Closed Comedone Treatment?

22 June 2013 - 05:46 PM

Im dealing with severely stubborn comedonal acne.  on my forehead only. Just wondering what solutions have worked for those of you suffering from closed comedones. I just did a huge extraction tuesday, now im waiting for the tiny scabs to heal. Im washing with clean n clear foaming facial cleanser in the morning along with neutrogena stress control 2% salycilic acid toner and neutrogena oil free moisturizer. Same routine at night just switching from that wash to panoxyl 10% bp. Im gna start trying the aspirin mask soon since is salycilic acid too. & exfoliating. Im stickin to salycilic acid cause my this acne completely went away in march, for a whole month n the only thing I was doing was washing with s.a wash. Thats it. One night out with makeup & bangs ruined all my hard work. So whats your solutions or treatment??? What has worked for u??????

Comedonal Acne Or A Skin Condition?

22 June 2013 - 12:11 PM

If youve read my previous posts you kno im dealib g with what i think is extremely stubborn comedonal acne. Is resistant to everything and never gets better. Geys worse in summer & when i sweat. I Actually ended up getting a comedone extractor. I steamed my face, pricked my comedones with a safety pin and extracted the crap inside. Mostyly the big ones cause there too many for me to extract manually. My face is a lot less bumpy now but now im waiting for these tiny scabs to heal. This freakin sucks. Ive got to make an appt with the dermatologist asap. The only thing that had gotten rid of tjis completely was clean n clear foaming facial wash with salycilic acid. So I wanna try the aspirin mask at night. In the morning im washing with clean n clear, toning with neuteogena stress control 2% salycilic acid toner and moisturizing with neutrogena combination oil free moisturizer. Night time is the same but with panoxyl 10% bp wash in stead of clean n clear. But its not doing much help. Anymore tips or advice for this depresses girl??????

Comedonal Acne. Plz Plz Plz Help :(

16 June 2013 - 02:23 AM

If anyone, anyone at all could possibly help me ill be forever grateful! Ive got this stubborn comedonal acne that ive been dealing with off & on for a few years & which flares up in the summer, gets a little better when the weather cools down but never completely goes away. Last year in November I started using the clarasonic to try & get rid of it (acne wasn't half as bad in november as it is now) I used to clarasonic 2 times everyday for 3 months straight with no improvement at all. It actually made me break out in cysts (which I don't really get) the entire time I used it. I stopped using it in feb & was ONLY washing my face with clean & clear face wash day & night & the cysts stopped the same day. Then suddenly in march is just disappeared! I finally after years, had smooth skin on my forehead. I was soooooo happy & confident! Then one night I went out, wore makeup, had my bangs down & was sweating all night & broke out like crazy the very next day :'( & its just gotten worse, way worse since then. I went back to just washing & tried a bp cream. No luck "/ then I tried aha enhanced lotion 10% cause I read it could bring my comedones to the surface & help them go away. Boy was I wrong, again. After 3 days of using it my forehead went nuts! & hasnt gotten better since. Now, literally like EVERY pore on my forehead is a bump. I later read that the aha enhanced lotion has oil in it  which is why it made my face worse. Can anyone help me please or have tips or advice? Its really starting to take a toll on my mentL health. I have 0 confidence & feel so ugly & im really depressed :'( im sorry this is so long but I wanted to add all the details. There's toooooo many comedones for me to manually extract. Not even 10% bp washes or cream get rid of this type of acne on me & idk what to do anymore. These bumps just never go away. No matter what I do. Has anyone had any similar experiences? Im begging you guys please! Thank you in advance!
