What topicals have you tried??

I havent been to the derm in a while because I moved to a different state. But 3 years ago I was last seen and was pretty much on every script known to man (except accutane). I am on yasmin birth control which helps out pretty well, but when I do break out, the acne spots are more moderate and cause scarring. i have also tried retinol, differin, benzymycin (sp?), tazorac, and a ton of over-the counter stuff. Tazorac wroked amazingly for me, so I'd like another prescription for that.

Are there any other new prescriptions for acne products out there such as topicals? I also went on spiro, but my blood pressured dropped too low and that kinda freaked me out.

Re: What topicals have you tried??

Have you ever tried just an aspirin mask? unless you are allergic to aspirin don't try it. If not then it's cheap and it's worth a try. I thought this couldn't work, it's too easy and cheap but finally I tried it and so glad I did. Get uncoated aspirin put a few drops of warm water with a few tablets make into a paste with your fingers and spread on your face. I leave it for 30 min and then wash off and it kind of exfoliates also, the granules are superfine and after I dry, then on the super tough acne spots or areas where I feel a huge zit is about to come out, I will melt a tablet and just put some on those spots and leave overnight......huge difference it made for me. It cleared up my face really well. The acne I had went away 3 times faster and some of the ones coming up never came to a head, they went away. At least it's worth a try, you never know. I won't use anything else ever again. Good luck.
