Week 20 40Mg

Posted by Hexagon in Hexagon's Blog, 24 April 2014 · 12 views
accutane, roaccutane, 40mg

No actives this week
Ive realised, the day since getting my copper iud inserted my skin became oily again and blackheads returned. This doesn't make much sense as it is non hormonal, but there are other things going since too, like sore breasts, bloating and constant cramping which clearly shows that it is having some kind of negative effect on my body

Running The Rat Race

Posted by Peaches0042 in The End, 24 April 2014 · 12 views

Like all of you, I've run the acne rat race for several years. Like you, I have tried so many treatments it would be impossible to list them all. I have spent all my free time researching, experimenting, testing and learning about my specific type of acne. I've found things that work and I've found things that work against me. I feel I finally have enough...

Day 180 - End Of Month 6

Posted by lilem13 in acne go away, 24 April 2014 · 15 views

I haven't had a painful cyst or whitehead in over 1 month!! Definitely took me a full 5 months to clear. I still get small noninflamed pimples, which don't bother me too much. Maybe one a week or every other week. Red marks are SLOWLY lightening. I started using Elta MD UV clear spf with niacinamide in it, which supposedly helps to decrease redness a...

Doctors Bound

Today I went to the doctors about my skin. I ment my grandfather in the waiting room, who commented that my face was a mess. Immediately I wanted to run home and hide (any bravado I'd managed to work up going there without make up was instantly shot down).  
Anyways. The doctor took a look, and said that the acne wasn't going to go away on it's own...

From 5Th Grade To High School Sophomore

Posted by Arod1234 in Arod1234's Blog, 23 April 2014 · 18 views

     Before I begin, I am a Colombian (Hispanic) teenager now 16 years old, living in Miami, Florida. I have a tanned kind of skin (not that dark) and semi oily skin. So, I got my first pimple in early 5th grade (when I was 10) right on my nose. Since then I would continuously get black heads and whiteheads mostly on my nose and the cheek n...

Day 5 And 6

Posted by Picky Nicki in Picky Nicki - Make It Stop, 23 April 2014 · 19 views

There really isn't too much to say. I picked a little bit on the 22nd, but it wasn't too bad, and I immediately put calomine lotion on my face and repeated that throughout the day. 
Today I want to peel the dry skin off my face soooooo badly, my fingers are itching to do it. But I can't and I won't because I start work again this evening, the first t...

4 And A Half Months

Posted by Genesys in My accutane journey, 23 April 2014 · 17 views

Skin is great. No new spots, just a couple of fading scars. Other than that completely clear all over. Need to improve diet and take daily zinc supplements to be doubly sure of no new breakouts and help scarring. Can't believe how little side effects I have had with this drug.

How I Cleared My Acne! My Regimen! So a bit of background... I have had acne since I was about 12 and typically throughout school products didnt really work for me until I tried Proactiv. But over time, obviously this product isnt very cost effective and it was ruining all my towels!
I always wanted skin that was beautiful and clear and easy to manage! So I tried every natural way of tryin...

My new regimen:
Every day (twice a day) I will use a Cleanser with 1% of Benzoyl Peroxide
Every Morning I will apply a moisturizer (Sebium Hydra)
For the nights:

Week 7 - Another Week Down, No Better

Posted by ivyagogo in 13 Year-Old's Journey, 21 April 2014 · 45 views

It's hard being patient when your child is suffering. Actually, I think he's doing a remarkable job but it really is rough. He was off of school last week and I think we left the house twice and then only because we forced him. Around the cysts his skin looks good, but those cysts are huge. His back seems a bit better, but the scarring is severe. I do hop...

Posted by runner7891 in runner7891's Blog, 21 April 2014 · 25 views

Day 16 Well, finally getting over the initial breakout! Orrr at least I hope that I am! The breakouts around my lips and chin are pretty much clearing up! I have some big ones on my forehead and near my eyebrows but they are getting better. I can tell that the Isotretinoin is in my system and starting to work. As a result, I'm getting very dry skin and...

My back is getting better. I think the picture I posted to my gallery was a little misleading on what it actually looks like (bad lighting, etc.). It isn't fully better yet. I still have some (around 5) active acne spots, but they are starting to subside. My back has been so itchy and dry lately though that I have been putting a small amount of my...

Accutane/clavaris Day 70

Hello all, it feels good to be this far into the course, especially since the last week has been pretty easy on me compared to the weeks before that. I'm going to break it down week for week like I have done before.
(i started accutane with 4-5 bad cysts, although I was getting persistant moderate acne for along time, nothing ever worked after batt...
