  • Wash your face?

  • They sound like cystic acne. I used to have them before I started using Unblemish by Rodan+Fields. They are the same Doct's who created Proactiv. It has a sulfer base mixed w/botanicals so it is more gentle than the proactiv. This issue will not resolve with out med's. Not with over the counter products.
    These are RX med's, just alittle below rx strength. Thats how they can sell them without a prescription. This is the way the dr's are bringing to office home to you!

  • Sounds weird but Put Tooth paste on it before you go to bed.. and it should bring everything to the surface!!! YOu might have to do this a couple nights before you can get all the nasty stuff out.. LOL

  • Yeah the toothpaste works, and Im sure you wash your face. I wash my face twice a day and I will get a pimple every now and then.
