Hi Distressed Mom
Hi Writers, sorry that I am replying now but I have been away for a while but now I am up and going again and ready to give you good advice!
Hope everyone is doing well!!
The make-up is definitely a problem because she is just making it worse and blocking the pours. She is on good medication but the make-up is causing the problem here.
Roaccutane is a good option but unfortunately some times it gets worse before getting better and it has got an effect on your mood and causes dryness of lips, skin.
I would suggest that she go with the treatment that she has and stop the make-up. She needs to give her skin a break. Obviously she is self-conscious and therefore let her where a good base if she realy needs to look "presentable" but at home - no make-up what so-ever & she needs to clean her skin well.
If this doesn't help, then consider roaccutane.
