In Topic: My Skin Is Causing Me A Lot Of Anxiety

Yesterday, 08:25 PM

Thank you again everyone for the replies, and I am sorry for those of you who have been in a similar situation to me. Having acne and scars is horrible, but when you have anxiety on top of it, it feels like hell. I started taking the Belara, and so far I have no hair loss, but I am being incredibly impatient because I am scarring. Next Monday I have decided to get the blood work done for accutane, and in the month wait period I will see how the Belara works. If anything, the accutane will clear me up and the Belara will keep me clear. I'm really not too worried about my acne. Acne sucks, but it is not permanent. My new shallow scars are the source of almost all my recent anxiety and panic attacks. I feel like I've scarred my face and I'm feeling very hopeless about ever having beautiful skin again. I'm scared no scar treatments will ever work for me.


In Topic: Cb-03-01 Topical Anti-Androgen

Yesterday, 10:21 AM

CB-03-01 is a new topical ant-androgen which is about to be entering phase 3 clinical trials. It already completed clinical trials in Europe and was shown to be more effective than both placebo and retin-a. Here's the study: http://www.cosmophar...JD-20110608.pdf
 
I personally cannot wait for this stuff to come out because I cannot use hormonal treatments because they cause me to lose my hair. They clear me completely, though, and so I am hopeful CB-03-01 would do the same. 
 
Does anyone know how long phase clinical trials take to complete? I think the company that owns CB-03-01 said they were aiming to have it available to the public by 2015, but I'm not sure if they are falling behind.


In the mean time while you are waiting for this to complete clinical trails, you could use topical Spirolactone. It is also an anti androgen.

Spiro makes my hair fall out.


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Not feeling good today. Picked after 11 days of not picking. I'm mad at myself for picking, but at the same time it feels like a relief to have all that junk out of my pores. I really wish they would stop filling up. They're starting to scar :(


In Topic: Belara Log

29 August 2014 - 01:30 PM

I'm glad to have so many people interested in my progress :)

 

Tonight will be my 6th night taking Belara and I haven't noticed any significant differences yet. My skin and hair do seem a little less oily, but my skin is still as clogged as ever. It's actually more clogged than before I took accutane the first time. I hope the clogs will start improving soon.


In Topic: Acne Is Directly Related To Orgasm Frequency. . .

I see lots of guys talking about this, and I don't doubt that for some masturbation and orgasm could make acne worse, but I always wonder how you guys think abstaining from it in the long run is really reasonable. What happens when you have girlfriends or wives?
