I'm disappointed. I don't know what I should do to defeat acne. It's the 7th week of Isotrex (topical isotretinoin ) in combination to Benzoyl Peroxide 10% (that I use in the morning).. I have been fighting with acne since September 2012. Now I'm annoyed.
I still have breakouts , I still have red marks and red inflamed pimples and now breakouts are just happening also on the other part of my face. I'm waiting, I have been using it EVERY DAY with costance. Why my acne is still worse??
I will book a new control with my doctor to see what he says.
Do you have any suggestions?? I was thinking to apply topical antibiotics (while continuing to apply benzoyl peroxide and  topical isotretinoin) you know like eritomycin. Could it be a good thing?
 




What Benzoyl Peroxide product are you using? I just started using Panoxyl 4% because a doctor told me I was still breaking out from the bacteria in my skin. You could try that. You wash your face with it for 1-2 minutes. I only use it once a day because it can be drying. I also use Simple Rich Moisturizer to help with any dryness. So far it seems to be reducing my breakouts. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hey , how are you??

I'm using benzoyl peroxide 10% gel (product's name is Benzolait 10 Emulgel) so it isn't a cleanser like yours .. As cleanser I use a delicate cleanser not to stress the skin.. I used to have a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide 1% and it was a little bit irritant.. after that my doctor changed it.

I will go to the doctor soon so I will talk with him..

I'm still having breakouts  but maybe my skin is having a little bit of improvement (less general redness, less dryness) so... finger crossed!

Keep me updated. Good luck and thank you for the advice :)
