Day 39 - Acne Marks Have Me Upset & Hiding

Posted by hope2013 in Hoping For Clear Skin with Spironolactone & Atralin, 03 May 2015 · 7 views

I had some purging happen on my cheeks, chin, and very top of my right forehead (by my hairline)...and the marks are pink/red, big, and embarrassing.

I do not want to slap on concealer to go out in public...so I'll be staying in today. I hate this. I hate how much acne & bad skin dictates my mood, my self-confidence, my social life.

Hey guys
So since we last spoke (I spoke you read) I felt as though clearogen was being way too harsh on my skin so I made some changes. I'll go into my current routine later on.
On Friday I had an appointment with a new derm... He told me my acne is probably genetic (even though it's clearly around my jawline and was caused by Yasmin one would think its...

Third Week On Ziana

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 02 May 2015 · 19 views

Not sure whether I've got an abundance of acne and subsurface bumps because of a purge, or because I was on my period.
My forehead isn't as prone to acne as other areas of my face, but I've got three pimples there right now. On the bright side, those clogged pores I've had for the past few weeks are receding.
Left and right sides of my face aren't looking...

Accutane Day 12

Posted by piano36 in piano36's Blog, 01 May 2015 · 20 views

I've had a bit of a breakout  :( at least its not too bad (nothing more than what I would've gotten before starting accutane).  I have noticed, however, that any spots that I do have heal much more quickly.

Besides the dry skin, which is parched, but pretty manageable, I've experienced a few other minor side effects. By the end of the day,...

My Acne Story

Posted by Gabrielle90 in Gabrielle90's Blog, 25 April 2015 · 45 views

Hi my name is gaby! I have been suffering from acne for 3 and 1/2 years. I am now 14. It started when I was 11 years old and is much much worse today.  It was so embarrassing to get acne in 4 grade. Most people in my class didn't mind at all. I was actually popular.

Then in 6th grade I switched schools. I went from a very small private school to a huge...

I started taking Accutane yesterday on 10mg a day. My first pill yesterday left me feeling quite nauseas and I had it straight after my food. Today no nauseas. No side effects at all yet. I am so very nervous for the side effects. I have quite a vibrant social life and I am incredibly scared of having a initial breakout, but I guess it's worth it to have...

So long in fact that I have already made the life-changing decision to begin an Isotretinoin treatment and am currently on my 47th day of treatment.

I no longer count the days or weeks. Its taking less time to get ready and I no longer stare at my face in every possible reflection. I am extremely happy with the progress in this month.
 
What makes me laugh is that when a new spot comes out, a tiny spot and just one; I get angry. You have to realize what you have gone through and how far you...

8 Weeks Off Epuris

Thought I'd give a short little update on my progress. I was on Epuris from November 2014 until mid-February 2015. I stopped my treatment about 20 days before I was supposed to, because I just couldn't do it anymore. My mental state was just not... the best during these months. It was probably unrelated to the medication, but I believe that the medication...
