#3348034 Accutane - 3 Weeks Left, Before And After!

Posted by txngrl on 12 May 2013 - 09:35 PM

Congratulations, you look great!   Can I ask how bad it was on your back? My son has it bad on his back & he's on day 41.  I'm concerned but I know (from what they tell me) the back is the last to clear.  Do you have any before/after photos of your back?


#3324706 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by txngrl on 05 February 2013 - 06:42 PM

Hello everyone!   Well, I took my son to get a blood test, and the results came back today... his Vit. D level is 32  :(    But I'm actually kinda glad, b/c it gives me hope that maybe we're on the right track, and maybe just maybe, that's why his skin has been so oily and constantly breaking out...

 

Today is day #11 of supplementing, and I *think* it's looking better.... looking less oily, and he doesn't seem to be getting new lesions as quickly on his face.  The ones he IS getting seem to be smaller, more superficial bumps that come to a head quicker and go away faster... but I don't want to speak too soon.  I can only hope it keeps getting better.

 

HOWEVER, his back looks horrible still, and his neck/shoulders also...  Chest is broken out too, but not nearly as bad as his back.  I will keep him on this regimen for several more weeks and pray that everything keeps improving!   I'm not super worried about his back right now, as it's not swimming season, but as it gets closer to summer, I will be more concerned about it.  He loves to go swimming, and we live in the South where it gets really hot..  redface.gif

It looks like an allergic reaction, maybe to the sulfites.  Glad it's gone now smile.png

 

Try organic wine and see if it happens again.
