  1. Dissolve one powder packet into 16 oz of lukewarm water for a 1:40 dilution.
  2. Moisten the solution with a clean, soft, white cloth such as gauze, a thin diaper, a clean pillowcase cut into strips, a handkerchief, or a small towel.
  3. Wring out the cloth gently until damp (but not soaking wet).
  4. Place the damp cloth loosely over the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. If the gauze or other material dries out, moisten it again before removing from the skin so as not to damage your skin.
  6. Repeat 2-3 times daily.
  7. Discard the solution after each use.

Dr. Comite and his staff are absolutely amazing! I was recommended to him from family and when I first went to see Dr. Comite my skin was in bad shape-I had very active acne, worse than I ever experienced before in my life. After having graduated from college I didn’t expect this skin change and I didn’t know how to improve it or if it would even improve. Dr. Comite however, was extremely knowledgeable, optimistic, and truly cared about helping me get my clear skin back. My visits were always friendly and comfortable which was important to me during a time when I was feeling less than myself. After only a few sessions, Dr. Comite and his team found the correct treatment to clear up my skin. Within a month my skin showed improvement and in only two months my skin drastically improved. After being a patient of Dr. Comite’s for over four years I couldn’t be happier! My skin has continued to be clear and I know if I have any questions or concerns an answer is just a phone call to the office. I’m so thankful to have found such a dedicated doctor in the field of dermatology. Dr. Comite and his staff helped me get, and keep, the skin I knew I could have. I highly recommend him to anyone with any dermatology needs.
