Fay A. Posted July 2, 2003 Share Posted July 2, 2003 If you are on Iressa you should use the mildest shampoo and soap you can find. The thing that worked the best for me was the unscented Aveeno Baby wash and Baby Shampoo. And I used the unscented Aveeno lotion on my back, chest, arms, etc. It helped keep the inflammation down for me. This isn't a true acne like condition, it just looks like it. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic cream to use on my face and neck. I was able to use Bactroban with good results and no bad side effects. I couldn't use the Clindomycin Cream because I have Crohn's Disease. Drinking a lot of water each day also helped. You have to be careful about secondary bacterial, viral and fungal infections setting in. Anytime you have broken skin this is a potential complication. Hope this helps, Fay A.
