Post Inflammatory Erythema

Recommended Posts

I've had acne for about 2 years now and i haven't really done anything about it (only washed face with wet towel, no chemical face washes). However, i got sick of it so i decided to start using face washes.

I've been using salicylic acid face wash, toner, and gel moisturizer in that order twice and day. I don't really get much pimples anymore so for the most part, my skin is relatively flat. However I have these red areas on my skin and some of these are small red bumps. It covers all of my cheeks, temples, nose, neck, around my mouth, and my forehead. 

It pretty much makes my face look entirely red. How do I get rid of it?

It's PIE from the acne / sali wash. Try to stop using the sali wash and see if it stops, could also be your moisturizer. The natural way to deal with them is honey and aloe vera. Or triple antibiotic cream. Please read about PIE in the skin section and PIE of the below faq in my signature.
