Hi.. I have moderate acne since 1 year ago.. I have always used Benzoyl Peroxide 10% on my face.. I used it till the summer and in the summer my face was free from the pimples.. I had only red marks but it was acceptable. When I started to go to school in September a lot of pimples came out again.. I used again benzoyl peroxide but at the end my doctor gave me "Isotrex" that is topical isotretinoin.
I have been using it since 1 month ago (and I'm still using it) . I apply it every night and I apply also Benzoyl Peroxide 10% every morning. I wash the face twice a day (morning and night) ..
I'm scared about it. I have noticed a lot of new inflamed pimples.. My skin is really dry and it's like a chimical peeling.
I don't know why this acne doesn't go far to me
Actually I use Bioderma's Sebium Hydra as moisturizer and as cleaner I use Uriage's Gel .. I have used a lot of products (like Avene's Triacnèal that leaves the skin very dry and burns the face , a cream called "YouDerm" that is A SHAME .. it has only worsened the acne, Bioderma's Sebium Global that is a moisturizer that I find very irritant , I also used Uriage's Hyseac k18 that is a normal moisturizer , and Royal Derma's Benzolait Mousse that is a cleaner with Benzoyl peroxide 1%.. It was a little bit irritant)
So, look at these photos if you want.
