Proactiv Stopped Working
Posted by rfowke, 20 August 2014 · 103 views
Hey guys, I'm almost nineteen and have had acne since seventh grade. The summer before eighth grade I went to a dermatologist and was given a couple of topical creams and oral meds, and those cleared my skin up but made it very red with extremely dry and oily patches. Then the meds stopped working altogether the summer before my junior year of high school so I started Proactiv. I had amazing results with Proactiv, not only did it clear my skin up completely but it reduced the oil and completely took away the dryness. This summer Proactiv has stopped working to prevent acne, it heals it sort of quickly once its on the surface, but no longer prevents it, and I am breaking out horribly! I tried going on Proactiv's website to ask them what was happening, and nobody responded. I start college tomorrow, this is not how I envisioned beginning the next four years of my life and I don't want to be stressing about my skin when I need to be focused on classes! I can't find anything that says what people used after Proactiv stopped working for them, and the customer service people at Proactiv won't help me. I feel completely alone in this, I am the only one of my friends who has acne so none of them understand what it's like to try everything and still feel like you're looking at someone else's face when you look in the mirror. I don't know what to do, somebody please help me!
