What do you use to treat your adult acne?
I never had pimples as a teenager, but now, in my almost 30s, I am breaking out every other day. I tried proactiv, which worked beautifully for about two weeks and then suddenly I developed an allergy or reaction to it. It makes my entire face puffy and swollen and my eyes also swell shut. I have stopped using it, but still have breakouts. My doctor prescribed me a liquid clindamycin, which also doesn't cut it. Anyone else with sensitive and fair skin with this problem? I'd love some advice from hubbers!
Sounds like you are sensitive to the benzoyl peroxide in proactive. I think your skin would best tolerate cleansers if you rotated then daily. Switch from a sulfur- bases cleaner to a salicyclic acid cleanser to a benzoyl peroxide cleaner from night to night. Often times our skin gets used to one product or develops a reaction to a product if used routinely... So change it up!

Hope you are still having a nutritional and hydrated diet. You can try to use nano-silver creme as antibiotic as it is clear, unscented and really works to kill bacteria quickly. It is available at Walgreen's- I just recently found it and my granddaughter loves using it! The one I used was by Curad. $6.99 for a tube.
