Derm Recommended Only Face Wipes?

23 October 2014 - 07:12 AM

So at my last visit to the derm we dicussed my skin. Which at the moment looks much better spot wise, but dryness and sensitivity wise its lacking. 


Everything a face wash touched my face it get soooo dry even if i use a pea size amount, with limited amount of water. 


Also moisturizer makes my skin go nuts so thats very limited. 


She recommended i use face wipes to use to wash my face but only use it on the parts of my face where i need to clean a bit. 


She told me to try the cetaphil ones, so i am- but what i do is use a little water after i use a wipe just to get the residue off. 


So what do you thinK???  


p.s- i dont really wear face makeup

Getting A Bit Worried Its Not A Pimple..... Cancer? Pic Included : Take A Look

15 September 2014 - 09:57 PM

To start off, i know that i should just go straight to the derm.... but im 400 miles away at the moment and can't easily take a stroll over there to get checked out. 


And also i know this is just an online forum.... im asking for advice - not a cure. 


But anyways, 


Ive had this "pimple" for about 6-7 months.


I swear i remember it being a small whitehead... but i cant seem to remember exactly. 

I also do remember it looking like a bad blackhead at one point. 

Can it just be an ingrown hair???? 


The picture is included. for a bit of a location its at 3 o'clock from the corner where both my bottom and upper lip meets. And its exactly at the height of where the bottom of my nose is.... well i could of said cheek.... the bottom inner part of my cheek. 


I use Finacea (love this stuff-cleared my rosacea/acne great) everyday. That hasnt made it go away, ive used Aczone, and BP.............................. 


Advice is needed please. 


Should i go somewhere to get it looked at? 

How Much Topical To Apply To Skin? Answer Please! :)))))))

18 June 2014 - 06:00 AM

I use finacea topically 2x per day. The tube says apply a thin layer. So i take like a half pea size amount for each cheek, forhead, and chin. When i spread it i feel as if im applying a thin amount- but im not sure. Its not like i keep having to rub it in because theres too much i feel i apply a perfect amount. But i just dont know. 

Mirvaso : The Treatment With A Twist. (Read This If You Get Bored)

29 May 2014 - 09:11 PM

Hey everyone - so i thought i should make a topic on Mirvaso. If you dont know what Mirvaso is- its a topical (gel like) that is primarily given to those who suffer with rosacea or skin prone to redness. I know this may have nothing to do with acne! But i wanted to make it because i do suffer from acne still, and also i want to also maybe aid those who are in this community with rosacea! 

The topical (from what i know) shrinks the vessels that are at the root of the cause of rosacea. I had never heard of this topical ever- i was at my basic derm visit just to get a refill of other creams and oral meds and to update him on my skins current condition. I had said that i wanted to do v-beam- because right now my main issue is just reddness caused by veins on current parts of my face-t im only 20 talking about veins on my face- but anyways, i told him that i wanted to have this treatment (which ive done before) He said i could but it can be a bit pricey (which wasnt an issue) So he told me he has something that should do the trick! And he hurried away to his office, and came back with samples and a booklet. He explained what Mirvaso is and showed me the booklet with pictures of people with their before, and after shots. And showed how the drug bascially transformed these indivuduals. He wrote me a script and gave me the samples and said "if this works, fill the script" And thats it. My derm wasnt very specific in explaining what exactly it does or what it really is. And it made me scratch my head at how he said "if this works"- felt like sort of a lab rat. 


Anyways ive been using it since the visit- and i have to say it does do what it says it does. I ony spot apply it because theres nothing wrong with my skin besides like two places. The whole day my skin stays a normal color... but right at 12 hours- boom! the topical wears off, and it rebounds. Where i applied it, my skin is redder then when i started it- it will calm down like it does every night, but its so obvious that its from the topical because i spot apply it! Like theres obvious red lines as to where i applied it! Also i feel as if my skin is pulsing . So weirddddddddddddddddd. 


But to be honest- it works, but what you have to deal with after, makes it just so not worth it in the first place. Ill stick to just getting v-beam
