HOw bad is your acne?I have mild to moderate...i started Diferin gel 3 wks ago cux the dermo said it would help clean and clear the pore sout help with blackheads and help stay clear of breakouts with continued use..its been 3 wks..definetly better but not 100%..he siad give it 8-12wks..that seems like forever..ehehehhe i have a sample of clenia cream..yes it does have sulfur.which can be drying...did he give u any topical meds...?I'vebeen applying the clenia cream the last 2 nites..seems to work...what other topicals have u tried..?
I have a topical erythromycin 2% solution. Also, he prescribed Amoxocillin but I dont want to use it. I want to give the clenia wash and the erythromycin a shot for a few days, and see if thats enough. I have been on WAYYY too many oral meds that wear off. I have mild-moderate acne in the chin area and around my nose, the whitehead kind so they are annoying. Also, I am East Indian so everything leaves a dark mark which takes forever!!! The clenia smells though...
i was also prescribed the clenia face wash today by my derm. i havent picked it up yet though. she did have me using plexion which made me my face look extremely pale and sickly looking. i'm pretty sure it was from the sulfar in the plexion..i dont have much hope now that i know there is also sulfar in the clenia. she also has me on minocin which seems to be working..i'm kinda scared that everything will come back worse when the minocin prescription runs out though.
I used ita gain last night. Man, it smells! My husband noticed the bad smell from my face afterwards! Bleh! I followed it up with Cetaphil to help the smell as well as the dryness it causes. I think I will use it only at night.
People say that you should use something for a certain amount of time before stopping and saying it doesnt work. But if you just wait, you keep getting more acne, and thus more and more dark marks and scars! I am stopping this stuff!
