i use the nutrogena products, ultra dry sheer for years, and recently I've tried their clear face offering, which I do like better (I like the way it feels on my face better)....neither of these break me out


but everyone is different, so do a test spot and see what works for you

to me, who has suffered from cystic acne for years, that doesn't look like a cyst to me...cysts are deep under the skin and rarely come to a head...I can almost see the white coming to the surface here


but no matter, it's big and it stinks, for sure to have to deal with....have you tried retin a or tazorac?  those things help clear out pores, you have a lot of clogged pores, it would help....there is a break in period, but once you get over that it does work


and try ditching dairy too for a month, I totally agree with the other poster on that!


good luck, keep us posted-  look at the icing method here on the site, search for it, you may get some relief

i have had IPL treatments for red marks...I know PDL is the standard, but IPL works for me, and hair removal is not an issue


what settings does your doctor use for the PDL, that may be more helpful for people to compare

not bad, forehead, neck, temples are clear and around your nose


and it's not cystic so the scars won't be bad, unless you pick, so don't!


lots of clogged pores and whiteheads, what is your current routine?  are you using BP or what?  seeing a derm?

yes for me no milk, no ice cream, no cheese...I use a blended almond/coconut milk that is pretty good, Almond Breeze, even in my tea


so do try it, completely dairy free for a month, if it makes no difference then good for you, not an issue, but I bet you find it makes some difference-  milk causes inflammation......google anti inflammatory foods, and focus on those too


I LOVE coconut, so you can get coconut yogurt, ice cream, milk, etc....the possibilities are endless
