Do your medications cause acne?
mercygive posted:
I get acne with new medications. My doc prescribes clindamycin phosphate topical lotion (Rx only). Within a few days, most of my acne disappears and my skin feels less dry and smoother than before I applied the lotion. I can use it every day without my skin drying up.
One (60 ml) bottle cost me $5 through my insurance and lasts forever.

There may better products out there but I thought I'd share what works for me.
I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy -

mercygive replied to IrwinsLady's response:
My skin is sensitive to just about everything, and I was glad to find just this one thing that works for me. I don't have any other tips for now. I'm just elated to have something to post that has any useful content

Thanks. I am usually pretty lucky. However, when I was on risperdal, that was my one bad side effect from skin broke out really bad, particularly on my neck. I don't care if that is a listed side effect or not but I know that is what caused it. As soon as I stopped the risperdal it went away. Oddly enough, my pdoc at the time never suggested something like your lotion. Its good to keep in mind.
