In Need of Some Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, first time post- wish I came to this site long ago. Anyway, I got off isoretinoin (Claravis, 80 mg daily for 5 months) about 10 months ago. Unfortunately, my acne is starting to creep back. Another problem is that my skin is still pretty sensitive from the treatment. The good news is that the new acne is not nearly as bad as it used to be and I think it would respond well to some sort of treatment. My question is what kind of over the counter treatment could I use considering that my skin is still really sensitive (All i'm using right now is a gentle cleanser and a moisturizer)? I would greatly appreciate any advice, and my sincerest apologies if this topic has been addressed before. Thanks in advance!

Make sure your cleanser has no active ingrediant. If you don't want to irritate your entire face due to its sensativity get a 10% BP and only use it as a spot treatment.
