Hi everyone!  I have a  quick question for those on Remicade.  Do you notice that you have more breakouts since starting Remicade?  I used to get the occasional zit, but now I have more.  They are very little and I also have a few on my chest.  My husband says I have hardly any, but I'm not used to having any so it is a lot to me!  Just wondering if anyone else has the same problem.  I am planning to visit a dermatoligist, but my PCP said that if the Remicade is causing it then there is probably not any cream they can give me.  If you have this problem, let me know what you used for it.  Have a great evening!

I can't offer advice on the Remicade bit, but one thing that always worked great for my skin is Clean & Clear... They have a million different products out, my favorite is the Deep Cleaning Cream Cleanser and the Daily Pore Toner. Also the astringent is good to get rid of them quicker. My bathroom looks like I work for Clean & Clear because I buy basically every new product they put out just to try it, hahah. But it worked great when I was having breakouts on prednisone.

PS- I also had terrible skin when I was young and tried pro-active and clinque and all that other expensive garbage and it did nothing for me, so I swear by C&C now and tell everyone about it, haha :)

Thanks for your quick reply. Clean and Clear is actually what I use now! I'm not sure if it is now irritating my skin and causing the breakouts. I know I had to stop using my Mary Kay spot treatment cream because it was causing hives! Who knows! Thanks though!
