Hi.

I would like to know if my acne is classed as light, moderate or severe.

I am on differen gel at night and mynocycline tablets morning and night. 5 weeks in and no difference yet.

Also, what are the little brown spots? Are they blackheads?

In fact I'm not even sure if the red marks are acne, could they be scars? I used to pick pimples all the time when I was younger. Or are the red marks indeed acne?

Do you happen to know how to get rid of red marks?

Your acne is mild. You have a lot of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (red marks).

Note that we have a red marks forum: Red marks left after acne The header under the forum title reads:

Discuss treatments for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Also read the pinned posts at the top of the forum.

Also, Differin is a topical retinoid. It helps exfoliate and helps diminish red marks. Use it as directed by your doctor, if your doctor failed to give you instructions, use according to the product insert. Also Please read the following post on how topical retinoids work and why patience and perseverance is required when using topical retinoids: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Info-reti...ial-t98395.html

So I will keep using differen then if it helps clear red marks.

Over time I guess they will diminish anyway. Thankyou all.

Hi.

I am going to go out tomorow and buy a few things. Just wondering if their are any moisturizers or any of that aha stuff that will help with red marks. Chemist or woolworths/target/coles would be great, no prescription stuff. Also a non comogenic sun screen, whats a good australian brand?

Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

Also does anyone know how to get rid of big pores? I have thousands of big ones
