Red marks. Help me! Pics included

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Any advice on what to do would be appreciated....because....well...i'm completely lost.

The red marks are really bad. Any ways to make them go lighter?

I'm on trimethoropin (if thats how u spell it) 300mg twice a day.

I think i need acutane.

Thanks for you time, John

Nice one.

Sounds like you had a close call.

I checked out that site and i'm probably going to get the

Intense Mini-Peel Lactic 40%......because it says its good for first time users.....

I've got pretty oily skin and its sensitive...Any one got any ideas on which peel....Lactic....or....Glycolic?

Sorry to be a pain but i have another question...

Is it ok to use whilst im on Trimethropin 300mg Twice a day?

Thanks again.

P.S. 1/4 ounce bottle shipped to my front door is = $16.75....thats £8.55......

i love the exchange rate at the moment :D:D:D haha!

i think u culd use a higher percentage on your body, 30 glycolic and 40 lactic r better for your face for first time users

What has happened to you!

I don't think those are the redmarks left from acne (sorry if they really are)!

You need to go to visit a derm, and get laser!

Peel does nothing for that!

Good Luck!

Tell me about it!!!!!

My appointment with the dermatologist is Jan 31st 2007.

But as far as im concerned the NHS is crap.

I'm thinking about going to Harley Street in London to the Private Clinic.

The Private Clinic

What's peoples opinions on the Private Clinic? Anyone been?

I would be apprehensive about trying any at home peels just for the moment. Especially seeing you said you have sensitive skin.

Your red marks do look active to me too and look deep. I would wait for the dermatologist appointment to be honest. I know that January 31st is a long time off but i'm sure if you've waited this long, another 20 or so days shouldnt be too hard. NHS is the equivalent of government funded care right? Can you go to a private dermatologist?

Thanks 'Nem13'.

Yes the NHS is government funded care and because

i'm a student in full time education I get all prescriptions free :)

Good point about waiting for the appointment. Ive been waiting

for like 3months, so on the scale of things it's soon really!

I'm going to see what the NHS dermatologist says. Hopefully she'll

be a great help and prescribe me sum kinda magical acne cure.....!

But if not i'll just go private.

Has anyone been to Harley Street in London to the Private Clinic?

Thanks for you input peeps!

I'd love to go to the beach but i live like 3 hours away from the nearest coast.

Would a salt water solution be any good? I read about aspirin and water too...

but i don't know...i'm just counting down the days to the dermatologist to be honest...

28 days.

Eh i dont know. I looked in the mirror just a min ago and i was like....hmmm

why do i have such good teeth (not one filling!)...and then i thought....i would

totally swap perfect teeth for perfect skin! Just thought i'd share that with people-

i'm bored!.

if i didn't have my white straight teeth i'd want to cut off my head and start over..almost ;) those redmarks look bad, i'm really sorry that had to happen to you, if the peels don't work you'd probably want some laser done. if they're still active pimples on it, you'd probably be better off going straight to accutane.

Good luck!! :)
