  1. Well, You are talking to people in 2004. But the, let's say 'quality', of the responses to the OP is amazing. You'd think people in a Research forum would want to learn. Although it is a lousy excuse for a research forum. Most people seem to want to know about research for a miracle pill. That's why I hardly come here. There's better research in the Nutrition and holistic board. I feel dumb...they are from 2004 lol. whoops
  2. As an alternative I apply a decent amount in the morning, so that there is a chalky residue, and let it sit for 20-30 mins before splashing water on my face so that there is no more white residue. Enough remains on the skin for me to have the same effect...I'm not really comfortable with just leaving a layer on my skin throughout the day didn't really work for me.
  3. Give 100000 IUs Vitamin A/day a try under a doctors supervision for 3 weeks (or accutane) and no more oil. Then lower your dosage down to maintain the sebum reduction.
  4. Hey, just wanted to share how I've gotten my oily skin under control (fingers crossed), and the pimples that come along with it. One, before I go out I've been applying Phillips milk of magnesia every other day with my fingers, leaving it on my face for about 20 mins and washing it off before applying a little glaxal base (moisturizer) Secondly, which I think has done the most, is I've been taking Vitamin A (derived from fish). I took accutane in the past and its the only thing that really co

  6. I think you're all wrong! Accutane is derived from Vitamin A which can work similarly to accutane to combat acne (although it's harder to control the dosage of Vitamin A). Throughout history, Eskimos and Inuit ate large amounts of polar bear, animals with livers containing extremely high amounts of Vitamin A. Around 1950s, Eskimos were beginning to experience a strange plague of skin diseases, since they had developed strong livers that could store large amounts large amounts of the vitamin,
  7. It's way better now, just looks like normal skin like the skin on the back of my hand in terms of oil lol. And it hasn't come back at all (as of yet at least).
  8. Hey, I'm done with accutane, took my last pill 2 months ago. My treatment was 40mg/day for 4 months. My skin is completly clear, and I haven't had a single pimple for months while I used to get at least 2 new zits everyday and REALLY oily skin, very embarrassing. My back was insane, almost everyday I would have some blood on my shirt :/. When i first saw my derm they suggested accutane but I got scared and refused, wasting time on treatments like topicals, minocycline, and benzoyl perox
  9. If I were you and saw no noticeable improvement in 4 weeks I'd go with the accutane. Exact same thing happened half a year ago, derm told me to go on accutane but i was shocked and refused, and ended up wasting alot of time on treatments (antibiotics, topicals) that didn't work. I've finished my accutane course and am completly clear.
  10. ya give accutane a shot! it works best for our types of acne.
  11. sigh, I began taking protein shakes again in the middle of my treatment and my doctor said my creatinine levels had skyrocketed, and told me to stop taking the supplement. Anyways, you should be ok with monthly blood tests, but you run a greater risk of having bad results.
  12. Seems like acne is already ruining your life. The thing is you have cystic acne, which is very hard to treat with the alternatives, accutane really does this best which is why you were prescribed it. There is a risk for accutane, but the approximate facts are 90% get clear skin and less than 10% get really bad side effects.
  13. Accutane is still worth it for me cause it's the only drug that actually worked. I seroiusly wasn't getting any before it
  14. Watch porn lol? I have the same problem...even with a girl its taking some time to get an erection very embarassing. I started working out though...and it seems to help alot maybe by increasing blood flow? try exercising a bit each day.
  15. I discussed starting a topical regimen while still taking Accutane with my derm, and he said that some people do it, and some people don't, it really just depends on the individual and their skin. Since my side effects had been incredibly mild (minor dryness, minor redness), he decided it would be okay to begin Tretinoin incrementally and see how my skin adjusted. I apparently underestimated just how sensitive my skin is, because I am miserable right now. I feel pretty stupid now for applyi
  16. Ya, alot has come out. I think the hair will recover if its falling out from all over your scalp...if its getting thinner only at the hairline it may be balding (permanent). I only use shampoo now once every two weeks to keep as much natural oils as possible.
  17. You'll probably get it after a few weeks of taking it, sorry. Very high chance.
  18. If you're a guy, shaving does a good job of it, just a single blade. Removes all the dead skin cells stuck to the skin and lets it breathe a bit
  19. With the usual medical supervision accutane will not destroy your liver (monthly blood checks) or fetuses (birth control). And the hair comes back after the course. Stop exaggerating. Accutane has repeatedly been shown to work for many people, chinese herbs on the other hand...you. It is a last resort medication but this girl is obviously at her wit's end, don't waste her time. I find it sad that people are ignoring this drug as i did for a few years, it's because of fear mongers like you.

  21. Please...for the love of god... go on accutane it's the only thing that truly works. I was in the same situation as you, now I'm so much happier. The closest thing to a cure out there is accutane...50% of people who take it are acne free for the rest of their lives. Cmon now
  22. Yea...I got those for 3 months friggin annoying they take forever to go away. You just gotta wait it out...they will flatten out over time
  23. Ya yo, I have the same thing. Went to doctor, and I have anal fissures. I had it before i started accutane but alot more blood came out during accutane, doctor said cause of increased dryness...im sure this sometimes continues after the course is completed. DONT RUB VASELINE on it, doctor said it can make it worse (increases humidity increasingchance of infection). Get some lotion prescribed from ur doctor.
