Azelaic Acid

I am using Azelaic acid 20% (Finevin) which is a topical.I am also on oral erythromycin 500mg once a day,but I don't think it is helping.I do think that the azelaic acid is helping, my skin was alot smoother until a couple of days ago.Now I have tiny bumps,they are not pimples.I have been using both products for over a month, so I don't think it is an allergic reaction, or maybe I'm wrong. Please Let me know what you think or what I should do about this...

My regimen is- Rinse face w/water in morning (due to increased oilness from azelaic acid).
Wash face w/Dove for sensitive skin at night,then apply azelaic acid.
I also taking erythromycin 500mg orally once a day for now,but am going to stop when bottle is empty.Don't think it is helping...

Re: Azelaic Acid

I think you should wait it out a few more weeks. Although I have never tried it, it seems I have heard good things about azelaic acid. Are you a girl? Maybe consider spironolactone the next time you go to the dermatologist. It's made me clear after 2 weeks along with a 20% BP gel made by my derm. Is this the first topical and antibiotic you have tried? If it still isn't improving after another month, I would change your medicines.
