Female looking for a good cleanser for dry skin. Years!!! No…

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

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Susan O.USA

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
