In Topic: 2.0 Derma Roller At Home....safe?

Today, 06:50 AM

I've only used the 1.5mm, and I worked up to that

if you are an experienced user and you are keeping things sterile and are meticulous about cleaning your skin prior, then you proceed at your own risk....but you have to be CRAZY about things being sterile, and I'd toss the roller and get a new one each time you roll

In Topic: Red Inflamed Scarring On Chest

Yesterday, 07:45 PM

I like an AHA like the one on this site acne.org AHA or use the Alpha Hydrox one...my skin is tough, especially my back chest and shoulders and I use this twice a day...every day

seriously try it (patch test first) once a day, then move up to twice a day if you don't have a reaction...I really think in 30 days you'll notice a big difference

good luck to you!

In Topic: My Dermatologist And Parents Are Forcing Me To Eat Foods That Will Trigger Acne?

Yesterday, 07:38 PM

no one can tell you how your body will react to any food...it just doesn't work that way

gluten and dairy absolutely are an issue for me and trigger cysts....I know this, and my dermatologist (two of them) insists that can't be the case-  okay sure

you have to go on an elimination diet, sell it to your mother that you want to try to not eat any dairy for 30 days, and see what happens, get your parent involved as well....after 30 days if no change then you probably can eat dairy....then eliminate gluten for 30 days and see what happens

but no one can tell you if you will react to any foods...good luck to you but this you must figure out on your own

In Topic: Severe Neck Acne, Cystic/nodule?, Advice? (Pictures)

yes, been there but also had cysts on the jawline....yes get an apt w/ a derm ASAP - you will likely have to start with antibiotics and topicals before you get Accutane

Accutane is a miracle for most, sadly it didn't work for me and I had to go the hard way - turns out my triggers were dairy and gluten

while you wait for the appointment why not eliminate both of those from your diet for 30 days, no harm there- and if no difference then these aren't your triggers

acne is a terrible foe, it has different triggers for all of us-  but do go see a derm, good luck to you and keep us posted
