My skin has been breaking out for about two weeks now. Normally I just get the occasional pimple, but currently all along my hair line and upper chest are broken out. I haven’t changed any hygiene habits since June when I went no-poo. Currently, I use Dove soap for sensitive skin for both my face and body and an apple cider vinegar rinse for my hair. My hair and scalp are both behaving, but my skin is not. I’ve decided to go to a dermatologist if it continues too much longer.
I’ve never been to a dermatologist before and I was curious if anyone had any anecdotal information for me. What sorts of questions do he ask? Will he think my no-poo routine is nuts? Will he need to see skin beyond the parts that are breaking out? Will I get guilt tripped for not doing something that I’m supposed to, like I do with flossing at the dentist?
Any other advice or thoughts on dermatologists is welcome. TMI zit stories aren’t…sorry, I’m squeamish.
