hormonal cystic acne, benzaclin? best face wash?

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering how many of you have hormonal cystic acne? and if you've used benzaclin?

also, what face washes have you found to work the best for you!

Thanks!

FYI: I have a once in a lifetime huge vacation in just under two months and really need to at least clear up for the most part. Thanks!

I do...I've used benzaclin and it helped to clear up break outs fairly quick, but I can't say it ever prevented them. I use an exfoliating scrub containing benzoyl peroxide (2.5%) in the morning, and at night I use a face wash with salicylic acid (2%) and glycolic acid (5%). I also use duac (morning) and finacea (night). I am more happy with these than I was with benzaclin.

I don't know what you mean by 'hormonal cystic acne.' Almost all acne is hormone related. Exceptions are things like allergic reactions and pores clogged by topicals.

I definately have hormone issues, but my cystic acne was caused by an allergy.
