xxkinachixx123 added a topic in Prescription acne medicationsShould I Start Retin-A?Ok so about a month ago I started taking a teaspoon of Green Pastures Cod liver oil mixed with butter oil a day. I have had 2 breakouts since in the form of tiny pustules which were not painful at all compared to the deeper cystic acne from before, hence I think the CLO is gradually working.
For the red marks left behind and perhaps to safeguard against future breakouts I am looking to start retin-a perhaps every other day and build up. Is it advisable or even beneficial to add retin-a on top of CLO since both contain vitamin A?
Note: I have used retin-a in the past with success but often stopped and moved onto other treatments with the smallest of breakouts.

xxkinachixx123 added a topic in Prescription acne medicationsTaking Accutane On FinasterideHi, I've been taking finasteride 1.25 mg every other day, to slow down my hairloss. It's become manageable somewhat. However recently my acne has begun to flare up, and even scarred a little. My dermatologist has suggested that I be placed on accutane. Is there a problem using these two in conjunction? It would be very worrying to know that in order to save my skin, I must sacrifice my hair. If anyone has had a similar experience, please comment below.

xxkinachixx123 added a topic in Prescription acne medicationsChance Of Hair Loss With AccutaneOk, so i started accutane 2 weeks ago, on 20mg a day.
Today I have started to alternate between 20 and 40mg /day and in two weeks start 40mg/day.
I was just wondering what are the chances of losing hair and does it come back after treatment? I've been reading some pretty scary stuff on the side-effects.
It's one of my most concerned side effects, as i do attempt to maintain it and style it.
Also is there anything i can do to prevent or minimise it?
