Did you ever figure out the cause? This is happening to me.

In Topic: Retin-A Rash?

Looks like it could be mild Perioral Dermatitis. This rash appears on my face too if I use anything overly drying to my skin. If it doesn't clear within a few days, I would consult a doctor about it. A round of antibiotics is needed to clear it.


In Topic: Anyone Ever Experience This?

Thanks pharmteam, I was very apprehensive about putting the cortisone on my face as I've had Perioral Dermatitis in the past... BUT - I was desperate because the clindoxyl gel wasn't working and the rash kept coming back. When I had the same reaction with the cortisone I knew something more serious was going on and to be honest I thought it was my PD returning, recently I caved and went on antibiotics because that's the only thing that ever cures my PD and I'm about half way through the month with decent results but still get some bumps that leak. Interesting to know eczema can be non-itchy, I've literally research my ass off about that and could never find an answer. I'll have to try the neosporin for sure!

In Topic: Nighttime Moisturizer That Does Not Clog Pores

I've been using Cetaphil moisturizing lotion for years. It's lightweight and won't clog pores. In my opinion it's a very simple moisturizer and that's what I like most.

An allergy test seems appropriate. As well, considering you have done rounds of antibiotics taking probiotics or even trying a diet to restore your gut flora might be beneficial. Depending on your age, it might be hormonal and in that case you will out grow it at some point.
