So I am approaching my 5th month of Ortho Tri Cyclen BCPs...and I have to say my skin has FINALLY begun to clear up.
I had a sudden outbreak of hormonal acne about 6-7 months ago, having never had a pimple before in my life. I am 25.
The initial breakout from Ortho Tri was horrible, and my skin still isn't as good as it was before I started taking it....but now I am beginning to see more good days than bad.
HOWEVER...I still suffer from these stubborn little bumps (sometimes they get red and inflamed, but mostly just stay tiny bumps) all along my chin and jawline, occaisionally on my lower cheeks.
Does anyone know of a good spot treatment for this?
Because it's hormonal acne, my doctor prescribed me Epiduo, but I feel like that could do more harm than good, being that my acne is not moderate anymore.
Does anyone know of good, fast, effective spot treatments for this kind of mild tiny bump acne?
They just don't go away!! I've had them for months... I'm looking for something I can purchase at my local CVS/pharmacy/anything OTC.
I wouldn't want to aggrivate my skin when it's doing so well, so again, I don't know if Epiduo is right for me at this point. I just need something that will get rid of the bumps without inflaming them or purging the areas around my current blemishes.
Is there a spot treatment that works to kill the bacteria in the small bumps, flatten and heal them; rather than bring it to a head and try to expel it from my skin?
