The key to the regimen is patience. It generally takes a couple of months to really clear your face. It took me three months. My advice would be to just not even mess with the cysts that are still there. Just be patient... stick with it and your face will clear up. As for the moisturizer, I don't know what products are available in the philippines... cause I don't live there. but over here in the states, I use Eucerine Q-10 anti wrinkle moisturizer with SPF 15 and I love it. Hope this was some help! Hang in there :-

Leave the cysts alone, and you may want to also post in the international issues section bcs I've never been to the Phillipines, either. However, if you would like to send me a ticket I will be more that happy to go shopping with you. :)

cortosine iinjections only help temporarily. They calm down the cysts, dont actually get rid of them. So if you get an c. injection it will only help for a few hours and the cyst will spring up again. The only reason people even use them is for special occasions. For instance if you have a big date or a job interview and you badly must get rid of a cyst or pimple, the injection is pretty much designed just for that. Unless of course you'd like to spend 100$ every three hours. =)

here cortisone injections cost 6 dollars per 9 shots. what i do is to push out the pus after 2 days. the pus goes out fully without any formed blood!.. =) that way less scarring and not that seen by people. sometimes that is not adviseable too.

cool! another filipino. i haven't started the regimen but i'll try it. i'm under tea tree oil soap and clindamycin right now but clin is not clearing up my face. so i might avail of bp.

dilemma: PANOXYL or BENZAC? I haven't seen any 2.5% of Benzac here and there's one for PANOXYL but I've been hearing bad stuff about PANOXYL so I'm a little hesitant of buying it.

Help?!
