    Thanks, Brady -- I'll look into it. I did try supplementing with astaxanthin for a few months, which is another carotenoid, but didn't notice anything like the dramatic results mentioned in the post...

    If there were a straightforward way to reduce your skin's oil production, I'd love to know it. Sadly I'm unaware of anything that will do that.

    As someone who's suffered from very dehydrated skin,...
  3. I wasn't prescribed the combination, but I found...

    I wasn't prescribed the combination, but I found that the two worked synergistically together. Adapalene, like most retinoids, doesn't have any antibacterial effect per se -- they treat acne by...

    I used Differin gel (adapalene). My routine was to apply a roughly pea-sized amount mixed with a pea-sized amount of Skinoren gel (azelaic acid) nightly, which kept me satisfactorily clear. The...

    I've definitely wondered the same. When I first tried my mix of De La Cruz with additional sublimated sulphur, my face exploded with breakouts, but I took solace in the presumption that more intense...

    Thanks for the update, Nick!

    As for me, I've kept my routine pretty simple as of late. In the mornings I rinse my face with just water and apply Hada Labo Premium Lotion. Then in the evening I'll...

    All shampoos are formulated differently, so when I advise against using them on the face, it's just because as a general rule they contain harsher surfactants than face washes, and foam up more,...

    I'm currently visiting Lithuania, and out of curiosity went to a cosmetics shop inside a supermarket here in Vilnius, and despite it being such a small store space they even had a section...

    My sentiments exactly. People resort to athlete's foot creams and doctors are prescribing harsh shampoos for the face -- a testament to how seb derm research and treatments are horrendously lacking...

    The ciclopirox olamine creams I came across, Mycoster and a generic, did not contain highly comedogenic ingredients like isopropyl myristate. That said, a formulation's comedogenecity can be highly...

    Not that I'm aware of. It might reduce the bacterial load from demodex populations, but I'm unaware of it having any effect on the demodex mite itself, and assume it doesn't considering how hardy the...

    The issue with steroids is that they treat the symptoms but not the cause, by suppressing the immune response, but the body has an immune system for a reason. When the immune system is locally...

    I generally advise against using shampoos as a face wash for the simple reason that they're designed for the scalp, which has thicker skin that can tolerate surfactants much better than the thin skin...

    Yes, I've also tried Mycoster cream which is 1% ciclopirox olamine, with no results. At the very least it's one of the cheapest options to try, as a tube of cream was only about 3.

    That's the Nutraseb facial cream, manufactured by ISDIN, a Spanish company. You can find it fairly easily over-the-counter in pharmacies in Spain and Portugal, and apparently it's even made its way...

    Sorry, I should rephrase my question: has the use of Accutane commonly caused rosacea-like (i.e. "red face") symptoms? I just ask because it's the first time I'm hearing this, so I'm curious how you...

    I've never heard of any cases of rosacea developing from use of Accutane before. Is there substantial evidence of that?

    I've tried the Face Cure cream for 3 weeks, applying to my affected areas (moustache and chin crease), and have noticed no improvement whatsoever. It also has the unfortunate side-effect of clogging...

    Hi dpw, they suggest that once you finish the 3 weeks of using their Face Cure cream you should switch to using their Repair Cream. Have you considered doing that?

    It's interesting that their...

    For what it's worth, I sometimes develop beard rashes also, and if I shave, the area of the rash will flake off after a few days and heal, so in my case there is definitely a correlation between...

    I noticed they mention this on their website also. So the Face/Body Cure creams are just intended as an intensive treatment and not as a prophylactic. The Repair Creams cost roughly the same and are...

    Ah yes, I've found it here. Thanks for sharing that -- I've noted it's cheaper to get it from there especially when you account for postage costs.

    I'm a bit baffled as to what the difference is...

    Is there a specific reason why you've discarded demodex as a causative factor and believe it's Malassezia? I ask because the symptoms that you describe could just as easily be caused by demodex...
