I'm not the antibiotic authority.  Ask a derm.  AND, my signature states I do not respond to PMs.  Do not send me any more at all.

i never said you were the antibiotic authoriy... just wanted your opinion on matters. I don't get why you have to come off as so mean.

Because you don't listen and have sent me umpteen million PMs already.

Stop basking in your misery and continue to seek help.  I'm totally done with this thread.

Sadly, mainstream medicine usually tailors the diagnosis to meet the available treatment. Most doctors function as bureaucrats, shoving patients into pigeonholes and then dishing out whatever the "high priests" of their profession have decided is the right drug/ operation for that pigeonhole. Whether diagnosis is accurate or meaningful, or treatment effective doesn't matter at all. Basically, mainstream medicine is the labelling and treatment of symptoms. As such, it can never move beyond the management of ill health. That suits many doctors (and all drug companies) just fine: patients, who fully recover, aren't very profitable. ...

Patently false.  There's a great deal of pride in getting a patient to recover fully and to save lives.

#2966358 do nodules/cysts go away or does the core have to be extracted?

Posted by Wynne on 16 October 2010 - 08:51 AM

Squeezing a cyst is an excellent way to get indented, permanent scarring.  They CAN go away on their own.  For really bad ones, either go to a derm/GP for cortisone injection or SURGICAL, professional extraction, or try the tips in my signature, the link that starts "What to do.."

#2959291 Exfoliating on the Regimen - Is it okay?

Posted by Wynne on 01 October 2010 - 09:02 PM

Q: How do I get rid of the red/dark marks left after the blemish goes away?
A: You can visit the red marks message board for discussion and suggestions, but before you do, please read the biggest mistakes page. Try your best to avoid adding in products and new methods until you're completely clear of active acne. The most important goal regarding red marks is to prevent future acne and thus prevent future red marks from forming in the first place. Here is a quote from the American Academy of Dermatology and Roche Laboratories regarding red marks:

"A red mark on the skin called an erythematous macule will fade in four to six months after an acne outbreak - but it may get temporarily redder when your skin gets hot or when you exercise. This red macule is not a scar, and is not permanent. In a dark skinned person, the macule may appear as a darker patch on the skin. This is not a scar, either."

People with darker skin tend to suffer with these marks more often. For more information on post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, click here.

Re: microdermabrasion:
Q: Can I get microdermabrasion treatments while on the Regimen?
A: I very highly recommend that you do not. Microdermabrasion creates unnecessary irritation. Irritation from microdermabrasion treatments can perpetuate the acne cycle. A much better way to exfoliate the skin is to simply add glycolic acid into the Regimen after 3-4 weeks. If you add it before this amount of time has passed, it can sting badly, so be sure to wait. Glycolic acid is an acid derived from sugarcane which provides incredible chemical exfoliation. I prefer chemical exfoliation to manual exfoliation because it helps you avoid irritation of the skin's surface. Plus, glycolic acid actually helps me with my acne symptoms and is a welcome addition to the Regimen.

#2867413 "Hot or Not" threads will be closed.

Posted by Wynne on 11 May 2010 - 09:06 PM

It has come to the attention of the moderators that some members profess to not understand why certain threads are closed.

Acne.org policy regarding what we like to call "Hot or Not" threads: "Hot or Not" threads will be closed. Not only are the threads counterproductive to the original poster, but over the years we have seen those types of threads devolve into: 1. Bragging and fishing for compliments, 2. Bickering, name-calling and even calling out, 3. Very little useful advice, 4. No relation to acne whatsoever. There's a Lounge for off-topic posts. We understand that you may feel down about your acne but please try to understand how your thread could affect other people's perceptions of themselves.

Threads where members post pictures of themselves and ask to be rated by their peers only reaffirm that we are only as good as what other people think of us. And besides that, "Hot or Not" threads have a tendency to attract trolls and instigate bickering.

Obtain your self esteem from accomplishments and abilities, not just appearances.

This policy pertains to the whole board, not just the Emotional and Psychological Effects of Acne board.

There are plenty of sites for you to post images of yourself for others to rate. Acne.org is not one of those sites.

I have dry flaky red cheeks and the doctor tell me to just apply vaseline and let it heal by itself ( i know ..... what kind of dr. is tat)

but yea so what is the best kind of vaseline for your face?

The one that says "100% petrolatinum jelly"  (sorry about the spelling)

Yes, that's the correct one.  Petrolatum jelly.

The vaseline protects the wounded/dry skin and it also maintains moisture to help healing.

Good information.  That's one reason why a visit to a derm can provide the best diagnostic suggestions.  smile.gif  Here, we can only guess.  There, they can examine closely and generally determine the best course of action.

I'm glad your derm figured out your problem! smile.gif
