How about wash with the H&S one or twice per week as preventative maintenance to keep the fungis at bay? That's the simplest thing that comes to mind. Everything else I can think of requires a prescription.

I think you should go see your dermatologist.

In Topic: Question About Neutrogena Cleanser

Personally I think it's OK not to use a face moisturizer. It's one less variable in my mind. I've tried using them a number of times but have always had bad results (i.e. skin issues). I have found that if I use gentle, non-drying, non-irritating products that I don't need a moisturizer. My skin is extremely sensitive and tends to be a bit oily, which also influences my decision. My opinion, if you don't need a moisturizer than don't use.

Regarding those cleansers, I wouldn't use either. My skin is too sensitive to handle the sulfate / alcohols and I seem to recollect castor oil can be a pore clogger. Good luck.

I also have extremely sensitive skin. BP and SA are too irritatating for me and causee to have breakouts. One thing that has helped me alot is eliminating all products with: sulfates, parabens, tallowates, soaps, oils, dyes, fragrances. I have found that sulfur based and ketoconazole based products do not irritate me. Those are only "acne" products that I use. I also use a gentle non-irritating face wash, Dickinson foaming face wash. I've had issues anytime I've tried using moisturizers on my face, so I don't use. My skin tends toward the oily side.

I converted to being a back sleeper to avoid contact of my face with the pillow. I still change the pillow case about every three days.
