  1. Thanks for the info. I'll stick with the cetaphil cleanser for a little while longer.
  2. Ok, I wrote this once but I'm not sure it posted. Can anyone suggest a cleanser that won't overdry my face? I've tried the purpose bar and cetaphil bar but both were overdrying. I'm using the cetaphil gentle cleanser now and it gets my make up off but it feels like there is a film or oil left on my face. Does anyone else feel this? Is it just the moisturizer of the cleanser? Someone help
  3. Thanks for your help. I'll give the Azalex a little longer and then maybe I'll try the multivitamin. I'll definitely update if I do use it. I am happy to say that I've been on the regimen for a month and have not had any new cysts appear and am clear!!!! :D/
  4. How long does it take for the red spots to disappear if I am using the Neutrogena multivitamin moisturizer? My dermo prescribed Azalex to help the dark spots fade but I'm wondering if the neutrogena would work quicker.
  5. I live in the U.S. and I have been to numerous Wal-marts, Targets, K-marts and I cannot seem to find the Eucerin Renewal Alpha Hydroxy moisturizer. Can anyone tell me where to find it? Thanks
  6. Can you apply the hydrocortisone cream over the bp? Does it lessen the effectivness of the bp? Do you only apply the cream at night?
  7. Can you apply the hydrocortisone cream over the bp? Is it easy to put make up on over the cream? How often did you apply the cream and what is the benefit of icing? Sorry for a million + 1 questions, I'm trying to stay away from injections. Thanks
  8. I forgot to put this in my last post. I have been using the regimen for a week now and I was wondering how long should I wait before I start using Eucerin as my moisturizer? Is this more effective and more gentle than the other moisurizers you have recommended? Thanks again
  9. I've been getting injections for the past year. My acne used to be on both sides of my jaw area and now has moved from there to my chin. I have had numerous injections in my chin over the past month. I do not have any concave areas but my dermo does not want to give me any more injections for fear of possibly creating a concave spot. It is my understanding that you can only have so much steroid injected into a certain area. They do work great though. I had accepted the fact that I would be
  10. I've been on the regimen for a week now. I was using bp on my entire face but my only problem area is my chin so I've cut back and now I only use it there. I'm not sure how much bp to use. I've been using half a finger lengths worth but it dries my face out so much. I use Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin on my whole face but it just seems like my chin is dry all the time. How much bp would you recommend using on this little area? I also want to thank you for this webs
  11. If I put the moisturizer on before the bp, do I still wait the 15 minutes before I apply the bp or can I wait only 5-10? Is this effective because the original regimen from Dan says to wait 15 min. before applying the bp so that the pores can close. Do I want to put the moisturizer on while the pores are open? Will this lead to clogged pores? Just wondering before I try this. Thanks!
  12. I had a cyst coming in on my chin last week and all I did was put extra bp on that area and it stopped it from becoming a full blown cyst. It will probably dry out your nose though so use a lot of moisturizer on that area. I saw a post recommending applying the moisturizer before the bp so this should help if you have a problem with being shiny after using the moisturizer. Hope this helps! Congrats on being free! :(/
  13. Thanks Dr. Miracle for posting this! :(/ I have been having the same problem with my face being too shiny using the moisturizer after the bp and have said that my face looks better before I put the moisturizer on. I'll have to try this. I've only been using bp for a week and my chin is starting to sting with the bp, will applying the moisturizer before the bp lessen the stinging?
  14. Thanks Ani for the help. I noticed that Dan recommended not using Eucerin while beginning with the BP, how long should I wait before I start using it? Is/was your acne only in a certain area? If so, how much BP did you use for that area? I just don't want to use too much if that's possible. :-s
  15. I tried it and it didn't work. All it did was make my pimple more red because of the cold.
