In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

25 March 2013 - 11:05 PM

About 3 new pimples. Cannot wait for summer so I can finally get off these stupid topicals and antibiotics for accutane round 2. Pretty scared of the horrendous IB plus the post anti biotic flare up though. The next three months are going to be rough...

In Topic: Antibiotics?

31 October 2011 - 05:26 PM

I was on minocycline for 6 months and began breaking out shortly after. I stopped antibiotics immediately, and began breaking out like mad before I was able to get on Accutane. I'm in my 3rd week of Accutane right now and let me tell you...the breakout from getting off of antibiotics+IB from Accutane will be killer. I was only on antibiotics for around half a year and I thought that was too long, but I see that you've been on them for quite some time...so I think you would be making the right choice to stop. I hope you don't experience the same breakouts as I did though...good luck!

In Topic: Has Any One Ever Been Prescribed Prednisone?

30 October 2011 - 06:32 PM

My derm wouldn't prescribe me Prednisone no matter how much I asked, she said that dermatologists never prescribe steroids to cure acne unless it was like severe acne or a bad reaction to accutane. I've heard a ton of positive feedback from the drug though, even though there are risks to taking the steroid I don't see them outweighing the emotional impact from acne as long as you're not on it too long. In any case...I don't really trust my derm anyway, considering she left me on antibiotics for forever.

Well bad news is it got a bit worst last night, for some reason all my of previous and forming acne all decided to inflame. Any advice on how to reduce the redness? Would taking Advil help?

In Topic: Are Antibiotics Only A Temporary Solution? And How Bad Are The Risks

29 October 2011 - 03:22 PM

Yes antibiotics are only a temporary solution, and from what I and many others like RCRanger experienced, your acne comes back much worst. If you're looking only to clear your acne then stop, then it shouldn't be that bad.
