  1. Day 7 (I think??) Improvements: redness of both current blemishes and scars is greatly reduced. A surprising amount of improvement for just one week. Let's hope that it keeps up. And that papule on my lip, it turned into a pustule, and then it went away after thorough non-picking and medicating. Negative Things: Two, I repeat TWO small cysts have appeared on my chin. I'm not taking any crap, so i got right on it. I expect to see the end of them within a week, if it keeps going like it has. I
  2. The thing is, I've been using duac for over almost a year, but I think that I just wasn't using enough. Maybe I should have taken the hint when I was still using the samples, 9 months later. And, thank you. That made me smile. I'm less concerned with the cleanser, since all I expect it to do is clear any oil or dirt. The moisturizer however, is something that I'm going to choose very carefully. I've been leaning towards Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, but I have yet to make a d
  3. I feel a lot better about this now. I'm trying to come up with some sort of system that works well for me, and so far, I'm having some early results. But, thanks to everyone, for coming and commenting and arguing and supporting/ I came back to this just now, and it went from 2 replies to 16. And yea, mark-ups are completely ludicrous. One thing that my dermo has done that's worked really well, is injecting any major cysts with weak steroids, and that wasn't expensive at all, only $20 a shot.

  5. So, this is day 2 of my new routine. I still haven't chosen a moisturizer. For now I'm using this stuff that I got with a kit a while back, and it doesn't work very well. I'm making a trip to the drug store within the next couple days. Improvements: Reduced Redness, maybe? It's hard to tell. Of course, expecting any major improvements far in is ridiculous. My forehead has cleared up a lot lately, because I've been pinning it back when I sleep. That's good, I guess. Negative Things: There's a
  6. I'm currently prescribed Retin-A, Duac Gel, and Doxy. I've been on each for about a year, and have seen little to no improvement. I think I'm going to try and come up with a more affordable, personally designed regimen. Hopefully, it'll work. If it doesn't, at least I tried.
  7. I've been on Doxy for a while. I didn't see any results, but I also didn't see any side effects, even though I never take it with food. It's primarily an anti-biotic, but it's prescribed by dermatologists for it's weak anti-inflammatory effects.
  8. I'm trying to come up with an over the counter, personal regimen that will work for. I think that if I can design something for myself that works, I'll be really well off. So, here's what I'm thinking... Morning: 1. Some sort of gentle cleanser. (Right now, I'm using this stuff called "SFC Lotion". It came with the Duac gel I'm currently prescribed.) Any recommendations? 2. Any morning prescriptions, topical or otherwise. 3. Moisturizer? Evening:
  9. I've gone to one three times now, and he says that he thinks accutane can help me a lot, but my insurance will not cover it, so it'd be in upwards of 1000 dollars a month. Obviously, that isn't doable. I have gotten steroid shots to cysts before, and it helped an incredible amount, but I'm not able to get a shot for all of my cysts. I hear everyone talking about how much Accutane or some other drug did for them, and they say that other people should try it. I would love to, but I can't. Has a
