Cystic Acne Cured For Now

Posted by Leanna123, 25 January 2013 · 926 views

I am still using my comprehensive regimen. I don't want to jinx myself but I think I permanently cured myself of cystic acne because I have been off antibiotics for 7 days and no breakouts have happened. Before, like 6 months ago, if I stopped my anti-biotic for even two days, I would break out really severely. For those of you that are noobs, I have been...

Hello fellow bloggers,

Notthing new to report. I have only one cyst under my nose so I called my dermatologist and asked her to increase my dosage of keflex. I haven't heard back from her yet. Bad news, my favorite acne fighter is not covered under the formulary for my insurance so I can't use benzaclin anymore. I have found a clever way to keep...

Stick With What Works

Posted by Leanna123, 15 December 2012 · 423 views

I haven't posted for about a month. During the last month I have only had one pimple. I still use the same regimen I did before. I take massive doses of amoxicillin and cephalexin, interchangeably. I use tretinoin cream, topical clindamycin and benzaclin. I also recently became vegetarian but I dont think that change has effected my complexion in any...

Try My Style

I have had severe cystic acne for over 20 years. I am 38 years old and the breakouts began right around my 15th birthday. Within the last two years I have seen a complete reversal. I never breakout anymore. Why? Because I am now under the care of a brilliant female dermatologist. I mention the fact that she is female to remind everyone that women are...

My Regimen Works...you Should Try It..it Relies Heavily On Prescription Medication So It May Not Be Palatable For Those Who Prefer Home Remedies.

Stiil A Work In Progress....

Posted by Leanna123, 03 November 2012 · 408 views

Stiil A Work In Progress.... Sad news..I just ran out of one my most powerful acne fighters, Benzaclin. It has the anti-acne power of benzoyl peroxide the bacteria killing power of anti-biotic combined, through a freshly mixed batch at the pharmacy. I use it twice a day but next month I'll have to use smaller amounts. I am coping by using more of my lone topical anti-biotic topical...

Painful Face/new Career

Posted by Leanna123, 22 October 2012 · 360 views

Since I started my synthetic epi-duo my face just hurts. When I wash my face it is painful to the touch. I don't know if I got too much sun exposure today or just too much medication on my face. I read the insert for Acanya and realized I use way too much benzaclin (the two products are similar enough for me to use the Acanya directions for the...

Homemade Epi-Duo

Posted by Leanna123, 21 October 2012 · 1,205 views

Homemade Epi-Duo The biggest change to my regimen is that I now apply Retin-A and benzoyl peroxide (and clindamycin) at the same time in an attempt to mimic the effects of epi-duo http://www.epiduo.co...epiduo_gel.aspx So far I have noticed an increased redness to my face. The redness I just live with because I...
