// Update 22 May 2007
I noticed – only today 22 May 2007 – that the area (sides) that I applied this had become red! I only noticed this today. Ya, I was repeating myself. Couldn’t believe it. Maybe previously I didn’t notice it because I practically smothered my whole face with Nixoderm. I thought I looked beautiful. :D
I don’t use it everyday – just to let my skin and me breathe. My pillow’s cover needs to be cleaned and hanged under the hot sun to remove the ‘scent’. It’s not exactly pheromones.

The Tohtonku – Follow Me – Oil Contro is not working aggh!
In my house, Nixoderm has been available for years, maybe 20 years. It has always been around but I never use it for pimples.
In fact, Nixoderm’s round green bottle package states that it’s for:
Pimples, Blemishes, Rash, Ringworm, Peeling, Itchy skin and Scaling skin due to External irritation.
I used to use this for ringworm and bites from mosquitoes when I was a kid. I looked at this Nixoderm with skeptic. “Pimples can meh?”
Nixoderm contains active ingredients – Benzoic Acid 6%, Salicylic Acid 2.5%, precipitated Sulphur 4.6%.
- Damn Cheap
- Small & portable
- Can be used for other skin problems – it worked on small ringworms when I was a kid. Not sure about now…
- It’s sticky. Ick.
- Thick white paste.
- Can’t go out in this.
- A bit funny smell.
- Need to use clean finger/cotton bud/sth to scoop it out from the bottle – do the active ingredients loose their effectiveness when exposed to air – we have to open the cap to use it?
- Want to remove it? Maybe scrapping with nails will help.
