Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 30 May 2015 · 12 views

So for those of you that are regular readers of my blog ( all two of you), you've probably noticed the tone that the most recent posts have taken on......dark, depressing, woe is me, etc, etc, etc.  in addition to acne being the bane of my existane, my depression is a close second and one definitely exasperates the other.  I am a new Christian but my atti...

Accutane/isotretinoin Question? I am currently on 30mg of accutane, I am only 2 weeks into treatment, & i've only had dry lips/forehead, and very mild peeling, I am going to ask for my dosage to be increased on my next follow up with my dermatologist as I dont feel 30mg is helping my chest/back how it is helping my face. Anyway my concern is the tanned-looking cheeks I am getting, i...

Day 64 - Starting Week 10 On Regimen

Posted by hope2013 in Hoping For Clear Skin with Spironolactone & Atralin, 27 May 2015 · 38 views

So the past few days were a bit rough. But it's Day 64 and for now, things are looking up.

I started my 10th week on this regimen today--which is a pretty big milestone. 3 more full weeks and I will have been on this regimen for 3 months (woah!) That's also the point when I've heard many people experience less purging, which I hope is the case for me!


After 1 Year And 1 Month...

Posted by Peaches0042 in The End, 27 May 2015 · 30 views

I have been using Retin A for 1 year and 1 month. It cleared me up really nicely. Better than anything in the past ever has. However, I was never completely clear. I would still breakout and pretty consistently have 1 or 2 mild pimples. Of course, that wasn't good enough for me so I tried to add to my regimen and ended up breaking out from it. I don't rem...

Day 14

Posted by billygirl in Caveman 1 Month With Pics, 26 May 2015 · 42 views

Skin seems to be getting worse again. We are camping at the mo, so no pics. I've come out in a new crop of spots (pus filled), and yet the flaking dryness is showing no signs of easing. In fact, I think I look about 10 years OLDER.

When is the dryness gonna stop? My skin just flakes and flakes all the time and I look so awful. Like I have some kind of di...

My New Obsession

Been a while since I've posted anything. I've been around though... Lurking.

My accutane experience
I was on 20mg/d for 7 months (weight dwindles between 105-110lbs). My skin cleared up really really quickly. Never had an initial breakout (which I am grateful for) but I did have two shitty sunburns. Had joint pain, dry eyes and lips which became really...

June is approaching fast. My 3rd month of Accutane is almost over. My acne has definitely subsided substantially. I have just one pimple on my back right now. During my first two months I was getting worried, but now when I feel my back it's such a wonderful feeling to feel it's smoothness. The only thing I am worried about now is the scarring. I have hyp...

Hello fellow acne-sufferers, 

My name is Marlissa, I am 23 years old with combination-oily skin (the most awesome skin type out there...NOT). Anyways I have mild/moderate acne which flares up extremely bad during the "time of the month" but sure that's a given. Throughout the rest of the month I am basically recovering from those breakouts (only to...

Argan Oil And Other Natural Remedies

Posted by Disneyaddict92 in TheLostBoys' Blog, 24 May 2015 · 37 views

So it has been years since I've been on here and in between times I've been on Metformin for insulin resistance which cleared up my acne initially and then it came back worse. I then came off Metformin and there was no difference, hey ho! I've been on Evening Primrose Oil for a year or so which seems to sort of regulate my periods and possibly help my ski...

Week 6 - Breakouts All Over My Chin

Posted by Mels23 in Mels23's Blog, 23 May 2015 · 67 views

Normally when I breakout, I breakout all over my jaw, around my cheekbones, and quite a bit around my mouth. But for the past 2 weeks, I'd say 60% of my breakouts are on my chin/around my mouth. To add, my lips have been feeling really dry lately. I still get acne all over my face (the impacted pores on my forehead are starting to settled down though) but...

Sosos Accutane

Posted by loromano in loromano's Blog, 19 May 2015 · 50 views

Hello! I am twenty years old, and starting June 4th, 2015, I will be starting ACCUTANE.  I have been on every antibiotic there is, many topical, and four different types of birth control.  I have been researching and finding absolute horror stories about accutane. My only couple of questions are; Does everyone break out on the pill?...

Day 22

So I called my derm about my lip issues and she said to go buy hydrocortisone and that should help. I started getting these little bumps on my lip line and told her about those as well and since my next appointment is the 28th she said to stick to the HC and aquaphor for now and if I needed a prescription later she'd write one. Besides that I have switche...

Hi all,

I have just started accutane 20mg every second day for mild yet persistent acne. I have alway suffered from breakouts throughout the years, nothing too extreme a few pimples here and there, but my problem was always those large painful cystic pimples that would take 2 weeks+ to disappear and could not be popped. My problem areas are my cheeks and...
