Has any one since getting hsv2 on genitals had face acne problems ? How did you deal with it ? What helps?

Recommended Posts

I had finally got my acne under control related to some bacteria issues I was having in my gut, when I got diagnosed with HSV2 and had my first outbreak my skin freaked out again, acne all over and body acne reappeared again. Trying to continue cutting out dairy and gluten as I know it affects me greatly. Also making sure to wash my face frequently- I use “the ordinary” products- alternate their salicylic acid, niacimide, and squalane products with hylauranic acid and Marula oil every other day. Each product is only $5-7 and last about 3-4 months. I use cetaphil for face wash. My skin is also very very dry in the winter so I’ve been using jojoba oil on my face at night. If your skin is dry it tries to over produce oil to make up for the dryness which in turn can cause acne.
