In Topic: Minocycline

21 April 2013 - 11:23 PM

I was on it on and off last summer because i kept on forgetting to take it! but during the fall is when i started taking it everyday. I noticed results after the first month my acne was disappearing and then for the next two to three months i had no breakouts it was freaking amazing. I still had my previous acne scars but no current acne. Then things took a turn for the worse when i started growing facial hair and i decided to stop taking it. My acne came back with a vengeance after i stopped taking it within two weeks it was so bad! Still is actually, I want to go back on it but i don't want any more facial hair growth. Back to step one with the cleansers and topical acne meds. 


In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

28 March 2013 - 07:09 PM

Took accutane early at 31, was it worth it NO! Developed sjrogrens (permanently dry eyes mouth, joint pain etc) type 1 diabetic ( juvenile diabetes in my 30's). Life long diseases!

As for acne yep came back! Value you your life and health don't take it! Try light therapy/ look at the holistic fourm too!

Just keeping it honest:) good luck!

hey guys I haven't read through this whole topic because theres so many pages but i wanted to ask...For those of you who has taken accutane and your acne has significantly improved or is gone now, would you say taking it was worth it now that you are somewhat or are acne free? I haven't tried accutane but for me taking it will be my last ditch effort to get rid of my acne once and for all right now I'm prone to negative thoughts glass half empty sort of person so if i do take it, maybe, i think i would easily get depression which i do not want. In the mean time i'll try other acne treatments instead of taking the accutane 'cure' for acne

Acne is 100% diet related , if you are prone to acne then change that , eliminate dairy , junk food etc look on the holistic forums on here , and do yourself a favor and don't poison yourself for life trust me you will regret it once the permanent side effects kick in. Don't @#$% UP

your life over pimples , and read the link I provided ,  Acne is a cosmetic condition of the western world due to the JUNK ( Processed Food) we eat and is not found in nonwesternized populations and that is a fact something Derms don't want to tell you for obvious reasons $$$$.

I took Accutane for three months over a year and a half ago. I still have hair loss, dandruff, brain fog, headaches, dry eyes, dry skin, sensitive skin, cracking joints, etc... And it didn't even clear up my acne. I'm only 21 and I feel three times my age. Did I mention that I have been off the medication for over a year and a half!?

 

Try some significant lifestyle changes first. Drink a shit ton of water. Cut out added sugars, gluten, hormones, and other crap. Research supplements (since my acne is hormonal and I have low estrogen, evening primrose oil is what ultimately cleared me up.) Because if you don't, you might become one of us. Trust us.

ok thanks for the warnings and that sucks that it didn't even get rid of the acne just gave you guys worse side effects. I wish there was a test you could take before taking accutane to show whether you would be more prone/predisposed to get the worse side effects or none at all.

In Topic: (How Acne Affected My Life) & I Want To Believe That I Can Live With My A...

24 March 2013 - 01:31 AM

Can't really relate I've had acne forever serisously it sucks because the only pictures of me with clear skin are my pre-pubescent days from the ages of 1 to 10 then it all went down hill when i turned 11 acne so much more acne from that age to now I'm 19 going to be 20 soon. Maybe its a good thing that i've lived with acne for my whole life basically because I'm used to it and nobody really cares that much, sure i see them staring but it doesn't bother me since i'm used to it. I only got the mean comments about my acne from the ages of 11 - 14 basically all of middle school after that less mean comments maybe a few here or there but middle school was the worst. I have no idea whats causing my acne but i do know i can live with it because i have been living with it for my entire preteen and teen life going onto adult life sadly. If i was like a normal teen who had clear skin then suddenly acne i would be devastated. I cant even imagine how i would look like with clear skin i do dream about it a lot sometimes but then i end up changing the way i see myself and i become a different person completely probably because i desperately want to be just some normal girl without this messed up image about myself and crippling low self esteem eh i can only dream since there no real cure maybe accutane but thats too risky for me.


In Topic: Meanest thing that someone has said about your acne

03 November 2012 - 01:28 AM

not really mean but funny sorta
I was waiting outside of a restaurant and a tamale vendor lady asked if i wanted anything and i said no and she then proceeded to tell me about her acne cure in broken English she said to wake up every morning and put my own saliva all over my face wait for it to dry then wash it off and she was going to demonstrate and put her nasty saliva on my face but i backed away oh no but i took all this politely but when she walked away i just laughed so freaking hard i found it hilarious
anyways the meanest thing i would say is being called pizza face a million times
or when the acne conversation comes up with all my acne free friends saying how much they hate acne and cant resist popping their pimples when they do get menstrual acne and i just shy away and stay quiet because whenever that conversation comes up i feel like a spotlight is on me and i cant get away plus those conversations always seem to last forever to me and also it makes me feel less attractive if all my beautiful friends are saying all these things sorta like when a skinny girl says shes fat in-front of a fat girl totally lowers my self esteem
