I have been using the Coral Kavi soap bar for a few weeks now and my acne has been getting significantly worse. I have small bumps covering my forehead (they are barely noticeable but they weren't there before) and clusters of large painful red bumps on my lower face around the chin area. I have hear of acne treatments purging your acne (where the acne actually gets worse before it gets better) so is this what i should be seeing after 2 weeks? Should I be waiting it out for a few more weeks? The soap isn't drying my skin out or anything and the only other thing i have been doing is trying to spot treat the individual spots with a clean and clear spot treatment gel. Also if i should be carrying on with the soap is there any way to reduce the inflammation because the spots are very painful.
24 years old.
teenage acne which moved from t-zone to lower face in adulthood.
have been living in very humid climate for 2 years which made my acne very bad.
sensitive skin which has broken out into a very red itchy rash after 3 day of using certain products (neutrogena, proactive, oxy).
fairly oily skin all over.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
