How can one drain a blocked hair follicle or sebaceous gland near the eyebrow?
I realize the answer I'll receive is "go to the doctor" however I don't have health insurance and cannot afford this option right now. I have been repeatedly let down by Allopathic medical doctors and will not be visiting any for this issue. Any home remedies or suggested treatments are greatly appreciated.
I'm a chronoic eczema suffered and use salves (Elder, Calendula, and Rose hip with safflower and olive oil bases) to treat my eczema. The downside is that I do end up with clogged pores due to the oils warranted to relieve eczema. I'm curious to know prevention, early, and ongoing treatments for such blocked pores (sebaceous cysts and blocked hair follicle).
I am a fairly experienced home herbalist and am open to any suggestions.
Try visiting a local aesthetician. Ask for galvanic therapy for desincrustation, followed by iontophoresis. They will use 2 electrodes; one making constant contact and the other on the problem area. When used in the negative polarity the electrode combined with a desincrustation solution (usually a sodium bicarbonate solution) creates a chemical change in your skin and turns sebum into a soapy substance that can easily be extracted. Afterward, the aesthetician should use the electrode in a postive polarity to penetrate the affected area with a serum or other hydrating substance in accordance to your skin condition to counter the effect of removing the sebum.
