Re: I am having sudden breakouts and need help

I have a closer to mild case of acne than moderate and have been getting sudden breakouts. I noticed that I was washing my face more, so is washing too much a bad thing? I also tried this product called acnomel. Would you reccomend this product? If not than what do you think i should try? I have sensitive skin and I dont really wanna see a dermatologist.
                                            -thanx a lot

Hemanshu:
Among the ance products you can buy over the counter, the best regimen combines a benzoyl peroxide cleanser with a topical lotion or gel containing benzoyl peroxide, sulfu, or resorcinol.  Acnomel is one reasonable choice.
Remember that even heavy-duty prescription treatments take 6-8 weeks to work, or even more.  It's hard to be patient that long, but if you don't, you'll give up too soon and never get better.  Also, don't pick or squeeze!  If you do, you won't be able to tell if you're getting better.
If you don't clear up, don't rule out seeing a Dermatologist.  We're not such bad guys when you get to know us!
Best.
