i think you're lying, i saw you post the same pictures of your acne because you wanted help and now you say you're 95% clear? sounds fishy.

So you went from no acne to severe acne to 95% clear in a matter of 3 months? WHOA! Any idea what caused your skin to break out in the first place?

OMG! when does the horror end. i felt like i was just watching a sappy romantic comedy with a happy ending and while i was reveling in the catharsis, some nutty rabbit jumped out the screen and yelled "syke!!".

what i'll take from this is that it doesnt happen overnight. stick with iit and over time you'll reap the results.

at least i'd like to think so.

I hear ya... happens to me all the time too. just when you think your face is starting to clear up, acne comes right back with full force and ruins your life.

wow....i hate to hear that it started again....you really had my hopes up. I pray that they clear away for you. So did you & your doctor come to the conclusion that it is hormones going haywire that causes us to break out in cysts? This is seriously a disease that I feel isnt getting enough attention from the medical community in the US. THERE HAS TO BE A SOLUTION! I have friends that eat nothing but fast food junk, dont care about their skin, and drink soda all day. They just get the occasional pimple!

Try antibiotics. The great thing about them is they start working immediately. While my acne mostly went away on its own, tetracycline has kept it from EVER coming back. Moreover, you can do whatever you want; break all the rules. Even if you get clogged pores, they never evolve into zits!

Also, don't blame everything! While large quantities of super crappy food will surely make you break out, going crazy trying to avoid any triggers made my acne and stress levels worse.

Hope this helps.

You are clear because of accuttane...Homeophathy is a pseudoscience, please dont give those advises if you dont know what are you talking about...
