    It's possible to have an allergic reaction by getting whiteheads?

    YES!! IT'S POSSIBLE. Do you have any Benadryl in the house? I think if it's an allergic reaction then it should go down by tomorrow. Drink tons of water today. I hope you feel better soon!

    p.s. Did you just switch to Dan's BP? Could it be an allergic reaction to that?

    Even if I've been using it this entire time around my mouth? No, I didn't switch yet... same thing I've always done.

    Without accutane, nothing can combat this acne. The regimen wont cut it.

    IGNORE THIS PERSON. You are too early in the regimen to make a statement like this. Many people don't get clear until 3 to 5 months into the regimen. Accutane can take up to 8 months to get you clear, and there is no guarantee that it will last for more than 6 months. Everyone is different and you have to make it a personal choice whether the risks are worth it. Damn...girl...now I'm getting my hackles up for you!

    Anyway, I was going to say what Fuman said. I'm thinking you are reacting to something that you ate.

    Feel better soon.

    hey! i agree that it looks like an allergic reaction- DONT STRESS though...i know its tough but it just makes it worse!! As for the accutane comment....it really is the best thing...i know a lot of ppl swear by the regiman but i used it for a long time and it worked, but always came back. Now im on accutane and by 4 months i was clear, and there are more success stories w/ accutane that the regiman. but im not dissing it at all !!! I really wish you the best of luck!

    I used to wake up with swollen lips... i think it was the BP getting on my lip somehow. I also been having this itchy rash kinda thing around the corners of my mouth and the skin peels off and is thick. I never posted a pic of it though.

    Good luck with this- it does look like an allergic reaction. Did you happen to eat anything out of the ordinary?

    Yes, whiteheads can accompany an allergic reaction. However I mainly came to that conclusion because of your swollen lips. There must be a reason for your mouth being swollen, most likely you had a reaction to something..It could be anything that set if off though, thats the tough part...to figure out what caused this. I suggest what Celebration stated, get some benadyl and maybe put some cool washcloths on it if its really painful. Dont worry though, it will most likely go down soon.

    Good luck

    I'm not dissing accutane, either. Please don't think that I am! But if someone says they don't want to do something and asks people not to keep pushing it on them, then that is that. It's like my grandmother telling me over and over that I need to get married. It's a personal choice and it hurts that she won't respect my choice. But I still love my granny, and I still respect the institution of marriage. I just don't wanna hear it over...and over...and over....and over... lol. you get my drift!

    Its a tip, i had waisted months on regimen for scars, whilst i was still at an age to heal completely with accutane at the time in question. She is in the same situation. Scarring is imminent from the pictures.

    Hard to bare Star, this conditon can be so cruel at times, you win the daily struggle for months and then wham out of noting one day its somehow got the upperhand again. Like its just toying with you. All we can do is absorb, a cry and prepare for the round and give it all you got. Feel for you

    I agree with the other posts. I think that you may have had an allergic reaction, by looking at your swollen lips. It could be anything...new detergent (used on your pillowcase), a spice in a food you ate, possibly even an insect bite. If it doesn't go away, I'd go to the Dr. and see if it could be an allergic reaction. I don't think acne alone would swell your lips up like that. Especially since you seem to be doing pretty well. What kind of lip moisturizer or lip balm or chap-stick or whatever do you use? I remember using Mary Kay lipstick way back and my lips puffed up and itched like hell and I looked like I had collogen injections or something...I guess I must have been allergic to something in the lipstick...I havent been near it since. Also Cover Girl foundation made my skin itch and break out in terrible whiteheads. I think different people can have strange reactions to different cosmetics....so that's always a possibility too...just think....what have I changed lately? That's my best advice.

    THANK YOU.

    I'm half tempted to leave this site because it really pisses me off that people keep telling me to go on accutane when in my description it says that I WILL NOT and to NOT suggest it. It's annoying the shit out of me!

    I understand that people are just suggesting it and putting in what they think I should do, but when I, me, the soul owner of MY OWN body says that I am NOT going on accutane, then I'm NOT.

    Damn it, the regime is for everyday acne, not moderate / severe, Get on some antis, but shit if u'd get on tane you'd clear, BP wont clear all body acne.

    P.s. your waisting your time with the regime

    p.s.s getting on tane is a decision you will probably make sooner or later. If you get on now well you'll get done with it

    p.s.s.s. its your choice, sorry if i am disturbing.

    F :) CK accutane! My sister has been on and off of it for years and everytime she stops it...she breaks out worse than the time before. I have never been on it...too many scary side affects and since I'm in my late 20's I'm not down with the horrible birth defects it can cause, should I want to get pregnant in the future. I've been on the regimen for less than two months, and although I'm not perfectly clear, I DO see an improvement, and my skin has not gotten WORSE, which was my biggest fear. I like Tina's advice about spreading the BP everywhere...even where you don't think you'll break out. My jawline took a beating until I started spreading the BP down to my neck. Also I disagree with not using moisturizer. You have said your skin is dry and it would be a bad idea to stop moisturizing...just think of Wisconsin times 10! hehe. What makeup are you using again?

    Thanks for all your comments, especially on my latest picture.. Fuck accutane is right. I wish people would just respect my decision NOT to use it, it does have horrible side effects, and there's absolutely no way that it would be possible for me to take it, I work at a ranch all 3 months of the summer and am outside the ENTIRE time taking out trail rides, shoveling horse crap, on a lake or other such outside activities, they even eat outside. The only time I am EVER inside there is to go to the bathroom and to sleep, it would be impossible for me to go on accutane. People are fucking rude and can't respect peoples personal decisions and it's getting to the point on my latest picture where I'm thinking about leaving this site. I know I should ignore them but 80% of my comments just say "accutane will clear you up" and it's reallllly starting to piss me off. I have basically been using bp everywhere and I know I've been using it on my nose since day 1 because I wanted to keep it zit free, I really only have blackheads there which aren't noticable. I got Dan's BP gel today so I'm excited about trying that out as well. And as for the moisturizer, I do admit that the specific one I have probably isn't helping, but I think my skin would be way too dry if I completely stopped it, so I'm just gonna use less. Thanks again, good luck to you. Right now I'm using Maybellene, but I use Almay as well.

    I agree with Fuman and Tina, love. I think it's either something you ate or something that got onto your lip somehow. It looks swollen more than what acne can do.

    I say pop a few Benadryl (or do like will smith in hitch and drink it :) ), put some ice on your face for a little while or maybe drink a milkshake and get some sleep. If you don't look better in the morning I'd head to your family doc or to an allergist's clinic. And for heaven's sake, please let us know how you are doing.

    I love you sweetie, and I hope you are okay. And even though I am on Accutane, I think you are going to do just fine and EVEN CLEAR UP (for those doubters out there) WITHOUT ACCUTANE.

    HEAR THAT?! STAR DOES NOT WANT TO TAKE ACCUTANE. SHE DOESN'T NEED IT. :dance:
