Hi all - I'm wondering what over the counter acne meds you can use? I've got bumps on my face, and chest, and never had them before. Any ideas?

aloe vera gel. Fresh. My mom keeps telling me to do it, but there's no fresh aloe around here. I'll buy a bottle at the organic store and try it out. my forehead hasn't been clear for 2 months. Its the only place I have pimples

I asked a pharmacist last nite what I could use and she preferred benzol peroxide over salicylic acid. The only thing I could find was called zapzyt and it is a cream. She didn't think either was really harmful, but the acid is a little stronger. She did say to stay away from RX acne meds. I found it at walmart, and my bumps already look better since last nite.

I've also heard you should stay away from salicylic acid. I checked my Clearisil ointment and it has benzol peroxide so its safe.

ProActive has worked wonders for me! Sometimes you can find it at a mall rathering than ordering online. I really like it, and it's safe to use during pregnancy.

Hmmm, what's the active ingredient in ProActive? Are you sure its safe?
