I'm a 20 year old male and I'm in dire need of help. The inflammation you see in my photo has been there for atleast a year now. It's never gone completely away and right now it's at one of the worst points it's ever been at. I went to a dermatologist and was given benzacliln and amoxacillin and I found that the benzaclin, being a steroid, made it worse so I figured it may be Perioral dermatitis and it was making it worse. Absolutely NO IDEA what this is but the rest of my skin is pretty much clear besides my chin line from shaving or whatever. I recently applied benzoyl peroxide on the area 3-4 times a day for 3 days and that's when it got really bad.
I also purchased the acne.org regimen and I'm worried that it may also make it worse being that BP is the main ingredient in the regimen, an I don't think my skin is comfortable with moisturizer as I no longer use it. I exercise daily and I believe I eat pretty well, maybe high in sugars and a lot of protein and milk. Could that be the issue? PLEASE HELP I've been dealing with this too long and I can't take it much longer.
Would minocycline or tetracycline help perhaps? Anything helps guys, and also has anyone had success on the regimen I'm really nervous about it as I'll be in Florida and constantly sweating every day and a lot of sun.
