fatigue and hair loss scare me most...my hair has been bad sonce some thyroid issues years ago (afraid of biotin as I was told avoid it..everything can cause breakouts!!)
Glad 25mg is working..seems like a low dose
I was thinking of asking derm about aczone
Ive never used it and it has never been rec to me
do u use it all over..I really want something preventative not just spot treating..ya know?
glad u found something that works so well for you!
yeah 25mg is supposed to be the starting dose but since it worked so well for me i might only go up to 50mg.
aczone is supposed to help with inflammation, you can use it all over but it was so expensive i use it pretty sparingly in my problem areas and usually just use it as a spot treatment. i dont rememeber how much it was since my parents paid but out of my spiro, retin-a and aczone, aczone was significantly more expensive than the other two.
i cant say i feel that aczone does much for prevention. its probably different since i dont always use it all over, but in my opinion acne is a symptom of somthing more internal and topicals dont really get to the root of the issue
spoke to my derm today and rec aczone am (before trying low dose bcp or spiro..than it sounded like she recs bcp and spiro together..id ont wnt to take 2 meds if I dont have to?)
also said start bcp first and may not need spiro but not against doing both
but still hoping can control with topicals
My skin is soooooo dry
just had a bad reaction to aloe and elta md
any light lotions that wont cause breakouts or clogged pores?
this might sound weird but ive been using extra virgin cold pressed avocado oil as a moisturizer! ive tried going back to regular moisturizers but its still pretty chilly where im going to school and my skin just wont have it with those drugstore moisturizers. coconut oil is also good
if youre interested you can watch this video, its how i got started on the oil-as-a-moisturizer thing. she puts a loooot of emphasis on the holistic lifestlye and going organic with everything and i know nobody really has time for that but i think she makes some good points on skincare in general
