Alright, so not only have I noticed an increase in my breakouts, but now my red marks and very possible scarring are worse then ever. Anyone have any tips or accurate names for what I have going on here?

(best i could do with a camera phone)

I've been on Triamcinolone (ointment .1%) for a couple of years now and Tretinoin (cream .05%) for a couple of months, I stopped doing the whole ProActiv thing months ago since it didn't seem to be working, but am now tempted to go on it again since I think the BP was helping fade out my marks? I have no idea what to do anymore, I'm dying here, any help would be greatly appreciated

I've seen that thread and thought about doing it, I'm 50/50 on it because something about scrubbing my face, no matter how gentle, seems risky. But I think I'll go out and buy the supplies I need for that tonight since I'm pretty desperate. Thanks

Don't use scrub if you have active acne. It'll irritate your skin more. Try Eurocin Gel. This is what cleared mine. Right now, my cheeks are all clear and I can then exfoliate, use peels, and whitening products to fade the marks.

But wouldn't the BP from the poractiv lighten my red marks a bit more? Or any BP?

Yeah, my skin always feels even more red and irritated now that I started proactiv again. I have no idea where to even start fixing things

edit: And now I want to try the vitamin b5 thing?? But nothing sounds safe, christ

hey man what really helped for me was doing a weekly glycolic peel.. it removes dead skin so you dnt break out.. you can get a kit for acne from glytone.. it was a lotion, wash and toner... search google for glytone acne kit.. it works !
