New To Regimendry patches
Posted 22 June 2012 - 01:44 AM
Brand new to the forums and been doing the regimin for about a week and a half now. (23 male)
To be totally honest my story is the same as most peoples on here, sick of Acne (mild to moderate), tried everything, diet, anti-biotics, topical...nothing works, stumbles accross acne.org decides 'whats the harm in trying?'
One of the reasons I didnt introduce myself as a member right at the start was I was very skeptical about the regimin working for me after exhausting so many options...after one week though and my acne is just fantastic! So here I am hoping to be a more active member of the community and help other people to see the benifits...
To cut to the long and short though, I have the following problem where I cant seem to find any instances where people are in the same situation:
After a week and a half my skin is dry/flakyish all over as expected (I know this should balance out) but there are 2 patchs on my face, about 2cm in diameter one on my forehead and the other on my cheek, where the skin is just red, puffy and itchy as anything. My only deviation from the regimin is to come back to these patchs and put on some more moisturiser or it just comes unbearable.
Just seems strange that this problem is so isolated. Im using Dans products, clense + treat + moisturise and nothing else. Has anyone any ideas to help me, or is it just a case of carry on and see if the problem persists?
Thanks to everyone for help in advance and hope to see you all on forums over the next few months)

New Regimen! Morning: 2 pumps Dan's cleanser in the shower, and "Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Hydrating Care" to moisturize, works to get me through the day without dry skin, but doesn't show, it's like there's nothing on my face, it's matt and doesn't shine. /// Night: 2/3 pumps Dan's cleaner in the shower, using the cleanser to shave with a 2 blade generic razor, end segment finger's worth of Dan's BP, 2 pumps Dan's moisturizer with 6 drops generic, organic jojoba oil. Sometimes just Dan's AHA+, or the usual application of Dan's BP with AHA+ on top if I'm feeling hardcore. /// 1 generic multivitamin, 30mg Zinc if the multivitamin doesn't contain it, 1/2 odorless garlic capsules, 2/3 EyeQ capsules (omega 3, 6, evening primrose oil,) Have been on lots of different prescriptions, most successful was oxytetracycline.
Dove summer glow morning
AHA+ (acne.org) night!
Awaiting 20% salicylic acid gel in post for chin and nose.
Acne isn't returning after almost 2 years on the regimen
Looking for treatments for oily skin however, I have that really bad

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that
I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.
