super dry skin, breaks out

kay don't know what to do anymore so im asking here.

I have really dry skin, and even if i only wash my face in the shower and pat it dry it dries out and flakes. But it isn't always like this. For a couple months i used a wash and it didn't dry out at all. Two years ago i used salicylic acid pads (40% alcohol) and a sulfur treatment and was completely clear for 6 months and rarely dried out.

When I use a face scrub (not for acne), i don't break out but i get clogged pores which are almost as bad.

I switched to a salicylic acid face scrub 3 days ago but it only gave me more clogged pores.

I've been using a moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores for about a month. Still break out.

the ONLY thing that unclogs my pores is the sulfur treatment. But it dries out my skin after a few days and then i get inflamed bumps.

Only my forehead gets inflamed bumps, otherwise.

What to do?
