My doctor prescribed purbac to me. I am aware that for my skin to get better, it must first become worst. Therefore, I would like to know what to do when my face starts to break out - I don't want to squeeze or scratch it but I don't know what to do? Do I do something or just leave it? Please help!
It is not necessary for the skin to get worse before it gets better. If it does occasionally break out, I would suggest using benzoyl peroxide/ clindamycin ointment over it and see if it seems to help. If this does not help improve, it is advised to see a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.
