There's this face wash made by noxzema called triple clean. I'm using it right now. It got a 5 star rating from drugstore.com It contains triclosan triclosan which is an antibacterial. I'm having good results with it. But I haven't used it long enough to reccomend it.

I am using a anti microbial cleanser called Chloroxylenol. It is found in Provon medicated lotion soap. I am even seeing the red splotches go away with this product.

Tea Tree Oil...you can buy face washes, lotions, as well as just the regular oil, which you can add to anything you want.

I've been using a tea tree lotion called Derma e Tea Tree & E Antiseptic creme. It works well for me, doesn't irritate or clog pores (though it does contain several different oils). Yes, tea tree is supposed to be just as effective as bp at killing bacteria, and for me it hasn't had the side effects I had with bp.

Something else I'm going to check out is neem soap. Can be hard to find, but the extract of the neem plant is supposed to be very antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, etc., great for the skin.

Good luck!!!

I just started useing this product.  my mom suggested useing an antibacterial soap. The only two I found were this Noxema and Stridex.  So I started with Noxema cause it has .3% triclosan compared to the 1% in Stridex (I figured Id start with the gentler).

Im soo hopeful!  eusa_pray.gif
