i have stopped using the benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin all over, and instead just apply it to new spots, which seems to work, as i have minimal new spots nowadays. i am still washing with green people foaming face wash twice daily with a heat sterilized flannel.
unfortunately i still have quite a few scars, which will take a while to fade. but i am planning to just leave them to heal with time, as i think i have done too much damage to my skin over the past year or so by trying to make things better with harsh solutions, so i think it's best to just be patient now. fortunately the scars aren't that noticable when the sky is overcast !
