What to do if I have dry skin and What to do if I have acne. I was wondering if I could put on johnson's baby lotion before going to bed to moisturise my face?
I used johnsons baby lotion on my 5 week old baby. He developed acne on face. Not sure I its heat rash or acne. How to check and what's the treatment.
Worthless: Oxistat is oxiconzaole. It's a fungicide, and a pretty good one, but it won't touch your acne. Further, your question says to me that you've not taking advantage of medications that do work. If your acne is severe, I'm going to assume that topical benzyl peroxide, retinoic acid and/or salicylic acid have failed. Get with your personal physician. If you're offered isotretinoin, be brave & do it. ...Read more
