Purging or just breaking out?
(0) Hearts

I started a new face wash almost two weeks ago and I have had a couple small pimples pop up, but I have also had at least three under the skin pimples that feel hard and are slightly painful to the touch.  I have had these before but I would usually just get one every once in a while.  I thinking that this isnt purging just a bad breakout.  What do you all think?  Should I stick it out a a couple more weeks?

Whether I had surface acne or cystic acne, I used to treat them all and the same, but I started reading up on different acne cleansers and their effects on different acne, and I started using Dermadoctor's Ain't Misbehavin' AHA/BHA Cleanser. This is one of the few cleansers that won't dry out my skin and helps with the acne underneath your skin. I would check out reviews on that and grab a sample to see for yourself. However, if you've only been using your face wash for 2 weeks, you should give it another 2 weeks before finding another solution. I hope this helps and good luck!
