I was using Proactiv for a while but it got my skin really red and dry and flaky and it just got worse. Then i just used a cleanser and benzoyl peroxide that didnt help either made it even worse. I used Nature's Cure Acne treatment for males and well that turned out alrite but it gotten worse. after that i just gave up and used a 3 in 1 Cleanser by Clearasil and now i just bought some pills by Loma Lux nd using a daily face wash in the mornin and i use the St.Ives Gentle Scrub before i go to bed and the 3 in 1 cleanser..

Hi!

Your skin looks a little bit dry and painful. You are handsome even if you have some pimples,believe me. I think that you must try Accutane. I know someone who had very bad acne and took Accutane to get rid of his big problem. Now,he is clear and very self-confident. I take Accutane and it works. You won't regret!

Good Luck :(

bye

I have had acne since I was around 14 years old. Im 23 now. Tried everything from Micocycline to Bactrim (which i was on for 3 years and my derm said she wanted me off it now since its a very dangerous oral drug).

My acne is not like yours, its more oily than dry. I started on accutane yestarday and I already see massive results. In fact, 3 hours after I took my first pill, my face was entirley comfortable and not oily at all.

I have tried everything and I think you should try accutane right away. Side effects like dryness are not worth going through this.

If your doctor asks you to try minocycline or bactrim and/or topicals, I would honestly skip as it really doesnt work that well (at least for me and many others with sever acne) that and try to ask for accutane right away. Trust me, it really works fast and you will be happy you did.

good luck.

actually, topicals and accutane would probably clear your face entirely. if your face is more oily, try benzamycin. if your face is more dry, try a few other topicals with the accutane such as differen gel or tazorac cream or something.

Accutane has cleared me up! Believe me, like you, i tried most products by - Neutrogena /Clearasil / Oxy / Johnsons etc, and nothing worked, it seemed to get worse. I also did 4-5 Months of B5, again no result!

Accutane has all kind of possible side effects, but im not to sure what the percentage is that you will suffer from them, the ONLY side effect i encountered was dryness, and i think all tane users suffer from that?

You may achieve results with B5, some people on here have said it has worked for them, but it didnt work for me.

After the first month or so on accutane, i got a MEGA breakout, this is common - shows that its started to work.

I didnt really notice any difference until about 3 months, maybe just after, i still kept breaking out, but it was not as bad as it used to be.

I stopped having breakouts from about my 5th month onwards, i still occasionly get the odd pimple though.

You could clear much quicker then me though, if you check out my album (first one on the 2nd page i think) you will see how bad i really was.

yeah matty, you have had remarkable results and you look great.

xak98x, im not trying to hype accutane or anything, but it definitely a miracle drug. Im on my 3rd day so far and the improvement is dramatic thus far. no initial breakout yet. no side effects so far, except for a tiny bit of dryness but nothing really significant.

good luck to you.

I'm about to start taking accutane myself and I'm really hoping it works. From what I've heard and it seen it works great. Let me know if you try it and how it works for you.

I don't mean to disagree with people and be "that person", but have you ever just used a gentle wash once a day and not used acne topicals? The thing is that your skin just looks irritated more than anything. From all the harsh stuff you've used like the BP and the scrubs ( i think scrubs are the worst for acne), maybe you should try taking it easy considering you haven't had luck with all that stuff.

I didnt think of that. You think if i use Clearasil Daily Face Wash does not include bp or sa will it clam it down? nd i didnt use scrub at all but i was goin to use the St.Ives Apricot Gentle Scrub is that good idea?

get on accutane my skin type is exactly like yours and it will scar badly

They dident have accutane when I was growing up all they had was tetracycline which works at first then you become immune and it quits.

If your derm will give it to you, great if not a mexican pharmacy will sell

it to you over the internet without a prescription(accutane).

Your type of acne can develop into cystic acne if not caught and treated.

Thats a very devastating type of acne that scars very badly.
