Md Forte Ii
Sep 11, 2005
Hello All,

Its been a while since I've been on these boards because I had my acne figured out for a while. Now I need help again! I finally got my stubborn cystic breakouts under control with apple cider vinegar (thanks for that advice), cetaphil antibacterial cleanser, and differin. I was still getting some small pimples, though, and my dermatologist recommended MD Forte II. I had never used glycolic acid before. Its been 1 and a half months since I started using this twice a day and my cystic acne is back! Not only am I breaking out again but the pimples are really red and irritated like they used to be when I used benzol peroxide as a teenager. I thought it was an initial breakout but it seems too long for that. Has anyone had similiar experiences with this stuff or other glycolic acid? I went off of it for 2 days to help my skin recover and it is slowly healing up now. I wonder if I should try it again after it heals up or if my skin is just telling me it doesn't like it?

Let me know what you think!
