  1. Life after accutane a log for me!

    day 6 diet changes: 2 eggs and vine tomatoes green smoothie - kale, banana, half avocado - every morning no pukka tea moisturiser on cheeks now using cetaphil cream
  2. Week 8 Lymecycline & Differin

    using retinoids can be a a very up and down process having been on them a lot over the years and spoken to countless people on them. Keep your head up and see what happens in the coming weeks maybe by week 12 if you are not happy/ there isn't much improvement ask for a change - epiduo might help it has the adapelene part as well as bp.

    a friend once had a similar issue - he tried BP which you can get over the counter and it helped a lot. Though it maybe your diet which is the root cause maybe so worth looking into that or if you wear a hat or cover your forehead and sweat a lot i.e cycling with a helmet on
