Re: Good morning M
Jun 21, 2003
Hi again M

Glad to hear you're watching a movie tonight. Me too. I took my bath and have decided that for right now my skin is way to dehydrated and irritated to use the azelex or anything else. Probably also because I didn't take a break between ending the tazorac and starting the finacea. It just needs a break and I do too. I am breaking out in the irritated areas with the oil filled pimples. Which I don't get rarely but rather all of the time. 80% of my acne seems to be big or small oil filled pimples. I really think its weird. I have never been able to control them and now that I read the other post about how they form because of salicylic acid sometimes, I wonder if glycolic acid can do the same thing?? Dont know about the neutrogena facial cleanser really. Not sure if it will break me out or not.

Emma thanks for the info. Where do you get your oil filled ones?? I've used this for 5 years to b honest I had the problem with the oil filled ones before this and also before the 5 month course of accutane. so I can't say this is what caused it. I tried not using it for about a month and they still came and went, but also I only used water at the time and no cleanser at all. Mostly because I honestly couldn't figure out what to use. My derm likes this because he says it exfoliates the top surface of the skin gently. I've always figured he should know. Have tried the cetaphil once....YUK!! (I should have said up there that glycolic cleanser is what I've used for 5 years. Sorry) :)

Anyway, I am going to continue using the jojoba oil for now. I may spot treat with the neutrogena healthy skin lotion. But no more azelex for awhile. I feel like I'm letting you and D down , M. but I can see how irritated my skin still is tonight and I haven't even used it since Thursday night. I need my skin to get back to having a bit of moisture I guess. Then I'll see. Only thing is, then I'll probably have to start the stupid initial breakout all over again.

Anyway, Thats todays plan, it may change tomorrow, but I just need to take a step back from all of this and breathe. I hope it works for you M and I hope I can say the same sometime.
