My Acne- (and possible allergy)

Recommended Posts

This is a picture of my acne.


It looks better now, because I started that Neutragena (spelling?) advanced system. There's less zits, and it's a lot less red and angry-looking.

How would it be classified (mild? moderate? I know it's not severe- although it sometimes feels that way!)?

I never had a problem with it before, but then about 2 months ago it just got really bad all of a sudden. I think it might be because I started using a new lotion on my dry skin, and that I have a contact allergy to an ingredient in the lotion. I'm thinking this because I used a lotion on my legs, and on one of them I have a red, itchy patch of skin that has flared up badly. Maybe the lotions have an ingredient in common that I'm allergic to. I don't know. The new thing I'm doing is working, and I've stopped using the lotion, so that's maybe why it cleared up. It also might be hormonal, but I'm not sure.
