    Try using a towel soaked in a mixture of SeaBreeze, water and ice to wipe off sweat between innings, also wipe down the mask. The alcohol in the SeaBreeze cleans and cools at the same time so it is a win/win!

    I was a catcher back in the day and had the same problem. Clean the mask and face
    After
    Each game.

We also replaced her chin pad on her mask. And dds face is 100% clearer. Acne Solutions by clinque can be a little pricey but it works! They make a face wash, a toner, moisturizer and even foundation that has the medication in it. dd started using it and we saw results within a week. but be patient it takes time for any treatment to work.
    Try this and if that does not work, consult an actual dermatologist. We had to for DD, and she was given prescriptions for face wash and cream of some kind. It depends on an individual's skin type, and other factors. But as bmd stated have some patience with it. It takes a few weeks of staying with the routine to see results.

    My first mask (cheap Rawlings) gave me a rash/irritation. I thought it was a reaction to the synthetic leather. Currently I'm using an All Star with the mesh pad that is really easy to clean.

    DD is 13, and the hormonal acne really increased during school softball. We thought it was the mask as well. She had used Proactiv with great results prior to that. It has actually gotten worse since the season ended.

    I guess my message is that anything touching the face (including hands) can make it worse, but some people are just more prone to acne than others.

    She just started on Rodan and Fields Unblemish to see if it will work for her. (No, I donít sell it.). If it doesnít work within the 2 months, our next stop is the dermatologist.

    If you insurance covers it, or if you are ok with spending money to see a specialist......dermatologist asap. Helped dd right away. One word of caution, if she does go and gets prescription strength face wash, get her own wash rags, or giver he ones that you are ready to get rid of, because what ever ones she uses with that face wash will be bleached/discolored/ruined.

    SeaBreeze (per Google) - Ingredients: 4 oz Cranberry juice, 1 1/3 oz Vodka, 1 oz Grapefruit juice

    Wouldn't the juice get a little sticky once it dries? I would think this particular solution helps the parents much more than the players, but I'm learning not to question Southerners when it comes to staying cool.
