I'm going to my doctor 2moro for mild, occasionally moderate acne. Hell either fix it, or decided to send me to a derm. I was hoping hed prescribe me some Vitamin supplements like B5, K, A, and E. ALthough If he doesnt I can proaably go to the helath store.....

If he decides to give me BC or Epiduo, I will most definately deny it. I cant handle BP, and I just dont want anymore crappy ass creams on my face that only IRRITATE the living shit out of it.

Nor do I want a BC method...

Stop suing the product.Duh. I promise itll get much better. STO PWITH THE CHEMICALS! Get osme Cetaphil and possibly Tea Tree Oil and leave ur face alone.

You have a couple of choices: try alternative methods as suggested OR LISTEN TO YOUR DERM. Your acne didn't get that way overnight, and it is not going to go away quickly either. Maybe the Derm is on to something, he or she only went to medical school and then did a residency in dermatology.

If you are still in the same shape as you are now in another month or two look at other treatment options or get a new derm.

It's very simple, you want instant results and there are no instant results with severe acne regadless of which way you go.

In the adult world you will find that things usually take time. Welcome to life !

That's too severe. I guess you should consult an expert dermatologist to identify the right treatment for your problem.

It is better to be beautiful than good, but it is better to be good than ugly.

until you get there try Bactine spray, it will kill the bacterial infection in a couple of days, and leave it feeling better, not itchy or achy. It has worked really really well for me so far.
