  1. you're probably right. the pollution where I am in Java is terrible. and they often eat on the road side, so the food is polluted, dirty and all deep fried as you say. using very old oil no doubt too ah yes i experienced the same. bangkok is like that often as well. and all the same additives and MSGs added too
  2. turkey and other med countries will be humid only for 3 months during the summer, and that is only if the location is within x-amount of miles by the sea. so i imagine your experience was being on vacation in turkey, hence being by the sea, and being there in the summer. right now the country is under snow.. not so humid. its dry at all other times of the year and always dry in locations not near the sea (desert and mountainous areas, for example). so you agree then, that your acne is less in t
  3. so south east asians have more acne that those in the west due to genetics alone? would diet / lack of access to medi / lack of affordability of good products / etc be any factor at all? i see these people in the street eating fried this and that... and so many of these people have a range from a few noticeable blemishes to very severe bumpy acne. honestly if i'd had eaten that stuff in my late teens / early 20's i'd have broken out 2 or 3 times heavier than if i had not, same as if i were
  4. Its just an observation But in my work I usually work in Asia and the Middle East I've found that people in the middle east or north african / med area have pretty good skin in general. It's rare to see young arabs or turkish or iranians etc with much if any acne. they are usually pretty clean whereas in south east asia, my time in thailand and where i currently am at the moment (indonesia), seems most of the people have some kind of bad skin! i'd put it down to the diet which contai
  5. geek lol btw, 10mg roughly per week give or take (if i don't forget, which i sometimes do), for the last 4 months. might lower it again and see how we go thus far - perfect skin day or night, i dont even wash my face with any products and my skin looks better for it, eat what i want, do what i want. fucking love it
  6. 'with my dr.' ha! i don't have a dr. i live in different countries as and when, no where particular for more than a year. besides, dr.s have absolutely no idea, including derms. i've probably done more research than any dr. i've ever spoken to. none of them know any more than whats written in the general guide books irregardless, i now take 1 x 20mg pill every 2 weeks aprox. i've been known to take 1 x 20mg after 3 weeks. the longest i have gone is about 3 weeks but the oil starts to come

    6. I'm not delusional. I just dont give a shit Ultra low dose, 10 years. However long
    7. No you won't. You will develop bone and joint problems (osteoporosis, hyperostosis, spurs, etc.). I'm speaking from personal experience. There are also a number of long-term studies which document this. I agree it feels good to have control over your life, I was your age when I stated Accutane. Beware of the price you'll pay later; the bone thing is not scaremongering, 2/3rds of long term users develop this. I wish I knew at the time. bone problems can be fixed and maybe you just have we
    8. Problem with doxy is not how long it takes to work and clear your skin It's how long it takes when you stop taking it for all your acne to come back
    9. Skin is still perfect I just take it as and when, I don't have a schedule or required amount. If I can feel it coming or see some dodgy looking oil build up, i'll pop a tain (20mg). That'll usually be enough for 5 days of oil free for me, with an unclean diet. It will fix your acne, but won't fix your life This low dose seems to have no visible side effects, but I wonder every now and again if it does still trigger depression. Most of the time it's my own fault as I have nothing to be depress
    10. my gf would be very unhappy if she didnt get it at least twice a day. so that must mean i'd be fuked if i thought that had anything to do with my skin but good luck though, in all honesty.
    11. i dont get this board sometimes. you guys who abstain from masturbating because you think it affects your skin, what are you going to do when you get a gf or wife? never have sex because you think it'll make you break out?
    12. i'm doing the same, been going since oct 2010 but have been experimenting with different levels of dosage. due to the severity of my problem i cannot go less than 40mg per week i have discovered 40mg (2x 20mg, 1 on tueday and 1 on friday, for example). with this i can almost eat what i want (although i prefer not to as i dont want to get fat lol) and remain totally clear. i'm 26 now so i don't know how long i will have to do this for (i have tried lowering the dose and it comes back withi
    13. i wouldn't mind seeing some evidence of that i have about 4.5 boxes prescribed by the derm. so should last me 4 or 5 months after that, who knows - but if i see any acne then i'm going to get more but you have to ask the question... what is more important in life... lower health and amazing life... or good health and completely shit worthless life
    14. is this actually true? if so, i must never marry and have kids with someone who had acne in their past. i would never want my affliction to be knowingly passed down onto my kid(s). not because i'm shallow and i want my kids to be... but because i know how it makes your life miserable and basically completely ruins your life from age 14 to 24+ for some people. school years meant to be the best years of your life? haha yeah right!!! but i'd love my kids to have that great 'best years o
