I discovered Liquid Oil of Oregano thanks to my aunt, and I find it works very well on big, 'itchy' breakouts. I have nodular acne, and after washing my face, with clean hands I rub in one drop of oregano oil on the pimple(s). Depending on how "raw" the pimple is, the oil may sting somewhat. I find itchiness starts to go away immediately, and with applying the oil morning and night, even nodules diminish within a few days. All without prescription drugs or steroid injections! Apparently this oil can be used on any inflamed "bump" that comes up, like insect bites. Where I live, it costs between $20 and $40 depending on brand, for 30 ml. And yes, it does smell like oregano!
