  1. Have you thought about taking the accutane and having the baby through a surrogate mother? I don't know if surrogate is the right term though - I mean when another woman is pregnant with your baby, but it's definitely YOUR eggs and your husband's. Could be an idea.

  2. i'm just curious, why are you posting and not your daughter? and i hope you don't tell her that she looks like she has chicken pox to her face. use a sunscreen in the morning (i heard good things about neutrogena healthy defense), and after school a thicker moisturizer, and finally before sleep the retin a micro.

  7. i dont understand.. its definitely not the beginning for me anymore, its been six weeks, thats what scares me about hwether i should stick with it or not! but i am definitely taking ur advice on the soap thing, in fact in leaving right now to get some.
  8. ive been on it for six weeks now, and i definitely dont wanna discourange you but for me it's been realy tough! look at the other retin a micro topic on this board, maybe you'll get an idea of what im going through. but definitely try it, it seesm to work for tons of other people in here!
  9. oh my gosh!!! i can't believe it, ive used lever 200 for 2 years now! i cant believe it was actually aggravating my skin the whole damn time. thank u soso much for the news. i realy hope this helps. i guess that means i shouldnt quit the retina huh?! its like my last resort...
