So, I went to the doctors again after my Differin wasn't doing much and she gave me Epiduo. It has ruined my skin, I should have just waited until my hospital appointment. Anyway, I have used Epiduo once two days ago, used tiny bits on my affected areas (forehead, chin & cheeks) and my face burns, peels and looks horrendous. I have decided to use it every three days to try and stop the peeling as much as I can, so tonight I will be using it. I will also be moisturising after use as I didn'
After two uses there is not much change except my skin is still dry and now it’s started to peel. I put loads of aloe Vera and Simple moisturiser on everyday and use Differin on the days I’m not using Epiduo. Skin was very red this morning after showering
So, I have used Epiduo 4 or 5 times now, I’m still only putting it on every 3 days anddd my face has, to say the least, reacted. I think this is the purge part of the process starting as I have new spots all over along with the dry skin and flaking, although this has calmed down a bit now. I will use it again tonight and see how my face reacts, hopefully it will calm down soon
The dryness is back. My skin is really flakey and it is making it really hard to wear make up without it cracking and looking horrible. Really don't want to leave my house but trying my hardest to keep the dryness down. Spots are still there but not as angry.
Used it 7 times now and my skin is breaking out all over the place with big under the skin cycstic spots, they have all come at the same time too. I really hope they go down before the end of this week, I have an event to go to. I have switched moisturisers which seems to have stopped the dryness, which is good!
So..I think it might have been my moisturiser that was making my skin break out, I have stopped using it and my face seems to of calmed down. I still have the horrible under the skin spots and a lot of redness.
