In oily skin, the oil producing sebaceous glands are overactive and produce more oil than is needed. The oil oozes and gives the skin a greasy shine. It can be caused by heredity, diet, hormone levels, pregnancy, birth control pills and hot and humid weather. Oily skin needs special cleansing with plenty of hot water and soap to prevent the pores from being clogged. Avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness. They can cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhoea, where the oil glands work overtime to compensate for the loss of natural oils.
Avoid skincare products that leave your skin feeling taut and dehydrated. You can use cetaphil and make sure that the rest of the times you wash your face with fresh water. Avoid heavy greasy moisturizers and take a diet rich in proteins but restricted in sugar, fluids and salt. Drink plenty of quality water to keep the skin hydrated and flush out toxins.
If the symptoms persist then please get it examined from a dermatologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Thoroughly wash your face, eyelash follicles, crevices around your nose, and around your nostrils twice a day with Dial Antibacterial Soap. After a month of this you can just do it occasionally as a preventative measure. I had the same problem and tried to resolve it with antifungals, antibiotics, cortizone, peroxide, and so forth - all with no success. My eye doctor discovered the bacteria living on my face and told me he could prescribe benzethonium chloride or I could just wash with Dial Antibacterial Soap. It worked. Cringeworthy thought: Did the doctor notice this visually or did he smell it on my face?
I've had a similar problem for quite some time. Quite embarassing especially during kissing. I've tried the suggestions from the Internet like facial cleansers, milk thistle and avoiding sugars.
I don't smoke and just drinks occasionally.
Recently, we changed diet after hearing from the radio the best way to eat fruits due to its health benefits. On an empty stomach and not after or during meals. (The radio host also said not to drink cold drinks when eating oily and fatty foods. Better to drink hot or warm soup).
The fruits in season now here in the Philippines are banana, papaya, lanzones or langsat (Lansium domesticum) and rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum, related to lychee but with a bright red hairy shell).
Upon waking up, I drink 2 glasses of water then eat a portion of each fruit after 15 minutes. Regular breakfast after 30 minutes. Morning snacks around 10am means some fruits and water again.
15 minutes before lunch, fruits and water again. Then regular lunch meal.
Afternoon snacks around 3-4pm, fruits and water again.
15 minutes before dinner, fruits and water again. Then regular dinner meal.
Late evening snacks mean fruits and water again.
In just 3 short days, I feel different. The best result is that the smell coming from the pores on my nose and the sides are gone! I didn't know it would solve that problem! We just wanted to eat fruits at the best time for its health benefits!
Now, I'm doing marketing for fruits every 3 or 4 days for a 4-member household. 4 papayas of 1kg each, 3kgs banana, 2kgs lanzones, 3kgs rambutan. I spend around 12USD for all.
We are also adding more veggies in the menu. Stir fried mixed veggies or mixed veggies in a shrimp broth. We just make sure that the veggies are still crisp.
This is also making a big difference for my 78yo Mom.
Please try the fruit diet. Never thought my smelly nose and facial pores would be resolved.
Another result is that our poops are no longer smelly. :-)
This is similar to a yeast infection will you have going on on your face if you can find some dead seat salt or any sea salt wash your face with a warm compress to get the pores open then use a mixture of sea salt and Warm water and and apply it to your face in those areas do this twice a day after you are done use a cooler compress to close back up the pores and rinse the salt residue off your face after 2 days you should notice a difference
It is definitely yeast/fungal infection. My husband smellled like that and it would turn me off from kissing him. It was putrid smelling. I had him use an athlete’s foot powder on his oily areas after washing. Within days, the antifungal in the athletes foot powder got rid of the smell.
