Journal of Drugs in Dermatology
defines Sulfur as a yellow, non-metallic
element with medicinal properties.
Sulfur naturally occurs in volcanoes,
surfacing upwards daily from underground
steam vents and is also found
in hot mineral springs. The use
of sulfur to treat acne dates
back since the time of Hippocrates.
Since Sulfur is a natural anti-fungal,
antiseptic, and anti-bacterial,
in dermatology, sulfur has been
employed in the treatment of many
diseases, including acne vulgaris,
rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis,
dandruff, pityriasis versicolor,
scabies, and warts.
