What do any of you think I should try next? My acne consists mosltly of small red bumps, but they are numerous in their localised areas (mainly on forehead and sides), and nonexistant in others (cheeks, nose, etc). In the past, BP and tretinoin worked but stopped working after four years; so 7-8 weeks ago I switched to Tea Tree soap washing 3x per day, and Salycilic 0.5% twice per day (in the morning and before bed). I wash in the afternoon also, because my skin gets really oily already by then.
There is a small improvement with the SA against larger pimples since they aren't really able to form, but the small acne are constantly still there and "reproducing", i.e. not steadily vanishing. Almost always in the same areas.
I've heard that SA can be used up to 3x per day, but I'm afraid it could do more harm then good (drying the skin, etc).
[ I always eat really healthy, no junk, etc. I change pillowcases every few days, excercise normally, and generally live real healthy.]
