I asked his dad, and yes it's been about 5 months. He has extremely dry skin and lips. And his face is red. Nose bleeds at the drop of a hat. The past two weeks, he has had quite an attitude. Even towards me. He's a pitcher on the HS baseball team, and lately, he acts like he doesn't even want to play. He's even gone so far as to call me to come get him out of class so he wouldn't have to act like a judge. This is an honors student with a 4.0 gpa. He's even lost interest in his dog. He's 15. I don't see a major improvement at all. I'm becoming extremely worried about him. His dad is going to call his derm. I know he only washes his face once a day. Where can I get basis lotion?



You can find basis lotion at Walmart. I hope he is just using water to wash his face and not soap too. I'm sure he has lost interest in many things. You just need to remind him that things will get better. Put yourself in his shoes-I'm not sure how bad he has acne, but if its pretty bad imagine how you would feel. Maybe he doesn't want everyone looking at him when he plays baseball. When I had acne I didn't want people looking at me. I tried to hide in the corners and not say anything. I didn't want to bring attention to myself. I didn't understand why anyone would want to be friends with me. Its just hard for others to imagine I guess. Things do get better though.

So the name of the lotion is basis lotion. I will look at that. I am going to Wal-Mart tonight.

At about 20 I started having breakouts on my jawline and down my neck for no apparent reason. I lived with it for awhile then had to do something about it.
I washed my face with a ben. peroxide soap & used the differen gel at night and a benzoyl peroxide cream (prescription) for spot treatment and took tetracycline everyday all at the same time. My face dried out and burned so bad at first that I wanted to scream when putting on my makeup or washing my face. The dried flaky skin and redness was embarassing but after quitting the soap and only using the spot treatment when absolutely necessary my skin quit being so sensitive and everything cleared up!!! I also started going for microdermabrasion and that helped the spots and discolorations beyond belief not to mention getting rid of stubborn blackheads and making my pores smaller!

I have been there and pray that you hvae found a great med that works for you! Keep us posted.

I would say it took about 8 weeks for everything...peeling, flaking, redness, spots and pimples to all go away. Thats one of the reasons I started microdermabrasion to help slough off all that skin flaking off and it made my skin soft as a babys butt. I would catch myself touching it because I had never had such clear skin! I also switched to Cetaphil cleanser for my face since its so gentle. I needed all the comfort I could get! :c)

I have tanned so much lately that my skin is starting to itch. I meant to put that in the other post.

Shawn .. is your Dad aware of what lotion you are using and that you are itching? You have access to great resources in tanning... let them know what is going on with you.

I found a cleanser you might want to try...I love it. I tend to have oily yet sensitive skin. Its Noxzema Triple Clean (Its active ingredient is Triclosan..its antibacterial) It does not sting or burn and is very creamy and lathers really well. I also found a toner made by loreal that is gentle but helps dry up the oil without drying out my skin called Shine control double action. I am totally in love with Clean and Clear Blackhead Clearing scrub and Loreals NEW purezone moisturizer with salicylic acid. WHat can i say I experiment! But I have found these products to work well and especially well together! Clearasil makes a moisturizer like the purezone thats alot cheaper and you get twice as much in the tube so I have found out today but have not tried it. Look into them and see if any of them appeal to you...but I highly recommend the Cleanser!!!!!!
