This condition occurs to about 5-10% of breakout victims. It is marked by puffy, secreting lesions and may have associated scarring and pitting. It is made worse by makeup and frequent exfoliation (acid peels). Benzoyl peroxide is often used, along with antibiotics. See the REFERENCE TOPICS section to learn more.
Our approach to a satisfactory visible resolution will be to discontinue all current topical products and begin anew.
Note on Benzoyl Peroxide
If you have used benzoyl peroxide for longer than 30 days, it will be necessary to wean your skin from this very destructive chemical. Over the course of another 30 day period, reduce the frequency of application until you reach zero. It is likely you will experience random lesions that do not secrete for up to a year AFTER discontinuing the application of benzoyl peroxide.
