Food Intolerance Test

05 October 2014 - 04:51 AM

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?


Does This Happen To Anyone Else?

12 April 2014 - 10:08 PM

people here claim how much oily thier skin is, but if thier problem is just that thier skin is getting oily because of that they are very lucky in my mind.

 

the oiliness itself is nothing. sure, my skin is so oily that even when i took accutane i almost never used moistorizer. im so oily that my blocked pores has blocked pores.

people ask me if im sick or i just ran or did some sport.

 

but to me it also causes by far the worst thing that can happen to a person - my insane oilness causses these small hard white pointy clusters of sebum to very slowly emerge from my skin on my nose and cheeks, i can either pull it out or wait some monthes for it to be released on its own, but the result with be the same: a scar and another one will soon enough grow again and makes things even worse... to no end.

 

i hope you dont need me explaining what happens to somebodys face after several years of this or why its the worst thing that can happen to a person.

 

im starting to think im the only one having this because ive seen alot of people with acne and never seen them with that shitty thing, but maybe they had it in a much smaller scale, like only little on the nose and not alot all over the nose and cheeks so i didnt notice.

 

so, does anyone else have this thing? and is there anything can be done about it?( im pretty damn sure no, cuz i tried everything )


Will Tretinoin Be Effective?

17 December 2013 - 12:55 AM

hi there, my main problem is that i have very oily skin (especially nose and forehead), lots of blocked pores and blackheads.

im gonna try start using tretinoin and i wanted to know from people here - how effective is it for dealing with extreme oily skin,blackheads,blocked pores?

i will try it just on my nose where its worst and maybe later on ill put it on more areas..

 

ive been told it acts kinda like accutane but locally on the skin where i put it, is that really a good description for it?


How Can Jojoba Oil And Other Oils Even Work?

27 October 2013 - 06:20 PM

i have very oily skin (especially nose and forehead) and i tried jojoba oil and it sucked cuz all it did it is to make me break out..

 

the thing is, i wanna know how the hell people with oily skin reported it makes thier skin less oily? it makes no sense so i wonder if its not total bullshit.

 

the usual claim is that it makes the skin less oily since its similar to the sebum from our body then it causes the body to produce less sebum, but that claim is completly absurd and heres why:

 

if having a sebum-like substance (like jojoba oil) on my skin makes my skin less oily, why then, having plenty of 100% exactly original sebum that should suit better (since its 100% match) as a result of the skin being very oily in the first place doesnt make the skin less oily?

 

we know that it doesnt work cuz all of us poor bastards with oily skin would quickly get thier skin to be less and less oily, and that doesnt happen of course.
