    orange juice is not a good thing to drink...stick with whole fruits and foods...avoid it even if it doesn't break you out!

    good for you - I too am gluten free, soy free and dairy free....haven't gone paleo yet, I am very thin and I can't afford to lose weight

    you look very slim too....are you able to maintain your weight on this diet?

    and good for you for doing it the hard way!! so great when you find your answer!!!!

    sadly that's becoming the exception and not the rule....personally I'd only let the doctor do it, but it's more about experience with the machines I guess

    you want to make sure that they have experience before they touch you, particularly if it's going to be a deep treatment -- perhaps the doctor does those and the lighter more surface treatments are done by the nurses and assistants

    BP doesn't work for everyone- but there are other things, have you seen a derm? how old are you?...male or female?

    clean up your diet, minimize processed food, clean whole foods, ditch dairy if you haven't, that's a big trigger for many, give it 30 days see if it works for you

    if you are open to it the derm will give you antibiotics and likely a BP/clindamycin lotion...that may kick start things.....

    is your acne cystic? that's a whole different animal sadly...give us a little more info, and hang in there, you are among friends

    it's not cystic but it's pervasive, and I get the frustration trust me...looks like it would respond well to a topical, what do you wash with and treat with am and pm?

    try photo dynamic therapy - they put an acid on your face ALA and you incubate then it's activated with red and blue's what they do for pre cancerous can be very helpful in shrinking the sebaceous glands

    also clean up your diet if you haven't, ditch dairy if you haven't and see what happens, it's a trigger for many

    but do look into the acne PDTs, expensive but if you can swing it, that's where I would go next

    you should look into subscision on some of the deeper rolling scars first, then follow up with derma rolling - I think that would speed things up considerably for you

    many threads on subscision here, Mr Matt saw GREAT results and I believe he's still an active member

    good luck, get a plan and get going- everything can be improved

    so he's not a derm or a ps, is he a nurse practioner? or a physician's assistant? I'd want to understand his background and experience sure.

    I've had the erbium resurfacing, it did help, but the downtime was very rough, much worse than I you really need a minimum of 2 weeks off, minimum- but there was improvement, no doubt....I now do dermastamping on the remaining rolling scars, but the erbium smoothed things out, no doubt....but wowzer, what a long recovery

    I had fraxels too, and I honestly think the 5 of those I had gave me as much % wise as the big erbium resurfacing, but each of those had a few days downtime...but honestly all up all in, I'd take the series of fraxels. personally

    I would lower the dosage, yes it extends the time, but minimizes side effects, and right now you need a normal active life, and that includes football for you

    so drop the dose down, try 20 twice a day, and if that is still an issue then go to 30 (20 am and 10 pm)'ll find the right dose, and if after football you feel like you want to go back up, then you do

    and it certainly didn't slow him's all about the attitude- perhaps he had a rough time as a youth, but who knows?

    I've always wished some popular tv personality with obvious acne scars would share their story- and I'm talking obvious scars, not Adam Levine type

    But in general it's true, we are so tough on ourselves and obsess over things that others glance at

    when you are on Accutane, even a low dose, your skin will be need to dry it all, just stick to the spots

    I think it's a very good approach, low dose....please keep us posted!

    it's really not that bad, and it's not time I get one the size of a marble deep under the skin I will send you a picture

    seeing a derm is a good idea, try to avoid the anti biotics....stick to topicals - while you wait for the appointment really give the regiment a try- with your mild acne it just may help

    my advice, no matter what the ailment, educate yourself- and you go armed with what you need to do

    to me they just write prescriptions, I do all of the research and heavy lifting

    so fingers crossed- but I would ditch dairy all together if I were you- get an almond milk or coconut milk...but hey you know your body/skin best

    some other advice from a long time cystic acne sufferer- when the bump starts, go get an injection of kenalog- find a good derm who is very skilled at this, trust me I've had a LOT of shots, when you find a good one you'll know it.....that for me takes it right out in 24-48 if you are getting 2 or 3 a week then we have to go another way

    good luck, and let's hope it's on the way out!

  15. mrsrobinson added a post in a topic Please Help, Nasty Red Scar On Neck   

    far from nasty- but I get it- you've had it a while, it will take time to fade- use an AHA daily, like the one on, or look for the red box product alpha hydrox, get a 10% AHA- start slow once a day, patch test first before you put all over....then wear a sunscreen daily!

    it will fade, takes time, this jump starts the time!
