Topics I've Started

Neck Acne

22 May 2013 - 10:34 AM

So, I started my 3rd treatment with roaccutane about 10 days ago, now I have a big cyst, or nodule, honestly I don't know what it is. I know that roaccutane can be the cause of stronger acne in the first month or two, but this is the first time something this big popped.

I did have similar acne on my chest and back before, in the days when my skin was the worst, but this one bothers me quite bit. I have trouble moving my neck, kinda feels like my whole neck is stiff as rock.

I've been told that no topical can help against ones like those, in my experience that i agree with that. Maybe you could give me an advice what I could do to shrink the swelling.

Bacne. What Else Can I Try?

08 December 2012 - 07:30 AM

My face is somewhat under control, but my back keeps getting worse every week.

I get an allergic reaction to both AHA and BP. My skin is very reactive and sensitive, it reacts to most moisturizing cremes (anything from Nivea destroys me, the only products i can use come from Neutrogena).

I had bacne for about 6 years now and i haven't found anything that has a lasting effect, basically the only thing that had any effect where strong antibiotics

Down here i will try to recall everything i tried so far, both for my face and body acne.

Differin, Duac gel, Jomelop E, Retin-A, Azelaic Acid, Aloe vera, Lemon juice, Minocycline, Doxycycline, Tetracycline, Clindamycin, Roaccutane (14 moths in total), Vitamin B5, Exfoliating AHA product, Tazorac

I need the most sensitive treatment there is, I dont wont to bother with allergies anymore. My reactions are always the same or very similar, around 12 hours after trying a product my skin goes from my natural color to red and ends in a dark brownish, around 24hours after it has turned brown it starts to burn for at least another day. Once the burn subsides my skin starts to shed for the next two weeks until it returns to normal. I've obviously showed the reactions to my derm, but he said there is nothing he could give me for it, it's not dangerous in any way, in time it would go away.

Any help is very much appreciated-

Keloid Laser Surgery?

My back is covered in keloid scars, so I was wondering if laser surgery effects keloids as well?

Are Back Acne More Durable Than Face Acne?

28 April 2012 - 01:07 PM

After two treatments with roaccutane (8 months per treatment over the course of 2years) and DUAC gel my face finnaly cleared up and i haven't gotten a single cyst for at least 10months, just the occasional small pimpels which i don't mind at all, considering what i had to deal with these past 9 years.
The inflamed area is in the middle top part of my back. I had those same bumps all over my face and they vanished after killing myself with those antibiotics, but my back hasn't shown any change at all.
So i would like to please ask anyone who might have a solution or proposition what i could use, i don't really think there are any stronger pills to take, maybe some gels or lotions.
My second question is about keloids. As far i know they aren't directly linked to acne, they can show up at any skin injury. Pretty much every keloid u see was caused by a cyst, at least thats what i think. Is there any way to get rid of them? I've started using a lotion recently, it's produced in my region so i doubt it's known worldwide but i'll stil mention it, JOMELOP E. Maybe it will do the job but i wolud still love to hear if you have any other treatments i could try out Posted Image
I consider myself mentally strong but after 9 years of those "things" on my back, constantly bleeding, the torture and pain of putting on a simple shirt on me, it's really staring to get to me, my confidence and my will to fight agains those bumps is slowly fading,  so any help that would lower the intensity or cure me completely would be very much appreciated Posted Image
Thank you
