Should I Start Retin-A?

14 February 2015 - 07:06 PM

Ok so about a month ago I started taking a teaspoon of Green Pastures Cod liver oil mixed with butter oil a day. I have had 2 breakouts since in the form of tiny pustules which were not painful at all compared to the deeper cystic acne from before, hence I think the CLO is gradually working.

For the red marks left behind and perhaps to  safeguard against future breakouts I am looking to start retin-a perhaps every other day and build up.  Is it advisable or even beneficial to add retin-a on top of CLO since both contain vitamin A?


Note: I have used retin-a in the past with success but often stopped and moved onto other treatments with the smallest of breakouts.

Taking Accutane On Finasteride

14 December 2014 - 10:59 PM

Hi, I've been taking finasteride 1.25 mg every other day, to slow down my hairloss. It's become manageable somewhat. However recently my acne has begun to flare up, and even scarred a little. My dermatologist has suggested that I be placed on accutane. Is there a problem using these two in conjunction? It would be very worrying to know that in order to save my skin, I must sacrifice my hair. If anyone has had a similar experience, please comment below.


Thank you

Where To Buy Dermastamp?

24 August 2014 - 04:56 AM

Hi, I am interested in purchasing a dermastamp but I hear purchasing a dodgey one could do more bad than good.

So could anyone here who's experienced recommend where they purchased their dermastamp?


Also has anyone purchased from the site below and can testify?





Hairloss On Stieva-A / Retin-A

06 August 2013 - 07:08 AM

Hi, around 3 and a bit months ago i started Accutane, then when i noticed my hair starting to thin, immediately stopped it 2 and a half months in. From then i start to use Stieva-A, which is the same as retin-A, and i was wondering if there's any chance that a topical ointment could cause hairloss?  BTW I'm also using finacea for AM.

Will, the retinoid keep my vit-A levels high? and continue the hairloss?
