In Topic: My Epiduo experience

16 January 2012 - 06:44 PM

call me crazy but i wash my face with head & shoulders and then apply epiduo and i still dont get any burns or irritation like everyone here talks about. there was an initial breakout but its minimal considering head & shoulders dries your face quite a bit so the acne you do get is very small and dried up. my advice to people starting out would be to wash with h&s shampoo, then apply a PEA size of epiduo before bed. i stress PEA because you only need a smidgen of this stuff for it to work. also try to spread it as thinly as possible and do not use any moisturizer unless your skin starts to crack from h&s. like bp, your skin should get used to it though.

In Topic: Second hand smoking and acne. What do you think?

no. second hand smoke is even a debatable issue whether it causes increased risk of lung cancer.

No good explanation really. Accutane is a really weird drug, it's up and down. It might be your body responding to accutane fighting your hormone fluctuations.

I still get the pimple here and there and I'm on my 5th. I had a breakout on my ear today! But anyways, just take the extra month. How's the oiliness, is your face really dry? I'd keep taking it until you  are clear, and by clear meaning you haven't had a real breakout in weeks. The pimple here and there is fine.
