Thought you’d like to hear how it goes w my son. His face was clearer this wkend, but like most of us, the red marks make it hard to tell just how improved. He had only a couple of bumps this a.m.- as opposed to the dzs which were becoming normal. The red marks are so sad, they are so disfiguring, and this is in a young kid that has only had acne for about 4 mos. They do go away, right? I don’t know if “what” he is using is what’s working, or the fact he’s doing something regularly. I sometimes think just keeping up a good fight with anything clears us. So, he washes w Olay’s skin-clearing cloths 3 xs a day, takes 4 – 6 gs of B5 when he remembers, applies Tazorac everynight, and either BP or Sulphur every morning, or not, if he’s too dry from the taz. So we’ve got the dilemma of not really knowing where to give the credit, since he’s using different things. I am pretty sure the BP and Sulphur aren’t doing much since he used those before- they help eliminate some oil and bacteria, but not completely clear him. I suspect the credit goes to the Taz and maybe a little to B5- he hasn’t been on B5 long enough… about one month on Taz & 2 wks of consistent B5. So there you have it, and I worry if he stops working at it, that’ll it’ll all come back. Now someone encourage me and tell me the red marks do go away- please.
