Photo Information for Day 1 again


Recommended Comments

Hi,

I had acne very, very similar acne to yours.

I first used antibiotics and though they seemed to work good

after a few years my body became resistant and the acne returned

Now i'm currently using a topical retinoid [isotrex]

other topical retinoids include RetinA and Differin

I think you'd be a perfect candidate for that

if not try the regime

Yeah, same here with the antibiotics. I was on Tetra at first, then Minocycline, then back to Tetra because all troops had to take this while in Iraq, to prevent disease from inhailing the dust over there(sandstorms were crazy)

I have been on retin-A as well, irritated my skin. Havent tried Differin, might look into it.

Yea I hear RetinA irritates a lot of peoples skin

When i overdosed on Isotrex it took 2 weeks for my skin to adapt

Just remember Topical Retinoids need to be used on a continual basis

Try not not miss out on an application

and it took me literally 3 months to get clear [82 days exactly i thin]

Give it at least 3 months before you give up

A lot of people dont relize non-allerigc reactionary acne take 2-3 months to form

So you have to give most topical agents at least 2 months before you decided to throw them away.
