I recently started using pure African black soap for about 2 weeks now, developed with dry skin.

Patient : I recently started using pure african black soap for about two weeks now. I started experiencing dryness of skin, which I'm told is normal, but also dark spots have formed on my skin now. For youinformation, I am of African American race also.
Doctor :   Hello thanks for your health query on ATD. African black soap, as I understand, is made up of many herbal products. S ome of these ingredients may be irritant to skin. My advice is to stop this product & start using Hydrocortisone cream after consulting your Dermatologist. Hope this will help you.
