In Topic: Doxy=Scarring/marks?

05 April 2013 - 10:29 PM

I took doxy for about 3 or 4 months a few years ago - can't remember how many mg though. I don't remember it causing red marks or anything for me. But I already had a tendency for that to happen anyway. Are you using anything else / any topicals that might be causing or contributing to the developing of red marks?
When I stopped taking doxy I was still clear for about a month after that but then acne started coming back - it wasn't actually any worse than before I started doxy but it felt like it was worse at first because I'd been able to enjoy relatively clear skin for a while because of doxy. 
So yeah you're acne might return, unfortunately, but hopefully you'll be able to have some time of clear skin before that happens. It was around a month for me but I've heard of people whose clear skin from antibiotics lasted a lot longer than that after they stopped them

Epiduo is my Topical, I apply that at night only. Then I use cetaphil moisturizer & gentle cleanser.

Ivw been using epiduo for awhile now before I even started doxy & never had red marks

And i hope that doesn't happen..

In Topic: Is It Important To Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize, Even If You Don't Have Acne?

No! Don't go down that road.

Don't listen to exister he just posted a topic that says he don't even moisturize...

Anyway I do agree in the sense that its not good to start using All these different products

However it is important to moisturize Don't matter what.

If its from changing your diet then you can't really do anything but let your body adjust to it.

In Topic: Cigarette Smoke And Red Skin - A Link?

31 March 2013 - 12:07 PM

Thanks for the reply smile.png
Yeah, unfortunately I don't think it would be possible to tell everyone to piss off because I have shit skin tongue.png sometimes if i'm in their presence then they'll go outside because they know I don't smoke and I don't like it. But if I'm upstairs for example, 
Does anyone know if there's anything biological that might actually make this link I fabricated true? Like, does cigarette smoke wear down or damage the skin, making it vulnerable to such problems?

There was a study which showed 42% of smokers suffered from acne. High % to be frank but fails to explain why 58% of smokers don't suffer from acne. 

Maybe cuz people with acne stress & decide to smoke to relieve stress?

Could be an allergic reaction? Maybe to something you've ate or anything. It'd be easier to help you if you posted a picture.
