I realllly wanted this topical to work, I was so hopeful after reading the reviews here and this was my last resort before accutane. At first, I combined this with Bactrim DS and my skin looked good, I had no breakouts! But after getting allergic to bactrim and having to continue Klaron on its own, I just never stopped breaking out. My forehead was muchhh better, no more of those painful cysts but my chin, which is my biggest problem area, would get at least one new zit every single morning. It was so depressing and made me not want to leave the house. However, I loved that it wasn't drying and thankfully it didn't make me break out in places that I didn't break out in before i.e. my cheeks. Everyone knows it's scary trying a new product but this seems to be a rather gentle product and it can make your skin tone look smoother so I'd say go for it just to see how it turns out for you! I tried it for 5 weeks and since my breakouts are getting worse, I just can't continue it any more. I'm really hoping I can get on accutane, there just aren't many more options left and acne is like fighting this invisible enemy that you can't control no matter what! Agh!
I have moderate acne mainly pustules and papules with some blackheads. This did nothing for me acne at all after using it for about 2-3 months.
Really try this product. It doesn't give harmful side effects and does not irritate the skin at all.
is anyone worried about the long-term effect of using this product?
I was suffering from a horrible breakout five years ago. I didn't want to leave the house. The OTC products I was using seemed to irritate my skin horribly. The doctor suggested that I may be allergic to Benzoil Peroxide. She sent me on my way with prescriptions for Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% and Sulfur 5% wash and Sulfacetamide Sodium Topical Suspension USP, 10%. I have been using these products for five years now and I have had mostly clear skin the whole time! I only get some stray blackheads or an occasional Small pimple. I also use Cetaphil moisturizer with some sunblock protection. Keeping the skin moisturized helps it heal. I also go easy on the dairy and sugar. I am so happy to clear skin!
The reviews on here really made me want to give this one a shot. I'm female, 31 yrs old with lengthy history of acne now due mostly to hormones. My Derm prescribed the 10% lotion which I apply at night all over my face and neck. The upper half of my face was already clear but this has definitely improved the look and feel of even that part of my skin -after only 4 days. I particularly enjoy the night time application because it seems to severely cut down on getting an oily face at night and it helps the few cystic nodules that remain around my jawline from hurting so much like they do during the day so I can rest comfortably. I am also taking Doxycycline twice daily at 50mg and Clindamycin phosphate 1% lotion for morning spot treatment application before putting on make-up. I don't care how expensive this Sodium Sulfacetamide is - it's completely worth it!
i have no idea why more people dont use this, my derm never even mentioned this i heard about it from these reviews. i am soo glad i started using this its the only thing that clears my face and i have used tazorac, clindamyacin(it worked alright), benzoyl peroxide, salyclic acid, all natural products and more. just try it you will not be disappointed LOVE THIS STUFF
I first started on Sodium Sulfacetamide about 3-4 weeks ago as prescribed by my dermatologist. Specifically, she prescribed me Prascion cleansing wipes (used 2x a day, AM & PM). I was prescribed this in conjunction with Aczone, a sulfide cream.
The results so far have been fantastic. I've suffered with moderate cystic facial and back acne since 15/16 years old (I'm now 22), and I've seen a very large reduction in the inflammation on my back and face.
While I still do get small breakouts, the severity is far less worse than it used to be and the inflammation is also greatly diminished. I have tried a ton of different topical creams and this is truly the only one I've used where I've had fairly consistent results so far. Plus, it is affordable with insurance (wipes only cost me $10.00 at Walgreens).
Highly recommended for anyone with light to even moderately severe acne as another solution is you haven't had any success with any other creams or other oral medications. Much better solution than Accutane without any of the awful side effects (and probably much healthier for your body). I highly recommend!
