Flowers of Sulphur and Acne scars

Hi,
I was advised by a nurse at work that i can buy flowers of sulphur and mix it with a teaspoon of honey for my acne scars. I have been using differin to get rid of my acne which has cleared very well but i am now left with the scars. She advised me that there will be a lot of gas and it will smell realy bad, i don' t have a problem with that but i' m uncertain that ingesting the yellow powder is even allowed or if this will work at all. Can i actually swallow that stuff? Will it work at all? isn' t there another alternative like using this as a mask other than eating it. Please help i really want to do something about my scars but do not want to go through any surgeries, peels or debrasions.

I do not agree with this treatment and cant see how ingetsing it will help treating your scarring at all. Topical sulpher is however effective in treating, amongst others, acne due to its keratolytic, antifungal and antibacterial activity.

I drink a knife tip of flowers of sulpher every morning I use to get bad boils and got recomended to try that and it works like a charm. I even stopped using it for a while the boils came back and as soon as i started to take it again it faded away and I dont get them aslong as i take my knife tip full every morning its tasteless just the texture is funny and it swallows much esier than epsom salt!
