In Topic: Epiduo Queries & Journey

12 October 2013 - 04:20 PM

  • Has anyone else experiences the severe side effects I've experienced?
  • I've read that the redness, itching, and peeling are common side effects but what about swelling?
  • Is there anything I can do to reduce the side effects? Especially the swelling?
  • Is this normal?

I've been using Epiduo for more than 3 months. I've got to admit that, even today, I can hardly apply it more than 3 times a week, because it burns like hell.

So redness, itching, swelling and peeling are, to my opinion, common side effects.

To reduce the side effects, moisturize a lot, and do not apply it every night.

 

By the way, the application must be progressive, it's even written on the notice.

And, trust me, apply it every week won't make improve your skin faster, your face would just look like a slice of tomatoe on a baked pizza hahahahahahahahahaha.

 

So relax, and be gentle with your skin!


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

What im worried about is how they'll react when the see my face full of marks and some active acne.

They won't care about it, I swear.

But I know it's hard, and that in your head it must sound like "I'm just an ugly and huge spot walking on the street". But you're no

 

Never going to have a girlfriend with the way I look.

There are plenty of people here who have acne AND a BF or GF.

Clear skin can bring self-confidence, I cannot deny it does (and trust me I'm not on this forum for nothing...), but, still, it's not what will make someone like you or not.

And by the way, I deeply understand what you've just said...

Day 2: another good day, skin is starting to improve!

Glad to hear that!

 

Maybe it's healing slowly

It's surely does! It always seems too long!

 

 

Hey, I need to join in in this challenge. I pick at every little imperfection and create a total mess. Right now my face is very red with small scabs all over my chin and jawline whistling.gif(

We're on the same boat!

Right now my chin is a total disaster after picking, and I can feel a spot growing on my cheek: youhou!

thanks for the replies. yeah guys, the damage (scars) i've caused on my cheeks have made me really depressed, i am a strong guy and today i've felt like crying when looking at it in the mirror.

Don't worry, we're all in there. Right now it's my chin. I try to control myself not to pick at my cheek.

 

i just HATE having spots on my face, oddly i can deal with a white head that is ready to blow, but cannot stand the ones that show no head and just make the surface of your skin red... wtf is with those..

Those are the worst!
