About see a derm

  1. what kind of antibiotics did your derm put you on perthpurl?
  2. did any of you with milder acne and who didnt experience a bad ib experience dramatic clearing within the first month?
  3. sure why not, apple cider does more than benefit just your skin, so even if its only the regimen clearing you up, it wouldnt hurt to continue using acv.
  4. so you get a prescription and have it sent to a canadian pharmacy, and its cheaper? ill have to look into that. thanks
  5. I have acne thats more on the mild side. I think im going to try a low dose course, Im a little afraid of the initial breakout, but like you im just tried of taking antibiotics everyday (which dont work all that well, only seem to make it "bearable") and spreading topicals morning/night. So yeah, I know how you feel, acne sucks. As far as the oily skin making you age slower, ive heard that before too....but im pretty sure i heard the amount of oil you produce does not correlate between how fast
  6. oh!, one final question. Once again my derm will tell me what to do ultimately, but im currently on doxycycline (been on it for about 3 months) do they sometimes keep you on antibiotics to combat the Ib...I was trying to do some research on Antibiotics while on Accutane but couldnt find much. I guess theres a slight chance of brain swelling : / but i see some derms doing it.. I defineitly dont want brain swelling.
  7. im hoping i dont get a horrible IB, ah that would suck. So for mildish acne, is 20 mg a good dose? should i go lower or higher? i weigh 125 lbs
  8. Ah : ) im very pleased to see some response. Honestly, im sick of my skin, i had a good..about 5 months of clear skin thanks to minocycline...and life was really so good, everything was so much simpler and brighter haha, i never dreaded going out. So ya i think im ready to take the big step towards accutane. Ill probably go on a low dose treatment. Im about 5'10-11 and weigh around 120-125 lbs, what do you thik i would go on? 10, 20..etc. Also how long would i stay on the drug? Thanks again, yo
  9. *moderator edit* Im gonna go to my derm soon, she mentioned accutane because oral atibiotics and topicas had failed, so im thinking shell prescribe it. My acne is mildly moderate, but its so persistant even though sometimes it looks "okay" most of the time it looks pretty bad. Im just tired of wasting my time on antibiotics and topicals spending all that time in the bathroom for nothing. My skin is my biggest worry, its on my mind all the time. My question to you all is, should i go on accutane
  10. thats really interesting bryan. Do you think you could find that study for me? : )
  11. haha thanks, yeah ive been trying it. I Like the way dans salicylic acid feels, i kinda wish he wasnt discontinuing it.
  12. Like the topic says Ziana is still not really working after 2 1/2 months, should i go ahead and give the regimen a try. My acne is like on the milder side of moderate.
  13. Im surprised no one else has said Dans Cleanser...His is by far my favorite. Purpose foaming cleanser is my second choice. I hate cetaphil, i used it for a while i have no clue why.
  14. Yeah the only reason i like NOTS is how it makes your face appear more clear....but i think dans is the way to go, it goes on easier, leaves no residue, and is a bit less drying and irritating. : )
