For those that have not seen my earlier post.. My 15yo son has SEVERE acne and i had joined acne.org  2 weeks ago looking for help.

 

The Regimen products have arrived but he is still using the Steiva A cream at night and i am not sure the best way to introduce the BP.

 

Should he alternate between the 2 [SteivaA & BP] each night until we finish the Stieva?? [this had been suggested to me in another thread]

Or should we just swap & start using BP straight away?

 

I am just worried that a change may bring on another breakout and it is already extremely bad right now.. what do you think the chances are of this happening?

 

Thanks in advance for your advise.

You're advised to stop using any other topicals and medications before using the regimen. So you could either use up your Steiva A cream and THEN start the regimen, or just stop using now and switch to the BP. Don't use both whatever you do.

How long has he been using Stevia A? Have you seen any progress or encouraging signs? You can either stick with that and see if it will work, or you can talk with his doctor about discontinuing it.

 

The Regimen works best when followed very strictly, so if you decide to give it a go just keep that in mind.

 

Good luck!

Thanks,

 

He has been using the Stieva A since the start of the year and had a VERY SEVERE breakout about 3 weeks in.. but now i feel like it is settling down. The problem is he has almost gone through the tube .. maybe as it looks like it may be improving, i might get another script for Stieva filled and continue with it.

 

He is using the Regimen cleanser / moisturiser and jojoba with it and applying all in the gentle method shown.. I hope that is ok to continue for now?

[i will just keep the BP away for now]
