In Topic: My Skin is Awesome! Here is My Regime...

08 February 2009 - 05:23 PM

Thats really interesting. What is the treatment for that then? I had a lot of ear infections when I was little and took antibiotics.  Shouldnt the septra I take now take care of that.

Update ..I am still on the same regime, dr. added a special cream for my back....my facial skin is really great now. Rarely any pimples..the red marks all Faded too!!! My skin looks perfect and I get alot of compliments on it. I know I am lucky I didnt scar. I can run around without makeup or cover stick!

I still have some pimples on my back..not good. Lucky I have long hair that covers it. I am using a special cream for my back now. And I hope it helps.
I also still have some in my hair and itchy scalp but the head and shoulders helps a lot. But my face looks good so I am not complaining.
I will check into that staph infection, but it seems like septra would have fixed that?

In Topic: Exfoliation

From what I understand the azalex is turning your skin cells over more rapidly so to help avoid getting clogged you should also exfoliate. I use a clarisonic skin brush, but they are expensive (got mine on ebay) ...the baby brush method described on here might be a good one. Guess it depends on your skin. Some people like asprin exfoliation and others baking soda. My skin is very delicate, so I dont like to use gritty things on it.

In Topic: Neosporin

Some people have trouble with an ingredient in neosporin. I did so I use polysporin. I will dab some on the area and then cover with a spot bandaid and it helps the medication stay on and will help prevent infection and clean up the area!

In Topic: Benzaclin-Recommended?

25 July 2008 - 02:59 PM

I personally did not do well with benzaclin..but I dont do good with BP. It just makes my pimples look worse. But you may do great with it. Maybe you should try it on a small area for a few nights..remember it may look worse before it looks better. And see what happens and if you get a scar from it and if it helps.
Also there are great product reviews on these forums so you can look there and see the results others have had.
Good luck!

I know there are people here who do not think bactrim should be used for acne. However, I have tried solodyn and other antibiotics and none of them worked for me. I also had two courses of accutane which worked great! But then my acne came back.
My derm says he has patients on bactrim for years and though I am sure people will disagree with that...I am on it and plan to stay on it. My skin is back to looking good. I stll get some blemishes but not often. The derm said that acne had like a 4 month cycle so I would still see pimples that had been under the skin surface. I have some red marks that the azalex is working on. I spend a lot of time on my skin. I also use a clarisonic brush which I love on it.

My back does appear to have some small scars on it (have to wait till the red marks fade and then see) and I can only imagine what it would be like without the bactrim.
Anyway it is the right choice for me. My skin is looking beautiful and I am really happy!
