Need some help
Mar 24, 2015
I am an 16years old guy that faces acne. It has started about half of a year ago but i worsen my situasion by scrubbing my skin. I dont think i am on a really bad situation though but i need some advices. I visited a dermatologist 4 weeks ago and the doctor prescribed me a gel of benzoyl peroxide(5%) and erythromycin(3%) and a soap to clean my face twice a day at night and day. So when i started using the gel my face didnt show any side effects but i think ive made a mistake and increased the dosage and then after a week my face started to show flaking itching burning drying. Now that i am using the gel for 4 weeks burning has gone and itching shows up rarely and not bothering me. I still have flaking and drying(drying is not much as it was though). So i need your advices about what to do should i decrease the usage of the gel using daily and should i use it only where the symptoms exist? An another question to make after having my bath my skin mostly on the cheeks seems to be peeling what should i do? And a last one after 4 weeks my face didnt show such an improvement about how much will it take to see the best results?
