In Topic: My Options: Atralin, Finacea Or Accutane

21 January 2015 - 10:32 PM

I figured I would provide an update on my progress. Its been about 5 months on Atralin and 6 weeks on Finacea. At around 4 months is when my skin really started to improve, I would have less than 5 active pimples at a time. Currently I am clear except for a few small cysts on my chin that have been there for weeks...they are hardly noticable though. I also have a lot of red marks on the sides of my cheeks but I am already noticing that they are fading. I'm guessing a few more months.

But yeah, it wasn't a steady progression with Atralin but at 5 months I am seeing more dramatic improvement. It was well worth the wait!



Atralin is good stuff isn't it? Better than the regimen imo. It's nowhere near as drying, but just as effective.

I use Atralin. It's easily the best topical I have ever tried and I'm never stopping it. Never tried Aczone, but I know Atralin works GREAT for me.

In Topic: Can P.acne Develop Any Resistance Against Benzoyl Peroxide ?

01 December 2014 - 11:58 PM

no, benzoyl peroxide does not get resistant against acne.   Your skin however may get sensitive to it which happened to me after a year.  I developed facial eczema that flared anytime i used topicals after i discontinued BP.  I now am able to use aczone and i'm trying to work myself up to using a retinoid.  With that said, be very careful with BP use as lone term it can make your overall skin much worse.



Yet Dan's skin is absolutely perfect....

In Topic: Why Hasn't Diet Had Any Effect On My Skin?

How come Alternavista hasn't replied?

Do we really need another Alternativista post stating the same thing, low GI diet, antioxidants, vitamin D, omega-3's etc. I have followed those things for well over 5 years, it does not have any effect on my acne. It's how you treat your skin externally, do not dry it, irritate it, don't destroy your good bacteria, keep your pores clear so that they don't get plogged. I think alternativista is a computer bot and has limited pre-made posts that are automatically posted, dead serious.



Finally someone who is actually sensible. Tretinoin? No way, I would much rather smear honey and lemons all over my face! Oh and, I would also like to change my diet even though it's almost impossible to pinpoint what it is that is actually causing acne. There's got to be tons of people who have been convinced that there is truth to all this, only to later wish that they had not wasted their time.
