If You Found The Cure For Acne..

14 posts in this topic

Would you patent it and try to get rich from it, or give it away to the world like Dr. Jonas Salk did when he cured Polio?

Personally, I hate the pharmaceutical industry and would LOVE to help millions of people for nothing. I think it would be the best feeling ever.

I understand you, but I don't think you understand the pharmaceutical companies. It takes a lot of money (A LOT) to research and develop those medicines and drugs. Once they get FDA approval (after many trials and costs), they deserve to make a profit from it. There's so many experiments that cost them millions that failed or didn't pan out the way they wanted.

Love everyone crashoran:)))

I agree to a great extent that it costs a lot to research/invent new medicines/products and that the person who puts themself on the line (financially and professionally) deserves SOMETHING. I also think that the medical "industry" has been blown out of proportion, just like the government, and that the "happy medium" between corporate greed and socialism probably can't be mantained easily (at least in the world we live in now). It'd be nice if more inventors weren't in it solely for the money, but then some of their inventions are taken over or absorbed into larger enterprizes who then refuse to use their product/medicine for the public good but rather for profit. Don't know that there is a real answer out there... except for... REVOLUTION!!! ;D (jk - sorta)

If I found the cure I would tell everyone about it on acne.org...which I've been doing.

Acne is a hormonal issue. Fix the hormones, the acne disappears. I'm living proof.

No crazy diets or paranoid behavior required.

I am very happy that you are having success with Spironolactone. I know what a relief it can be to finally find something that works well. It's a huge burden removed, isn't it.

Keep in mind that Spiro is definitely not a cure. When the day comes that you need to get off that medication, your acne is likely to return. A lot of women have success with it, and many do not, but just like all of these other treatments Spiro is a treatment and not a cure.

Also, it's not very nice of you to imply that people who treat their acne with diet or any other method are "crazy" or "paranoid". We're all here to help and support one another, not demean anyone for their efforts.

Staying on a hormonal treatment for the rest of your life or staying on a very particular diet for the rest of your life is still doing something for the rest of your life in order to avoid acne. I've never said that you can take spiro short-term and that it will stop your acne. In every single informative post about spiro I have stated that spiro is MEANT to be taken LONG-TERM and that as soon as you go off it the acne comes back. Search my posts if you want. I've never said otherwise. In the same vein, a strict diet is not a "cure." As soon as you go off the diet, the acne comes back.

When I said crazy, I mean crazy in the sense of "impractical" which part of the second dictionary definition of the word. I was on strict Paleo for a number of years, and I would consider it highly "crazy" or "impractical" to try to eat that way in our modern society with an average lifestyle and budget. I say that from experience. Eating on Paleo was HARD and took a huge chunk of time, effort, and money just to eat. I did not mean crazy in the "you're a lunatic" sense.

As for paranoid, I would say that sitting around icing cysts, applying chemicals to your face multiple times a day, being afraid to ever touch your face or let your face touch anything while sleeping, etc. is "paranoid" behavior. Pretty much everyone on this board is paranoid that the next thing they do is going to cause a breakout. Whether that's drinking milk, or missing their nightly round of BP, or stressing about the fact that they're stressed and the stress is causing breakouts...yeah it IS paranoid. I know because I've been there. I'm not demeaning anyone, but am I glad I don't have to get OCD about my face anymore? You bet.

Lack of vitamins, zinc and thymus. Figure out ways to boost them and you should be clear.

I get what you're saying Green, however in your post that I quoted you implied that Spiro was a cure. I think it's important that we not imply something is a cure, since there is no cure for acne at this time.

I'm certainly not offended by anything you said, however some people might take offense to your wording.

The "cure" is not what you take, it's what you don't take. In other words, find what your allergic to that is causing your Acne. For me it's Wheat, others found it to be Milk, Soybean, Coffee, Tooth Fillings, or Medication. The list goes on. It's just a type of Rash/Allergic Reaction.

COMPLETELY agree with this. Completely.

I am currently trying a "crazy" paleo diet, and i dont know what to do if it doesnt work. For gables, all she has to do is take sprioncolatone, and she is clear.

I am so paranoid that i rarely play sports, or contact sports afraid that someone might hit my body acne.

I am living in fear all the time

There probably is a cure out there but the acne treatment industry is a multi-billion dollar one. I buy creams and washes every month that have a reasonable effect at best. I keep pumping money in to the machine because I have a job and I don't know what the alternative would be. I don't have six months to hide away and stop washing my face with acne washes and see what would happen without so I keep buying.

If companies are making billions every year off creams, medicines etc that people need to continue to buy to control their acne and someone in a laboratory somewhere has a eureka moment and finds a cheap (And it will be cheap) way of curing acne, the first thing that will happen is that whoever owns clearasil or pro-active or whatever will show up on their doorstep and say "We'll give you five million dollars a year for the rest of your life to keep quiet". And to be honest, I'd probably take the money.
