In Topic: 20Mg Accutane + Differin + Clindamycin

when you are on Accutane, even a low dose, your skin will be dryer...no need to dry it all, just stick to the spots

I think it's a very good approach, low dose....please keep us posted!

In Topic: Should I See A Doctor?

it's really not that bad, and it's not cystic....next time I get one the size of a marble deep under the skin I will send you a picture

seeing a derm is a good idea, try to avoid the anti biotics....stick to topicals - while you wait for the appointment really give the acne.org regiment a try- with your mild acne it just may help

my advice, no matter what the ailment, educate yourself-  and you go armed with what you need to do

to me they just write prescriptions, I do all of the research and heavy lifting

so fingers crossed-  but I would ditch dairy all together if I were you-  get an almond milk or coconut milk...but hey you know your body/skin best

some other advice from a long time cystic acne sufferer-  when the bump starts, go get an injection of kenalog- find a good derm who is very skilled at this, trust me I've had a LOT of shots, when you find a good one you'll know it.....that for me takes it right out in 24-48 hours....now if you are getting 2 or 3 a week then we have to go another way

good luck, and let's hope it's on the way out!

In Topic: Please Help, Nasty Red Scar On Neck

far from nasty-  but I get it-  you've had it a while, it will take time to fade-  use an AHA daily, like the one on acne.org, or look for the red box product alpha hydrox, get a 10% AHA-  start slow once a day, patch test first before you put all over....then wear a sunscreen daily!

it will fade, takes time, this jump starts the time!
