The Basics



I've dealt with acne since I was 11, basically for 4 years. I remember when it started off with 1 pimple turning into 5 then soon enough my whole face. My whole face is red, it has calmed down more recently, with clogged pores, hyper pigmentation, black heads, white heads and pimples. What's weird is my left side of my face has pimples than my right. Does anyone know the reason for that? On occasion I'll get a cyst on my chin or cheek. It's been a struggle trying to clear my skin. A lot of products make my acne worse and when I find a good product it only works for so long. I guess you could say my acne fluctuates. I've been to a dermatologist and been prescribed several things. I have noticed an improvement even if it isn't a huge difference. I stopped taking my pills orally as well as switching epiduo to duac ( I don't know if that's what it's called) . I had to stop using duac because of the redness it was causing. Naturally my skin is pretty pink but the benzoyl peroxide really made my skin red. I think my skin is sensitive as well as acne prone and oily. How do you know if your skin is sensitive anyways?
