A prescription for Doryx from my dermatologist has helped a lot. Plus I found m triggers are alcohol, sugar, sweat, hot water and heat.If I overdo any of these I will have a flare. When it flares, I make an oatmeal mask of plain greek yogurt, honey and oatmeal. I put the oatmeal in my food processor to make it fine. Just a little honey. Keep it in the fridge. Spread it on my face for 10-15 minutes and rinse with cool water. I only use Cetaphil cleanser and lotion.
