I am completely lost. My acne is absolutely killing me. None are cystic, but my cheeks and chin are covered in skin colour, and red pimples. I've also recently developed a patch around 1.5 cm in width, which is red, dry and hard, but is not painful. I'm not sure what it is.
Also, I get a breakout the same day every week. I will wake up the next morning with whiteheads on my chin. I have sports on this day, but i don't sweat, and i can't recall touching my face more than i usually do, so i have no idea why this is.
I'm currently using a face exfoliator, followed by 10% benozyl peroxide cream. Are there any other treatment suggestions? I've used tetracycline, but i stopped it because it wasn't helping, although i may have stopped it prematurely. Because of the nature of antibiotics, i don't think i can go back on it.
I really appreciate the help.
