  1. Hi yes I was put on tetracycline at first for 3 months with no sucess. He then tried me on sulfur/calamine lotion in morning and 15% salicylic acid at night. No success their either.
  2. Oh mate I apologize, I meant to say dermatologist. I dont know how I got them two confused. So yeah I went to the dermatologist.
  3. Hi. Im a male 19 years old. I'm from Australia and I went to a dietitian about 4-5 months ago with regards to bad acne. He prescribed accutane 20mg a day. The only thing it has done so far is make my lips dry. I go to see him again in 1 month and need to know what I should ask him. Is this dosage enough for me? I'm 6ft7 and roughly 220 pounds. I have a feeling I'm not on the right dosage. Should I be noticing a change by now? Thankyou.
  4. I have alot of pimples and blackheads, no cysts though. My face is really red and dry, I just hope it works,. I've read reviews on this site on some of the products and they are quite good.
  5. Hi all. I recently went to my derm and he prescribed me a range of things, if after 3 months they do not work he said I will need ro-accutane. This is what he prescribed me. Mornings - Benzac AC wash, benzoyl peroxide 50mg/g. 5%. This is a face wash that I put on, leave for 30 seconds then wash off. 6% sal acid, 15% prop glycol in 70% alc 200 . This was a mix the chemist made up, not much on the bottle except for its highly flammable. I rub this on my face in the morning and it stays on. B
  6. Hi. From what I understand blackheads are small red bumps with a black center, similar to a whitehead. I do not have any of them, how ever I do have many little brown dots on my face, no they are not freckles. Are these pores? If so, why are they brown and how do I get rid of them? Heres a picture. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/post-a19661-.html
  7. I think this goes for anywhere and anything. I do not care what anyone thinks of me, at all. If they want to look at me or say things who cares? Not me. You will find at college most people are too worried about themselves they wont even pay attention to your acne, if they do, ignore them
  8. Hello all. Simple question. Does Sexual intercourse cause acne? I heard because of the hormones with it some people break out dramatically after intercourse. Is this true?
  9. Hi. Your face is very similar to mine. What are the little brown/black dots? I have them too and they are annoying. Best of luck to you and I hope you can get rid of acne for good.
  10. Hi. I am currently using mynocycline tabs twice a day and differen gel at night. Here are some pictures of scars and blackheads on my face. http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/3307/sdc14156j.jpg http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/790/sdc14157.jpg http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/6907/sdc14163.jpg Will differen get rid of the scars or should I try aloe vera plant or something? I wash my face twice daily with nivea refracting cleansing lotion, but nothing seems to get rid of them. thanks
  11. Hi. I have heard rubbing aloe vera sap on a big pimple scar will reduce redness and help it go away. Can I use home grown aloe vera? Cut some off and rub it on the effected area? Would it have a better effect overnight than differen? I want to lose the redness in this scar asap as its very noticeable, for the best overnight treatment, is duac gel, differen, apple cidar vinegar or aloe vera the best? Thanks
  12. Hi. I have been using differen gel once daily for 5 weeks now. Combined with mynocycline tablets twice daily. My pimples and blackheads have got alot worse since starting, and my scars are redder and more inflamed. I know its expected to get worse before it gets better, but should it be getting better by now? Or do you think I should switch products? I thought it was bad for the first two weeks then it comes good, am I incorrect? Should I switch products or not. Also, does differen get rid of
