Follow directions: it sounds like you are using Elimite (permethrin). Use as shampoo and leave on for the recommended time period and then rinse and repeat 7-9 days later. Do not use other shampoos.

Scrub exfoliates : Scrubs exfoliate the skin and do little to improve oily skin. Retinoids are more effective for diminishing oil gland output. Otc preparations are usually known as retinols.

I generally prefer basic facial soaps such as cetaphil, basis, dove, or aveeno, (oatmeal) followed by a non comedogenic moisturizer with zinc/titanium dioxide. ...Read more
