In Topic: Back "acne" / Possible Solution, But..

04 January 2015 - 03:24 AM

I have been through a very similar situation as what you describe. First derm was insistent on antibacterial treatments. Kept trying them for about a year with no improvement / worsening of condition. Went to a second derm for a second opinion. Second derm did some small biopsies which confirmed the issue was fungal. Ketoconazole shampoo and oral antifungal med have pretty much cleared up my problem. You should get a second opinion from another derm. You need to know (with certainty) what is the nature of your issue so proper treatment can be prescribed. Visual assessment may not be adequate. Good luck.

A grocery store will have many things you can eat at a dorm and still meet your dietary requirements.

In Topic: Moisturizer Restricted To Age?

I found this moisturizer( http://www.gerovital...ream-p/2300.htm) that on it's page clearly says it's for age 20+. So I was wondering can I use it since I'm only 15? Does it contain some chemicals that can cause problems to persons under the age of 20?


The cream has reverse aging properties. If you use it at age 15 it will transform you to look like a pre-teen.

Did Brad Pitt Is Maked Execution?  Huh.....what does that mean.

In Topic: Back Acne For (Years?)

20 December 2014 - 03:15 AM

It took that long because the first derm only did a visual assessment and prescribed antibacterial treatments (doxycline, clindamycin, etc) when in reality my problem was fungal. My condition actually worsened because bacteria was wiped out, allowing fungas to thrive (the two compete for real estate on your body). After 1.5 years of this I went to a different derm for a second opinion. He did a biopsy and determined my issue was fungal. From that point it took about a year to get me cleared up. Sometimes I still have minor flare ups that occur, particularly in hot weather.

I don't feel qualified to answer the question about taking doxycyline and terbinafine at the same time. You need to do a bit of investigation on that one....
