minor bacne... need advice
Posted 12 November 2004 - 05:02 PM
right now i'm just using some clinique 0.1% tryclosan soap in the shower every morning. my skin seems to be really sensitive so salycilic acid and things only make it worse. would I be better off foregoing any medication at all and using a regular soap?
I use the clinique 3 step process on my face and that works fine... I have no problems on my face at all. is there some equivalent process I can use for my back?
if anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it... this has been driving me batty for some time now

SA just does exfoliation - does not kill the bacteria. Use a BP or topical antibiotic body wash as well.
If your skin is really dry, try using a body moisturizer that contains SA instead.
Neutragena makes one i believe

oh yeah, and one other thing that has been helping me a lot is not putting a shirt on right after I shower... it gives my skin a chance to settle down. for some reason I seem to get a lot of irritation if I dress right after I shower
thanks a lot for the advice everyone
