Hi I have a question about sweating and working up while using topical acne medicine? I use azelex (in the morning) and I often work out a couple hours later and sweat a ton. Is this not good? Does it mess up the medicine bc the sweat washes away the medicine or if it's a couple hourse after you put it on, is it okay?
Also is sweating in general cause acne? I play sports in college and I workout every day sweating a lot..does it cause acne? And even if I shower 1 hour later?
Thank you in advice I would REALLY appreciate advice, especially on the first question because I am trying to get rid of my redmarks and I want to know if the azelex will get screwed up with the working out..thanks you!!
So if I put it on at like 10 am and i work out at like 3 or 4ish i should reapply it? How about if its at night? My doc told me to use it once a day but i think thats because i am using differin at night so i dontthink yuo can use azelelx AND differin before going to bed....I wonder if putting it on in the morning then afternnon/dinner time would work?
Yes you can probably put it on at 3 or 4 and then still use the diffren at night
I use the azelex one in the morning once after workingout and then use benzamycin at night.Azelex is mild your face wont peel off.
Thanks for the info...So what's the latest I should put on the azelex BEFORE i put on my differin for the night..like how many hours before. And one more question - what about tanning and the sun with Azelex? I will be in the sun a lot and before i started taking azelex i have a pretty good base tan and i dont burn easily..what affects does sun and tanning have with azelex?
I would say about 4 hours minimum so you dont get irratated by the diffren,
I also used diffren in the past .And many other meds and topicals too so if you have any questions feel free. Yes you can tan with azelex its fine doesnt make you photosensitive.I am in the sun alot and its fine.Acutally derms prescribe this alot to patiens who live in warmer sunny climates.
how does sweating clog pores? for one sweat comes out of a sweat duct. It comes to the surface onto the skin. Please show me a link or explain how sweat clogs pores. its almost like saying water clogs pores.
