  1. Thanks for the glycolic acid suggestion. I'll look into it. I've been shaving every day for about a year and only recently have I gotten this much acne. I'm also really unsure how to prevent ingrown hairs. I usually use a facial scrub before shaving, a new razor every few days, aloe shaving cream, and an aftershave afterwards. Does anyone have any other suggestions for prevention? Should I try using an electric razor?
  2. Yes, this is only on one side of my face. The other side of my face is clear. I've also suspected it may be ingrown hairs, but if that was the case, why would this only happen on one side? Yes, I have gone to a dermatologist, but can't pick up the medications (antibiotics and BP) at the moment because I don't have my insurance card with me. I'll have to wait a few months to do that...
  3. I've been getting moderate-severe acne in the past few months and I've been desperate for some way to alleviate it. For the past few weeks I've been using Oxy Daily Defense cleansing pads which contain 2% salicylic acid. I apply them around 2-3 times per day. However, they just seem to be making the acne worse and worse. I'm not sure whether this is purging or simply my skin begging me to stop.
