Customer Question
Hi, I'm African American...

Hi, I'm African American Female looking for a good facial cleanser for dry skin.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Do you notice any redness or scaling?

Years!!! No redness, but my face is acne prone and since I pick at my face I have dark spots from ingrown hairs and pimples I burst. :(

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Family history of diabetes as for my health, but that's it really.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Cetaphil gentle facial cleanser would be a good choice. Commonly recommended by dermatologists. Available at drugstores and Walmart. Picking at your face will lead to long term damage and dark spots that cannot be corrected

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
