Where to start?...

 

I have just come off Accutane in March and now I am back to square 1, I have spots again. sad.png

 

I have since tried Vitamin D3 at 3200iu a day for 4 months, Zinc 45mg a day for over a year, Vitamin C 1000mg a day for over a year. I am now trying witch hazel with 600mg dispersible aspirin as a toner am and pm.

 

I got the idea from acne.org, this website has been so helpful to me with such a wealth of information, the best thing is that the information comes direct from people who suffer with spots/acne/oily skin. I have come to understand that not everything works on everyone, so I am still trying out different products to see what will help.

 

Being honest I have been using the witch hazel and aspirin toner for over a week, so this is still new for me I haven't noticed a difference yet. I am also using prescription topicals, Finacea in the am and Epiduo in the pm this is a new routine for me too just under a week. I'm hoping these steps help. I'll keep this post updated.  

 

Good luck to everyone suffering!

Just a little update...

I can see that my new routine is helping, I'm getting less new spots/pimples. I have made a slight change in routine as I'm getting a slightht tingling/burning sensation on my face but I still use the aspirin and witch hazel toner twice a day but I now only use the epiduo every other night to see if it will help. I have only missed one night, so I can't feel a difference yet.

I still have very oily skin, I'm blotting and using powder to control it as best I can. I'm very self conscious about it but I know here is not a lot I can do, apart from going back on Roaccutane, but I'll be able to get another referral next year but I don't really want to go back on it again. We'll see, I'm goin to keep looking for something that will help reduce the oil.

I hope everyone else is having better luck than me. Xx

What kind of makeup are you wearing? Have you checked to see if there are any comedogenic (or acne-inducing) ingredients in them?

 

I'm sorry you're struggling! But you're not alone, and you're definitely right about how much information this site has to offer.

Usually people go through two cycles of accutane, however personal opinion I refuse to ever take that drug. But, Im also trying new Products. Ive been on PanOxyl BP 10% face wash and its been working for about a year until recently I noticed more breakouts and Im eating healthier than when I started. Im thinking of trying the Acne.org Regimen soon but have heard mixed things about it. Anyways best of luck trying to switch it up its always a pain.
