Is there anything that can help me?

Recommended Posts

I've been annoyed by acne for several years now, but it seems I'm finally growing out of it - or medication has it under control. Right now I'm only using topical "Differin" cream and pledgettes before bed and I only seem to get 1-2 whiteheads at a time.

But my problem has to do with dry skin as a result of the medication, I'm a swimmer and the chlorine is enough to inflame my sensitive skin. The differin makes it dry to the point of peeling - not as bad as, say, peeling from a sunburn - but more of a residual peel. As I've started started shaving, my skin gets fairly dry around the mouth/chin/cheeks, and my back, chest and neck just seem to get inflamed from the medication and chlorine.

For several weeks I've been using an Aveeno daily moisturizer, but from what I can tell, it only really prevents immediate peeling, and doesnt help with red, inflamed skin.

So I was wondering if there was a good chance my dermatoligist would be able to remedy something like this, I'd ask her myself but I have to schedule appointments weeks in advance.

Thanks for your time,(to nobody in particular)
