What would you do?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Well I had a good old moan yesterday as I was feeling kinda down about my acne, especially with all the xmas partys and family gatherings etc.

Has anyone been on Dianette bc pill for their acne? I am on my third pack and it has got worse then ever! My doc says it takes three months at least to kick into your system, but so far NO Way!

Also I am on Lymecycline, anti-biotics could it be this also? only been on this for two weeks though.

Any girlie support will be appreciated.

Thanks and merry xmas!

I was told up to 8 months in most cases for it to be working really well (IF it's going to work)

are the anti-biotics not helping either?

if that doesn't work, and you've tried other prescriptions as well, you might want to consider accutane if your acne is bad or stubborn enough.

you shouldn't have to cry about your acne, my heart goes out to you!

What is your diet like? I wholeheartedly recommend the green smoothie for acne- I am a 28 year old female, and started developing acne at age 19, which got REALLY bad before my period. It got progressively worse over the years, and I tried EVERYTHING- all types of lotions, herbal remedies, antibiotics, expensive cleansers, etc. The ONLY thing that has worked for me is the green smoothie- you can find many posts on it in the diet/holistic health section. It's really easy to make- all you need is a blender, kale, apple, banana, and pear.

I've never been on the pill, so I can't answer your question about Dianette, but I wish you the best of luck!

I haven't been on that BC, but I've tried about five different ones (different reasons) but none of them helped an ounce with my skin. It actually seems like this last one I've been on makes it worse because I get a BAD breakout before my period, then it pretty much takes until the next period to even clear up, so no help there. I just hate switching around and messing with hormones.

hello everyone

Been on doxycycline for 2months, it took a lot of the redness away quickly and the acne reduced. The lumps which i had under the skin has all gone, its nearly all smooth. Went to my doc today, he gave me lymecycline for 2 months. Im hoping this will do the trick.

For doxy to work, it takes about 4 weeks to start working, i would say 5-6 weeks you start to see your skin change, not as red, less breakouts, breakouts may last longer, bad breakouts now and then, it happends.

Give me your views on "lymecycline" and is it stronger than doxy?

Thanks
