We all differ in our choice of cleanser,like you've been told in other posts you've asked.

You need a very very mild cleanser for that type of Condition.

Dont use an acne based product cause you dont have 'Acne' .

The Calmin range of products would suit your condition.

What did your doctor say to use again?

he said use hydrocortisone (Steroid) and ive been reading around the net and its a treatment for SD, BUT one of the "causes" of SD is oily skin, which i have, so im looking to buying a gentle cleaner that will get rid of this oil! biggrin.gif/

Hydrocortisone is a white based cream to reduce redness.I've used it before when I had it prescrived by my doctor and was very effective I must say.

If the over production of oil is the cause of your condition,then regardless of what cleanser you use, the production of oil will still happen in excess until the underlying problem is solved.

With SD the use of harsh cleansers wouldnt be advised ,hence not using products for acne.

What cleanser did ur doctor say to use?

he didnt mention a cleanser he said get exfoliant dove soap and scurb the red areas 8-[ 8-[ 8-[

i just need a cleanser because i think the oil on my face is from a non clean face, since i dont use soap or a cleanser its left dirty and creates oil

i remember i was not oily last summer, then i stopped washing my face for an experiment ( :-# ) then it got oily

water isnt cutting it, i need a recommended gentle cleanser like everyone else

when i apply bp on at night, the parts i put it on seems tight and flaky, the rest of my face is fine(not dry) so no bp = not dry...only later on in the day it gets oily...if i use oily of olay on the dry parts it feels fine but i think it adds to the oil

You shouldnt be using BP at all when u have SD........BP is for Acne.

Ok I think what would suit you is Cetaphil® Gentle Cleansing Bar.

A soap-free bar for head-to-toe cleaning.

Cetaphil® Gentle Cleansing bar is a gentle, non-alkaline, non-soap bar designed for dry, sensitive skin that moisturizes as it cleans. It is free of harsh detergents that might dry or irritate your skin. This bar is ideal for all-over body cleansing in the bath or shower and is available in a 4.5-ounce bar.

Its cheap and lasts for ages.Will clean the skin very well and not leave it dry and Im pretty sure it will help you with the oil aswell.

Wash morning and night with it and use nothing else on the skin.

Plain and simple.

Try this anyway and let me know how you get on.

I think its the right type of facial wash for you.

Heres a link so you will know what it looks like :-

Its the one at the bottom,dont get the anti-bacterial one.

What?.........

Oh yes,the hydrocortisone cream,I forgot u were using that.

Hmmmm....it does have a tendency to make the skin look oily when using it but at the same time is excellent for redness.

Continue to use it if you wish ya.

The cleanser I recommended will help you,and then apply the cortisone cream afterwards.Im pretty sure though the cortisone is making it look oily,I found that when I used it but it was effective for redness so I didnt mind.

Heres another bar suitable for your condition :-

Its no problem.

Well I would avoid soap altogether as it will only make ur condition worse.

You need a very gentle soap free facial wash like the Cetaphil Gentle Bar.

I'd try that one for a start,its cheap anyway so you cant go wrong like.

With Dermatitis it can have a very dandruffy look on the face and thats what needs to be controlled,that look.

The Cetaphil bar might just be gentle enough to keep a balance in your skin while really cleaning it well aswell.

Theres also the Cetaphil Extra gentle skin cleaner...the liquid one,but Ive tried that and it seems to create a residue on the face after a period of time ,I didnt like it to be honest.

I think use the bar and the cortisone to see how you get on.e

No the cleanser in the pump bottle is aimed more at the acne type person.I think it would be too harsh maybe for you.

I think we'll go with the Cetaphil Gentle Bar for a start and see how you get on.If that doesnt work we'll go from there and see.I've many ideas,it just depends on what level of cleanser your skin can handle.

The bar is a good level to start with anyway.

i read the instructions

u can use with or without water

if u use with water, u rinse it off after

if u use without water u just wipe the left over white layer off

for me, there is no layer to wipe off at the end

so arent using water and not using water a huge difference

since using water rinses some cetaphil off whereas not using leaves it all on?
