I Would recommend it

Dr. Brims :

It is a face wash

Customer:

is 10% too high, only asking because everything I have read said that 2.5% is the highest needed recommended. However that's why I have contacted you, right. Do you recommend a moisturizer as a follow up?

Dr. Brims :

10% is not too high, Plenty of patients have used it, I recommend starting i=only once a day and using a moisturizer as a follow up to prevent drying

Customer:

He is 28 yrs and under a lot of stress but with no insurance so he has to go with something that he can get over the counter. Is there anything else he can do to help calm or handle the stress break outs?

Dr. Brims :

He can only try to control the stress, possibly deep breathing techniques

Dr. Brims :

The face wash I mentioned above is OTC so he can get it at any pharmacy

Customer:

Thank you for your help.

Dr. Brims :

You're very welcome
