What Worked For Me

Recommended Posts

I have had acne since I was 16. I am now 26. I have tried everything. Over the counter stuff and prescription. Over the counter stuff doesnt work. I have tried prescription too (Clyndoxyl) which worked but as soon as I stopped it my acne would come back. My skin was horrible for the past two months with several painful cystic pimples. It even hurt to smile and laugh. I went through the most horrible 2 months of my life. I would get like 5 - 10 new ugly nasty painful pimples every day. I went through such a horrible time. The only thing that saved me was Canesten Topical Antifungal Cream for athelete's foot. My skin got better in a week. It's been 2 weeks now and no new pimples. Now I only have the red marks left. I just wanted to share this with everyone. It really works. Im not sure what's gonna happen if I stop using it though.

This was caused by makeup and CleanStart which I got from Sephora. I went through such a horrible time. The only thing that saved me was Canesten Topical Antifungal Cream for athelete's foot.

um not to burst your bubble here, but most people are looking for something that works longer than 2 weeks.

I was prescribed this for an infected toe blister, but wondered if it could also be used for acne for its anti bacterial properties.

Also hate to be a party pooper but I can clear my skin with most topicals for two weeks but would love to hear if this works for longer than six months?
