Discussions that mention benzaclin

Acne board


Thanks for your quick response. In a moment of inspiration, I went to the store last evening and bought a bunch of low-GL type foods (mostly vegetables) and have committed to follow through with this for two weeks, under the theory being that even if it doesn't help, it really can't hurt. I know it won't be easy -- I haven't really done much in the way of food preparation for several years now (mostly just ate out of a microwave box).

If you don't mind, I'm curious about what you do in terms of daily washing, etc. My acne would probably be categorized as fairly mild to moderate (only occassional cysts, mostly papules and whiteheads, especially prevalent on the forehead). I've been using benzaclin (BPO and clindimcyin) and differin for a while now, and although the differin seemed to be helping with the forehead, I've broken out with a vengeance once again. I have rather sensitive skin, and I'm beginning to think that all of these products, while somewhat efficacious, are themselves contributing to the problem -- 2 steps forward, 2 steps back, if you will.

I've been tempted to just give them up altogether, but the fear of a huge breakout is keeping me from doing so. Perhaps weaning myself off them slowly is the best solution?
