^ Me after applying some bp gel.

What kind of acne would you say I had? Mild to moderate?

Notice that mine isn't that inflamed are big,red, and bumpy. Mine sorta looks like a rash w/ sorta a few bumps or something.

Yeah, i'd say mild to moderate.

Not really mild cause there are quite a few spots and mild is something like 5-10 spots. Not moderate, cause there isnt much inflammation, so no big bumps, or cysts.

I think you'rs is called comedomal acne. (or does anyone think otherwise). It seems superficial, it reminds me a bit to my acne.

Remember: don't pick. That was a big mistake i made for a number of years. I think most derms would describe a retinoid (like Differin) for your face. Just a thought, in case Dan's reg doesnt work out for you.

It's not even that bad. It's just bc I used bp and it stung my face a little.

I wanted accutane, but the derm said it wasn't bad enough.

Why should it be bad enough? If you want accutane you should be able to get accutane!
