Sodium sulfacetamide and initial breakout

I've been using a sodium sulfacetamide lotion for about 2 weeks now and I've noticed that my acne is worse than it was before I started. I tried searching for information on it causing an initial breakout but I couldn't find much on that, so I was wondering if anyone has had it happen to them in the past or if it's actually just a bad reaction I'm having to the stuff?

Good question. I just started using Plexion cleansing cloths 2 days ago (which is sodium sulfacetamide and sulfur) and I've gotten more breakouts as well. So while I don't have an answer, you're not alone.

ive use it for a month and my skin is worse than before. i am stopping completely and going back to the dermatologist. i find that if it works for most people, it does not work for me. salycylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc.
