Not to discount your experience, but "Now, waking up after an overnight application of the Lotrimin, my acne I would say is 50% better". 50% of your zits went away in one night?


Why yes, actually. The right side of my face had a particularly stubborn patch of zits which started to relapse after just one application of Lotrimin.

46yo male here and I have recently come to a similar conclusion. Been using BP for years, and while it has helped it has never been completely effective no matter how much I used. Recently started using Nizoral too and significantly cleared up.

Unfortunately I started using erythromycin and BP at about the same time, so I can't say conclusively which is working, but my gut tells me I have a combination of acne and some kind of fungal acne / folliculitus so both medicines are helping.

Clearer skin so far!


Great! I've been meaning to buy Nizoral too, because of its potential to clear up fungus and acne, but haven't been able to find it in my local pharmacies. 



Update:

My skin is completely clear, except for hyperpigmentation. I am also starting to take Solaray Yeast Cleanse supplements.

* I was on birth control and spironolactone for a year, which I have been off of since late August. This change may be responsible for my recent yeast flare-ups. 



I also discontinued my use of Retin A Micro.

That's great! I was red around the eyes, raccoon-like, from eczema caused mostly by eggs. (Now I'm suspecting also caused by yeast.)

After eliminating eggs, the eczema went away! As did much of my acne.

Exactly. The elimination diet will save you time + $ + agony, and give you solid conclusions...I wish I had known about nutrition and eliminating problematic foods when I was younger.
