Unhappy Proactive just STOPPed working

Hello all,
About a year ago, while loaded on cough medicine, I called and ordered Proactive. Within a week, I saw heaven.
I mean I would only get 2 zits during that time of the month, and its the minor type, the ones you pop at night, dab on some iodine, and wash it off tomorrow morning, people wont even tell.
Its been a year, very loyal and faithful. My oily skin is oily no more, and even the cheeks feels like porcelain to the touch.
Then,
................
if the acne before the Practive was a battle, now is ALL OUT WAR.
We are talking about waking up to 2 new pimples everyday, the ones with pus, blod and swells up the size of Mars.
What happened???
I didn't change a thing?!?

Re: Proactive just STOPPed working

I have heard that it is good to take a break from pro-activ and then start it up again. I don't remember the intervals for the break. Like maybe every 3 months, take a week off or something. Just because you've had a relapse doesn't mean that it won't work again. Good luck.

im sure this is the response she was looking for
*snickers*



anyway, yeah that happened to me a year ago. so i stopped using it. (and i broke out more from not using it). its a price you have to pay for excellent skin the rest of the time. i took a month off, and then went back on, and it worked just as good as at first time.
i personally think its worth it because nothing else works nearly as well. it sucks that one month out of the year i have to have bad skin.
