Acne went dormant.... but is now returning! What do I do?

Recommended Posts

I've been on clindamicin for about a year, and it has worked wonders. No zits for nearly a year. Then two weeks ago I was in a wedding and plastered on makeup- and my chin is breaking out! I have four zits on there currently. What do I do? Spot treating is NOT helping!

I'm afraid I have no advice as to what to do now, but next time you need to wear makeup, try using a mineral foundation with no bismuth in it, such as Everyday Minerals. That's what I wear and it controls the oilies and doesn't cause any breakouts.

Boy do I feel for you. Maybe look into trying an antibiotic for a short time to get it back into its dormant stage?
