  1. Thanks for the encouragement! Really getting frustrated, tempted to go back on accutane..
  2. I have had cystic acne for 16 years now. I heard that taking MSM supplements would help but I am getting dime sized cysts on my face again. I have been on the MSM for 2 weeks now not seeing any improvements, it's actually getting worse. Anyone with experience on using MSM?
  3. I don't get it. I gave up gluten but my adult cystic acne got worse. Has anyone else had this problem?
  4. I finally found something that works for my cystic acne. I celebrated my 30th birthday with fairly clear skin. I swithched topicals to Tazorac with bp wash. I use the following supplements from my holistic doctor: Progesterone B (14 days before cycle) DIM Supreme Folopro (folate) Calcium D-Glucarate D3 2500 mg Cod Liver Oill I still have the scarring from 15 years of cystic acne to deal with but I am doing a lot better! God has answered my prayer. And when I say God I mean Jesus Christ!
  5. Thanks for the kind words Amara! I still haven't decided what I want to do but I will let you know my final decision. Thanks.

  6. I hope that whatever you decide works for you. Though youre cheeks are covered up in the pic you look beautiful from what i can see :-)

  7. Hey Amara, I'm doing good but I am considering going on accutane for a second time. We will see. The holistic approach is not enough to knock this down.

  8. hey how are you doing?

  9. Hmmmm, didn't know that. But I still don't want to go on it because of the affects on my reproductive systems. It's a woman thing....Thanks.
  10. Thanks, I will ask for that and try it first before getting on the accutane. Thanks.
  11. I have tried it all. I have cystic acne and have been suffering for 18 years with it. I haven't had clear skin since I was 13. I went on accutane in 2004 and it cleared up for a little but now I am desparate and am willing to try anything. I am currently using: Topicals: Aczone Finacea Clindamyacin Pads Sulfur wash BP wash I was taking an antibiotic but I stopped it because it wasn't doing anything. Herbal Supplement: Progesterone Cod Liver Oil Vitamin D Multivitamin DIM Calcium Folapro
  12. I am feeling bad today. I looked in the mirror and I have 4 active cysts. I feel bad because I am turning 30 next week and I have never known a time when I haven't had severe acne on my cheeks. My acne started when I was 13. It cleared a little when I was on Accutane but it came back with a vengence 2 years later. I was doing well last week because I started a new treatment but now I have lost hope again.
  13. Thanks for checking on me Amara. Funny how acne brings us all together. I hope that God double blesses you. Thanks for making my day!

  14. hi how are you doing, is the holistic regimen helping so far or is it too early to tell?

    I have been taking vit B complex and zinc and Spirulina, going pretty well so far.
