Cerave Allergies?

3 posts in this topic

I recently bought cerave cleanser and moisturizer to substitute for the acne.org ones. They work great but I've been getting a lot of mosquito like bumps on my face. However these bumps pop up well after I've used the products like 5 hours. Could it be an allergic reaction? Or could it actually be mosquito bites?

I dont know about Cerave, but I get this with Cetaphil moisturizer, I broke out the most when I started swimming and would feel my skin got too dry after it and would lather on cetaphil lotion.

I had millions of tiny bumps.

I think those tiny bumps might be an allergic reaction or caused by clogged pores. I never had luck with cetaphil or cerave, although many people use them successfully. If you have sensitive skin, you might be reacting to one of the ingredients. Both contain sulfates, which are the main trigger of allergic reactions if you have sensitive skin. Cerave also contains dimethicone and parabens, which can break some people out. But my money is on the sulfates.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
