Day #1

Posted by kaitlynanderson92 in My Vitamin D3 Expierience , 22 October 2014 · 24 views

So having struggled with my acne for my whole entire life, even though I am only 22, I am getting to a point where I feel extremely helpless. I have tried almost everything for my skin; Accutane 4 years ago, over the counter medicine, Pro Active, birth control, every face wash in the skin care isle, many dermatologist facials, all organic washes, at home...

DAY 17:
I've been trying to update this blog every Sunday, but I've had a lot going on at school recently, so I just didn't have time to write a post.  Anyway, it's day 17 now and I am chugging along in what so far seems to be the luckiest Accutane experience ever (knock on wood a million times, throw salt, spit, etc.).  My face has rema...

Accutane In College -3Rd Post

Posted by TheBoat93 in TheBoat93's Blog, 21 October 2014 · 26 views

Once I ran out of the first month's perscription, I was off Accutane for probably 2.5 weeks.  I was worried that the time off would make my skin look worse, but it actually didnt change at all (that I could notice).  I called the dermatologist and she said that the thing that matters with accutane is that you get the total amount of it that you...

Healing Thoughts....

Posted by mintile12 in The Clear Skin Frequency, 21 October 2014 · 28 views

So I've been dealing with this thing some call mild hormonal acne for almost 8 years now. Tried everything under the sun, Accutane, creams, gels, micro, peels, you name it I tried it with little success. But recently I have finally come to a point  in my life where I don't think that breaking out is the actually problem. I consider myself a spir...

In today's world of youth and beauty, many people of a certain age are looking for ways to prolong their youthful appearance without expensive or dangerous cosmetic procedures. The good news is that anti-wrinkle creams truly work wonders on the skin, especially if they are utilized prior to the appearance of wrinkles. As the skin ages, it loses collagen a...

Finally Finished W/ Accutane

Posted by runner7891 in runner7891's Blog, 15 October 2014 · 101 views

All done with Accutane (Isotretinoin)! The last 6 months have been filled with ups and downs, but I'm happy to say that my complexion is great! It was a difficult decision to finally start the Accutane process, but I am glad I made this decision.  Accutane is a hard core drug that can take a toll on the body. Nice skin comes at a price with this...

Almost Off Of Bactrim!

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 11 October 2014 · 88 views

Two weeks ago I moved down from taking one Bactrim pill a day to one only every other day. My acne hasn't flared up at all. I still get whiteheads and pimples, but they're definitely not as bad as they used to be. Still using Epiduo in the evening. Don't know if I've seen much improvement with my hyperpigmentation. I had a derm's appointment scheduled for...

First Day On Acne.org

Posted by steenystellar in steenystellar's Blog, 11 October 2014 · 111 views

In a desperate attempt to find yet another cure for my acne, I stumbled upon acne.org. I have had acne since I was 11-years old and am 26-years old now. I am so tired of feeling the way I do about my face. I feel embarrassed and am never happy when I look at my skin in the mirror. Today is the worst I have ever seen my skin to be honest.

-I started too fast using benzoyl peroxide (proactive left over)  twice a day within jus...

Okay, yeah it sucked to be 35 and still have acne with pores that were getting larger. It started at 15. It's been a life-long humiliation. And has severely affected my self-esteem. I hated it so bad. I also suffer from OCD, so it's hard to keep my hands off my face. I had it all, black heads, white heads, cystic acne. H...

Posted by runnergirl13! in runnergirl13!'s Blog, 03 October 2014 · 183 views

Wow, never thought I'd be back on this website 4 years later after I went on accutane when I was 19, but here i am. To catch anyone up who's reading this, I'm a 24 year old female who has been suffering with mild-moderate acne for over 10yrs now. I decided to go on Accutane in 2009 when everything else failed (prescribed pills and topicals). My skin was g...

Oily Skin/retinoids/skin Damage

It's commonly accepted that high androgen production contributes to oil production, which clogs up your pores, which leads to inflammation, etc. This is why dermatologists push birth control on me; they see that my skin is oily so obviously I must have a hormonal imbalance. Typical dermatologist visit (for me at least).

This was probably true when I was...

Chinese Medicine

I feel very confused. It seems whatever I choose is wrong. My recent visit with my naturopath left me feeling more frustrated than ever. She explained that I am eating way to much raw food. I drink smoothies for breakfast with mostly veggies not fruit. She said that according to Chinese medicine, it is very hard for the body to break down raw food. Well I...

Swollen Lymph Glands Caused By Curacne (Isotretinoin)

Posted by Palmina in Palmina's Blog, 27 September 2014 · 145 views

It's been 6 days since I've been on curacne, and just this morning I've noticed that there's a grape-sized hard lump on my neck, right under my jaw.

I read the leaflet, and it said that swollen lymph glands could be one of the side effects, but it's a very rare one (1/10,000)!

Anyway, my questions are:
Has anyone experienced this side effect?
Will my...
