  1. i wasnt on birth control before spiro because i had to stop a few years prior but it works great for me and i've been on it for almost 4 years. before that i was getting painful cysts and nodules and had to get them injected every week. i tried everything you could think of before going on spiro besides accutane. if i get a spot now its very small and goes away very quickly. good luck to you
  2. Spiro dosage

    i think 100mg a day is the normal dosing for spiro. i would try that and see where it gets you. i've been 100mg for almost 4 years and its been amazing. if only i went on spiro before i could have avoided alot of scarring. good luck to you.
  3. How to tell if its keloid?

    it doesn't look like a keloid its probably a hypertrophic scar or could just be a cyst. either way I am sure your derm can inject that for you to get it to go way down. good luck. more info here: Keloids are the result of an overgrowth of dense fibrous tissue that usually develops after healing of a skin injury. The tissue extends beyond the borders of the original wound, does not usually regress spontaneously, and tends to recur after excision. In contrast, hypertrophic scars are characterized by erythematous, pruritic, raised fibrous lesions that typically do not expand beyond the boundaries of the initial injury and may undergo partial spontaneous resolution. Hypertrophic scars are common after thermal injuries and other injuries that involve the deep dermis.
  4. Co2 For Raised Scars?

    i dont have any recent pics of them but i still need to go back and get more injections. they are flatter but not totally flat yet. after i get them injected again the doc was going to micro needle them and then do something to help with the white color. you should totally get yours injected but find a good reputable derm to do it. good luck!!
