Topics I've Started

What Next

24 July 2013 - 07:31 AM

I've tried minocycline, oxytetracycline, accutane and erythromycin; what can I ask for next? Erythromycin worked great; accutane worked great until I started to lose hair, minocycline did nothing and I had a severe reaction to oxytetracycline. Ideally I'd like to avoid tetracycline-based antibiotics, and I don't really like topical creams (how the hell are you gonna reach your back too btw). Any suggestions would be great :) (also I'm with a GP, not a dermatologist)

Cysts In Sideburns

10 July 2013 - 07:49 AM

So my skin is pretty much 98% clear except that I constantly get cysts in my sideburn area! Even if I don't shave the little bit in front of my ear so it's an extension of my hairline it'll turn into a horrible cyst and end up with a clump of hair coming out and just being generally disgusting.


Any advice on how to stop/prevent this? :(

Hairloss Within One Month Of Accutane.

07 July 2013 - 03:27 PM

So as you can tell from the title I've been getting hairloss :( my perfectly rounded hairline has began to recede! I've stopped taking my tablets but i'm sort of leaning towards a low dose course as I've spent £200 on tablets :( what's everyone's opinions? I was thinking if i moisturise my scalp with coconut oil every other night, take biotin, zinc and vitamin c maybe i can minimise hair shedding? :(

Accutane And Olive Oil

03 July 2013 - 04:36 AM

I haven't been able to find a definitive amount of fat recommended to be consumed with isotretinoin so I'm asking for estimations;


Currently I'm taking 60mg first thing in the morning with half a pint of semi-skimmed milk and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil; is this enough? I'm not really a big morning eater unless there's an abundance of biscuits around and I'm too forgetful to split my dosage up into the daytime.


Thanks for any replies :)
