Unhappy Help PLEASE!!

I've never in my life had a problem with acne on my forehead until this past year. I don't know what I can do to prevent it!! I'm going nuts. Is there a shampoo out there that could help me? I'm getting the pimples right on my forehead and even all along my eyebrows and between my eyes. Any info would be appreciated!!

ZitZapper,
I have the same problem which just started occurring this year. I have bumps on my forehead some are whiteheads and others have no head. It sucks.
I've tried a ton of products and different shampoo's as well. My head cleared up for a bit when I was on birth control (it took 3 months though) .. I just recently stopped the b/c and I broke out again. I'm washing w/ Ivory Soap now per my derm.'s request and using a gentle oilfree moisturizer.

Let me know how you make out.

Hey I had the EXACT same break out not so long ago and this regime I followed cleared it up perfectly:

1. Apply 10% Benzoyl Peroxide to all areas affected on your forehead. After a few days the bumps should become less.

2. Begin to apply Aloe Vera gel to the affected area to diminish red marks etc.

3. Vitamin A topicals or tablets are SO GOOD for your skin as they cause less sebum to be produced therefore there is a less chance of a break out.

Hope this helps!
Good luck
Vinny

I don't know if this might be causing it but I'm on zenmed derma cleanse with the pills and acne gel. I wonder if this is just my body detoxifying itself(that's what dermacleanse supposedly does) and if I'm going to clear up soon. It's just really frustrating. I think I'm gonna start going tanning too. Just ordered a bunch of b5 too. that's seemed to help in the past.

Hi, i tried the Derma Cleanse about 1 year ago. I used it for about 2 months. I would have to say i have never used anything that has been more useless..lol Their website sure sucks u in though huh. Its great you plan to use B5 i think, it seems alot of people are having at least some success with it. I would not recommend derma cleanse at all. I have also seen alot of other mad people posting on other boards. Goodluck
