In Topic: Toner With Alcohol Making Red Marks Worse? Things That Help Red Marks?

Witch hazel toner w/alcohol can definitely irritate. I know from first hand experience. That was my only experience using toners so I can't offer any other alternatives.

In Topic: Is It Better To Buy From Natural Store Or Drugstore

I suspect you will get better quality product and more choices from a natural store. In my experience drugstores tend to have a limited selection of organic products. Online can be a pretty good way to purchase stuff too.

Acure Organics has a good line up of natural face cleansers, shampoos, body washes, etc. Not too expensive either. Take a look at their website. You can get sample sizes for some of their products by calling their customer service group.

In Topic: What's Wrong With The Website?

I live in Michigan and experienced the issue all weekend  through Sunday night. It's now 9:40AM Mon and everything seems to look normal.

I spoke too soon. The display keeps flip flopping between normal and error state. Refresh response time is so slow the site is unusable. Time to go do something else.

I have been through a very similar situation as what you describe. First derm was insistent on antibacterial treatments. Kept trying them for about a year with no improvement / worsening of condition. Went to a second derm for a second opinion. Second derm did some small biopsies which confirmed the issue was fungal. Ketoconazole shampoo and oral antifungal med have pretty much cleared up my problem. You should get a second opinion from another derm. You need to know (with certainty) what is the nature of your issue so proper treatment can be prescribed. Visual assessment may not be adequate. Good luck.
