#3417652 Is This A Good Combination?

Posted by Torquemonster on 02 March 2014 - 02:42 AM

Flopus, unfortunately there is not a cookbook answer to your questions about all those pruducts and usages. It all boils down to your skin type and how sensitive it is. For instance, I have ultra-sensitive skin and can't use BP or SA without turning red. You should proceed with a systematic approach. Only introduce one product at a time in low frequency of use and then build up from there. I know how much of a pain this stuff can be. Hope you get it sorted out.

#3391975 Rude People Commenting On Adult Acne

Posted by Torquemonster on 02 November 2013 - 01:53 AM

I just had an experience that made me feel like crap. I was talking to a lady in our street who I've just met and she said to me "I can see you've got acne on your chin and cheeks you should try medication" a) I'm on prescriptive cream b) Thanks for making me like such crap on a day I felt like my skin looked good c)Go to ettiquette class and learn how not to be so rude. Has anyone else had a similar experience?? It'd be great to think I wasn't alone  lol :)

Definitely a rude a-hole. Good way to handle it is to make return comment that points out one of her personal deficiencies => eye for an eye approach will usually shut those kind of people up.

#3364549 Sudden Itchy Red Skin Which Left Red Uneven Skin,zit And Bumpy Skin(Feels Lik...

chlorpheniramine maleate, is a first-generation alkylamine antihistamine used in the prevention of the symptoms of allergic conditions such as rhinitis and urticaria.
in cough syrup i have.
CBIOT13 i admit i was too stressed about my skin but it also has a lot to do with my personal life.
i am sick of feeling so depressed and suicidal and it does screw my mental health.
thank u for ur support.
i will just bother u once more,
i was wandering if u know anything about such cyst forming underskin after dermititis?
also, any idea if they'd be okay within a week or so(i have an important work)
will applying ice once or twice  a day do any good?

Well if the medicine is an anti-histamine it might work; whenever I have an allergic reaction I take a dedicated anti-histamine product, so I don't know about an anti-histamine in cough syrup.
Yes some icing wouldn't hurt. If the cyst is swollen, painful, or tender, then icing will have the greatest effect. Otherwise it might not do anything. Just be careful not to ice for too long and to use some sort of barrier so the ice isn't in direct contact with your skin.
It probably isn't a cyst though. From what I've read, dermatitis sometimes comes with a red, raised, rough patch/spot around where the itching is. I wouldn't fuss with it too much, and it should be gone or at least greatly minimized in a few days smile.png
benedryl is here is a cough syrup?
if u have one,could u state its anti-histamine ingredient?
Benadryl is an allergy medication in pill form and it contains the first-gen antihistamine called diphenhydramine. That chlorpheniramine maleate antihistamine is also available in pill form. I frequently use it to reduce allergy symptoms that I get. It is the only antihistamine that seems to work for me without causing drowsiness. It is quite inexpensive too....you can even buy it on Amazon. I would not recommend using lots of cough syrup just to get the antihistamine benefits. Those syrups contain other stuff that you shouldn't be taking on a long term basis. Try not to stress out about your skin....I know it is easier said than done. I have found that stressing about the skin simply makes it get worse, a vicious cycle for sure.  

#3364253 Is There A Correlation Between Working In A Restaurant And Acne Breakouts?

Posted by Torquemonster on 06 July 2013 - 10:35 AM

When I was in high school and college I worked as a cook in a restaurant that did a lot of deep frying. I always felt as though I had a thin layer of grease on me, and my skin was pretty bad back then. Somehow the frying grease must penetrate into the skin because I remember smelling like deep fried fish/seafood even after taking a shower. I think you are right.

#3363735 How To Not Scratch Face?

Posted by Torquemonster on 04 July 2013 - 02:26 AM

Your face must be way too dry if you are scratching it to the point of irritation or inflammation. Either use moisturizer, or reduce the usage of whatever is drying your face out, or invest in a set of handcuffs.
