I used Aquaphor for about a week after Mixto and my skin is broken out only where I used it so I'm sure that's the culprit. How can I clear this up considering how sensitive my skin is following the Mixto?
What's the Best Way to Treat Breakouts on Skin Sensitve After Mixto?

Acne Breakouts after MIXTO - due to Aquaphor?
I stopped using Aquaphor many months ago in my patients when I saw the additional breakouts. It is a thick ointment that can clog pores especially if used after 48 hours post-procedure. Stop using the Aquaphor and switch to a gentle cleanser and lighter moisturizer. That should help.
