  1. What kind of lotion did he give you? That way I can ask about it! =)
  2. I'm currently washing with Cetaphil and Aqua Glycolic. I switch between the two depending on which one I want to use that day. I recently started taking less hot showers as I heard that might make your skin red as well. I'm also washing a lot more gently than I use to. If I keep doing this regimen do you think my redness will go away eventually? My dermatologist told me to just wash my face in either one of the washes I listed above and that's all. She also said I could put some lotion on if I w
  3. Thanks a lot, Wynne!!! Your a really big help!! I think I will start doing that from now on! =D Will I be alright though? I mean, right now my nose is hurting a little; I don't know if it's from the alcohol or from my skin getting dry on Accutane and my glasses rubbing against it. It doesn't look irritated or red or anything though.
  4. Ok, so I'm sure I'm not the only one here who has severe acne and has to wear glasses too. What I want to know is, how do you go about cleaning your glasses? I have school so of course they get pretty dirty with dust and such. For a while now I just put rubbing alcohol on them (I think I may put too much on there; sometimes I find myself drenching them 0_0). But after-wards I always dry them clean with a tissue or face rag. Do you think cleaning my glasses like this is ok? Also, do you think it

  6. Ok, I just finished cleaning the laundry room; a.k.a wiping off the dryer from all the lent. I'm worried that some of the lent from the dryer may have gotten on my face while I was cleaning it; some floated into the air as I wiped it clean and such. I'm not worried about the lent that came from my cloths and towels; I'm worried about the lent that my Grandma could have made from washing with her detergent and really strong scented fabric sheets. If any of her lint were to have gotten on my face
  7. Thanks a lot, Rydian! Maybe I will try that...But, what's a lemon mask? I've heard of egg white and vitamin E oil...But not a lemon mask.

    My Past

    Alright, so now I'm going to be talking about my past experiences. I will put them in order so it's a little easier to follow. 1.) Started getting acne at age 12. Not too much but worse than most kids my age. 2.) At age 15 it started getting worse. Began to get large nodules as my face started to get red and inflamed. I went to a dermatologist where he gave me 100mg Doxycycline twice a day. He also gave me Benzoyl Peroxide wash 10% and a Benzoyl Peroxide Gel to put on after I washed my fac
  9. Hello everyone! I'm very happy that you decided to read this. It's very helpful to finally be able to write all this down and get it off my chest. I wanted to talk about my acne and what I hope to obtain in the future regarding this problem. First off, I have been struggling with acne since I was 12 years old (I am currently 17). I am going to be a senior in High School next year and I'm in hopes of it being my one and only best school year ever. I say this because every year my acne and insecur
  10. A while back I was so fed up with my acne. I did just about anything you could think of for it to go away. I tried almost everything on the shelves and nothing worked. I even resorted to putting rubbing alcohol all over my face. This caused my skin to get very dry which later caused it to produce even more oil than it already did (I have very oily skin by-the-way). In the long run it caused more oil to build up which caused more breakouts to occur. I don't recommend alcohol for anyone! I guess i
  11. I'm pretty sure the washing products I use don't break me out; the dermatologist recommended ones that is. I'm just worried that whenever my grandmother washes her cloths in Tide that some of the chemicals may linger in the washing machine and dryer and get on my cloths and towels when I wash. Is that possible? My skin is very red also...Do you think this may have something to do with me using her products a while back before I switched over to the dermatologist recommended materials?
  12. I went to my dermatologist who gave me benzoyl peroxide wash 10% and also benzoyl peroxide gel to put on after I washed with the wash. After a while my face became really red. It also burned really bad while I both washed and applied the Gel afterwards. We discovered that I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide!! I have had this bad tendency of washing my face rather harshly sometimes in hopes of clearing up my acne. My face is pretty red now; I don't know if it's because of my acne or because of my t
  13. I did seem to feel a little drowsy my first few days. I'm on my second week of accutane, but it only seemed to make me drowsy the first couple of days then it just went away! I guess it was just my body getting use to it. I'm currently taking 30 mg once a day. You said your taking 40mg twice a day? I thought you were only supposed to take the pill once a day? I also thought it only went to 40mg...I guess I thought wrong lol. XD
  14. Ok, I will start off by saying that I use Cheer (free of dyes and perfumes>dermatologist recommended) detergent to wash both my cloths and towels. I also use Dounty (again, free of dyes and perfumes>dermatologist recommended) fabric softener when washing my cloths. I am living with my grandmother and when she washes the towels she will watch it with the same products that I use. Although, when she watches her own cloths she uses Gain. She also uses this fabric softener that has a very stro
