Well, I have only been using the azeleic acid 15% for two weeks so I can't comment well on that, but I have used MD forte glycolic cleanser for about 4 - 5 years now. I guess I like it but don't leave it on too long or it will burn a bit. It will make your face a little pink and tends to exfoliate gently, but when my skin is very dry from the topicals it seems a bit too harsh. Haven't changed to another cleanser because I wouldn't know what to try. Do you have acne that comes "out" easily?? Or is it "under the skin" for awhile?? I have had some under the skin for approx 4 -5 months or so. What a nightmare..they just sit there and look red and feel hard. I guess that's why he's trying the azeleic acid, to kill bacteria and bring them up quicker. Just another in a LONG line of topicals I've tried.
