In Topic: Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

14 October 2014 - 07:08 PM

Hey there guys, I've been taking vitamin d3 (dry form, daily dosage of 2000 IU) for about a week now, and all I've experienced so far are new breakouts located around the mouth and chin areas (where I seldom break out usually). I've heard so many success stories about vitamin d3 that I thought I would give it a try, but it seems to have negative effects on my skin. I can't expose my skin to the sun because it turns red and irritated (I have hypersensitive and oily skin). Did any of you guys experience a "initial breakout" while on vitamin d3 pills during the first week or did your acne clear up right away? I'm thinking I should discontinue my intake of vitamin d3 if it still gives me new breakouts by the end of week 2. Also, my acne is not genetic (nobody in my family or even extended family has had or has acne) nor is it hormonal (I've had my testosterone and estrogen levels checked three times last year). I don't know what's causing my acne which I've had for 9 years since age 10. I thought I would outgrow it, but people keep telling me I won't, so I'm losing hope. Thank you for your replies, I appreciate

i didnt experience an "initial breakout", but i also didnt experience any change in my skin from taking vitamin d3.. so its not working for everyone.

its like alot of things where u hear about only the success stories, but u dont know for what % of the people who tried this it worked.


In Topic: Acne Scars Are Making Me Depressed

Scars aren't as bad as acne - no pain, no huge red bumps, no whiteheads, I could go on.
Yes scars are not ideal, but a large majority of people have them for whatever reasons. The people who make cruel comments have nothing else going on in their lives so they choose to make others upset with them. Even if your scarring is more moderate or severe, it shows how far you've come dealing with your acne, try and think positively. If anything, focus on one day going to see a derm yourself when you have the ability to, or maybe making a compromise with your parents about paying them back for scar treatments later on. I hope you find peace with your scars for now.

 

 

>>Please don't be depressed they are just scars be happy you are cured embrace everyday and live it to the fullest cause you never know when it may com

wow...just scars? its SCARS ON THE FACE. scars are way worse than acne. it stay forever on ur face no matter what

u do.

i think its better then having acne and im just saying dont let the scars ruin your life if you can help it cause you made it thru acne...chill

it pissed me off because u probally dont have any significant scarring, so u cant possibly understand. its like some1 who never had acne told u he understand whats its like having acne.. now u get it?

 

also, u shouldn't assume that just because i state that scars are worse (they are FOR LIFE) than acne, that i dont have active acne. and i am sure any1 with enough scarring would agree with me that scars are worse.


In Topic: Good Looking People With Acne

Would you honestly say that Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt would be unattractive if they had acne? 

they would not look good at all if they have severe acne and serve acne scarring. maybe they will look ok from a distance.


In Topic: Food Intolerance Test

06 October 2014 - 04:44 PM

i am currently on a low dosage of accutane (10 mg) and i will probally stop taking it in 1-2 month. i am sure that after i will finish taking it my skin will turn crazy oily again and my skin will go bad. i already noticed how my skin got abit oily after i lowered from 40 mg to 10 mg.

 

so im desperate for a solution and i wanna try taking a food intolerance test and eliminate the bad foods for me, and see if it helps.

 

i found out i can do a test for about 500$ for 200 different foods in some private lab.

 

i have 3 main corcerns:

 

1. is it ok if i do the test while on accutane?

 

2. for that much money i wanna know this test is legit but i dont know much about these tests, so how do i know the test i found is good?

all these igg food intolorence tests r pretty much the same?? are there ones that r particularly less good than others?

what is ur experience with those tests?

I would wait till i was off accutane for a few months before testing just to ensure the results weren't skewered.  Also, you want the intolerance test vs the allergy one as food allergies can be pretty severe most of the time while intolerances could  contribute to acne if those foods are continuously eaten.

 

Good Luck.  Be aware that food is not the only cause of acne so don't be disappointed if it doesn't solve all your issues.

well, i have my reasons to really not wanna w8 several months for this test.

can u pls give me some information as to why and how would accutane affect this test? i need to know.
