Hi, Im new to the forum so I hope Im doing this right. Here's a little intro to my skin and regimen. Im a 24 year old female and for the last 3 years or so my acne and weight have been slowly increasing, I have been to the doctor and apparently there is no reason for it besides I must not be eating healthy and exercising enough (even though I do
) I have tried so many different things on my face and nothing works, everything from cheaper drug store things like clearisil to expensive products from Sephora, Ive tried natural/organic things, salicylic acid things, benzyl peroxide things, nothing seems to work so I finally went to the dermatologist. This is what i have now been doing for about a month: using Cetaphil face wash twice daily and putting prescription Epiduo on after washing, using Panoxyl-8 on my shoulders back and chest, and was on 80mg solodyn for about 2 weeks until I starting breaking out in hives from it, currently Im no longer on an antibiotic but in about 2 weeks she is going to start me on erythromycin.
I have read that cetaphil may not be as good for your skin as it claims and I would like to find a good alternative, something good and plain that would be good for my skin. When I wash with the Cetaphil it even burns a little. I'm lost on what else to try especially because it does not seem like what Im using is making much of a difference for me. I have a Wedding at the end of September and I really dont want to have embarrassing acne all over for it.
