My First Derm Appt Ever Is Tomorrow..

5 posts in this topic

well the title says it all i have a derm appt tomorrow and i really do not want to start taking antibiotics because of everything ive read about resistance and when you stop taking it it comes back.. also i do not want any topicals because almost all have a bad IB.. which is why i really dont even use moisturizer.. plus almost all antibiotics take FOREVER to work from my readings on the org...

so does any one have any advice for me they could spare.. im going to tell my soon to be new derm that i have researched alot of information on acne and i dont want her giving me crap that makes me breakout just to come back a month later..

plus my acne used to be alot worse 4 months ago its starting to settle down but im still getting new pimples every now and then. so i dont want to get prescribed something that is going to make me worse before better.. also i already have tons of redmarks im dealing with i dont need more..

can any one tell me off the bat whats a good combo they have been prescribed with NO initial breakout and began working fairly quickly..

the only thning i really want to consider from the derm is bactrim and benzac ac 2.5% (10%BP burned my skin very badly)

shed any light any one please.. thanks alot for the support..

Personally, it depends on the severity of your acne. Go in with an open mind, listen to what he/she has to say, share your concerns with him/her then you can make your own decisions.

I don't think there is any guarantee that you won't have an initial breakout from any products. Firstly, if you do breakout, it is possible that its not even because of what you are prescribed. There are too many things that affect acne. Everyone reacts differently. The strangest thing might work for one person but not for other people.

I don't believe anything works very quickly for acne. As for Benzac, if you do use that, you definitely need moisturizer. Similar like the Regimen here. I'm sure you can look at the effects of BP and how to start start off with it. Benzac doesn't need a prescription as far as I can tell. So if you really are considering that, might as well try out the Regimen.

Good luck with the appointment. Hopefully whatever they might prescribe for you will work.

About the prescription for 1 months and appointment in 2 months. Definitely call them to check again if he got it wrong. Try out the doxy and see how it goes. Hope it works well for you. Doesn't seem like your derm is very nice =/ Sorry about that.
