3 pointsr/everymanshouldknow

I don't know how this hasn't been mentioned yet, but Lotrimin Powder spray works like a fucking charm. Go to any pharmacy/grocery store and it's there with the athletes foot stuff.

They also make one with a yellow bottle instead of orange that is specifically for jock itch, but it is the exact same formula as the orange bottle and not all places carry it.

u/OldMilwaukee · 1 pointr/whatisthisthing

Hahaha. Sorry about your table mate, and thanks for the heads up. I will avoid said product. I already got a cool room vaporizer that had a blue LED in it and does either water or water with scents in it.

I'm aware of the price on Amazon, I only paid $5 for mine.

u/octopop · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Pal who wrote the loooong post about malassezia suggested using DOGGIE WIPES on your face cause they have ketoconazole in them. The Nizoral shampoo has the same active and has been the most effective thing I've tried so far for my bumps. Is this absolutely insane or worth a shot? I've been looking for an alternative to the shampoo cause it's so drying, but cannot find a cream with ketoconazole. I may try another anti-fungal product but I'm scared it will not be as effective. Here's a link to the doggie wipes.

Just for funsies, here's a link to the cream I'm considering. Any opinions/guidance on this is appreciated. Thanks!! ✨

I presume this condition itches. It appears most consistent with [Tinea Corporis] ( aka Ring worm. It is called ring worm because usually there are characteristic rings, though sometimes they are hard to appreciate unless you are looking for them. It is not serious and can be treated with OTC medications like Terbinafine also available at local drug stores.
You should apply this for twice daily at least 10 days after the symptoms and rash seem to resolve. If this doesn't address the problem, please make an appointment to see your medical provider.

u/CrossP · 2 pointsr/hamsters

I like these clippers for hams

And the description sounds like a possible fungal infection, so you might try terbinafine (Lamisil) Confirm with a vet if possible, but I know that not everyone has the opportunity.

u/sassypants55 · 3 pointsr/Indiemakeupandmore

I really like trinket boxes, such as the silver/mirrored kind you can get at places like TJ Maxx or Home Goods. That's how I store my perfume samples.

If you have a lot of samples and/or want more visibility, you can use what's usually listed as a nail polish rack. There are a lot of different styles available on Amazon.

u/mescad · 2 pointsr/keto

I've been using this one - Omega Ultra Slim Digital Bathroom Scale (Amazon link) - for the past three weeks, and I'm very satisfied. I can't speak to its accuracy, but it gives consistent values, so that works for me.

u/erin_said · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

I've been meaning to get odor-eater insoles for a while, but I keep forgetting. I just got a new pair of flats though, so I need to do it before they get rank.

I've used this foot spray before and it works pretty good too (for the stank, I've never had to deal with athletes foot, luckily).

u/OriginalZombie · 0 pointsr/medical

I'm having a hard time understanding what I'm looking at in the picture, but I can almost guarantee based on the location and itching this is a fungal infection. You could try some antifungal cream like this one and see of that cures it

u/aphrael · 2 pointsr/loseit

I just got this one, which had very good reviews and has so far seemed accurate and in working order to me. I don't know if they have it on the Canadian Amazon, though. It also doesn't do body fat % etc.

u/kitty_muffins · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Oh man, I feel your pain!

I haven’t tried the Gold Bond brand powder, I will give it a shot. Do you by any chance have a link to the Under Armor bra you like?

If it helps, this is the anti fungal powder I was using:

I don’t like using an anti fungal daily, though my doc seemed to be ok with it. I do find that it works waaaaay better than anti-fungal creams when I have an infection, because it dries things up instead of turning the whole area into a slippery mess the way anti-fungal creams do.

u/forevertuesday · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I wear heavy boots at work, and no matter how much I washed my feet and in between toes, used a boot dryer after work, and changed socks, I would still get athletes foot. I started using the tinactin spray every day before I put on my socks, and the results are amazing. No more athletes foot, period. I highly recommend it.

The active ingredient was Tolnaftate, an antifungal. Any spray with tolnaftate will do the trick.

Although, it's not discontinued, you can still get it.

I spray my shoes with [odor eaters spray powder] ( which kills bacteria and fungus growing in your shoe, eliminating the smell. It also adsorbs any excess moisture after air drying them.
