I started using Soolantra one week ago. I apply it at night, right after washing my face, and then apply extra virgin coconut oil over top of it after waiting 5-10 minutes. In the morning, I wash my face again and only apply the EVC (Extra Virgin Coconut).
Over this first week, I've removed all restrictions on my diet except that I don't really like sugar that much. My skin is almost completely normal because of Soolantra. I have gotten an occasional whitehead, but they have been small and absolutely no oozing at all. Or so minimal, the crust has been barely bigger than a grain of sand. I did get one or two red splotches that I assumed would break out, but that same day the redness faded and the splotch disappeared.
I am not taking anything else in conjunction with Soolantra, other than a B Vitamin complex which I always take.
It is possibly what you're experiencing is die-off. If you are using tea tree oil, then its even more likely its a die-off effect. I think its important not to try too many different things at once. I highly recommend using just coconut oil or a mild moisurizer like cerave or cetaphil. If you make it a month where you find Soolantra is working for you, then start experimenting with tea tree to see if your face can handle it. I used tea tree and jojob for a few months and it tore my skin apart. I could never get through the die-off phase.
