I’ve had oozing crusts for the last 10 years. I’ve never found any information about it and every doctor diagnoses me with acne. I’ve always thought it was a strange type of impetigo that just doesn’t go away but I also wasn’t sure. I accidentally stumbled across this website while searching for images to try and identify my disease again and I’m absolutely floored! I thought I was the only one going through this!!! Thank you all for existing and I’m sorry we all have to go through this.
I should also mention it started out on one part of my face. It was only one spot that came up repeatedly. Over the years it has spread to all my cheeks and even chin.
I’ve personally found that Azelaic acid has helped reduce the severity of my oozing. Instead of 1cm+ sizes lesions I get 1-3mm sized ones.
I’ve also been trying out differin (retinoid) has anyone found success with retinoids?
I’m also interested in soolantra but am worried about causing some kind of resistance and making this totally unmanageable. Does anyone have info on this?
Thank you all!
