I have oily skin anyway. I use witch hazel because it doesn't overdry.

I have oily skin but not b/c of medication. I was born with it. I use Cetaphil as a daily face wash followed by green tea and caffeine face moisturizer. The moisturizer helps kill bacteria that causes bacteria for swelling and redness that in turn can cause acne. Especially, if you consume a great deal of acidic foods and drinks.

From living in dry and humid places, I get heat rashes in weird places. So, after a shower, I use hydrogen peroxide on those places followed by coconut oil.
