In Topic: Persistent Redness And Flushing On Accutane

16 January 2014 - 10:32 PM

Hi CWR24, thank you for your timely response. Much appreciated. I am quite relieved to hear that this is a common occurrence in Isotretinoin users and not something drastic like rosacea. I thought it was for quite some time because of the "rosacea-like" symptoms I've been experiencing. Such symptoms include constant redness, flushing (even when eating), tingling sensations, and always warm in the face. I started off taking 40mg a day month one and am now on 60mg a day.

In Topic: Can Anyone Help Me With Forehead Acne Or Get Rid Of It ? Please Help

02 September 2013 - 05:25 PM

Hi there Shansa3! I was in the same boat as you about a month ago with forehead acne; plus a little more spread around the face! So I went to my dermatologist after trying countless things and he wanted to prescribe me Clindamycin gel. I was very discouraged about that because I've tried just about every topical acne cream/gel EXCEPT Clindamycin, so I said FINE I'll try this and hope for the best. So what do you know!? It began working miracles. This gel is amazing!!! It's clear, it's gel, it's very quick at absorbing into the skin, it doesn't leave a residue on your face, and best of all IT DOESN'T IRRITATE YOUR SKIN! So if haven't already tried Clinamycin gel I highly recommend it as it has been a blessing for me. It is SO SIMPLE. I'm 18 and am getting my confidence back plus I'm starting college in October so this is a real big help for me!

Thank you so much EatsRainbows I will try those methods with my parents and hope for the best! If everything doesn't work out I will take it upon myself to get the medication because I can't live with this curse any longer. Thanks again :)

Hi EatsRainbows thank you for your response! I'll be sure to check out your log! You are exactly right on pictures not showing everything. There is allot more that didn't show up in the picture. I would absolutely love to give Accutane a go, however there is still a matter of my parents holding me back from taking the drug. Do you have any idea how I could work around that issue?
