I've been using dermadoctor for a while now, It's excedingly better than using Benzoyl Peroxide, for those who don't know what I'm talking about. Here it is!

intensive medicated blackhead treatment

every now and then, which contains Retinol which is what a lot of dermatologists prescribe for Acne.

* Maximum strength 2% salicylic acid (BHA), to unplug pores and treat acne.

* Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Glycine provides astringent benefits, rapidly improving the appearance of blackheads and pore size.

* Retinol and glycolic acid to keep pores clean and clear.

* Advanced polymer technology soaks up excess surface oils, yet won't leave skin parched.

Now my reasoning for posting this is because I have a few questions

I start off my regimen with the cleanser, then I put on the serum and then sometimes I'll also use the blackhead treatment, using the blackhead treatment and serum at first actually increases my acne for about a week or 2 when I start to reuse it, if I ever stop. It brings small white heads up and gets rid of them quickly

The Serum is a god send when it comes to cystic acne, It speeds up the process incredibly and it also helps bring it to a very small pin point head rather than a large white head that consumes the entire lesion, its very easy to pop and there is no real scaring, just a small hole that shrinks up after about a week. I've found this to be extremely effective so I highly suggest using these things.

After about a month of using this regimen my acne seems to subside, but if I continue to use it like I always do my skin begins to produce excessive amounts of oil so I stop using my regimen which causes new blackheads to appear, which then cause cysts to appear after a while. So my question is, what do I do about the reoccuring blackheads after I MUST stop my regimen. Should I switch to just a simple soap based cleanser instead of the intensive stuff since its already done its job? Should I go to a dermatologist to get some anti-biotics?

I don't really know because I just went through a good 2 month period with no real acne but now I'm starting to get a few cysts, so I have to start up my regimen again. I need something for inbetween to keep it at bay but the stuff I use is to powerful to use for too long.

I've been icing my new cysts and it seems like its helping a bit.

uhh... why?

Because it has nothing to do with the acne.org regimen, and contains no questions about the regimen. It's your own regimen.

This is an over the counter acne medication forum. Self-explanatory. Of all the other forums, where do you think YOUR OWN regimen fits best? Certainly not in the acne.org one.
