hello everyone.
i am suffering from severe acne breakout. it all started one month ago. i never had any acne issues and my skin use to be clear,but now its all ruined. one side of my face is worse than the other. before pimple appears my face will start to itch and then a zit will pop up. these pimples are extremely painful even when i talk and move my face i can feel the pain. they are extremely red and very very very itchy.
i have tried salicylic acid , retinoid, benzoyal peroxide, oral antibiotics as well. i eat fruit  and vegetables and dont eat any junk food. i have eliminated dairy from diet . i have stopped using all makeup products and otc face washes etc. 
i have booked an appointment with dermatologist but thats after 15 days. kindly help me out. i cant tolerate this pain .i t has lowered down my confidence as well.5ad3fd196e1fd_image1(1).thumb.jpeg.f2cf5ed9b563f57919087a13f88b607d.jpeg5ad3fd196e1fd_image1(1).thumb.jpeg.f2cf5ed9b563f57919087a13f88b607d.jpegimage1.thumb.jpeg.f8fe5c8391a18a19361402eb1dbe8b80.jpegbefore.thumb.jpg.1194a38edb3eb1d8b98978cb6659cb8b.jpg

i thought itching was an indication of a type of rash? (like folliculitis?).

how old are you? if your young, it could be a hormonal problem but if an adult and it came on suddenly, it might point to something else.

for now, i would avoid any harsh products and try something which would smooth your skin like sudocrem, until you see your dermatologist.

-imo a lot of products like 
benzoyal peroxide and others creams / acne washes can make more problems then they are worth.
