It's been a couple years, still dry...

I'm on a 5% bp 3% erthromycin mix and despite using about 5 layers of moisturizer I'm still really dry, flaking, and wrinkling in weird ways. I've been thinking of switching to just 2.5% bp, will going to a lower dose make me break out? Every time I break out I get red marks that last at least a year so I'm not really keen on the idea of experimenting but something has to change. Sould I try switching to 2.5%? Or should I just try something else like an oral drug?

You could definately try moving down to 2.5% BP, but if this regimen hasn't worked at all in years, then it is probably time to try something else!
