What is wrong with my skin???

I have dryish combination skin that is really red and dry, but at the same time, I have mild acne. I went to a dermatologist and they said it was either karatosis pilaris or rosacea, and I got a few samples of stuff to try: cetaphil, CeraVe, Differin, and Vanicream. I have been using them for 2-3 weeks, but my skin seems to have worsened in texture, and I have several pimples!!! What is going on?? They suggested the laser treatment, but said it was very painful, and I’m not sure I want to go through with that just yet… Is there anything I can do to clear up my skin???

Answer #1

PROACTIVE!!! IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT WORKS!!!… and you should try to go out in the sun, because the sun kills the bacteria that causes acne. I had severe acne on my back , and I started to use proactive and in the summer I would get tan, and it all dissapeared. Do not use differen, it dries out your skin really bad.

Answer #2

omg I have the exact same skin, I think I should go see a dermatologist
