i got some nutrogena salicylic acid 2% im trying now. makes me much less dry than the bar, but skin looks horrible with scars still and active whiteheads/acne.

Not always medicine is the best way to cure acne. Sometimes it just makes everything worse. Read my success story, maybe you'll find something useful.
