I ALSO STOPPED TAKING MY TETRALYSAL AFTER A COUPLE DAYS ON THE REGIMEN as I wanted to quit long term antibiotics and I have had NO SKIN FLARE UP AT ALL.
As I am in the UK I have sourced my own products. The moisturiser was the biggest problem for me as I get spots using most moisturisers. My Nan brought me a spare bottle of hers when my skin was really dry in the first week and I haven't looked back!!!!!!!
I have used:
â™¥Clean and Clear Refreshing Deep Cleansing Wash
â™¥PanOxyl Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Cream (I used 5% as I had some stubborn huge nodules and I have had 2.5% prescribed and it did nothing for me. PanOxyl is availabe in 2.5%. Do not use 5% unless you have used allsorts on your skin before or you are prepared for EXTREME DRY SKIN)
â™¥Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid Moisturiser
I will be cutting down to using the BP once a day as most of my spots have gone and I haven't had any new ones.
Hopefully in another few weeks the slight scarring will be reduced further!!!!!!!!!!
