Derm Trip #1

Posted by stephabella97, 08 April 2012 · 203 views

Hi! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile but... I went to the dermatologist!!

He told me I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin- so much so that I shouldn't be using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. He also said that I don't have rosacea at all, but the KP on my arms has to do with the redness on my face. He also said I had seborrheic dermatitis, which can happen with acne, so he prescribed me with clindamycin phosphate lotion (for the acne) and ketaconzole cream (for the seborrheic dermatitis).

I'm still breaking out a bit but its nothing concealer can't cover :) I have a big zit right above my eyebrow though :(
My skin care routine has completely changed... so now I'm using:
-Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (Day & Night)
-Clindamycin phosphate (Day & Night)
-Ketaconazole (around my nose in the morning)
-Serious Skin Care 10% sulfur treatment (he said I'm allowed to use it :) )
-Cetaphil Daily Advance Lotion for Dry Sensitive Skin (Day & Night)
-Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 30 lotion (Day)

I have an appointment in June so... I guess I'll update then :)

ps. If you haven't tried an oatmeal mask yet, it's awesome! haha it gently exfoliates your skin (which I need since I'm not supposed to use any harsh exfoliators like scrubs or glycolics) and calms it down if your skin has been really irritated, red, or dry... Love it :) Just take a handful of regular oatmeal (not a packet though), put your hand under warm water, and put the wet oatmeal all over your face for 15 minutes
