In Topic: A Desperate Plea For Help My Son Has Severe Acne

10 February 2014 - 11:27 AM

As other's have mentioned the only thing that will work 100% for this is Accutane.

 

Other options to consider that haven't been mentioned are Narrowband UVB (which could be used for a few months and would likely work very well) and blue light photodynamic therapy (405 - 420nm).

 

I would be cautious about using too much BP on this as it may cause a lot of hyperpigmention, though would probably work quite well.

 

Also note the sideburns are free of acne so I would recommend not shaving the beard area and letting the hair grow out.

Sounds encouraging. Congrats if true.

 

I'm a little skeptical of first time posters claiming miracle cures though?

 

If you could post a photo of your quasar device and a proof of purchase that would definitely add credibility to your post....


In Topic: Does Acne Go After Facial Hair Growth?

06 January 2014 - 07:23 AM

Hey guys,

does acne go after facial hair growth? I only get those pustules on my cheeks, where I yet don't have hair, or anywhere where's my facial hair didn't grow much. and I rarely get pimple on my forehead. so is there any connection? and by the way did you notice that marks and shallow scars on the mouth area and the cheeks are more common?

 

cheers.

 

I would say yes. If your hair follicle contains a terminal hair, that follicle shouldn't be producing comedones as the hair effectively keeps the follicle open and sebum and skin cells can migrate upwards and outwards without obstruction.

 

It still might give you folliculitis though,


In Topic: Staphylococcus Epidermidis Causing Acne Vulgaris

The layer of skin where Staph Epidermidis resides is dead. The cells are dead. No blood supply, nothing.

 

Happy to be corrected but nothing you eat or drink is going to efffect a pathogen infecting a dead cell.

You have black dots on your nose which might be Trichostasis Spinulosa or just plain old Acne Vulgaris.
