Hi Sak,
Welcome to the site. That is surprising that tomatos work like that. I don' t have an acne problem, but it that ever happens to me I will certainly try it.

Maybe this is a silly question, but, do you eat the or puree them and apply them to your face????? I had the same problem and have had to deal with it over the last few years!!!!! I never had skin problems when I was younger but as soon as Lupus came knocking on my door.....poof......I have skin issues!!!! It is very frustrating! My dermatologist and I have found something that works wonders for me:

Wash with Brevoxyl twice a day!
Apply Metro Gel in the morning!
Apply Differin in the evening!
Take Bactrim one a day and Lybrel once a day!

I have not had a pimple in almost a year! It took some time but I am extremely happy with the results and would suggest this to everyone!!!!! Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!!!!! We are in it together!

Hi its not a silly question i should have actually written how to use it you wash your face with warm water then you apply it on your face where the acne is then you leave it on for fifteen minutes and wash it off with warm water.
