Dr Phil, On one side, my face seems to have break out in

Customer Question

Dr Phil,

On one side, my face seems to have break out in smaller red raised pimples with pus but they are not as angry as the ones I have been getting. Is this normal or should it all be going with the gel I am using

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

This is normal.

you are going to have flare ups from this

you have to control it with the medicine

Just don't pick and irritate them

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)

Dr phil,


Eryacne made me break out, so I stopped using it

I am now back on duac gel and bactroban during the day

I notice whenever I shave, my skin looks clearer is that due to the alcohol in the aftershave do you think?

It could be. Yes
