    Lightbulb AmLactin 12%

    Hi, My sister has been using AmLactin 12% lotion for the past few years for KP. We have KP and so does our Mom. My sister recently dropped a hint about AmLactin and I've had huge success using it the past few weeks. The effect was almost instant.

    AmLactin12% is manufactured by Upsher-Smith and is available over the counter. Most pharmacies will order it for you if they do not stock it.

    I found this web-site through the April edition of Natural Health.

    Good luck!

    AmLactin question

    So what is your regimine w/ the AmLactin? When & how often do you apply it & do you use anything else along w/ it? I've been using the sulf. soap which has really helped but I can't seem to get rid of the bumps completey. Thanks for any info. you can give me.

    I use a plastic body puff with shower gel. Sometimes I use a body scrub that is not too oily. The shower scrub is from Pureand basic.com, but I see that it's no longer listed in the Pure and Basic product list. I've e-mailed the company to find out what's happened. I also take Omega 3's and Omega 6 oils. This combination works on bumps under the skin of my upper arm. The bumps are almost non-existent and rarely turn into red blemishes.

    I apply a thin layer of the AmLactin on my buttocks and thighs after I dry off. So far, it works great on the red blemishes which always seemed to plague those areas despite scrubbing, taking oils, wearing natural fibers and bathing immediately after exercise.

    I'm never a big fan of pharmaceuticals, but I've been converted with the discovery of AmLactin.

    I'll post any updates on the body scrub since it has been fantastic and doesn't turn the tub into an oil slick!

    hmmm....amlactin has always had contradicting testimonies. Some find it works, others don't . But there is an important element in what ajcstamat mentions. It is important not to use it excessively .

    I've noticed that more is not always best or even necessary. On the contrary, when you smear on too much(especially lactic or urea) it makes KP look worse.

    There is another natural product I take that seems to help my skin. It is the Integumentary System Microbial Balancing Program soliton from the Perelandra Nature Research Center www.perelandra-ltd.com.

    The product comes preserved in brandy or vinegar (I recommend the brandy version because the taste is much less shocking than the vinegar). I take it at night before bed and in the morning upon arising as instructed. A bottle last for a number of months and is only $15. Perelandra makes a bunch of other MBPs including one for Lymph that I also think is helpful for keeping the skin clear. They provide a discount on the first website order for new users.

    Thumbs down Ouch!

    I have tried putting AmLactin on my 5 year old daughter a few times and she always cries out in pain saying that is stings and burns. So now I am throwing it out. I really wish I could find something that works for my poor baby. She is constantly picking at her bumps and I am so worried about scarring. Not to mention she will soon be at the age where it will become embarrassing.

    I am at a loss!

    Try Microbial Balancing Program Solutions

    I now rarely use AmLactin (yes, it does burn sometimes), instead I use the Perelandra Microbial Balancing Program solutions. I take all of the solutions every day, but you can try strating with just the Integumentary solution (for skin) and the Cell Solution. They come preserved in brandy or vinegar. I'm not a big fan of vinegar, so I take the solutions preserved in brandy and so does my 7-year old son.

    www.perelandra-ltd.com You get a discount off your first web-site order.

    I have been using AmLactin on my 1 year old boy for about 6 months. I cannot tell that it has helped any. I put it on 1 or 2 times a day. Do you think I am doing it to often? I sure hope it is not burning him. Do you think that the Perelandra would be safe for a toddler?

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
