The removal of milk, combined with the continued used of the Stieva A topical, his antibiotic & the addition of a pro biotic & gentle cleansing & moisturising routine seems to be producing steady results right now.
this was taken this morning.."
Um, YEAH- I can see the results so far. Wow!!! What a difference! He already looks way better. Keep doing what you're doing, and I agree that he should take a probiotic as well. Dairy free, of course. He is clearly sensitive to dairy, and you might also consider having him tested for a wheat intolerance. I know, he's a teenager, & it's nearly impossible to ask them to change their diets. I have a teenage son too, who had severe cystic acne.
I wish him & you the best. And I hope his skin keeps improving!!
