  1. I went to the doctor because I have mild comedonal acne He gave me stieva-a to apply in the morning and and night I have been for two weeks and the comedones are clearing up but I noticed I am getting some on my upper cheeks now is that normal? Before I went on this I was using Cetaphil Cleanser Benzoyl Peroxide 5 percent Complex 15 The doctor told me to get off the bp and keep the cetaphil and complex 15.. And I've been using tea tree oil to spot treat. Also I've been on bp for a year and
  2. Hello. I just recently went to the doctor (general practitioner) about my skin. He said I had really mild acne and diagnosed it as closed comedones. He gave me this Stieva-a Tretinoin 0.1% Cream to apply after I wash my face and before I go to bed. Said in three weeks come see him. So I am basically doing this every night/morning. Cetaphil cleanser then pat dry Stieva-a Tretinoin 0.1% Cream Complex 15 Moisturizer (IF needed) Then spot treat any red marks with tea tree oil. Thing is, I h

  6. When I stretch my skin I have white bumps that appear, and can only be seen when I stretch it, They eventually turn into zits one by one, what is this and how can I treat it? PS this is only around my mouth/chin area, Thanks.
  7. Hey, so I've been using a routine, I posted something similar to this in the regime part of this forum and I didn't get the right answers possibly because this is where I should have posted it anyways... So I have been using the following routine since the end of June. Products Cetaphil face wash Clean and Clear 5 Complex fifteen moisturizer In the morning I get out of the shower and let my skin dry then apply cetaphil and then let that dry. Then apply clean and clear 5 which is benzoyl pe
  8. Alright thanks, because I don't have that bad of skin. I used to last year and I just started using benzoyl peroxide and it helped ALOT. Then after a year of use I started getting little white bumps around my mouth that I could only see when I stretched my skin, after a duration of time they turn into zits. Then it will clear up and then come back. It is weird and I don't know what to do about it. Thanks for the input.
  9. Thanks, so what I'm doing for my skin isn't bad? (like the whole routine)
  10. actually you can use cetaphil with or without water. just rub a little on the skin, then wipe it off. they have waterless instructions on the bottle.
  11. Alright, I'm new to this thing, and I didn't know where to post this. But, I need to know if I'm doing something wrong. This is my routine. In the morning I get out of the shower let my face dry then put cetaphil on my face, then let it dry and then put clean and clear five (5 percent benzyol peroxide) then moisturize. And before bed I do the exact same thing. I have been doing this for about a month. It really hasn't changed anything.
