It's been a little over 2 weeks now that I've been using Epiduo, and the dryness has eased up a bit. It's still really dry but I just have to moisturize really good. Also, it has given me a very painful, very itchy, very red rash on my chest. Like it's uncontrollably itchy and has been for about 2 days now and it seems like my skin is tearing off.....which is not good. It seriously looks disgusting and it's freaking me out that it's not going to go away. Soooo.....I'm gonna stop using it on my c
Alright, so I've officially been using this stuff for a week. After the first 4 days, I had to change my cleanser and completely stop using it on my face at all because it was making my face so dry, flaky, and irritated that no matter how much I moisturized, it just wouldn't stop flaking. So that made it really hard to wear makeup without looking completely gross. But I continued to use it on my body acne. It seemed like my face got a little clearer but I think that mostly had to do with the tim
Just wanted to say how much it sucks to have body acne. Face acne is horrible, but body acne is so much more uncommon and it makes it feel like people are judging you way more about it. It's a constant stuggle to find anything to wear every morning because all my old clothes I can't wear because they will expose. I feel like all I can wear are sweaters and it's frustrating, especially in the California heat. I just want to find a solution to this......
Here's a little background fo the things I've tied and what I think of them. 1) Over-the-counter (Nuetrogena, Clearisil, Clean and Clear) - Honestly, they all work the same for me. Nothing changes, they just keep me steady at my moderate acne. 2) Proactiv - Terrible. Dried out my skin so bad to the point where I could not even keep it from flaking no matter how much I moisturized. And it did nothing to clear my acne. But whenever I stopped using it, I began to break out worse. Whoopee.
Okay, so I have officially started Epiduo today. I applied it everywhere on my body where I have acne. (which is almost literally everywhere. Back, neck, chest, face, parts of legs) And we will see how this goes. I've tried so many things and have struggled with acne for too long (from around 13 to now, 21) so wish me luck!
