    A super cool kid.
  1. I just got done finished accutane and I played 3 sports the entire time I was on it. I had no problems.
  2. I am on accutane right now and I get them on my stomach and on my arms. I am convinced it is from the accutane, as it gets better when I lower my prescription. I just use OTC hydrocortisone cream on it. BTW I'm glad I'm not the only one, I was starting to get worried.
  3. I asked my derm this because I want to get my ears pierced and she said to wait 6 months.
  4. I am in the same place you are right now, I have about half a box left. My derm told me to just wash twice a day as normal and spot treat with BP. The acne shouldn't come back as bad as it was, if at all.
  5. Oh, darn. I was hoping for the first option, haha.
  6. My derm said he wanted me on the Tane because my skin was scarring. Will Accutane help with scars I already have? Or does he simply want to prevent new scars from forming?
  7. 0.1% is the highest for both tretinoin and tazarotene. Perhaps your derm. put you on 0.03%? I'll be honest, I haven't heard of 0.03%. 0.025 yes, but not 0.03%. However, I'm sure it's possible. nope, double checked. it's definately .3%. maybe becasue it's differin, and it's adapalene, instead of true tretinoin.
  8. i don't think .1% is the highest. my dermatologist just put me on .3%.
  9. Do you think this will work for moderately-severe to severe acne? I have used it before for moderate acne and it helped over a period of a couple months, but now that my acne is nearly severe, I'm not sure it will help as much.
  10. Oh geez, I dunno if I can do that. Peanut butter is my kryptonite. :redface: But I'll try it for two weeks and see what happens. peanut butter definately made my acne worse. cut out peanut butter and *POOF* acne gets better. :) try it. i know how you feel about vutting out peanut butter, its the same for me. i think i was actually addicted to it at one point. but seriously, muster up the willpower and do it. you will not regret it.
  11. does anyone else break out really badly when they get a cold or the flu? im just trying to figure out if that's what's causing my current breakout. thanks in advance!
  12. thanks guys. looks like its time to order some of dan's stuff...
  13. how long did you try those things? i know i used to go through a treatment a week.... not good at all. make sure you give any treatment at the very least 8 weeks to see if it works.
  14. I think it's because BP works by pumping oxygen into the skin, which kills the bacteria that causes acne. Blackheads are oxidized whiteheads, so adding BP to whiteheads will make them blackheads. Does it make sense?
