Re: Good morning M
Jun 21, 2003
I feel so bad for you guys, I really don't know what to say. It's almost like the both of you have tried to many different things that your skin's PH is totally out of whack and everything you put on your face is going to irritate it. When I went from Retin A Micro to Azelex, there was about 8 weeks in between where all I used was 2.5% BP, 2.5% salisylic acid face wash along with B5 pills to try to get my face somewhat back to square one. Like M said, the first few nights of the Azelex left a burning sensation and the first night I wound up rinsing it off after 20 minutes. But now, I can honestly say that there hasn't been a big one in quite a while, the little ones are drying up, and I just have the tiny oiled filled ones which sometimes dry up and sometimes come to a head and then go away. I am mainly working on getting rid of some left over red marks and trying to keep the little ones from showing up. I've done some research on salisylic acid and the face wash I was using from Neutrogena. The first ingredient is water, of course, but the next one is a base for detergents and shampoos and the following one is a derivitive of cococonut oil. I also read that the tiny filled bumps can be a reaction to salisylic acid, so I quit using that last night and started using Brevoxyl (BP base) cause now that I remember, when I was using Triaz (BP base) face wash I didn't have any little oily bumps but it was too drying. I'm hoping this makes a difference in the bumps. I'm also just going to use it at night and keep using the Plexion in the morning. I guess what I am saying is read and try to figure out what you used when your skin was improving. I think if I was you guys, I'd try nothing but maybe some B5, zinc and spring water on my face for a week and see if it makes a difference. Just a suggestion, but I don't see how it could hurt.
