Also, most acne products are drying so switching products might mean you are now using something "more drying" than before. This would give you a reaction/rash. The key is to go slow when switching regimens. ...Read more

It's worse than useless for contact dermatitis, eczema, and if you self-treat an undiagnosed rash, you ignore possible serious illness at your own peril. ...Read more
